RFQ and BPA

Employment Network (EN) Request for Quotation (RFQ)
Organizations and individuals that wish to become ENs operating under the Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program must submit a RFQ to the Social Security Administration (Social Security). The RFQ explains the duties of an EN, requirements for award consideration, and directions for submitting a quotation.

Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)
If respondents to the RFQ are qualified to become ENs, Social Security will award them BPAs. Each BPA has a 10-year period of performance.

Once awarded, the BPA becomes the EN's Statement of Work (SOW). It lists the compliance requirements of the Ticket to Work program (Ticket program) and should be stored for easy reference.

If you have questions about becoming an EN or the RFQ or BPAs, contact Social Security's Employment Network Service Branch (ENSB) as follows:
