Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND:

Under Agreement #5086, the Center for Common Concerns (HomeBase) will provide technical assistance, training and support to both the El Dorado Opportunity Knocks Continuum of Care (CoC), and to County Homeless Program staff, to ensure adherence to federal and state rules and regulations with regard to a homeless system of care.  This Agreement #5086 is a three-party agreement wherein HomeBase will provide technical assistance to the CoC on an as-requested basis, as well as technical assistance to the HHSA Homeless Program staff on an as-requested basis.

 

The County has recently begun hiring staff and establishing a Homelessness Program.  To ensure the program meets the necessary criteria to receive ongoing funding, including but not limited to funding through Housing and Urban Development (HUD), it is important that this consultant continues to provide support to both HHSA and the CoC.

 

In accordance with Board of Supervisors Procurement Policy C-17, Section 7.11, the contractor selection process for service contracts in excess of $100,000 must include a review of the scope of services and contractor’s professional qualifications by a group of individuals (including at least one representative from outside the department requesting the services) qualified to judge the contractor’s ability to perform the services.  HHSA has documentation on file that such a review was performed for Agreement #5086.

 

ALTERNATIVES:

Should the Board decline to approve this Agreement #5086, both the EDOK CoC and the HHSA Homeless Program staff would not receive the technical assistance and support needed to continue developing and implementing the Homeless system of care.
