PURPOSE. This is a Request for Competitive Sealed Proposals (RFP) under Section 125.071 of the Ohio Revised Code
(ORC) and Section 123:5-1-08 of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC). The Department of Administrative Services (DAS),
Office of Procurement Services, on behalf of the Ohio Department of Health or ODH (the Agency), is soliciting competitive
sealed proposals (Proposals) for Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Prevention Program (SADVPP) and this RFP is the
result of that request. If a suitable offer is made in response to this RFP, the State of Ohio (State), through DAS, may enter
into a contract (the Contract) to have the selected Offeror (the Contractor) perform all or part of the Project (the Work). This
RFP provides details on what is required to submit a Proposal for the Work, how the State will evaluate the Proposals, and
what will be required of the Contractor in performing the Work.
This RFP also gives the estimated dates for the various events in the submission process, selection process, and performance
of the Work. While these dates are subject to change, prospective Offerors must be prepared to meet them as they currently
Once awarded, the term of the Contract will be from the award date through 12/31/20. The State may solely renew this
Contract at the discretion of DAS for a period of one month. Any further renewals will be by mutual agreement between the
Contractor and DAS for any number of times and for any period of time. The cumulative time of all mutual renewals may not
exceed twelve (12) months and are subject to and contingent upon the discretionary decision of the Ohio General Assembly to
appropriate funds for this Contract in each new biennium. DAS may renew all or part of this Contract subject to the
satisfactory performance of the Contractor and the needs of the Agency.
Any failure to meet a deadline in the submission or evaluation phases and any objection to the dates for performance of the
Project may result in DAS refusing to consider the Proposal of the Offeror.
The ODH receives and distributes federal funds to address rape crisis in Ohio through the US Department of Justice’s Sexual
Assault Services Program (SASP). SASP was created by the Violence Against Women and Department of Justice
Reauthorization Act of 2005 (VAWA 2005), 42 U.S.C. §14043g, and is the first federal funding stream solely dedicated to the
provision of direct intervention and related assistance for victims of sexual assault. For this opportunity, funding comes from
both SASP and the Public Health and Health Services Block Grant of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Overall, the purpose of SASP is to provide intervention, advocacy, accompaniment (e.g., accompanying victims to court,
medical facilities, police departments, etc.), support services, and related assistance for adult, youth, and child victims of
sexual assault, family and household members of victims, and those collaterally affected by the sexual assault. Funds
provided through the SASP Formula Grant Program are designed to supplement other funding sources directed at addressing
sexual assault on the state level.
Through needs assessment, Ohio has identified that survivors of sexual assault from culturally specific communities confront
unique and additional challenges, such as linguistic and cultural barriers, when seeking assistance. In order to provide the
most appropriate services to such victims, ODH has been using SASP funds to support outreach and services specific to
survivors of sexual assault from one or more of the following racial and ethnic communities: Asian American and/or Asian,
African American and/or African/Black, and/or Latino/Hispanic/Spanish Speaking.
African Americans represent the largest demographic of communities identified through a needs assessment as under-utilizing
rape crisis services in Ohio, yet they have been the community receiving the least outreach and services through previous
years of SASP funding. For this contract, ODH seeks the development of a pilot outreach and service provision method based
on emerging local and national models showing promise for reaching previously unserved and/or underserved African
American survivors of sexual violence.

OBJECTIVES. DAS, on behalf of ODH, has the following objectives that it wants this Work to fulfill, and it will be the
Contractor’s obligation to ensure that the personnel the Contractor provides are qualified to perform their portions of the Work.
The project objective is to create and pilot a model strategy for supporting survivors of sexual violence, with a focus on
reaching African American survivors through development of a community-based strategy. Based on emerging local and
national models showing promise, the strategy should be supportive of survivors separate from any intent to engage with the
criminal justice system. Implementation must be in locations with strong representation of African American residents and
implementation is required in at least two different cities in Ohio.
Content areas not allowable include any activities that jeopardize victim safety, deter or prevent physical or emotional healing
for victims, or allow offenders to escape responsibility for their actions. More detailed information on activities that compromise
victim safety and recovery and undermine offender accountability will be provided upon request.
The activities listed below are out of the program scope, and they will not be supported by this program’s funding:
1. Research projects (This does not include program assessments conducted only for internal improvement purposes.
See “Research and Protection of Human Subjects” in the OVW Solicitation Companion Guide).
2. Activities focused on prevention efforts and public education (e.g., bystander intervention, social norms campaigns,
presentations on healthy relationships, etc.).
3. Criminal justice-related projects, including law enforcement, prosecution, courts, and forensic interviews.
4. Sexual Assault Forensic Medical Examiner programs.
5. Sexual Assault Response Team coordination.
6. Providing training to allied professionals and the community (e.g., law enforcement, child protection services,
prosecution, other community-based organizations, etc.).
7. Domestic violence services unrelated to sexual violence.
