Description The purpose of this contract is to develop, conduct, and implement a Rural Health Technical Assistance Program to plan for and provide technical assistance to Network Planning grantees. The Network Planning grants are non-categorical; meaning the focus of the funded project is focused on the composition of a rural health network but the ultimate focus of the network is determined by community need. Due to the broad nature of the project proposals and multifaceted requirements for building and sustaining a successful network, the technical assistance needs of Network Planning grantees can vary from minimal assistance to more complex assistance. Technical assistance activities should provide Network Planning grantees with the expertise and skills needed to maximize their performance in developing and sustaining strong linkages and partnerships to address health care needs and access challenges faced by people living in rural communities. The TA provided shall focus on several areas of need that may include but are not limited to: community needs assessment, self-assessment, community engagement, network/consortia management and organizational capacity, continuous quality improvement, sustainability, leadership development, workforce recruitment and retention, developing unconventional community partnerships, Affordable Care Act and health reform, fiscal management, return on investment, meaningful use and stakeholder engagement. Additionally, due to updates to the funding opportunity announcement, it is anticipated that a significant portion of Network Planning proposals will plan to address and mitigate the negative impact of hospital closures and loss of ambulatory services on rural communities. The contractor shall work with each Network Planning grantee organization, FORHP Program Coordinator (PC), and FORHP Project Officers (PO) to identify the nature of the technical assistance needed by the grantee, how technical assistance should be delivered and assess the effectiveness of the technical assistance. The technical assistance providers shall coordinate with the Project Officer and grantee organizations in facilitating the exchange of information about program strategies, successes, and issues confronted and resolved. Services provided by the contractor will be implemented and may vary as determined by the needs of the grantees. The awarded entity will be responsible for creating tangible materials, developing sustainability modules, conducting program related workshops and webinars, and hiring an external evaluator to assess the TA process and the overall capabilities of the contractor. The tangible materials include but are not exclusive to a sourcebook and a directory of all grantees in the program each year.

BACKGROUND The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is located in multiple buildings and locations throughout the Washington metropolitan area and throughout the United States. FDA is in need of technical and non-technical Audio Visual (AV) and conference, meeting and training room support at its various locations. Meetings and conferences consist of a variety of types of meetings including; routine operational formats; executive meetings; public meetings where the Press is in attendance; and highly technical scientific presentations and work sessions where information technology, telecommunications and AV support services are required. Services shall include direct support for FDA personnel in their use of technology during meetings; in designing new AV systems; in the installation of systems; and in the ongoing service of equipment/systems. The purpose of this Statement of Work is to provide an overview of services to be provided on an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity basis. The consolidation of over 8,500 personnel to the White Oak campus has allowed the Agency to gain the benefit of accessing rooms on a shared use basis among the various component organizations located there. The Central Shared Use building and the Great Room in Building 31 at the White Oak campus are designed to provide shared meeting space requiring central scheduling and AV support. Additionally, the most recently occupied buildings located in the Southeast Quadrant of the campus were occupied by three organizational components of FDA including the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), the Center Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and the Center for Tobacco Products (CTP). To derive the benefit of shared meeting space, central AV and meeting room support is provided to over 100 meeting rooms in this group of buildings. A contract is presently in place to support the White Oak Conference Center and the Southeast Quadrant building with AV Support.

Shelter Care for Unaccompanied Children - Wrap Around Services

Department of Health and Human Services, Program Support Center | Published September 9, 2015
cpvs

THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP). THIS IS A PRE-SOLICITATION ANNOUNCEMENT ONLY. A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS WILL BE ISSUED VIA FEDBIZOPPS ON OR ABOUT September 28, 2015. The purpose of this effort is to put in place a single award, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracting mechanism in order to address potential temporary shelter and processing needs based on the historical variations in border crossings by unaccompanied children. General Information The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), Division of Children's Services (DCS) provides unaccompanied children with shelter and services until they are released to a sponsor while their immigration case proceeds. The Homeland Security Act of 2002, section 462, transferred responsibilities for the care and placement of unaccompanied children from the Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service to the Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). ORR has incorporated child welfare values, as well as the principles and provisions established by the Flores Agreement of 1997 and the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2008. In order to meet the needs of arrivals based on historical variations, ORR will design and develop strategies for bringing on temporary shelter beds and services across the country. While no decisions have been made yet regarding the need for temporary sheltering capacity in 2015 or future years, the statement of work for the IDIQ outlines a proposed contract plan for temporary, short-term beds and services should the need arise. Due to the fluctuating nature of unaccompanied children arrivals, ORR seeks contracts that provide the following services on a regional basis throughout the United States: 1) Wrap-Around Support Services Background In 2014, the federal government responded to a significant increase in the number of unaccompanied children who were apprehended on the southwest border, with an aggressive, coordinated interagency response focused on providing humanitarian care for the children as well as heightened deterrence, enhanced enforcement, stronger foreign cooperation, and greater capacity for Federal agencies to ensure that our border remains secure. As a result of these efforts, the number of unaccompanied children attempting to cross the southwest border has declined precipitously, and the federal government continues to focus its resources to prevent a similar situation from developing in the future. ACF is continuing to develop efficient, cost-effective strategies to address the historical variations in border crossings by unaccompanied children. Every effort is being made to avoid a future increase in border crossings by children. At the same time, it is important for the Federal government to be prepared to provide humanitarian care when necessary. During FY 2014, ACF operated temporary facilities at camps and on Department of Defense military bases. ACF worked with existing grantees that were able to expand their capacity to operate the temporary shelters while continuing to maintain services at the standard shelters they operated. Contracting for services related to temporary shelters would allow ACF to use a competitive process to identify temporary facility providers, instead of expanding existing grant agreements, where appropriate to provide care to children. The competitive contracting process could also provide more cost effective options for temporary sheltering. ACF is taking a phased approach to exploring contract vehicles that could provide flexible options for services on a regional basis throughout the United States. Scope of Services Wrap-Around Support Services: Under this IDIQ, the contractor(s) will provide all support services at identified shelter locations. The mission includes feeding, cleaning, maintenance and facility preparation, clothing, linens and laundry, transportation, recreational equipment, security, hygiene kits, medical supplies, and custodial services. Depending on the needs of the facility, wrap-around services may include portable toilets and hand washing stations, and mobile trailers for offices. Security services will include unarmed security guards and any equipment, such as closed-circuit television networks and communication devices as directed by the government. Maintenance and facility preparation services may include fencing for the property, painting and building repairs, industrial cleaning, addressing non-ADA compliance factors, and other preparations needed to accommodate the sheltering of children in the facilities. Anticipated Period of Performance: The anticipated Period of Performance (PoP) will be from December 14, 2015 through December 13, 2016 for the base year and four (4) one year option periods. The RFP (15-233-SOL-00531) will be made available on or about September 28, 2015 and all responsible sources may submit a proposal which shall be considered by the agency. The RFP may be accessed electronically only via the FedBizOpps website (http://www.fbo.gov). Offerors are responsible for routinely checking the FedBizOpps website for any possible solicitation amendments that may be issued.
