Description:

The New York State Office of Children & Family Services (OCFS) announces a discretionary funding opportunity for qualified entities that can conduct a comprehensive statewide needs assessment (CSNA) for The New York State Commission for the Blind (NYSCB).

NYSCB provides vocational and rehabilitation (VR) services to about 4,500 consumers with blindness and visual impairment through seven (7) district offices located throughout New York State. Federal Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) regulations require that a comprehensive statewide needs assessment be conducted every three (3) years. The results and recommendations from this assessment are incorporated into the annual plan submitted by NYSCB to the RSA.

This advertisement is public notice that OCFS is seeking to contract with organizations to conduct a CSNA for NYSCB which should involve an evaluation of NYSCB case management data, along with primary data collection through the use of surveys and focus groups; leading to identification of specific areas in need for improvement within services and supports, program practices, and policies. The contractor’s CSNA will include providing statewide data as well as regional office-level data for NYSCB facilitating comprehensive planning and policy development. The contractor will work in close consultation with NYSCB staff and the NYS Rehab Council to ensure the accuracy and high quality of the needs assessment white paper/policy brief. Please see the Activities/Work to be Performed section for additional information.

The purpose of this Discretionary Opportunity announcement is to invite any eligible and interested entities who believes they can satisfy the needs of this program, to so inform OCFS by a Letter of Interest (LOI). To be considered responsive, your organization’s LOI must be received no later than the deadline specified on the first page of this announcement.
