How We Fund
OSDH develops and funds projects in one of two ways: inter-agency agreement contracts or the formal solicitation and bid process through the use of Requests For Proposals (RFP). The RFP process is not limited to state agencies; it is an open bidding process for all qualified organizations as described in the solicitation packet.
Applications must be submitted to the respective state for preliminary approval; upon review, states may submit select proposals for CMS approval. Effective January 1, 2012, CMS requires prior CMS approval for any new project, grantee, or use of federally imposed CMP funds. [See CMS SC 12-13-NH, December 16, 2011] State requests for approval submitted to CMS use the most current CMS Region form. CMS Region VI application form is available online and is posted as part of the solicitation packet for the open bidding time frame of the Oklahoma solicitation process.
The application includes the following components:
Grant Cycle & Information Sessions
Approximately once a year the Program will release a request for proposals (RFP) for entities to provide either specified services or to develop innovative approaches to improve quality of care in nursing homes. State procurement procedures require a solicitation and contract process. During the RFP cycle, potential applicants may access the bid packet online: https://www.ok.gov/health/Organization/Procurement/Bid_Opportunities/index.html.
During the open bid cycle all questions must be addressed to the purchasing agent listed in the bid packet. The CMP Program cannot directly address any questions about potential programming during this cycle. This is a simplified version of the process:
