We just issued a Request for Proposal to find a contractor to make eligibility determinations regarding whether or not folks meet the criteria for determination as seriously mentally ill (SMI) in Maricopa County. The idea is to have an objective process for eligibility determinations by contracting with an independent entity. The contractor will be responsible for decisions regarding eligibility determinations, including all the administrative responsibilities. Proposals are due date March 7, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. on ProcureAZ. Once proposals are submitted, a committee will review the proposals and a new contract will be awarded (starting October 1). Here’s the Bidders Library and Documents Incorporated by Reference (under “ADHS13-00002633 – Serious Mental Illness Eligibility Determination for Behavioral Health).

Our interdisciplinary team completed a major milestone this week- by developing an initial rough draft of what will become the Scope of Work that will be included in the upcoming Request for Proposal for the behavioral health (and acute care) services in Maricopa County. This effort has taken literally thousands of staff hours to put together- and the folks working on the project have to do double-time because they still need to accomplish their normal daily tasks. Well done- and take a well deserved breath!
