ESTIMATED PURCHASES The estimated budget for these services is $130,000, however, the County does not guarantee that any minimum amount of services will be purchased. METHOD OF CONTRACTING A Services Contract form is provided in the Buyer Attachments page showing the standard terms and conditions.  Carefully review the terms and conditions of the Contract. TERM OF CONTRACT The anticipated contract period for this service is July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2024. CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS The County will initiate contract negotiations with the responsive and responsible Proposer with the awarded supplier. Multnomah County may, at its option, elect to negotiate general contract terms and conditions, services, pricing, implementation schedules, and such other terms as the County determines are in the County’s best interest. If negotiations fail to result in a contract, the County reserves the right to terminate the negotiations and initiate contract negotiations with another who is a responsive and responsible Proposer. The County may choose to concurrently negotiate between two or more proposers. This process may continue until a contract agreement is reached. CONTRACT AWARD AND ALLOCATION PROCESS This is a competitive Request for Intermediate Programmatic Qualifications (RIPQ) process as provided for under the authority of PUR-1. No contracts will be issued as a result of this RIPQ process. Our intent is to establish a pool of qualified vendors who will be eligible for potential contract awards. There is no limit on the number of vendors that may be qualified under this RIPQ process.  ALLOCATION PROCESS Entirely separate from this qualification process, the County shall initiate and award a contract to a supplier who demonstrates the desired qualifications outlined in the Scope of Work, Position Description and answers to the Evaluation Questions.  After the proposers are qualified, the County will ask these agency’s to provide a list of candidates that the County may choose from to interview. Contract negotiations will follow the County's identification of a viable candidate, a candidate who has met the required qualifications to the satisfaction of the County. Additional candidates will be provided until these qualifications are met to the satisfaction of the County. Allocation priorities and selection criteria may include: County and Department strategic priorities; Overall needs and deficiencies; Contractors Availability; RIPQ proposal information and evaluation input from the RIPQ evaluation panel; Provider experience; Customer feedback; Past performance (engagement); Extent of provision of like services by any one agency; and Other factors as deemed appropriate by the funding allocation team. Since the allocation process considers a variety of factors, funding may go to qualified Proposers who did not earn the highest overall RIPQ qualified score. Therefore, it will be possible to qualify under this RIPQ process and not receive a funding allocation. After the Department provides written solicitation results to all Proposers and with the completion of the separate allocation process by Health Department, Health Department staff will contact the successful and qualified Proposer(s) who will receive an allocation for contract negotiations. Contracts do not guarantee any level of funding and funding levels may change from year to year. All Proposers seeking to provide services must submit a proposal and receive a minimum 70% of the total points possible in order to qualify.
