STANDARD RFP FOR POS PROCUREMENTS

I. GENERAL INFORMATION
A. INTRODUCTION
1. RFP Name and Number: Prevention in Connecticut Communities Part B
2021, (RFP #DMHAS- PCC Part B 2021). The name and number will be used
on each page of the main proposal and cover sheet of proposals submitted
in response to this RFP.
2. Executive Summary.
The Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (hereafter
referred to as DMHAS, or the Department), requests proposals from eligible
applicants for the Prevention in Connecticut Communities 2021 Initiative, Part B
(PCC- Part B 2021) to implement the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administrations (SAMHSA) Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) to prevent
alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among 12-20 year olds.
This funding opportunity is intended for communities with existing capacity,
infrastructure and experience implementing the SPF planning model. DMHAS
anticipates funding up to eight (8) eligible applicants. Funding for each awardee will
be $125,000 per year for an initial contract term of one (1) year. After completion
of the initial one (1) year contract term, successful PCC- Part B 2021 awardees will
be evaluated and may be eligible for contract renewal that provides for continuation
of project activities, based on available funding. (The Department reserves the right
to amend/extend the contract due to available funding)
3. RFP Purpose.
Since 2005, DMHAS has promoted SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF)
model for data driven decision-making, capacity building, community collaboration
and ongoing evaluation for all its funded providers. The SPF is an evidence-based
public health planning process composed of five (5) elements designed to guide
communities through the selection, implementation, and evaluation of effective,
culturally appropriate, and sustainable prevention activities.1 The five (5) steps of
the SPF are:
a. Step 1 Assessment;
b. Step 2 Capacity;
c. Step 3 Planning;
d. Step 4 Implementation; and
e. Step 5 Evaluation.
DMHAS recognizes that not all communities are at the same level of readiness and
capacity to adopt a systematic public health planning process and to implement a
comprehensive set of evidence-based prevention programs, policies, and practices
to prevent and/or reduce misuse of substances by youth. The purpose of PCC- Part
B 2021 is to utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) to fund community
prevention coalitions to implement strategies to address alcohol use among 12-20
year olds.
1 Additional information about each of the steps of the SPF can be found at:

strategies and activities; and (5) evaluation.
