Single Source Procurement: Migrant/Seasonal Farmworker (MSFW) Health Program

Pursuant to New York State Finance Law § 163.10(b), The New York State Department of Health is presenting the following summary of relevant circumstances, and material and substantial reasons why a competitive procurement was not feasible.

The New York State Department of Health has made a determination to issue a Single Source Procurement to temporarily extend the Migrant/Seasonal Farmworker (MSFW) Health Program contract(s) with multiple contractors (see attached list) for an additional six months. The Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Health Program assures the accessibility and availability of quality, culturally appropriate medical and dental health care and support services for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families. Health and supportive services for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families include screening, diagnosis, treatment and referral for conditions requiring specialty medical and dental services. These programs also offer comprehensive primary and preventive health services specifically targeted to children (up to 18 years of age).

This request will continue contracts with currently funded providers until newly selected providers can begin to deliver services. Contractors were awarded contracts as a result of the competitive procurement process. This is a 6 month extension of the contracts under the same terms, conditions, and pricing authorized under the existing contracts. The single source extension period will allow for the continuation of critical services pending outcome of a new competitive procurement to obtain these services.
