Excerpts from the RFP:

1.01     Purpose

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58820002 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified applicant to provide program evaluation of Iowa’s 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative.

The Department is actively working to strengthen our capacity to address health inequities in Iowa. Health equity is defined as the attainment of the highest possible level of health for all people by achieving the environmental, social, economic and other conditions in which all people have the opportunity to attain their highest possible level of health. In addition to evaluating the overall initiative, the successful applicant will assist the Department in evaluation of the 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative’s success in serving Iowans in a manner which improves health equity for Iowans.

1.02     Project Period and Contract Term

The project period shall be from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2022.

The Department expects the initial contract period to be a nine month term from October 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. The Department shall have the option to renew the contract at its sole discretion for up to 1 additional one (1) year term and 1 additional 15 month term subject to review of the continuation application, contractor performance and compliance with the terms and conditions of the contract, availability of funds, program modifications, or any other grounds determined by the Department to be in Department’s best interests.

The issuance of this RFP in no way constitutes a commitment by the Department to award a contract.

1.03     Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must meet each of the following eligibility requirements for consideration.

Eligible Applicants

Public or private agencies are eligible to submit proposals in accordance with this RFP.  

Electronic Communication Requirements

Applicant is required to maintain and provide to the Department, upon application, a current and valid email account for electronic communications with the Department.

Official email communication from the Department regarding this application will be issued from

iowa.grants@webgrantsmail.com.  Applicants are required to assure these communications are received and responded to accordingly.

1.04    Service Delivery Area

Program evaluation services will be conducted on the overall 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative in Iowa.  The department currently contracts with eighteen (18) 1st Five Sites in Iowa to provide 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative services in 88 of Iowa’s 99 counties. Sites and counties can be viewed at www.idph.iowa.gov/1stFive.  Based on the current Title V Child Health distribution of counties, up to five (5) entities, beyond the current 18, may become contracted as Community Planning Sites and/or Implementation Sites during the project period.  There is potential for the 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative to expand statewide within the project period, dependent upon legislative action.

Program evaluation services will encompass work with these and other stakeholders.  Additional information is located in Section 2.02.

1.05 Available Funds

The source of funding is State funds as appropriated by the Iowa Legislature and Federal Medicaid Reimbursement.

The Department anticipates up to $85,500 available for one (1) award for the October 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 contract period. Actual total award and individual contract funding level may vary from that listed or funding may be withdrawn completely, depending on availability of funding.
