The Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health, STD/HIV Program issues this Request for Information (RFI) with the intent to determine interested and qualified vendors for providing activities related to the prevention of STD and HIV infections, the provision of services for HIV-infected persons, as well as clinical services and treatment for persons infected with syphilis, chlamydia and/or gonorrhea, and to monitor the STD and HIV epidemics over time.

This document describes the basic components of the required staffing, and requests information regarding a provider's thoughts, interest, and ability to meet the expectations of the LDH. The RFI will be used to identify one or more providers to conduct management, coordination, technical assistance and training, and also data management and analysis activities that support the STD/HIV Program.

LDH anticipates issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) at a later date, which would include more specific expectations and requirements.  The contract awarded as a result of an RFP, if issued, would have a term of three years.  Providers and organizations that are interested in submitting proposals should follow the process outlined in the Request for Information.
