How do I enter into a Quality Jobs contract?

Advance Notification — Filing an Advance Notification is the first step in the process. The Advance Notification is filed through FastLane. The Advance Notification must be filed before hiring, purchasing or construction begins.

Application — An application and fee for the Quality Jobs Program must be filed on the prescribed forms within 24 months after the department has received the advance notification and fee. Upon receipt of the application, fee, and addendum material, the application is reviewed by LED. Once accepted, the application is processed and presented at the next Board of Commerce and Industry meeting.

Contract — After the Board of Commerce and Industry approves the application, a contract is submitted electronically to the applicant for signature. Once returned to LED the contract is then sent to the Board of Commerce and Industry and finally to the Governor for signature.
