California Real DUI Court in Schools Project Evaluation

RFP No.: CFCC-071108-RB

The AOC seeks the services of a consultant/research firm of high professional repute with expertise in evaluating substance abuse or other public health-related educational programs for students. The respondent chosen will evaluate the three project program models and the overall project and its effect on student attitudes and knowledge of DUI. In addition, the evaluator will make recommendations to improve the project and identify the best practices from each program model.

This RFP solicits proposals from prospective bidders qualified to conduct an evaluation of a driving under the influence (DUI) prevention initiative called the Real DUI Court in Schools Project. The Real DUI Court in Schools Project consists of three programs: the Real DUI Court in Schools Sentencing Program, the Real DUI Court in Schools Trial Program, and the Courage to Live Program. The project is a collaborative effort among the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), California superior courts, and local middle and high schools to implement and expand variations of these programs statewide. The evaluation will measure the outcomes of the three basic program models and provide an overall assessment of the project.

Methods of evaluation must include pre-surveys, post-surveys, and stakeholder interviews. At this time, $50,000 has been allocated for the evaluation with the possibility of increasing the amount to $75,000, which includes personnel, materials, computer support, travel, lodging, per diem, overhead rates, and other cost recovery for services rendered. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by August, 2008.
