Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider making a finding for the method of procurement (request for proposals) for medical service at the Main Jail, McKinzie Annex and Juvenile Department; authorize the Purchasing Agent to publish a notice; and adopt an order delegating evaluation authority to a selection committee.
BACKGROUND
Inmate medical services are to be provided at the Nueces County Jail Facilities (“Facilities”). The facilities are comprised of two jail locations.

This RFP addresses the provision of ambulatory and infirmary inmate medical services at the Jail and ambulatory inmate medical services at the Annex using the Existing Medical Units. This RFP does not include the provision of inpatient or outpatient inmate healthcare services that cannot be reasonably provided within the facilities. Such services are covered under a separate indigent healthcare agreement maintained by the Nueces County Hospital District (a separate governmental entity from Nueces County). The Offeror will be responsible for maintaining a liaison with and coordinating external inmate healthcare services with the Hospital District’s indigent health care contractor, Christus Spohn Health System Hospitals.

The Juvenile Department is also in need for medical services for juveniles.
DISCUSSION
Current contract with Naphcare for inmate medical services at the Jail is due to expire November 30, 2015.
