Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $713,738)

This project faced challenges from the beginning due to COVID and staffing issues. The department was able to submit a request for purchase (RFP) earlier this year in September 2023. This contract was extended twice, and no bids were received. The steering team for this project had to evaluate next steps and alternative options. Fortunately, the team was notified that there was available federal FTE that could be used for the RBHS (previously JMHS) positions. The department will no longer be contracting these three (3) positions and will be using federal FTE for two (2) positions and the third will be department funded due to insufficient funds. A financial GAM has been submitted to reflect budgetary changes.
