Evaluation Methods of Part C Funds

Client: HIV/AIDS Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA/HAB)

Mission Analytics, as a subcontractor to Walter R. McDonald & Associates, Inc., addresses the lack of historical variation in Objective Review Committee (ORC) scores and subsequent allocations while incorporating a model that addresses the methodological and policy issues. The Division of Community HIV/AIDS Programs (DCHAP) has also outlined specific goals to be addressed in an allocation model. These goals fall into five key areas: (1) linking funding to current indicators of need, (2) ensuring funding addresses legislative priorities, (3) aligning costs per patient based on geographic and health care financing considerations, (4) promoting programmatic results along the HIV Care Continuum, and (5) addressing individual grant actions.
