Specifications include, but are not limited to:REQUIREMENTS:General Scope of Work: The Department of Corrections recognizes the need to address the community health and recovery challenges of our inmate population. Given the prevalence of substance use disorders among RIDOC inmates and the likelihood of relapse driven recidivism, the Department believes a coordinated community health, recovery focused response is a high priority. For some time the RIDOC has strongly emphasized the importance of evidence-based practices (EBP). The Department identified seven full time employees to engage in training to become assessors utilizing the Corrections Program Checklist (CPC). The CPC is a tool developed by the University of Cincinnati (UC) for assessing correctional intervention programs to determine the extent to which correctional programs adhere to evidence-based practices.1 As part of the training these trainees, under the supervision of the Associate Director of the University of Cincinnati Center for Criminal Justice Research, assessed the residential treatment program located at Medium Security. The results of this assessment were provided to the vendor with an expectation that recommendations for change would be implemented. Information on the CPC is included as Addendum I to assist bidders in understanding this concept and its role in helping RIDOC move its contractors towards the main goal of reduction in recidivism. The CPC is divided into two basic areas; Content and capacity; these two areas cover a total of five domains. The capacity area is designed to measure the capability of the program to deliver evidence-based interventions and services to offenders.2 There are three domains within the capacity area including: Leadership and Development; Staff; and Quality Assurance. The content area focuses on how well the program meets the principles of effective intervention.3 The following are some of the indicators for each domain.
