SCOPE OF WORK:
The Contractor shall:
This funding is intended to establish, expand, train, and sustain the public health workforce within Gila County
to support COVID-19 prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery initiatives. The funding award to Gila
County is expected to be used to recruit, hire, and/or train personnel to address projected jurisdictional COVID-
19 response needs over the performance period, including hiring personnel to build capacity to address public
health priorities deriving from COVID-19.
1. Project Oversight
a. Using a variety of mechanisms to expand the public health workforce, including,
but not limited to:
i. Potentially using the General Services Administration (GSA) COVID-
19 Related Support Services (CRSS) contract mechanism available at
Acquisition Gateway to obtain contract staff or services;
ii. Forming partnerships with academic institutions, creating student
internship or fellowship opportunities, and building graduation-to-
workforce pipelines;
iii. Establishing partnerships with schools of public health, technical and
administrative schools, and social services and social science
programs; and
iv. Using temporary staffing or employment agencies.
b. Using recent gap assessments to inform work plan activities and hiring goals. If a
gap assessment is not readily available, funds can be used to conduct this activity.
c. Using funds to conduct a workforce analysis to determine whether health
departments were organized to maximum benefit for the COVID-19 response and
how they may want to be reconstituted to prepare for future emergencies.
d. Addressing community recovery and resilience needs to respond effectively to
the COVID-19 pandemic and other biologic threats, including vaccine-related
education.
e. Training and education for new and existing staff on topics such as incident
management training, especially from a public health perspective and integration
with emergency management; health equity issues and working with
underserved populations; cultural competency; disease investigations;
informatics or data management; or other needs identified by the jurisdiction.
i. This can also include training on incident management or emergency
management roles for existing staff in other program areas who may be
called upon to support the response.
f. Developing, training, and equipping response-ready “strike force” teams capable
of deploying rapidly to meet emergent needs, including through the Emergency
Management Assistance Compact.
g. Ensuring a focus on diversity, health equity, and inclusion by delineating goals for
hiring and training a diverse workforce across all levels who are representative of,
and have language competence for the local communities they serve. CDC’s
Social Vulnerability Index should be used to inform jurisdictional activities,
strategies, and hiring.
