Single Source Procurement: Regional HIV Prevention & Support 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. The New York State Department of Health Regional HIV Prevention & Support Services Program has made a determination to issue a Single Source Procurement to 15 eligible grantees to support ongoing currently funded projects

The funds through this will provide a high impact approach to prevention efforts. Funding allows for the provision of targeted HIV testing; behavioral counseling; STD/HCV screening; targeted client recruitment; evidence based interventions to HIV positive persons, their partners and persons who engage in high risk behaviors; harm reduction services; linkage and navigation to care; condom education, promotion, and distribution; health promotion activities; community engagement and mobilization activities; and other services.

The program,(also known as Community Service Program or CSP) ensures organizational viability and maintains a regional structure for the provision of HIV/STD/HCV prevention and support services. This important core funding is intended to be a foundation from which other funding sources are secured to strengthen capacity and build HIV/STD/HCV related programming in the agency’s target region.
