Single Source Procurement: School Based Health Center (SBHC) Preventive Dental Services

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.

CAPP is a statewide adolescent pregnancy prevention initiative, awarded through a competitive RFA #1007301230 with contracts for the period 1/1/2011 through 6/30/2016. Funding for the CAPP RFA was based on assuring adequate service provision in the highest need areas of the state. Funding was awarded to 51 organizations across New York State (NYS). Of these, 50 contracts were awarded funding under Part A of the RFA entitled, Comprehensive Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Community-Based Initiative. CAPP is the basis of a statewide primary prevention initiative that utilizes a youth development framework to implement comprehensive, evidence-based, and medically accurate sexuality education; ensure access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare and family planning services for teens; expand educational, social, recreational, vocational and economic opportunities for teens; promote a sustainable local community effort to improve the environment for adolescents; and reduce health disparities related to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and geography.

The remaining CAPP contract (C027009), The Trustees of Columbia University in the City of New York, was funded through Component B of the RFA entitled, Improving Community Healthcare Services for Adolescents Initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to increase the capacity of community healthcare providers who serve adolescents in primary and specialty care settings to provide accessible, high quality, sexual, reproductive, and other preventive healthcare services to adolescents.

This six month extension request is based on the annual funding amount for each CAPP contractor funded under the current CAPP RFA.

Contractors were awarded contract(s) as a result of the competitive procurement process. The single source extension period will allow for the continuation of critical services pending outcome of a new competitive procurement to obtain these services.
