Questions for Division:
1. Process of RFP?
Close to being completed, still waiting in CDC to indicate a cost extension or a new cycle. The RFP will go out to everyone regardless. Noted that the cost extension speaks to funding from CDC to State, not State to sites.
2. It is a 1 year cycle or a normal cycle?
Should take the normal 3 year cycle.
No report given
Any suggestions or changes to the self-assessment form should be forwarded to the membership committee. A new evaluation is being looked at for assessing CPG as a whole.
