Questions and Answers: 

Question: If I am reading correctly the RFP cover sheet lists the Bidders Conference as April 10 from 2-3 and the Tentative Time Schedule (pg 9) lists it as April 11 at 10:00. 

Answer: The initial date and time of the optional Bidder’s Conference was incorrectly listed on the RFP webpage.  On April 2, 2024, the webpage language was updated to reflect the correct information, which is April 11 at 10am and now aligns with the information in the RFP.  There has been no change to the RFP document.

Question: If we are not SUD, OUD, or MAT providers can we still apply for this and make an impact through opioid educators/ mentors/ case management, warm hand offs, and community resources?

Answer: Eligible applicants are outlined in Section B of the RFP as follows:

Applicants must be Opioid Use Treatment providers or other provider types offering a variety of trauma treatment services to holistically improve the lives of participants in partnership with an Opioid Use Treatment provider.  This Request for Proposal defines “Opioid Use Treatment provider” as any treatment provider offering Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder. SAMHSA overview: https://www.samhsa.gov/medications-substance-use-disorders.

Proposals must also include at least one intervention that is more innovative (not ranked at level 1) either from other rankings or not included in this site, such as Equine Therapy, Art Therapy, whole-body wellness modalities, etc.
