FY 2016 Scoring and Ranking Criteria along with the Scales (how points are apportioned) are in the document below. A 1-page Points is on the first tab; Scales are on the 2nd tab and other supplemental information are on additional tabs.
One item worthy of note is the Cost Effectiveness scoring found in the 4th tab. Since this is the first attempt to score cost effectiveness, and because there are so many differences among projects, e.g. type of sub-populations served, varying needs of clients and more, only 1 point is being assigned. The Board of Directors agreed with the recommendation of the Scoring and Ranking Committee that this criterion is not developed enough and it should not significantly affect a project's overall scoring and ranking. The intent is to begin incorporating this into our scoring and learning how to do it better, fairly and effectively.
For newer projects, the number of clients participating came from your applications. If this number is not accurate, please inform Bob by sending an email to email@example.com with the correct number and a very short explanation.
