PSC IDIQ (Subcontractor)
The Program Support Center (PSC), a fee-for-service Government agency, expands the services available to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other agencies through the use of Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) Contracts to increase the number of Contractors and resources available to provide required services, and to enhance our ability to produce quick-turnaround and “real time” information.
The services under this contract include:
These studies require analyses of major policy issues receiving active consideration by key Government officials. The policy-oriented information produced by these assessments contributes directly to internal debate on budgetary, legislative and program modification decisions, provides background analysis and support for major administration initiatives and, occasionally, produces the information base for Congressionally-mandated reports
Policy assessments are focused somewhat broadly and prospectively on emerging issues and changing policy directions. Because timeliness of information is critical to policy assessments, these studies typically require special review, abstraction and analysis of current information and existing data bases. The major policy issue may be divided into sets of study questions to be analyzed in a focused and limited fashion throughout subsequent tasks. Analyses may often be iterative, as less fruitful study areas and data sources are eliminated from subsequent analysis. Systematic and in-depth literature reviews may be required. This work may involve quick turn-around, fact-finding or information gathering and analysis
Typical products may include issue and discussion papers, papers summarizing the state of knowledge or describing the current practice on particular topics; reports summarizing relevant findings and information while identifying current knowledge gaps; and formal briefings for high level policy officials
Identification of problems in and improvement of policy analysis may also be required. This may include researching and piloting new methods of performing policy analyses to improve their timeliness, reliability, and policy relevance; developing new methods of data collection such as electronic and web-based approaches; supporting work with various agencies to coordinate policy planning; and improving the quality and utility of policy analysis
These studies focus more narrowly on current programs in an effort to define issues or problems. These studies may be distinctly more management and impact oriented. The intended uses of program assessments are similar to policy assessments and may include budgetary and legislative decisions as well as program modification or redesign. Program assessments may identify Abest practices@ in a number of program sites, produce preliminary data on efficiency and effectiveness (impact) and recommend options for program change or subsequent evaluation.
Program assessments typically involve analysis of existing data or may involve limited data collection from fewer than ten individuals or programs. Data collection on a more extensive basis may be required, however all applicable clearances shall be obtained prior to commencement of services. Telephone contacts may be used to collect information from project sites or from individuals knowledgeable about the program. Site visits may be used to obtain information on program performance, to corroborate or correct information from other sources and to determine the feasibility of proposed measures and comparisons
Evaluation Design Studies and Data Collection
These studies propose technical designs (measurements and comparisons) to be used in evaluating a program, and tests those designs by collecting data on the program=s performance. This information is used by program managers and policymakers to select a design for full-scale evaluation if further program performance information is needed
Evaluation studies may require that Contractors identify and apply the appropriate evaluation methodologies and research designs for various purposes at the local, regional and national levels, construct and field test/validate a survey instrument, compile written survey protocols, train interviewers as necessary, prepare OMB clearance packages for submittal, perform extensive survey related tasks and perform the appropriate survey follow up, analyze raw data for significance and develop a final report of results and recommendations. Additionally, these studies may require the ability to access databases from appropriate sources, construct databases, convene an Expert Panel and/or a Federal Advisory panel as required
These studies may also include identifying problems in and improving the quality of evaluations and evaluation systems. Activities such as researching and piloting new methods of collecting data to improve timeliness, reliability, and policy relevance; developing new methods of data collecting such as electronic methods of transmission; working with other organizations to coordinate data collections; and improving the quality and utility of program data collections. Minor Information Technology requirements may be called for under this task such as encoding a survey into electronic format for use of laptop computers by survey personnel in conducting the survey
The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) stipulates that all Federal agencies implement a performance measurement system that will track agency and program performance over time, using quantifiable indicators. Services to be provided may include reviewing, revising and, in some instances, helping to draft the performance plans for agency programs and linking these performance plans to the agency=s strategic plan. Services may also include redesigning and improving the quality of the performance measurement process, performance data, and the system and method by which data are collected. Activities may include the collection and analysis of program performance data; field observation reports; advice concerning improvement of agency performance measurement systems and dissemination of these methods to other government agencies and interested organizations
Technical assistance may be provided in many different forms depending on the particular requirements of a given program office, including the development of written materials, training, convening of stakeholders for the purpose of sharing information, and other mechanisms. Generally, the Contractor shall provide or maintain a network of professional consultants and/or identify appropriately qualified experts to provide services on a relatively rapid basis to various program areas as specified by each individual task order
Services may include technical assistance to grantees in the areas of organization, administration, services provision, and research, demonstration and evaluation activities. Grantees are a wide range of public and private organizations at the State and local level. Depending on the program and the requirement, services will vary from technical assistance to State agencies on service delivery systems to technical assistance to small, local non-profit organizations that provide direct services to clients. Government agencies or entities may require technical expertise in the areas of planning activities, evaluations, speeches, reports and policy papers, etc. Individual task orders may require one or a combination of both types of assistance
The Contractor shall be able to complete both simple and complex analyses of Federally supplied and public access data. Both SPSS and SAS skills may be required. Tasks will vary from the straightforward to the complex. Typically these tasks will involve short deadlines. Analyses may include cross-tabulations, calculations, or reliability and validity, sample selection, power analyses, trends, projections, estimates, calculations of sample sizes, and the preparation of narrative materials, graphs, charts, overheads and PowerPoint demonstrations suitable for clearance and distribution
Translation and Interpretation - Services may be required for the translation of written documents and verbal communications to and from various languages. This may also include adaptation for the disabled such as TTY, sign language, etc. The Contractor shall assist Government staff, as necessary, by providing, installing and printing specialized fonts or templates necessary for various languages
Website Support Work - Services may include both design and maintenance of Government web sites. The Contractor shall manipulate and convert documents provided from various sources and in various formats. Services must comply with the Department and Government standards and server compatibility, which may involve liaison work with the Government=s technical representatives. Website support services may also include technical assistance for existing web sites previously designed and produced by the Government agency
Production and Distribution of Publications - Services may include design, layout, word processing, copy-editing and photocopying of reports, materials, brochures, or other printed or electronic materials. Graphic services, including those of graphic artists, may also be required for the preparation of graphs based on the analysis of technical data and in the preparation of flyers, posters, pamphlets, covers, logos, and promotional materials. All services shall comply with agency and Departmental standards and requirements, which may involve liaison work with agency representatives, writers, graphic designers, and the Government Printing Office (GPO). GPO requirements may also necessitate the Contractor working with the agency for printing, duplication and/or publication of materials through GPO.
CMS Measure and Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) IDIQ (Subcontractor)
The purpose of the Measure & Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Umbrella Statement of Work (USOW) is to develop outcome, process, structural, cost and composite quality measures suitable for endorsement by a consensus endorsement entity and reflective of quality care for healthcare settings, such as psychiatric hospitals, ambulatory care services, physician providers, accountable care organizations, nursing homes, home health agencies, hospice programs, long-term care hospitals, in-patient rehabilitation facilities, PPS-exempt cancer hospitals, acute care hospitals, and ambulatory surgical centers. Its purpose is to also support the collection of data that could be used to trend quality related to patient care for those patients that move across settings, as well as other uses related to cross-setting analysis. Such quality care measures would include any aspect of care that is consistent with the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Six Aims of Care (safety, timeliness, efficiency, effectiveness, equitability and patient centeredness), is consistent with the National Quality Strategy (NQS), and is in alignment with CMS’ three Aims (Better Care, Better Health, Lower Costs through Improvement) and Quality Measurement Strategy.
