body
BACKGROUND:
On May 16, 2017, the Board approved an agreement with Stericycle Inc. to provide medical waste disposal. The agreement has been amended multiple times to add emergency response services and service locations.

DISCUSSION:
Due to the recent COVID-19 response, San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) is requesting the Board extend the term of the agreement through May 31, 2021, with an associated increase in funding. This will allow SMMC time to complete a Request for Proposal for these services and get a new agreement in place.

This amendment is coming to the Board late due to delays related to the COVID-19 response.

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 four-year term for this agreement.

It is anticipated that the medical and pharmaceutical waste generated by the Health Services will be disposed of in 100% compliance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
