ix. Summary of Previous Assessments: : A brief summary of findings of previous psychological and/or psychiatric risk assessment reports with a focus on patterns of and antecedents of crime (dynamic and static risk factors), and offence dynamics and the offender’s understanding of these dynamics.

x. Cognitive Functioning and Personality: A brief synopsis of psychological tests administered and their validity, interpretation, and diagnosis where appropriate and applicable.

xi. Treatment Needs/Responsivity: Identify treatment needs areas specifically related to the offender’s risk, areas of strengths as well as the relationship between risk and need. The type and intensity of intervention required, prioritization of treatment needs, special needs with respect to treatment delivery, and responsivity factors should be described. This typically involves consideration of issues such as age, ethnicity, cognitive deficits and/or learning style, interpersonal style, mental health, motivation and prior treatment experiences as applicable. The Contractor should also document indicators/examples of behavioural and attitudinal changes since incarceration in both positive and negative directions as applicable.

xii.  Assessment of Risk, Risk Management Strategies and Recommendations: The results of the actuarial measures (both static and dynamic) used in the current assessment must be summarized in this section and must include an overall statement of risk that is congruent with guidelines or a current manual (if applicable) and empirical data associated with the tool(s) that was used. Reporting of percentile scores is acceptable while reporting of raw scores in the report is not acceptable under any circumstances. If applicable, an explanation should be given of any significant variance between the current results and those reported in earlier reports. This section of the report should also include an opinion on how risk could be best managed. This should reflect both actuarial and clinical factors, identification of risk factors and protective factors, assessment of institutional and community risk issues, and case-specific risk management strategies, including critical aspects of a relapse prevention plan, if applicable, and referrals to correctional programs, psychiatry, training programs, etc.

The offender’s ability to function in reduced security and/or on conditional release (including, but not limited to Statutory Release) should be considered, recognizing not only his/her personal needs, but also the community’s safety.

The Contractor should comment on ongoing treatment needs, whether special conditions such as abstinence from drugs or alcohol would be required, or any special residential, outpatient or other welfare needs that should be met in preparation for release or as a part of reintegration.

If the offender’s behaviour begins to deteriorate, the Contractor should render an opinion on what would be the kinds of situations within the community to which the offender would become most vulnerable. As well, if the offender is on medication, the Contractor should advise what would be the likely early signs of the offender’s failure to maintain to medication as prescribed and what would be the general, early signs of deterioration in conduct and whether or not this might indicate a drift back into criminal behavior;

xiii. Offender and Contractor Signature Block: The Contractor must sign the report and copies. Unless pre-arranged with the Project Authority, the Contractor must share the information with the offender and request that the offender sign the report to acknowledge that the information has been shared. CSC will distribute copies of the report in accordance with policy requirements.

h. The Contractor must only make recommendations for mental health counselling in instances where the offender is at acute risk of self-harm or harm to others, where there is a clear need for such counselling to assist the offender in maintaining mental and emotional stability or as it pertains to criminogenic factors and risk. Recommendations for counselling should be generic as to the practitioner who will be providing the service and for community release cases must take into account the offender's motivation (i.e., motivated offenders will not need this as a condition of parole). Should it be felt that mental health counselling must be a condition of parole, it must be established in the report that: 

i. The offender needs such counselling for safe reintegration; and 

ii. It is necessary to impose such a condition to ensure that the offender participates. 

All recommendations for counselling must include the reason for the need for this service, the goals, and comments on the possible duration;

i. The Contractor must share the final report with the assessed offender.  The Contractor must document that information sharing has occurred by having the offender sign and date the original report. If the offender refuses to sign, the Contractor must note this on the report and information sharing requirements will be considered to have been met.

The Contractor must advise the Project Authority if he/she is unable to share the reports and coordinate signatures with the offender. At the discretion and prior approval of the project authority, CSC will assume the information sharing and offender signature responsibility.

j. The Project Authority or designate will refer any questions or concerns the offender has on the report back to the attention of the Contractor. While under contract with CSC, the Contractor must answer questions posed by an offender regarding a report for a two (2) year period after sharing the report.

k. The Contractor must submit completed reports to the Project Authority or designate no later than four (4) weeks from the date of referral. The Contractor must share the completed report with the offender no later than 2 weeks after initially interviewing the offender. Upon request of the Contractor, and at the sole discretion of the Project Authority, either or both of these deadlines can be extended for a period not exceeding four (4) weeks.

l. The CSC Mental Health Department will enter finalized psychological risk assessment reports into OMS, and ensure that a copy has been share-printed to the Parole Board of Canada. 

m. If requested by the Project Authority or designates, the Contractor must submit a completed emergency risk assessment no later than five (5) business days from the date of referral.

n. CSC is required to complete Judicial Review Risk Assessments for some offenders. At the request of the Project Authority, the Contractor must complete a Judicial Review Risk Assessment and assume any future court costs related to the case assessed.

o. The Contractor must collect information related to the dynamics of the offence, identify treatment needs and risk factors and determine the sexual offender’s suitability for individual or group treatment programming. These assessments can also be carried out at intake or pre-release. When a an assessment of a sexual offender is requested the Contractor must provide, in addition to the above content, a comprehensive description of psycho-sexual development, sexual misconduct and offenses.

p. Specific content references to be included but not limited to in this description would be: history and development of sexual behaviour, information pertaining to prior child abuse, domestic abuse or violence against women perpetrated by the offender whether sexual or otherwise, information pertaining to co-offending and the relationship with the current sexual offense or sexual offense pattern, any attitudes supportive of sexual offending and sexual abuse, relationship problems particularly as they relate to intimacy deficits and social competence, factors relevant to their sexual offending (i.e., sexual self-regulation, intimacy issues, general self-regulation), general antisocial characteristics and psychopathology that may influence sexual offending and misbehaviour, and relevant medical history. Previous assessment results, including assessment of deviant sexual preference and prior programming results should also be considered. Psychological risk assessments of sexual offenders should attend to risk variables based on empirically based, clinician-rated measures of actuarial, static and dynamic risk that focus on sex offence specific factors where possible.

q.  For male sex offenders, it is mandatory for the Contractor to use the STATIC-99R for all sexual offender risk assessments (including non-contact offenders, but not offenders exclusively involved in child pornography). Dynamic risk must be assessed using a clinician rated actuarial measure that has been shown to be reliable and valid (e.g., STABLE-2007, VRS-SO or the RSVP). For cases where there is currently limited data specific to that population (e.g., child pornography only offenders) then the Contractor must use a measure that is based on the available evidence (e.g., CPORT). No sex offending risk and recidivism actuarial measures are to be used for women sex offenders.

Continuity of services:

The Contractor must provide a backup resource to ensure continuity of services if the Contractor is unable to provide services in person due to, but not limited to, vacation or prolonged illness (illness of more than five (5) days). The backup resource should be identified in the initial contract submission or within three (3) months after the awarding of the contract. Any backup resource must have the qualifications and experience needed to meet the criteria used to select the Contractor and must be acceptable to CSC. The backup resource must also possess a valid security clearance in accordance with the contract’s security requirements.

xi. Treatment Needs/Responsivity: Identify treatment needs areas specifically related to the offender’s risk, areas of strengths as well as the relationship between risk and need.

h. The Contractor must only make recommendations for mental health counselling in instances where the offender is at acute risk of self-harm or harm to others, where there is a clear need for such counselling to assist the offender in maintaining mental and emotional stability or as it pertains to criminogenic factors and risk. Recommendations for counselling should be generic as to the practitioner who will be providing the service and for community release cases must take into account the offender's motivation (i.e., motivated offenders will not need this as a condition of parole). Should it be felt that mental health counselling must be a condition of parole, it must be established in the report that: 

i. The offender needs such counselling for safe reintegration; and 

ii. It is necessary to impose such a condition to ensure that the offender participates. 

All recommendations for counselling must include the reason for the need for this service, the goals, and comments on the possible duration;

i. The Contractor must share the final report with the assessed offender.  The Contractor must document that information sharing has occurred by having the offender sign and date the original report.

m. If requested by the Project Authority or designates, the Contractor must submit a completed emergency risk assessment no later than five (5) business days from the date of referral.

n. CSC is required to complete Judicial Review Risk Assessments for some offenders. At the request of the Project Authority, the Contractor must complete a Judicial Review Risk Assessment and assume any future court costs related to the case assessed.

o. The Contractor must collect information related to the dynamics of the offence, identify treatment needs and risk factors and determine the sexual offender’s suitability for individual or group treatment programming. These assessments can also be carried out at intake or pre-release. When a an assessment of a sexual offender is requested the Contractor must provide, in addition to the above content, a comprehensive description of psycho-sexual development, sexual misconduct and offenses.

Specific content references to be included but not limited to in this description would be: history and development of sexual behaviour, information pertaining to prior child abuse, domestic abuse or violence against women perpetrated by the offender whether sexual or otherwise, information pertaining to co-offending and the relationship with the current sexual offense or sexual offense pattern, any attitudes supportive of sexual offending and sexual abuse, relationship problems particularly as they relate to intimacy deficits and social competence, factors relevant to their sexual offending (i.e., sexual self-regulation, intimacy issues, general self-regulation), general antisocial characteristics and psychopathology that may influence sexual offending and misbehaviour, and relevant medical history. Previous assessment results, including assessment of deviant sexual preference and prior programming results should also be considered. Psychological risk assessments of sexual offenders should attend to risk variables based on empirically based, clinician-rated measures of actuarial, static and dynamic risk that focus on sex offence specific factors where possible.

q.  For male sex offenders, it is mandatory for the Contractor to use the STATIC-99R for all sexual offender risk assessments (including non-contact offenders, but not offenders exclusively involved in child pornography). Dynamic risk must be assessed using a clinician rated actuarial measure that has been shown to be reliable and valid (e.g., STABLE-2007, VRS-SO or the RSVP). For cases where there is currently limited data specific to that population (e.g., child pornography only offenders) then the Contractor must use a measure that is based on the available evidence (e.g., CPORT). No sex offending risk and recidivism actuarial measures are to be used for women sex offenders.

Continuity of services:

The Contractor must provide a backup resource to ensure continuity of services if the Contractor is unable to provide services in person due to, but not limited to, vacation or prolonged illness (illness of more than five (5) days). The backup resource should be identified in the initial contract submission or within three (3) months after the awarding of the contract.
