New York State Department of Health - Bureau of Tobacco Control
12/14/18 4:00 PM ET
Grant to a New York organization for the evaluation of public programs designed to reduce and prevent tobacco use. Applicant organizations must have at least five years' experience in the assessment of large-scale community health programs. Funding is intended to support the design of a comprehensive evaluation plan, including surveillance and performance monitoring. The goal is to ensure effective State spending on services and educational programs aimed at discouraging smoking among adults, young adults, and youth.
The Tobacco Control Program (TCP) was created within the NY Department of Health to improve the health, quality of life, and economic well-being of all New York citizens.
The DOH Bureau of Tobacco Control administers the state's comprehensive TCP to reduce morbidity and mortality and to alleviate the social and economic burdens caused by tobacco use. TCP uses an evidence-based, policy-driven and cost-effective approach to prevent initiation of tobacco use by youth and young adults, promote quitting among adults and youth, eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke, and identify and eliminate tobacco related disparities among population groups (including persons with low socioeconomic status, mental illness and/or substance use disorders, and persons with disability). Since its inception, the TCP program has implemented policies that have been effective in significantly decreasing the state’s adult and youth smoking rates.
Through the Independent Evaluation of the NY Tobacco Control Program, the New York State Department of Health seeks to conduct an independent evaluation of the New York State Tobacco Control Program (TCP) as required by Public Health Law. The purpose of this evaluation is to direct the most efficient allocation of State resources devoted to tobacco education, and cessation to accomplish the maximum prevention and reduction of tobacco use among minors and adults. The comprehensive evaluation design shall be guided by sound evaluation principles, including elements of controlled experimental methods; an evaluation of the comparative effectiveness of individual program designs which shall be used in funding decisions and program modifications; and an evaluation of other programs identified by state agencies, local lead agencies, and federal agencies. The evaluation of TCP should adhere to the general guidelines for evaluation of tobacco control programs provided by related documents.
The bidder selected for this program (i.e. the grant recipient) will develop and implement a five-year evaluation plan that will build on and advance previous independent evaluation services consistent with the evolution of the DOH TCP and the tobacco control environment in NYS. The new tobacco evaluation plan should be informed by, but does not have to mirror, prior evaluation planning and activities. The DOH is looking for innovative and effective ways to evaluate the impact of the TCP in NYS. It should be noted that tobacco products include electronic cigarettes (also referred to as electronic nicotine delivery systems or ENDS, e-cigarettes, electronic vapor products) and as such, the evaluation plan should include electronic cigarettes.
The bidder will provide Evaluation, Surveillance and Web-based Performance Monitoring services as described in Section 4 of the RFP (see Supporting Documents below).
The bid price is to cover the cost of furnishing all of the said services, including but not limited to travel, materials, equipment, overhead, profit and labor to the satisfaction of the Department of Health and the performance of all work set forth in said specifications.
