Section 0500 Scope of Work SOLICITATION NO. RFP 4400 BYS3004 DESCRIPTION: QUALITY OF LIFE STUDY FOR AUSTINITES WITH DISABILITIES 1.0 Introduction Austin is a beacon of sustainability, social equity, and economic opportunity; where diversity and creativity are celebrated; where community needs and values are recognized; where leadership comes from its community members and where the necessities of life are affordable and accessible to all (Imagine Austin Vision). Because Austin’s greatest asset is its people: we are committed to improving the quality of life of Austin’s whole community. In keeping with the vision of Imagine Austin and the Strategic Outcomes of Austin Strategic Direction 2023, Austin is committed to a City that works for every Austinite, at every stage of life, regardless of their physical and/or intellectual ability. According to the 2017 US Census Bureau, Austin is home to more than 100,000 people with disabilities. Despite the significant size of this population, the City of Austin has not administered an official city-wide data collection nor survey effort to better understand the experiences of the Disabled community. These experiences include their ability to navigate and access healthcare, housing, employment, public services and transportation systems. To improve the experiences for people with disabilities, it is critical for Austin to conduct a data-driven study that evaluates the quality of life Austin’s disabled community. The results of this study will help identify challenges, determine gaps, align resources and guide policy decisions aimed toward inclusivity, equity, and innovative measures that build trust with Austin’s Disabled community. Purpose 2.1 The City of Austin (COA) seeks a qualified contractor and/or team of contractors to conduct a Quality of Life Study for Austinites with disabilities that supports the following goals: Quantifies the demographics of Austin’s disabled population with specific regard to complexity of physical and intellectual abilities and their intersection with age, race, gender, and socio-economic status. Outlines strategies for connecting with populations that have historically been difficult to reach within the broader disabled community; Identifies the factors that most impact the quality of life of members of the disabled community; Reports the current state of those factors in comparison to the population as a whole; Recommends metrics for measuring and reporting progress toward equity throughout the community; Is useful to policymakers now and in the future in making decisions on resource allocation, regulations, business practices, service delivery and City policies. 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.6 2.7 2.0 3.0 …
