This document sets the terms and responsibilities between Business Services Collaborative Member (“Member”) and the San Diego Workforce Partnership for the Partner Portal (“Service”).


The Partner Portal is a tool to support the work of the Business Services Collaborative (BSC). The BSC aims to set the groundwork for leveraging talent and funding to create a cohesive network of entities serving businesses in the Southern Border Region. It does so by linking hundreds of job development professionals to focus on:

  • Coordinated business engagement
  • Diversity in collaboration
  • Exchange of information
  • Leverage partner talent pipelines
  • Professional development opportunities

The goal of the Partner Portal is to provide a centralized location for these activities, and to refer qualified candidates to developed job leads. This Terms of Agreement informs you of our policies regarding member commitments and responsibilities, expected behaviors, the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use this portal, and the choices you have associated with that data.

We utilize your data to provide and improve the Partner Portal. By using the Partner Portal, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with these terms of agreement. Unless otherwise defined in this document, terms used here have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible from
