Specifications include, but are not limited to:Since 1991, Texas has participated in a cooperative agreement with CDC to administer the YRBS. In 2001, the DSHS began collecting the data using a contractor.The goal of this project is to collect uniform, generalizable, comparable prevalence data on the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among Texas public and charter high school students. The survey is also conducted on the national level in 47 states and the District of Columbia, five territories, two tribal governments, and over 20 large urban school districts.2.1.1. Data collection occurs on the odd years (e.g., 2017) in the spring, with preparatory work occurring in the later months of the even years (e.g., 2016);2.1.2. In addition to the national and local YRBSs, coordination is required with two (2) other youth surveys: Texas Youth Tobacco Survey (Texas YTS) and National Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS), originally in the even years, but now in the odd years.2.1.3. Houston and Fort Worth also conduct local school district YRBSs, and coordination is required with these localities. If a school is selected for more than one (1) survey, the DSHS contractor is required to collaborate with these entities to reduce school burden as much as possible. Schools will be approached only once as part of this coordinating effort.2.1.4. Schools are sampled without replacement; therefore, it is essential to get as many school districts and schools as possible to agree to participate and to actually participate in the survey. Schools may not be approached prior to being cleared at the school district level.2.1.5. By the end of May 2017, the DSHS contractor must complete at least 4000 total interviews of public and charter high school students for the Texas YRBS. Historically, the Texas YRBS completes around 4000 interviews for each year the survey is conducted.2.2. Project ScheduleThe DSHS Contractors tasks for this RFP for YRBS data collection will overlap one another. The DSHS contractor must meet the following milestone goals no later than the completion dates.
