Employment and Community Inclusion Services for Adults with Developmental Disabilities RFQ
There is a significant change in the way the Spokane County Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department (CSHCD) will be contracting with new providers for Employment and Community Inclusion services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As required in our new contract with the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA), we are moving to an "open continuous, qualification process." This means that we will be accepting proposal on an ongoing basis. Please see the schedule of when future applications received will be reviewed.
Approximately 900 people are authorized to receive services from qualified providers for one or all of the following services: Individual and Group Supported Employment, and Community Inclusion services. You may see the current rate schedule on the RFQ documents page. Rates may change as a result of any changes in allocation from the state legislature or DDA.
Periodic re-qualification for contracting is done through the Spokane County CSHCD monitoring process. Enrollment in any qualified agency is determined by the choice of those authorized by DDA to receive services. In addition, agencies qualified to provide Individual Employment services are able to provide services to people enrolled in the County's Bridge and School To Work Projects.
Agencies currently contracted for Employment and Community Access services do not need to reply to this RFQ.
