Questions
 
 
Submitted Date Question Answer
06/14/2022 Is it allowable to split a current whole/larger service area into more than one section and have more than one subcontractor in order to have the reach required of the RFA? A current subcontractor has indicated they cannot feasibly cover the service area in entirety. If a service area cannot be split among more than one subcontractor, can the service area be trimmed in the RFA in order to reflect only the counties to be serviced this funding year due capacity and reach of subcontractor/contractor? According to section 1.04 the applicant should refer to the RFP #58822018, for service delivery area parameters. Any changes in the current service delivery area must adhere to these instructions. Any service delivery area changes for this RFA must be agreed to by existing contractors and applicable boards of health, and approved by the Department.

Also, according to the Subcontract Plan in the RFA, applicant shall identify if subcontracts are proposed, and if so, the applicant shall include the scope of work of subcontracted services; anticipated amount for each proposed subcontract; the name, contact information, experience of subcontractor (if known at the time of application); and the delivery area(s) to be served through the subcontract. The contractor is allowed to have more than one subcontractor to cover the service delivery area.
