RECOMMENDATION
Approve execution of Agreement Amendment No. 1 with The Doctor’s Center-Urgent Care for RFP 3018-16 Alcohol and Controlled Substances Specimen Testing Program.
BACKGROUND
The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals for providing assistance in the development and implementation of an alcohol and controlled substances testing program (herein referred to as “the program”) for approximately 70 drivers employed by the County who operate commercial motor vehicles and are subject to testing for alcohol misuse and controlled substances use under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) testing program rules. In addition, the RFP requires assistance in the controlled substances testing program of approximately 750 employees in safety sensitive positions subject to testing under the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1984, or any of 1,500 employees in a reasonable suspicion basis. The County’s objective is to enter into an agreement that will provide comprehensive services for the program, including breath alcohol and split urine sample controlled substances testing of covered drivers; Medical Review Officer (MRO) services for controlled substances test, and other direct related services requested by the County. This RFP was developed pursuant to the testing requirements set forth in regulations implementing the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 as it related to County employees required to hold a commercial drivers’ license to operate a commercial motor vehicle (49 CFR 40 and CFR 382). The term of the contract shall be for thirty-six (36) months, with the option to renew. Each renewal, if mutually acceptable to the Contractor and Nueces County, will be in twelve (12) month increments, not to exceed two (2) additional years past the initial term.
