Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On August 17, 2019 (Legistar file 19-1571), the Board approved a budget transfer for the Sheriff to draw down $30,000 from its Custody Services special revenue fund to participate in a regional effort, lead by Sacramento County to explore the feasibility of a regional in-custody mental health facility. Sacramento conducted a Request for Proposals (RFP) process to identify a consultant to complete the feasibility analysis. The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors awarded the RFP and approved a contract with CGL Companies, LLC in the total amount of $603,895. The costs of the study will be shared by the participating counties, based on each county's proportionate share of population. Contribution amounts are:

Contra Costa $163,584.67
El Dorado $ 27,151.11
Nevada $ 13,997.29
Solano $ 62,455.55
Sutter $ 13,797.18
Yolo $ 31,500.56
Yuba $ 11,026.99
Sacramento $280,381.64

The Sheriff's Office believes that even with the construction of the jail expansion facility, additional bed space will be needed in the region for incarcerated mental health patients.
