OKFutures will make systems-level recommendations to improve the overall quality of Oklahoma's early childhood system. OPSR will address challenges and seek consultation with external experts. And OPSR will review the needs assessment and strategic plan to develop an evaluation of system and program quality and effectiveness as well as successful outcomes for children and their families.
OPSR is pleased to work with Third Sector Intelligence (3SI) to build upon existing efforts to develop an Oklahoma Early Childhood Integrated Data System (ECIDS). Below are details of the original request for proposal. More information on the progress we're making is coming soon!
OPSR sought technical assistance to: 1) enable OPSR to conduct a thorough assessment of existing public and private early childhood programs to determine their effectiveness and to maximize the efficient use of current state funds; 2) equip state and community based program administrators, policymakers, public and private funders, the executive and legislative branches of state government, and community leaders to increase an understanding of how early childhood resources are being used and are benefiting young children and their families; 3) identify gaps and inequities; and 4) inform policy and funding decisions that increase equitable outcomes for young children. Bids were due Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 5 p.m. CST.
