I. Value-Bid Analysis – Evaluation Framework Development

Phase I: The scope of the request for proposal (RFP) is to establish an Evaluation Framework for the implementation of an “arthritis care model” designed to support healthcare providers delivering clinical services to people with arthritis in a health system(s) serving a high Medicare/Medicaid population. the development of the Evaluation Framework will primarily occur in Year 2 of the Advancing Arthritis Public Health Priorities through National Organizations project (Oct 2022 – Sept 2023). To better inform the development of the Evaluation Framework, the selected evaluator will be part of the Expert Advisory Panel/Design Team and participate in planning meetings to understand how the evidence-informed arthritis care model is being developed.

  • Proposed project budget for Phase I – Development of Evaluation Framework – must not exceed $65,000 for a project period of Oct 2022 – Sept 2023. 

Phase II: Depending on subsequent project years’ budgets, we anticipate allocating funds to support the implementation of the Evaluation Framework (Phase I) as part of the health system pilot in Year 3 (Oct 2023 – Sept 2024, potentially beyond).    

  • Proposed project budget for Phase II – Implementation of Evaluation Framework – must not exceed $150,000 for a project period of Oct 2023 – Sept 2024. Note that Phase II is contingent on Year 3 project funding.
