Tribal Self-Governance Health Care and Social Services Delivery Effectiveness Evaluation Feasibility Study: Draft Work Plan. Task 5. Second Meeting of the Technical Work Group


The second meeting of the TWG will be held around Week 20 of the project, to obtain input from the TWG on selecting the specific sites that will be studied and to provide input on the plan for small group discussions and expert consultations. A packet of information on each of these issues will be sent to the TWG members 10 days prior to the scheduled meeting. This packet will include:

· Information and data on all Tribes that have been identified as meeting the requirements for participation in the feasibility study, including results of initial contacts with key personnel at each Tribe and an indication of their potential interest in participation;

· The Draft Site Visit Protocol, Interview Guides, and Site Visit Plan;

· Draft Small Group Discussion Plan, including identified locations for conducting small group discussions, and topics to be explored through the discussions;

· Draft list of individuals with whom expert consultations will be conducted and the Draft Interview Guide for these consultations.

The Second Meeting of the TWG will be conducted through a telephone conference call, for budgetary and travel burden reasons. We anticipate that it will be scheduled for approximately four hours, with a 20 minute break mid-meeting. A detailed summary of the Second TWG Meeting will be prepared and submitted to the TOM for review and approval. It will then be disseminated to the TWG members and other attendees.
