Evaluation Report

The final evaluation report will be due on August 28, 2020.

The final evaluation report should be cumulative; it should cover evaluation activities and findings during the entire project period, or period of performance, of the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).

The final evaluation report should include the following:

  • Brief description of the key interventions supported through the NOFO
  • Description of the evaluation findings
  • Progress on achieving the NOFO logic model outcomes
  • Data demonstrating the implications and the impact of the program’s achievements
  • Interventions and effects of program interventions on reducing tobacco-related disparities
  • Summary of lessons learned

OSH will provide more specific guidance on the final NOFO evaluation report requirements in late 2019.

No, you do not need to submit an evaluation report for the current budget period.

Success Story

The due date stated in the Supplement Guidance is incorrect. The success story is due on July 31, 2019. This requirement from the current budget period was re-emphasized in the Supplement Guidance and includes that each awardee submit a draft copy of the success story to their project officer 60 days before it is due, i.e., May 31, 2019.

Awardees should submit both draft and final versions of their success story to their project officer.

No, awardees are not required to submit a success story for the 9 month supplement.

Budget

Funding amounts are listed in a table that was included in the Supplement Guidance. The supplement budget is for a 9 month period; the funding amounts listed are based on 75% of the current year’s award amount.

Awardees may use the funds for other quitline expenses. Although not required, it is recommended that an awardee note in their application that their core DP15-1509 budget includes travel to NCTOH. This notation provided clarity to the reviewer that this requirement has been addressed.

The indirect cost can be added to the budget, but the indirect cost budget amount will not be approved until the Indirect Cost Rate Agreement is received and approved.

Other

No, awardees are not required to do so, but are strongly encouraged to lay the groundwork for screening these populations in the future.
