Questions
 
 
Submitted Date Question Answer
09/20/2022 Under "Allowable budget line categories for direct cost expenses. Staff roles charged to this program are limited to Project Director, 1st Five Site Coordinator, and Developmental Support Specialists" Where do support staff/clerical fit in, can they be included? Please review Amendment 1 for changes to Section 2.04 for how to describe staffing in the 1st Five Line Item Budget outside of the required roles of Project Director, Site Coordinator and Developmental Support Specialist.
09/20/2022 Can you please verify that the budget submitted will include both funding allocations in one budget? ( 1/1/23-6/30/23 & the 7/1/23-6/30/24) Applicants should refer to Table 2. Funding Allocation Table (page 7 in the RFP). 1st Five funding allocations are provided for each CSA for January 1, 2023 - June 30, 2024. Applicants should consider the full project period for funding allocations, and submit a full 18 month budget for the project period.
09/20/2022 On page 50 under Direct Cost Salary & Fringe it indicates that the roles limited to this category are Project Diretor, 1st Five Site Coordinator & DSS. Is it acceptable to put additional staff in the budget outside of these 3 positions such as the interpreter or support staff? Please review Amendment 1 for changes to Section 2.04 for how to describe staffing in the 1st Five Line Item Budget outside of the required roles of Project Director, Site Coordinator and Developmental Support Specialist.
09/20/2022 If the project has a DSS that works at least a .5 FTE in 1st Five is the Site Cordinator allowed to work a .1 FTE in activities outside 1st Five serving children birth to 5? Yes. The Site Coordinator is allowed to work up to .10 FTE on activities outside 1st Five duties provided that they enhance the service delivery system for children birth to age five.
