Single Source Procurement: Healthy Neighborhoods 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 contract(s) C025970 - C025979 with multiple contractors (see attached list). The Healthy Neighborhoods Program is a primary prevention program that began in New York State in 1985. Home assessments are conducted in socio-economic challenged areas of New York State to provide interventions and preventive measures to achieve healthy homes. Homes are assessed for public health issues including asthma triggers, indoor air quality, lead hazards, fire safety, injury prevention, radon, vermin, and other hazards which impact the health of New York State's citizens, especially children. Staff provide education and interventions to the residents regarding environmental issues and recommend preventive measures, agencies and services that can assist the resident, and green cleaning products. The Department contracts with ten county health department programs that use a door to door approach and methodology to achieve proposed goals and objectives in targeted areas.

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.
