Single Source Procurement: Treatment Adherence Initiative

Pursuant to New York State Finance Law § 163.10(b), The New York State Department of Health is presenting the following summary of relevant circumstances, and material and substantial reasons why a competitive procurement was not feasible.

The New York State Department of Health has made a determination to issue a Single Source Procurement to temporarily extend contract(s) C023869 - C023873 with multiple contractors (see attached list). The Treatment Adherence Initiative objective is designed to foster a comprehensive approach to assessing and assisting consumers infected with HIV at risk for non-adherence to Highly Active Antiviral Therapy (HART) , and promote consumer provider collaboration to develop consumer-specific strategies that lead to sustained treatment adherence.

Contractors were awarded contract(s) as a result of the competitive procurement process. This is a six-month extension of the contract(s) under the same terms, conditions, and pricing authorized under the existing contract(s). The single source extension period will allow for the continuation of critical services pending outcome of a new competitive procurement to obtain these services.
