Washington Digital Newspapers Metadata Processing

The Office of the Secretary of State, Washington State Library, is initiating this Request for Qualifications and Quotes (RFQQ) to continue a project which will enable OSOS to enhance the growth of the Washington Digital Newspapers program at the Washington State Library.

OSOS will provide raw TIFF images created to NDNP standards as uncompressed, 8-bit grayscale, 300-400 dpi, or born digital PDFs, which may need to be cropped & deskewed; have issue structure created, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and METS/ALTO data applied. OSOS seeks flexible options for in-house production so that some metadata processing projects can be done onsite by a small team of OSOS staff using the system concurrently with product support from the chosen vendor. OSOS will reserve the option to have select, larger projects processed by the vendor. All projects will then be completed and verified for best quality by OSOS staff.

The Reply Due Date is  9/26/2022.

See enclosures for complete information.  For questions please refer to the project manager:

RFP 23-01 Comprehensive Training Program for Tribal and Native Nonprofit Organizations and Charities

The Office of the Secretary of State is initiating this Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from firms interested in participating on a project for the development and implementation of a comprehensive training program for Tribal and Native nonprofit organizations and charities. OSOS records show there are more than 53,500 registered nonprofit corporations, and approximately 12,000 registered charities (98% of which are nonprofit corporations) in the state. It is likely that more nonprofits should be registered as charities, but do not know about the registration requirement. For more information see the enclosed.
