The SOW (Scope of Work) is a mutually agreed upon document that
specifies the responsibilities of a tribal entity to the government
for a specified amount of funds.
The CHR Program SOL Matrix shall be used to indicate Workload
objectives (percentages) of the contractor, and shall include the
number of full-time/part- time CHRs by job title and I H S/CHR dollar
Workload percentages shall be negotiated by each tribal contractor
and shall indicate total program' workload.
All CHR services shall be community-based.
If transportation is to be provided, it shall be within the local
community to/from an IHS or tribal hospital or clinic for routine,
non-emergency problems, to a patient without other means of transportation
when necessary. A tribally developed transportation policy shall
be in place.
Preparation of the Contract SOW. The major purpose of the "CHR
Program SOW Matrix" is to provide a local CHR Program with the
framework for defining and monitoring its activities. The SOW is
defined in terms of 16 service categories and when the 16 services
are further categorized according to the 14 health areas, a matrix
of 240 different services/areas is formed, into which an activity
may be categorized. (For the purpose of SOW determination, the
activity settings are excluded.)
From the full list of service/area categories, underscore those
that will be done by the CHR Program during the year. Health areas
9 through 90 are currently unassigned. These codes may be added and
defined as the Community Health Representatives Information System
(CHRIS) reporting changes are indicated.
