BACKGROUND:
In May 2019, San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) completed a Request for Proposals (RFP) for pathology and histology services. Peninsula Pathologists Medical Group (PPMG) was the only vendor who responded to the RFP. The Chief Executive Officer of SMMC approved an agreement with PPMG for the term of June 1, 2019 through August 31, 2019, in an amount not to exceed $100,000 to ensure services were continued and allow SMMC time to bring an amendment to your Board.

DISCUSSION:
This amendment will extend PPMG's pathology and histology services through May 31, 2022, and increase the amount by $830,000 to an amount not to exceed $930,000.

The amendment and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form. The agreement is coming to your Board late due to prolonged negotiations.

The resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

Approval of this amendment contributes to the Shared Vision 2025 outcome of a Healthy Community by providing pathology blocks and slide preparation for accurate diagnosis and treatment of disease. It is anticipated that 100% of blocks and slides will be returned to the lab for analysis within 48 hours from time of pick-up.
