Colorado DV/SA Prevention Campaign – Campaign Line RFP
As you may already know, a group of stakeholders are developing a statewide DV/SA prevention campaign for Colorado. Colorado’s Campaign will implement a successful social marketing campaign that eradicates social acceptance of domestic and sexual violence to effectively prevent future violence. The mission is to prevent domestic and sexual violence by changing how the community views and behaves toward the issues of domestic and sexual violence. Unlike other initiatives that put the burden for change on survivors, Colorado’s Campaign puts the responsibility on those who abuse to end the violence. A brief Campaign overview is attached.
Colorado’s Campaign includes a statewide Campaign information line as part of its call to action. The Campaign steering committee has determined that the best way to create a statewide Campaign line in Colorado is to support the expansion of an existing crisis and/or information line currently run by a community based domestic violence and/or sexual assault (DV/SA) advocacy and services organization.
To that end, we are putting out this RFP to identify the organization with which the Campaign will work to bring this line to fruition. The Campaign and Campaign funding will support the equipment, staffing and staff training needs of this line, as well as the policy and procedure development and other associated needs. The initial contract for the Campaign line will be from August 15, 2016 – December 31, 2018.
The Campaign intends to continue for multiple years and will consider a subsequent contract award based upon performance and availability of funds. The award amount for this initial RFP will not exceed $380,000 for the hiring and training of staff in 2016 and Campaign line implementation from January 2017 through December 2018.
To qualify, you must:
- Be a victim service organization in Colorado who can demonstrate robust advocacy and services for BOTH survivors of domestic and sexual violence,
- Have an existing DV/SA crisis and/or information line that your program currently manages, and
- Be a non-profit in good standing with the State of Colorado.
We invite all qualified organizations to review the attached RFP and submit a proposal by Friday, June 3, 2016 at 11:59 p.m.
