RFB - Technical writer

   The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Department of Human Resource Development is accepting bids for a Technical Writer and Program Evaluator to assist with program evaluation and reporting, an implementation plan, an Continuous Quality Improve- ment (CQI) Collaboration Project, and participation in the Multi-Site Evaluation (MUSE) system for the following program: MIECHV Home Visiting. CSKT-TSSD is currently administering innovative, prevention-based approaches to child and family well-being in a concerted effort to move from a traditional child welfare approach to a strengths-based, trauma-informed service delivery approach. The successful bid will have an “unprecedented opportunity to apply their understanding of child development within a life-course development framework and a socio-ecological framework. Life- course development points 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 within communities.”
    Successful bid must have extensive experience with technical writing, program evaluation and with MIECHV (including CQI and MUSE). Must also understand grant adminis- tration in accordance to the U.S. GPRA 2010 Mandates. Candidate will interpret findings from survey and assessment instruments in order to capture increases and decreases in child and family well-being. Candidate will facilitate community focus groups to collect primary data respective to each program’s grant specific Funding Opportunity Announcement. The candidate must have eight years of experience researching and implementing evidence-based programs that work within disparate communities to reduce generational health, substance abuse and depression issues. Candidate must also have extensive experience evaluating child and family programs and services in order to measure access, use and outcome data for continuous quality control. Candidate will provide CQI data to program staff, advisory bodies, individuals and all stake holders, so they can make data-driven program and service improve- ments. Successful bid must include resumes of any and all individuals involved in meeting work tasks and specify their capacity to meet rigorous program evaluation timelines.
    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 in the form of a copy of the certificate issued by the CSKT 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. Bids will provide proper and required business liability and Workers Compensation Insurance coverage and will be accepted until COB on November 27, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. Bids will be sent attention: Patricia Courchane, DHRD, P.O.
