Appendix C: Statement of Work/Budget

Florida Adult Tobacco Survey
Phone Scope of Work

 

Background: RTI Is conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the Florida Department of Health Bureau of Tobacco-Free Florida. To inform the evaluation, RTI has devised the Florida Tobacco Surveillance System to capture timely public health surveillance data on tobacco outcome indicators and related socioecological influences across multiple Florida populations.

 

Objective: RTI requires the services of an outside organization with demonstrated experience conducting telephone surveys with computer assisted telephone Interviewing (CATI) methodology to execute the Florida Adult Tobacco Survey. The subcontractor will be responsible for all aspects of data collection, as outlined below.

 

Specific Tasks: The specific tasks expected of the subcontractor include the following:

 

  1. Project Management and Set Up. The subcontractor will manage and administer survey execution. RTI will design the instrument to be completed using computer assisted telephone interviewing (CAT!) methodology only.
     
    The subcontractor will work with RTI to program and pre-test the CATI front-end, interview, and back-end scripts based on the final specifications provided from RTI. All outbound calls to sample members must display a Florida area code. Additionally, the subcontractor is responsible for setting-up a dedicated toll-free line with capacity to handle in-bound calls.
     
  2. Interviewer Training, Supervision, and Monitoring. The subcontractor will recruit, train, and supervise interviewing staff. RTI will provide project-specific training materials. During data collection, the subcontractor will provide interviewer supervision and monitoring. The general guideline is 15% of interviewing hours for supervision and 10% of interviewing hours for monitoring.
     
  3. Data Collection. The subcontractor will conduct quarterly data collection (~ 10-12 weeks) to obtain 1,000 completed telephone surveys per quarter (800 cell phone completes, 200 landline completes; RTI will provide the sample). Specifications of data collection are outlined in Attachment 1.
     
  4. Incentives. The subcontractor will provide an incentive file every two weeks with the names and addresses of survey participants eligible to receive an incentive check. RTI will be responsible for the cost and processing of the incentives.
     
  5. Data Collection Tracking. The subcontractor will provide RTI with weekly production reports that include the disposition of all sampled cases and other key data collection results.
     
  6. Data Files. During the first quarter of data collection, the subcontractor will provide a preliminary data set after first 100 or so interviews completed, for quality checking purposes. At the end of each quarter, within 10 business days of die completion of data collection, the subcontractor will deliver a final cleaned data file in SPSS, SAS, or Stata. The data file will include all CATI data, including preloaded sample data, front end screening data, and final sample dispositions. A codebook with all variable and value labels for all data elements must be included with the final data file. The subcontractor will also include a record of call data file at the end of each quarter.
