Instructions for Request For Proposals (RFPs) to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Providers
Thank you for your interest in providing mental health and substance abuse treatment services for male and female federal persons under supervision for the United States Court for the District of Utah.

These services could also include persons under suoervision that are also in sex offender treatment or need to register as a sex offender.
The Request for Proposals (RFPs) on this web site are listed by specific catchment areas for specific services, identified by cities and/or zip codes within that area, and you must have a service location within that geographic area in order for us to consider your proposal.
Please Note: Proposal submission has changed from previous solicitations. Per the RFP, Section L, by submission of a signed proposal, including the Certificate of Compliance (Attachment A), the offeror is agreeing to comply with all requirements, terms, and conditions, of this solicitation and any resultant agreement of contract. The Offeror is not required to submit solicitation sections C, D, E, F, G, H, and I as part of its proposal. Please review Section L carefully.
The RFP contains the full text of all applicable Government regulations and all offerors are subject to the provisions contained in the RFP. When responding to the RFP, you should answer fully each item and supply all information requested. Section "L" provides specific directions for potential vendors in completing their proposals. The minimum standards for the services listed are contained in the Clauses and Terms of Agreement, and all proposals will be evaluated by the criteria identified in Section "M."
Proposals will be awarded on the basis of initial offers submitted, and each initial offer should contain your organization's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. There will be no additional opportunity to modify your prices or proposal.
Please read the RFP carefully; do not rely on knowledge of previous RFPs, or knowledge or previous federal procurement procedures. The estimated monthly quantity listed in Section "B" of the RFP is the estimate of the services to be provided during the term of this agreement. It is only an estimate.
Although the Government may choose to enter into a Blanket Purchase Agreement with multiple vendors, the Government reserves the right to award to a single vendor.
The term of this Blanket Purchase Agreement is twelve (12) months beginning October 1, 2020, with a provision that shall allow the Government to unilaterally extend the agreement for an additional two (2) years, at two (2) twelve (12) month intervals, beginning October 1, 2021, and 2022, at the Government's discretion.
