Request for Proposals: Communications and Videographer Consultant for Infection Prevention and Control Topics

Apr 01, 2021 | Christina Baum

NACCHO is the voice of the nearly 3,000 LHDs across the country. NACCHO provides resources to help LHD leaders develop public health policies and programs to ensure that communities have access to the vital programs and services people need to keep them protected from disease and disaster. Additionally, NACCHO advocates on behalf of LHDs with federal policymakers for adequate resources, appropriate public health legislation, and sensible policies to address the myriad of challenges facing communities.

NACCHO, with support from the Division of Healthcare Quality and Promotion within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is working to understand and build LHD capacity in IPC. LHDs are called upon to support IPC in various settings including traditional healthcare settings such as long-term care facilities, as well as congregate living settings such as correctional and adult living facilities. LHDs often make recommendations for improving infection prevention after an outbreak occurs and, increasingly, seek out opportunities to work with facilities to proactively identify gaps in IPC practices to prevent outbreaks from occurring. LHDs support these facilities in their jurisdiction by providing resources, guidance, and education; conducting in-person or virtual IPC assessments; and expanding collaboration and coordination between LHDs, facilities, and community infection prevention partners. NACCHO is advancing this work through two initiatives: The Building Local Operational Capacity for COVID-19 (BLOC COVID-19) Demonstration Site Project and Project Firstline. Through the BLOC COVID-19 project, NACCHO has awarded 25 LHDs to enhance local capacity to prevent and respond to COVID-19. Project Firstline is an infection control collaborative designed to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases in U.S. healthcare settings and NACCHO is a partner in the initiative. Project Firstline is committed to providing the public health workforce and frontline healthcare workers with the infection control training they need to protect the nation from infectious disease threats. The consultant will help to showcase the experiences and lessons learned of LHDs engaging in IPC work through interviews and development of a video series.

NACCHO will issue one award in the form of an hourly goods and services contract up to $25,000 to complete the required activities.
