Business Institute Releases Readiness Assessment RFP

The Aging and Disability Business Institute (Business Institute) is seeking a contractor to develop a tiered readiness assessment tool to determine the business capacity and readiness of community-based organizations (CBOs) to develop business relationships with health care entities.  

For CBOs to bridge the gap from their current service models to new integrated care models, they must strengthen their business capacity. To do so, they need a tool to help them assess their capacity, strengths and weaknesses. The readiness assessment tool will serve as the basis for training and technical assistance that will quickly move agencies from basic to intermediate to advanced knowledge and skills, positioning them to successfully implement contracts with health care payers.
The mission of the Business Institute is to build and strengthen partnerships between aging and disability CBOs and health care payers to improve the health and well-being of America's older adults and people with disabilities through improved and increased access to quality services and evidence-based programs. Such access can help older adults and people with disabilities live with dignity and independence in their homes and communities.

Request for Proposal 
Proposals are due October 31.  Contact Mary Kaschak, Deputy Director, Aging and Disability Business Institute, with any questions.
