November 19, 2018 - 5:00 PM

The California Department of Public Health, California Tobacco Control Program (CDPH/CTCP) is soliciting proposals from organizations and/or individuals that are able to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the Priority Populations Initiative. The primary aims of the evaluation are to:

  1. Understand the outcomes collectively achieved by the Initiative, including adoption and implementation of new policies and the role of community engagement in promoting tobacco control policy and systems change.
  2. Evaluate how the award recipients’ scope of work (SOW) and implementation are related to the achievement of policy and systems change.
  3. Identify major facilitators and barriers to tobacco control policy and systems change in the identified populations and the respective regions.
  4. Describe the capacity of award recipients to address tobacco control policy and systems change.
  5. Describe the quantity, strength, and diversity of partnerships and collaborations on tobacco control policy and systems change efforts.
  6. Describe tobacco-related attitudes, behaviors, and environment in the identified populations and the respective regions.
  7. Assess the advantages and disadvantages of a targeted priority population approach to reducing tobacco-related disparities in comparison to the more general, multi-cultural public health approach of the Local Lead Agencies (i.e., local health departments).

The evaluation services requested include the development of an evaluation plan; using and interpreting existing data; collecting and interpreting new information and data; conducting data analyses; reporting results; providing recommendations to CDPH/CTCP; data dissemination; and translation of findings.

CTCP intends to make a single contract award to the most responsive and responsible proposer earning the highest score.
