New NACCHO Request for Proposals: Seeking Consultant for Upcoming Project

With funding from CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, NACCHO will be offering funding and technical assistance (TA) to up to five local health departments (LHDs) for a multi-site evaluation of the use of the Rapid Syphilis Test (RST) in nonclinical settings, with the goal of obtaining systematic information on RST performance, implementation, outcomes, and costs. This Request for Proposals (RFP) is to identify a consultant to serve as the lead evaluator for this project.

The consultant will develop and implement an evaluation plan, support data collection activities conducted by the evaluation sites through the provision of evaluation-related TA, analyze the collected data, and synthesize project findings into reports and a manuscript for publication. The proposal submission deadline is November 10, 2016. For questions about the RFP and application process, contact Nicholas Parr, Senior Program Analyst, HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis, at nparr@naccho.org or 202-595-1121.
