RECOMMENDATION:

title

Adopt a resolution authorizing an amendment to the agreement with David McIntyre for the provision of assessment, psychological testing and evaluation services for youth, increasing the amount by $172,208, to an amount not to exceed $272,208 with no change to the agreement term.

 

body

BACKGROUND:

In April 2007, Mental Health Services issued an RFP for youth assessment services.  No proposals were received for these services. David McIntyre was subsequently identified by staff as the only known qualified provider of these services.

 

On June 11, 2019, the Director of Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) approved an agreement with David McIntyre for assessment and testimony on selected special education cases, for the term of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $100,000.

 

DISCUSSION:

David McIntyre will provide psychological assessments for special education youth referred for mental health services under Chapter 26.5 of the Government Code. Services will also include psychological testing and evaluations for youth in the juvenile justice system; assessments and testimony in selected cases requiring mediation and/or fair hearings; and clinical supervision of clinical psychology interns. These services were previously provided by two contractors, David McIntyre and Bess Bruce, but Bess Bruce recently retired. The amendment is necessary so that David McIntyre can take over the role fully and continue to provide these services. 

 

BHRS is requesting to waive the Request for Proposal process until June 30, 2021, in order to provide continuity of current services and prepare for an RFP for these services in FY 2021-22.

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

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

 

It is anticipated that 100% of assessments will be completed by the dates set by the referring juvenile court or probation officer.
