Title: RFP# SUDR-0120 – Assessment of Inter-organization Coordination for Substance Use Disorder Recovery
Notice is hereby given that proposals are being requested by Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County (HHC) and it’s public health division, Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) for the purpose of entering a contract with a business that will produce a document describing the existing inter-organization coordination of supporting recovery for persons with substance use disorder (PWSUD) and create a plan for improving it.

Many organizations form the service system supporting recovery from substance use disorder. Delivery of services is complex. Services for PWSUD must be customized to the individual client and involve many organizations. Navigating the current service system is difficult. Greater inter-organization coordination with multi-directional communication and feedback can improve that. The system goal is to assure quick access to coordinated services that are appropriate to the patient. The recent opioid-related scaling-up of services has increased the importance of coordination between organizations.

The project includes securing endorsement of the plan by the organizations that will have to implement the changes it contains. The successful respondent to this RFP will develop these deliverables based on input from PWSUD and the many organizations that form the service system supporting recovery from substance use disorder in Marion County, including service providers, housing or other support agencies, and the organizations or agencies that most frequently refer PWSUD to those services.

It is the intent of HHC to solicit responses to this Request for Proposals (RFP) in accordance with the processes and procedures, proposal preparation instructions, project scope, and requirements definitions contained in this RFP.

There will be a pre-proposal conference for this RFP process. Attendance is highly encouraged. The conference will take place on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019 at 1 p.m., local Indianapolis, Indiana time via WebEx.
