Single Source Procurement: Clinical Education Initiative

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 contract(s) C023553, C023555 - C023557, C024395, C024882, C026913 with multiple contractors (see attached list). The clinical Education Initiative is designed to meet the educational needs of providers throughout New York State by offering clinically relevant, up-to-date opportunities and training on current topics associated with HIV and assisting HIV programs in developing a training plan for their faculty and staff.

Contractors were awarded contract(s) as a result of the competitive procurement process. This is a six-month extension of the contract(s) under the same terms, conditions, and pricing authorized under the existing contract(s). The single source extension period will allow for the continuation of critical services pending outcome of a new competitive procurement to obtain these services.
