External Validator to Support the Evaluation of the King County Pay for Success Outpatient Behavioral Health Treatment on Demand Initiative

The King County Pay for Success Outpatient Behavioral Health Treatment on Demand Initiative aims to improve timely access to outpatient behavioral health care in the publicly-funded mental health and substance abuse treatment system in King County. King County will conduct the evaluation of Treatment on Demand internally.

To support the delivery of a rigorous evaluation, the County seeks an independent, external validator to ensure that:

  • The evaluation plan developed by the internal evaluator includes appropriate methodology to assess the Treatment on Demand initiative;
  • The internal evaluation is adhering to the evaluation plan; and
  • The results of the Treatment on Demand evaluation are reported in an unbiased way.

The external validation is expected to start in August 2017 and end in March 2019. The amount of effort expended by the external validator is not to exceed $50,000.
