BACKGROUND:
On January 12, 2015, S/T Health Group Consulting, Inc. (STHGC) and the County entered into an agreement to provide pharmacy consulting and audit services at San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC). The Board has approved subsequent amendments to the agreement, extending the term through January 31, 2020 and increasing the amount payable to an amount not to exceed to $600,000.

DISCUSSION:
This amendment will allow STHGC to implement recommendations based on their audit findings for optimizing SMMC's pharmaceutical purchases. In addition, SMMC is requesting that the Board approve extending the term of the agreement through January 31, 2024, with an associated increase in funding. SMMC plans to do a Request-for-Proposal at the end of the amended agreement.

The amendment and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.

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

The County's Contract Compliance Committee has approved a waiver request for a nine-year term for this agreement.

It is anticipated that at least 95% of the items in the pharmacy Charge Description Master (CDM) will have the correct National Drug Code numbers.
