Invitation to Bid

   The Confederated and Salish and Kootenai Department of Social Services is soliciting a bid to complete work on two grants. The CSKT-TSSD Youth at Risk of Homelessness Program needs a Data Analyst to complete a needs assessment. The Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program needs a program evaluator to complete an annual evaluation.
   The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Social Services Department seeks to contract with a Data Analyst/Program Evaluator who will write a needs assessment for the Youth at Risk of Homelessness Grant, to include a Theory of Change Logic Model intervention, to be used in seeking the Phase II program implementation funding. The data analyst will develop survey instruments, attend scheduled meetings, community focus groups, and other outreach activities, as needed, to assist the Community Engagement Facilitator with surveying and further identifying the area’s tribal youth and their housing needs at three age stages: Youth age 14-17 still in foster care who entered after age 13; youth aging out of foster care; teens/young adults up to age 21 who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, that have been homeless and who have had some prior child welfare involvement. The Data Analyst will successfully complete required trauma informed certification through training offered at TSSD, as well as understand the screening and evidence-based assessment tools used to assess youth at the above “engagement points”. The Theory of Change logic model intervention the data analyst develops will include data constructs and data elements to demonstrate that youth will achieve healthy coping strategies while finding stable housing, making permanent and healthy connections to their communities, securing education/employment, and developing social emotional well-being. The Data Analyst will also work closely with a collaborative planning group, as well as the area’s landlords in order to design innovative, alternative housing options for youth, also to be included in the Phase II application for funding. Work is to be completed September 29, 2015.
   Successful bids will include knowledge of Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Programs, as well as the various types of evaluations that are most effectively used to evaluate programs during process, implementation and outcome phases. Bids will also demonstrate a thorough understanding of the MIECHV mandated benchmarks and the CSKT-TSSD MIECHV program’s research question and how they will be included in the program evaluation. Work for this grant will be completed by September 29, 2015. Bids will also demonstrate knowledge of Life Course Development Theory and how it shapes the world view of tribal member youth. “Life course development paints to broad social, economic and environmental factors as underlying contributors to poor health and development outcomes for children, as well as to persistent inequalities in the health and well-being of children and families. The socio-ecological framework emphasizes that children develop within families, families exist within a community, and the community is surrounded by the larger society. These systems interact with and influence each other to either decrease or increase risk factors or protective factors that affect a range of health and social outcomes. Bids must also show understanding that coping strategies young people develop to manage challenges both large and small are learned in childhood, honed in adolescence, and practiced in adulthood. Those who have been presented with healthy stressors and opportunities to overcome them with encouragement and support are more likely to have an array of positive, productive, coping strategies available to them as they go through life. For children who grow up in unsafe, unpredictable environments, the coping strategies that may have protected them in that context may not be appropriate for more safe and regulated situations. For example, some of the internalizing and externalizing behaviors youth developed in response to living in unsafe environments may make it difficult for them to later succeed in housing arrangements and employment”.
   Bids will provide proper and required business liability and Worker’s Compensation insurance coverage and will be accepted until COB on Monday, October 20th, 2014 at 5:30 P.M. Bids will be sent attention: Constance Morigeau, CSKT-TSSD Department Head: 58256 College Drive Pablo, Montana 59855. Successful bids will be selected on Thursday, October 23rd, 2014. The lowest bid will be strongly considered. This is an Indian Preference Bid so those who wish to receive Indian Preference must obtain certification by the Indian Preference Office as a legitimate Indian-owned business prior to the submission of bids. Proof of Indian Preference Certification must be included with your bid in the form of a copy of the certificate issued by the Indian Preference Office. Be advised that evidence of your membership or affiliation with a tribe does not constitute Indian Preference Certification. The selection of the successful contractor and award of this project will be per the provision of the CSKT Indian Preference Ordinance 101A. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to obtain and provide proof of Indian Preference certification from the Indian Preference Office. Any and all bids may be rejected if it is in the best interest of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.

   The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Social Services Department administers a Youth at Risk of Homelessness (YAROH) Grant funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families. The YAROH Program seeks to contract with a Community Engagement Facilitator/Program Evaluator to complete final work on assisting the YAROH Data Analyst to compile and include findings into the YAROH needs assessment and Theory of Change (TOC) Logic Model. The Engagement Facilitator/Program Evaluator will schedule and facilitate final community meetings, focus groups, and other outreach activities, as needed, to complete surveys in order to further identify the area’s tribal youth who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness at three age stages: 1) Youth age 14-17 still in foster care who entered care after age 13, 2) youth aging out of foster care or 3) teens/young adults up to age 21 who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or have had a history of homelessness or who have had some prior child welfare involvement.
