Proposers must meet the following minimum requirement(s):
- Minimum of five (5) years of experience leading research projects, including conducting survey data collection, data cleaning and analysis, and carrying out data reporting processes.
Applicants that do not meet the minimum requirement(s) above will not pass the first level of review (see Section VIII. Selection Process and Review Criteria).
First 5 LA is seeking proposals from individuals or organizations with the qualifications necessary to implement the annual reporting process and develop dissemination products that will support data use. The purpose of the annual reporting process is to comply with Proposition 10 requirements and to enable First 5 LA to hold itself accountable to its mission and vision for LA County children and families. The goals of the project are to:
- Ensure First 5 LA maintains compliance with Proposition 10 reporting requirements through timely submission of required reporting to First 5 California.
- Improve access and sharing of data related to First 5 LA’s investments, reach, and impact with staff and local stakeholders by generating a local data brief.
The annual report (AR) work will provide First 5 LA with an overview of its contribution to improving conditions for young children and their families in L.A. County. First 5 LA’s annual reporting includes data related to populations served, fiscal revenues and expenditures, completed evaluations, and qualitative success stories. The data reported through the AR process will also help First 5 LA examine the demographics of those served by its investments and identify any disparities to inform First 5 LA’s future investments. Specifically, the dissemination of data disaggregated by race/ethnicity and geography will facilitate access by First 5 LA staff, grantees, and partners. Understanding the possible disparities elevated in First 5 LA’s investments can also serve to inform First 5 LA’s investment policies and practices.
