Task Order 10: New model for assessing TB surveillance and action performance and cost

Task Order 10 is an evaluation of TB surveillance and the assessment of activities using a new conceptual framework that will lead to the accurate and successful collection of program data. It will also involve an assessment of program cost to refine and implement a standard, user-friendly tool that can be used to target and enhance the efficiency of program interventions.


ALA Chicago in collaboration with ALA Tallahassee and Florida Department of Health Bureau of TB and Refugee Health, University of North Texas Health Science Center

Study Objectives

  1. Develop a new TB surveillance and action evaluation strategy (including tools) applicable for all state and local TB programs.
  2. Develop and implement monitoring and evaluation (M&E) model and tool set that measure both the performance and cost
  3. Design interventions targeted for improved performance and cost efficiency.

Study Design

TO10 activities are divided into three phases: operational research, formative evaluation, and tool development. During Phase I, contractors produce an extensive library cataloging indicators from federal, state and county-level programs and develop standard programmatic and financial assumptions based upon comprehensive literature reviews. During Phase II, the Florida Department of Health will conduct focus groups with TB public health workers from county and state levels to review existing indicators and solicit feedback related to the utility, feasibility, propriety, accuracy, and flexibility of the tools. At the same time, University of North Texas Health Science Center will perform studies to validate the personnel and time-related assumptions. The contractors will also gather and analyze evaluation data at the state, district, and county levels to validate the performance and cost evaluation at all levels of public health surveillance and action. During Phase III, contractors will use the findings from Phases I and II of the project to develop tools and to ensure that the tools are meaningful, valid and fully functional for each programmatic level.

Study Progress

Study is complete.
