The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is seeking proposals from organizations or individuals with experience in determining measureable evaluation outcomes for systems that serve older adults and persons with disabilities. ARC seeks recommendations on measurements and data sources to assess the impact of Older Americans Act programs in the Atlanta region. Historically, ARC has collected data on the number of persons served and quantity of services delivered.  The need for measurements and data sources to assess the impact of Older Americans Act programs is a necessity to demonstrate value in an accountable climate for resources.  ARC is seeking the best options to reach this goal and measured impacts may include health outcomes, reduced isolation or other outcomes as determined through this project’s results.
ARC is seeking proposals from entities that have experience in the following areas: 1)  researching  non-Medicaid home and community based long term care services and supports systems; 2) facilitating large and small groups; 3) understanding and utilizing the Collective Impact model  4) identifying emerging trends in evaluation in social sectors; and 4) working with elected officials.
