Single Source Procurement: HIV/STI Viral Hepatitis Training 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 HIV/STI Viral Hepatitis Training Services Program has made a determination to issue a Single Source Procurement to 11 eligible grantees to support ongoing currently funded projects.

The funds through this will provide professional training, capacity building, and educational interventions throughout NYS to support the effectiveness of non-physician health and human services providers, public health staff, peer workers, and consumer leaders in promoting an effective response to HIV, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and viral hepatitis.

The program will assist in implementing the strategies outlined in Governor Cuomo’s three point plan to end the AIDS epidemic in NYS and the Ending the Epidemic (ETE) Blueprint (BP). Training programs will enhance the capacity of the target audience to deliver high impact primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention interventions to persons at elevated risk for HIV, STIs, and viral hepatitis, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and gender non-conforming people, people who use drugs, and people from communities of color.
