On March 14, 2022, the Health District released a request for proposal (RFP) to select a new vendor to provide sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment for District clients. The contract with our previous vendor had expired. The District received one bid during the RFP period from Ideal Option. Prevention Services Division Director Katie Curtis, Prevention Services Assistant Director Carrie Parker, and STD supervisor Lisa Roberts served as the evaluation committee and reviewed and scored the responsive submittal.
The bid from Ideal Option covered the required items the District was looking for in a vendor. Staff recommend an initial one-year term for the agreement to evaluate the value of the service provided at the end of the initial term before committing to a longer partnership.
Consistent with Resolution 19-20 and the revised Division of Responsibilities (10/8/19), the Board of Health retains contract authority for non-legal services greater than $50,000/year or $100,000/total contract.
MOVE TO authorize the Administrative Officer to enter into an agreement with Ideal Option to provide sexually-transmitted disease testing and treatment for Health District clients.
