Administrative and Fiscal Services: Tasks and responsibilities such as preparation and management of operational
budget; personnel management; program planning and evaluation; supervision and evaluation of staff;
labor/management relations; public relations; ensuring compliance with Affirmative Action requirements; development,
implementation, and monitoring of policies/practices for information and technology, space, staff/offender health,
safety and security.
Alternative to Revocation (ATR) is a written and signed agreement between DOC and the offender.
Cognitive Interventions: A program which teaches specific strategies or techniques to enable offenders to (1)
identify for themselves the specific thoughts that support their criminal behavior (self-observation); (2) see and
appreciate the pattern and consequences of their thinking; (3) utilize reasoning and problem solving, self-talk, social
interaction skills as a means of controlling and changing their thinking; (4) recognize that they have choices and can
make a conscious decision to change or not to change. The Department stresses programming that combines two
types of cognitive interventions: cognitive restructuring (changing the thinking patterns, attitudes, and beliefs that lead
persons to offend) and cognitive skills training (teaching reasoning, problem solving, modeling, role-playing and social
skills).
Correctional Client includes city, county, state or federal clients served in a correctional setting. The DOC will make
sole determination of who meets these criteria.
Criminogenic Risk Factors: Those features that research has demonstrated are related to criminal behavior. At
least two types are recognized. Static risk factors are offender characteristics that cannot change but are predictive of
an offender’s propensity for future criminal activity, for example, the offender’s age at the time of first offense.
Dynamic risk factors are offender characteristics that may be altered by effective intervention. Examples of dynamic
risk factors are substance abuse; identification with criminal companions; low tolerance for frustration; impulsivity;
conflicts with authority; poor use of leisure time; conning and manipulation; thrill seeking; egocentrism; blaming others;
dissatisfaction with conventional, mainstream activities; poor skills in identifying alternative choices; etc.

Culturally Diverse Programming: Programming which accommodates the learning styles of African American,
Hispanic, American Indian, Caucasian and other ethnic backgrounds. This is accomplished through diverse staff and
program materials.
Gender Specific: Programming designed specifically to address male and female offenders’ needs and learning
styles.
Guided Self-Discovery: This methodology proposes that to take a cognitive approach and then try to argue
offenders out of their habits of thinking is ineffective and even counterproductive. Despite the fact that cognitive
interventions involve learning new beliefs and behaviors, these are not taught through lectures or preaching. In guided
discovery, questioning and exploration are used to help participants discover what they think, guide them to pinpoint
the source of their problems, assist them in seeing new perspectives, and help them find their own solutions to their
problems. When using guided discovery, facilitators model a process that offenders can use, on their own, to explore,
evaluate and challenge their beliefs and thoughts rather than continually relying upon facilitators to pinpoint the
sources of their problems and find solutions for them. Asking questions also helps the facilitator keep track of a
participant’s progress in understanding cognitive concepts and making cognitive changes.
The guided discovery approach is also used to maximize participant involvement in the group sessions. When
responding to questions, the participant is doing most of the work rather than being a passive recipient listening to
statements from the facilitator. Guiding participants to pinpoint the source of their problems and find their own
solutions also minimizes the possibility of the participant believing that the facilitator is attempting to impose his or her
own ideas on the participant. Participants often adopt new perspectives more readily when they are allowed to form
their own conclusions than when they are persuaded to adopt the facilitator’s conclusions.
The facilitator’s role is to work with participants to help them recognize their cognitions and other risk factors that
cause problems for them; to test the validity of the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions that prove important; and to
make changes in both cognition and behaviors. By actively collaborating with the offender, facilitators minimize the
resistance and opposition that is often elicited by taking an authoritarian role, yet they still remain in a position to
structure each session and the overall course of the program in a way that is as efficient and effective as possible.
This methodology tends to increase feelings of self-efficacy and empowerment in participants by encouraging them to
adopt an internal focus of evaluation.
Impulse Control: This means programming that will address behavior modification as it concerns the inability to
resist impulses that result in a harmful action to one's self or others.
Program Evaluation: The identification of quantifiable behavioral indicators of response to the planned intervention
used to determine program efficacy.
Program Participant or Participant: This refers to the offender referred by the DCC and receiving services through
the program is defined as a program participant.
Program Statement: The written statement of a program’s philosophy and model of treatment; the research basis for
selection of the treatment model; the problem and the population to be served; the goals, objectives, and activities to
be employed to achieve the desired outcomes; and the plan for determining the efficacy of the services provided.
Punishers: Involves the application of a stimulus to decrease behavior.
Reactive or Affective Aggression: Aggression that is caused by unpleasant affects (anxiety, anger, frustration, etc)
triggered by a situational stimulus. Aggressor perceives that victim provoked violence. Often violence is impulsive with
very little planning by aggressor. Harm to victim is the primary goal.
Reinforcers: Involves the application of a stimulus to increase behavior.
Responsivity: Refers to the learning style and characteristics of the offender which can effect their engagement in
treatment.

Screening: The process which identifies whether an offender has an AODA problem (in this case) and if so, a
recommendation for the most appropriate type of treatment. A screening is a “first cut” done quickly, without the
detailed, in-depth, current information that would be gathered for an assessment. A screening should not be confused
with an assessment, which is a lengthier, much more definitive process.
Secular Programming: A program that is free of religious components (Exhibit 1).
Social Skills Training (SST): Social skills training (SST) is a form of behavior therapy used by therapists and trainers
to help persons who have difficulties relating to other people. A major goal of SST is teaching persons who may have
emotional problems about the verbal as well as nonverbal behaviors involved in social interactions. There are people
who have never been taught such interpersonal skills as making "small talk" in social settings, or the importance of
good eye contact during a conversation. In addition, many people have not learned to "read" the many subtle cues
contained in social interactions, such as how to tell when someone wants to change the topic of conversation or shift
to another activity. SST helps people learn to interpret these and other social signals, so that they can determine how
to act appropriately in the company of other people in a variety of different situations. SST proceeds on the assumption
that when people improve their social skills or change selected behaviors, they will raise their self-esteem and
increase the likelihood that others will respond favorably to them. People learn to change their social behavior patterns
by practicing selected behaviors in individual or group therapy sessions. Another goal of SST is improving a person's
ability to function in everyday social situations.
Special Populations: Offenders that may present particular characteristics such as the following – cognitively
challenged (low functioning), non-English speaking, learning challenged, mentally ill or physically challenged
(hearing/visual/mobility impaired).
Staffings: Verbal communication and information shared by DOC staff and contractor about a specific offender which
usually involves a face-to-face meeting, but may take place over the telephone. The offender may or may not be
present at the meeting or time of telephone call.

INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE
1.1
PURPOSE OF THIS REQUEST FOR BID
The Department of Corrections, hereinafter referred to as the "DOC", through its Purchasing Services
Section, hereinafter referred to as "Purchasing," on behalf of the Division of Community Corrections
hereinafter referred to as "DCC", requests bids for the purchase of secular, non-residential Anger
Management with Impulse Control Group Services in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. The program must provide
services to offenders convicted in adult court and under the supervision of the Wisconsin Department of
Corrections (DOC) with specified program needs.
Other State agencies may use the resulting contract, if agreeable to both the DOC and the vendor, to obtain
the benefits of volume purchases and/or reduction in administrative expenses.
Risk reduction strategies are designed to reduce an offender’s propensity to re-offend by helping the
offender change their criminal behavior patterns. The DCC is compelled to evaluate these programs to
support the financial resources spent on rehabilitation programs which are under increasing scrutiny by
legislators, policy makers and the public. Anecdotal evidence of program effectiveness is no longer
satisfactory. Even though there is strong widespread public support for offender rehabilitation programs,
the public and policy makers want clear and definitive answers to the questions, “Does it Work?” and “Is it
cost effective?” To that end, the contractor awarded this bid will provide the DCC with documentation to
answer these questions in coordination with details noted in section 4.8.4.4 Program Evaluation of this
bid.
1.1.1 PROGRAM SCOPE
The DCC supervises individuals who have a history of criminal and/or physically/verbally abusive behavior.
The National Institution of Correction’s curriculum Offender Risk Reduction: Evidence Based Practice was
used as a reference in the development of these Anger Management Program Standards. Several factors
are noted to be essential to program success as measured by the difference in recidivism between
treatment and control groups (see also Exhibit 6).
1.1.2 PROGRAM GOALS
Consistent with these characteristics, the goals of the Anger Management with Impulse Control
intervention / treatment program are:
o To provide group intervention to assist offenders in increasing their ability to deal with anger
appropriately in order to reduce the number of repeated contacts with the criminal justice system
for this reason.
o To provide a community based alternative to the incarceration of offenders who are in need of
Anger Management and Impulse Control intervention services.
o To provide group counseling for offenders that focuses on offender responsibility for violent
behavior, and development of skills and techniques for the prevention of violence
o To provide timely, close communication with DCC staff on participation, progress and problems.
o Provide participants with educational information regarding Anger Management and Impulse
Control.
1.1.3 TARGET POPULATION
The program would serve male and female offenders referred by the Department of Corrections who have
a documented pattern of verbal or physical aggression that is considered to be reactive rather than
instrumental. Referrals may include those defined in special populations. Priority shall be given to
offenders with highest risk to re-offend based upon a DOC-502 or Northpointe Compass classification.
1.2
CONTRACT TERM
The contract term will be for one (1) year that will start upon receipt of formal contract and/or State of
Wisconsin purchase order by the awarded bidder. The Calendar of Events (Section 2.3) provides the
approximate contract start date.

initial contract term is contingent upon the performance of the contractor during the contract period and
upon availability of funds. These are not automatic renewals. Contracts will be reviewed by the DOC
before a decision is made. Any renewal(s) must be authorized by mutual written agreement of the vendor
and the state.

or termination of contract.
1.4.3
If at any time the Contractor performance threatens the health and/or safety of the DOC, the DOC
has the right to cancel and terminate the Contract without notice.
1.4.4
Failure to maintain the required Certificates of Insurance, Permits and Licenses shall be cause for
Contract termination. If the Contractor fails to maintain and keep in force the insurance as
provided in #23 of the Standard Terms and Conditions, the DOC has the right to cancel and
terminate the Contract without notice.
1.4.5
If at any time a petition in bankruptcy shall be filed against the Contractor and such petition is not
dismissed within 90 calendar days, or if a receiver or trustee of Contractor's property is appointed
and such appointment is not vacated within 90 calendar days, the DOC has the right, in addition to

independence from the State of Wisconsin, including without limitation Contractor’s control over
the definition, development, practice, and expression of its charitable or religious beliefs. Except
as otherwise provided by state or federal law, Purchaser shall not interpret this Contract to require
a charitable or faith-based organization to alter its form of internal governance or remove religious
art, icons, scriptures, or other symbols.

8.10.3 Neither Purchaser’s selection of a charitable or faith-based contractor to provide the Services
described herein nor the expenditure of funds under this Contract is an endorsement of the
Contractor’s charitable or religious character, practices, or expression. The purpose of this
Contract is the provision of Services; none of Purchaser’s expenditures have as their objective the
funding of sectarian worship, instruction, or proselytization. As such, a faith-based or charitable
Contractor of Services under this Contract shall post at its place(s) of business the following
written notice and personally apprise all assisted inmates of the same:
Neither the State of Wisconsin’s selection of a Charitable or faith-based Contractor of
services or the expenditure of funds under any contract with said Contractor is an
endorsement of that Contractor’s charitable or religious character, practices, or
expression. No Contractor of services may discriminate against you on the basis of
religion, a religious belief, or your refusal to actively participate in a religious practice. If
you object to a particular Contractor because of its religious character, you may request
assignment to a different non-sectarian Contractor by contacting your Agent.
8.10.4 To ensure an inmate is informed of the foregoing, a faith-based or charitable Contractor shall
require that each inmate receiving Services under this Contract signs an acknowledgment form
prepared by the Contractor containing the aforementioned notice and verifying the offender’s
receipt of the same. A copy of all signed acknowledgment forms shall be promptly provided to
Purchaser. Finally, Purchaser will require that each inmate sign the Purchaser’s “Voluntary Choice
and Waiver” form, which will be provided by Purchaser, prior to receiving any Services from a
faith-based or charitable Contractor under this Contract. A faith-based or charitable Contractor
agrees to refrain from providing Services hereunder to an inmate until it receives a copy of a fully
executed Voluntary Choice and Waiver form from Purchaser for that respective offender.

DESIGNATION OF CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION
The attached material submitted in response to Bid/Proposal # SAB-3063 Anger Management Groups in
Peshtigo, WI includes proprietary and confidential information which qualifies as a trade secret, as
provided in s. 19.36(5), Wis. Stats., or is otherwise material that can be kept confidential under the
Wisconsin Open Records Law. As such, we ask that certain pages, as indicated below, of this
bid/proposal response be treated as confidential material and not be released without our written
approval.
Prices always become public information when bids/proposals are opened, and therefore
cannot be kept confidential.
Other information cannot be kept confidential unless it is a trade secret. Trade secret is defined in s.
134.90(1)(c), Wis. Stats. as follows: "Trade secret" means information, including a formula, pattern,
compilation, program, device, method, technique or process to which all of the following apply:
1. The information derives independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally
known to, and not being readily ascertainable by proper means by, other persons who can obtain
economic value from its disclosure or use.
2. The information is the subject of efforts to maintain its secrecy that are reasonable under the
circumstances.
We request that the following pages not be released

The purpose of this directive is to ensure the Division of Community Corrections'
procedures comply with the decision of the United States 7t' Circuit Court of Appeals in
Kerr v. Farrey. 95 F.3d 472 (1996). In that decision, the court ruled that it was a violation
of the 1St Amendment of the United States Constitution to order an offender to attend a
treatment program with religious components. The court considered Alcoholics
Anonymous, for example, to be a program with a religious component since the program
refers to a "higher being" and to "God as we understand him."
An agent may order an offender to attend a specific secular (non-religious) treatment or
support program. An agent may not order an offender to attend a specific program with a
religious component. An offender may voluntarily participate in a treatment or
support program with a religious component as long as a non-religious program is
offered.
An agent may write a rule requiring an offender to attend and complete AODA treatment
without naming a specific program. An agent may also provide an offender with a list of
acceptable programs, as long as both secular and non-secular options are clearly
identified. If an offender chooses to participate in a program having a religious
component, the agent should document in the Chronological Log that a secular program
was offered.

Evidence-Based
Correctional Program Checklist
The Correctional Program Checklist (CPC) is a tool developed to assess the extent to which
correctional treatment programs adhere to the known principles of effective intervention. It is
designed to evaluate the integrity of a program, not outcomes. The CPC is based on the results of
over 500 program assessments and three large outcome studies.
The CPC is divided into two basic areas: Capacity and Content.
The Capacity area is designed to measure whether a correctional program has the capability to
deliver evidence-based interventions and services for offenders. There are three domains in the
capacity area:
CAPACITY
1. Quality Assurance
2. Staff Characteristics
• Program monitoring activities
• Education of the staff
• Reassessment of offenders
• Experience of the staff
• Evaluation
• Assessment & training of the staff
3. Leadership & Development
• Involvement and qualifications of program director
• Implementation and design of the program
• Support for the program
The Content area has two domains and focuses on the substantive domains of Offender Assessment
and Treatment Characteristics, and the extent to which the program meets the principles of risk,
need, responsivity, and treatment.
CONTENT
4. Offender Assessment
• Selection of offenders
• Assessment of offenders
5. Treatment Characteristics
• Targeting of criminogenic needs
• Type of interventions used
• How treatment is delivered
• Provision of aftercare
Information is gathered through structured interviews with selected program staff and program
participants and observation of groups and staff. Other sources of information include policy
manuals, program curriculum, schedules review of case files, surveys, & other selected program
materials
There are several advantages to the CPC:
1. All of the indicators included in the CPC have been found to be correlated with reductions in
recidivism.
2. The process provides a measure of program integrity and quality; it provides insight into the
“black box” of a program, something that an outcome study alone does not provide.
3. The results can be obtained relatively quickly; usually the process takes a day or two and a
report is generated within a few weeks.
4. It identifies both the strengths and weaknesses of a program and provides recommendations
designed to improve the integrity of the program and to increase effectiveness.

Correctional Program Checklist
Evaluation Steps
1. Schedule site visit with program and program evaluators.
2. Day of site visit:
 Interview program/treatment director
 Interview staff
 Interview program participants
 Review case files
 Review program manuals and curricula
 Review assessment instruments
 Observe treatment group(s)
3. Day after the site visits the evaluation team meets to determine the final scores for the program
evaluation.
4. Within one or two weeks after the site visit a draft report detailing evaluation results and
recommendations is sent to the program.
5. Program is given 30 days to respond to the draft report in writing, noting any information that is
incorrect or that was missed.
6. Evaluation team takes program’s response into consideration, then compiles a final report and
sends it to program and anyone else who needs to see it.
7. Within 30 days, the program submits to the Department a “corrective action plan” detailing the
steps it will take to address areas needing improvement based on evaluation recommendations.
8. A follow-up evaluation is done within one year if the program scores below the “effective”
category, within three years if it scores in the “effective” category, and within five years if it scores
in the “highly effective” category.

PROGRAM GUIDELINES:
Programs using evidence based curriculum for groups and training the staff in the delivery of that curriculum will
increase program fidelity. Several factors are noted to be essential to program success as measured by the
difference in recidivism between treatment and control groups. The National Institution of Correction’s curriculum
Offender Risk Reduction: Evidence Based Practice and Cognitive Behavioral Interventions Standard Operating
Procedures (Dec 2001) were used as a reference in the development of these guidelines.
Characteristics consistently associated with program efficacy:
1.
Sound Conceptual Model. Programs based on a cognitive-behavioral theoretical model were the
most beneficial when applied in appropriate dosage according to offender risk and need
measurements.
2.
Multifaceted Programming. Multifaceted programs, which incorporated a variety of techniques in
their intervention strategy, were more beneficial than those correctional programs that relied on a
single method.
3.
Targeting “criminogenic risk factors.” In successful programs, program targets were factors
linked with recidivism such as social cognitions or antisocial attitudes.
4.
Responsivity Principle. Program efficacy was dependent on matching styles and modes of
service to the learning styles, characteristics and abilities of offenders based upon identified risks
and needs.
5.
Role Playing/Modeling. In successful programs, correctional worker/agents modeled anti-criminal
attitudes and behavior. Modeling and role-playing techniques were used to train offenders in
empathy, interpersonal problem solving and social skills, which enabled them to cope pro-socially
with adverse or criminogenic environmental experiences.
6.
Social Cognitive Skills Training. Including program techniques that could have an impact on the
offender’s thinking was of critical importance.
Characteristics that make cognitive behavioral programs effective:
A. Group/Class Setup
1.
The facilitator is present; with the necessary materials adequately organized, and prepared to greet
arriving participants several minutes ahead of the scheduled group time.
2.
Attendance and tardiness are accurately and efficiently documented.
3.
Homework (as required by specific programs) is reviewed, checked, and appropriately reinforced.
4.
Each lesson is introduced so participants have an overview of the session.
5.
The introduction of each lesson should include reasons why content or process should be valued by
the
participants and should be tailored to address each participant’s perspective.
B. Specific Skill Development
1.
The facilitator should define the skill or concept being introduced.
2.
The facilitator should explain why the skill or concept is important and how it is related to other
material
previously covered.
3.
The facilitator should present the thinking and actions that make up the specific skill.
4.
The facilitator should model the skill correctly.
5.
The facilitator should ask questions and make sure all participants understand the specific skill
before moving on to a new skill.
6.
The facilitator should use examples and scenarios that are simple and easy to follow and directly
relevant
to the criminogenic (crime-producing behavior) needs of participants.
7.
The facilitator should allow participants to practice skills as much as possible and devote a
significant
portion (at least two-thirds) of a session to practice and exercises.
8.
The facilitator should provide feedback to participants with at least 80% being positive and
reaffirming.
9.
During the summary session, the facilitator should include a review of what the group is learning,
why the
information is important to participants, and in what specific situations the skills can be
used.
10.
The facilitator should always follow the lesson plan and assign homework as directed by the
curriculum.
EXHIBIT 6
C. Classroom Management
1.
The facilitator should start the session precisely on time.
2.
The facilitator should identify and address (but not judge) any pro-criminal responses and behaviors
(allowing these responses and behaviors to going on without addressing them undermines the
intent of
the curriculum).
3.
The facilitator should maintain a clearly defined set of group participation rules with simple, specific
consequences for violation.
4.
The facilitator should enforce class rules and boundaries.
5.
The facilitator should acknowledge the need for and expect a different level of performance based
on
the individual skills and abilities of the participants.
6.
The facilitator should take the necessary steps (both structural and situational) to insure each
participant
is involved in each session.
7.
The facilitator should use humor appropriately throughout each session.
8.
The facilitator should use the necessary equipment and materials (i.e., flipcharts, chalkboards,
overheads,
TV/VCR, workbook, stapler, paper clips, pens, pencils, and paper) appropriately throughout
each session in addition to access to a copy machine in preparation for sessions.
9.
The program participants should have a workbook or folder to hold loose workbook pages or
additional information, additional paper for note taking, and each participant should be provided with
a pen or pencil.
D. Participant Involvement
1.
Participants should be actively and voluntarily engaged and paying attention throughout each
session.
2.
Participants should be able to demonstrate their understanding of the content and processes used
throughout each session.
3.
Participants should provide positive and innovative input to the session.
4.
Participants should adequately complete class activities and homework assignments.
5.
Participants should demonstrate some understanding of their individual risk factors.
E.
Documentation and Accountability
The facilitator should have a clear and effective system to document the following items:
__ Intake interview process (in addition to pre-testing instrument)
__ Attendance
__ Tardiness
__ Homework (as required by specific programs)
__ Session participation levels
__ Ongoing motivation, skill and participation issues
__ Exit interview process (in addition to post-testing instrument).
F.
Standards
1.
The specific cognitive based curriculum must be followed exactly within the guidelines of that
individual program.
a.
There will be no addition or deletion of content materials.
b.
The program time frame will be adhered to: e.g., number of sessions suggested completing
the
program, and time frame regarding the specific amount of time to complete each session. If
the
program suggests twenty-two sessions at 1 1/2 to 2 hours per session, then it shall be
delivered in
that manner.
