Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Delaware Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC) seeks an established, experienced, motivated, andefficient contractor/organization that possesses demonstrated strong skills in event planning, meeting facilitation,data collection and interpretation, narrative report writing, marketing, and public relations.The Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC) is preparing to begin the strategic planning process for developingand submitting their 2022-2027 Strategic/State Plan. The DDC is funded by the Administration on Intellectualand Developmental Disabilities (AIDD), which operates under the Administration on Community Living (ACL)under the umbrella of the federal Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS). Each state and U.S.Territory has a Developmental Disabilities Council, whose work is guided by the requirements of the federal DDAct. Every five years, Councils must create a new Strategic Plan, and ensure that they gather input from thecommunities that they serve to ensure that needs are being met. The strategic planning process takesapproximately one year, and involves a variety of required activities including planning and facilitating meetingswith leadership from other Councils, planning and facilitating focus groups, creating, marketing and distributingsurveys, planning and facilitating a planning retreat, and coordination/facilitation of public forums.The DDC must submit its final 2022-2027 Strategic/State Plan to AIDD by August 15, 2021. Prior to finalsubmission, the draft plan must go through a final 45 day public comment period. Following that, the Councilmust review public comment and vote what changes, if any, will be made to the Plan based on public feedback.It is imperative that the DDC meets the deadline for submission of the Strategic Plan set by AIDD; therefore,ample time should be allowed for the process to take place properly. The DDC meets in September, November,January, March, May, and July on the third Wednesday of the month. Full Council approval is required in orderto move forward with official business, such as approving the final Strategic Plan. Due to Freedom of InformationAct (FOIA) regulations concerning quorum, Council is not always able to conduct business during their scheduledmeeting dates. This further emphasizes the need to pad the timeline to ensure that staff has sufficient time toinput data into the ACL reporting system so the 2022-2027 Strategic/State Plan will be submitted by August 15,2021.
