Program Evaluation of the OAP Service Navigation Program

Title: Program Evaluation of the OAP Service Navigation Program

Date of issue: November 20, 2020

Project Overview and Background
Autism Ontario (formerly Autism Society Ontario) is a charitable organization founded in 1973, and the province’s leading source of information and referral on autism and one of the largest collective voices representing the autism community. The provincial Ontario Autism Program (OAP), administered by Ontario’s Ministry of Children Community and Social Services (MCCSS), transitioned to a direct funding model with the introduction of Childhood Budgets (CB), followed by Interim One Time Funding (IOT) in 2019. To support eligible families in accessing and using their funding, the MCCSS has contracted Autism Ontario to deliver the Service Navigation Program. We are seeking a third-party evaluator to design and implement a year end program evaluation of the Service Navigation Program and provide suggestions for evaluation components required for quarterly reporting.
