The Department of Juvenile Justice has awarded contracts to two experienced service coordination agencies to develop a statewide continuum of evidence-based treatment services and alternatives to placement in state operated juvenile correctional centers. The two contracted agencies assisting us in our system transformation are AMIkids (AMI) and Evidence Based Associates (EBA). Most of our current provider contracts expire on December 31, 2016, and will not be renewed.
In lieu of renewing those contracts, AMI and EBA are soliciting providers to serve as sub-contractors. The two companies have jointly developed and published a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from which they will select their initial set of sub-contracted direct service providers to begin providing services on or after January 1. Responses to the RFQ will be accepted through December 7. Questions about the RFQ should be submitted by November 23 directly to AMI and EBA.
