The Consolidated Contract with the Washington State Department of Health is the mechanism used to transmit federal and state funding for public health services to the local health jurisdictions where the services are delivered.
This single document combines multiple streams of state and federal funds and provides a consistent form and process for the benefit of all parties. The purpose of this Contract is to define the parties’ joint and cooperative relationship. The contract and all statements of work adopted under its provisions are intended to facilitate the delivery of public health services to the people in Washington State. This Contract is the result of cooperative planning efforts between the LHJ and DOH.
The contract outlines all the required legal aspects of a contract between the Department of Health and the Snohomish Health District. This includes:
- Reporting by the Health District
- Financial controls
- Working with 3rd parties
- Contracting for services
- Purchasing of equipment
- Termination of the contract
Forthcoming contract amendments will provide additional funding allocation for the remaining years of the contract. The amendments are used to add or reduce funding and also to revise or add new scopes of work.
This agreement has been reviewed by the Health District’s legal counsel. During that review, no parts were immediately identified as needing to be revised.
