RFP - Selection of an Agency for Development of Vision 2030 and Strategic Roadmap for Skill Development in Odisha

About the Organization:

Odisha Skill Development Authority was established to provide overall direction, guidance & implementation of skill development programs in the State by converging different sectors. OSDA works with an overarching mission to bring transformative human development through skilling of youth and making Skilled-in-Odisha-a Global Brand.


Located in Eastern India, Odisha covers 4.74% of India's geographical area and is home to 41.94 million people comprising 3.47% of India's population. Of the total 41.9.2 million population of the State, 26.8% is in the age category of 15-29 years and 61.45% are in the working age category of 15-59 years, indicating that the State enjoys a favourable demographic structure dividend currently.

Creation of quality jobs would require better employable population. Moreover, the need for developing the state’s capacity to provide employability skills is further accentuated by the fact that as per the census 2011, the population in the age group of 14-35 is going to increase by about 16% by the year 2022. In this regard, the State has undertaken several efforts to address the challenge of unemployment and improve the skilling facilities through an initiative “Skilled in Odisha”
