Update: September 30, 2016: Due to the volume of response on the RFPs, we will be waiving the Letter of Intent requirement as stated in Section 2.1
Please be advised that there is a correction in the intent, specific to titling of the two (2) Long Island RFPs currently available. For the RFP that was released on 9/28/16, with a due date of 11/2/16, and in error titled “Scattered-Site Supportive Housing for Adults with Serious Mental Illness Long Island re-allocation of existing units” these are new beds, not a re-allocation of existing beds. The RFP that was posted on 9/21/16, with a due date of 10/26/16 and titled “Scattered-Site Supportive Housing for Adults with Serious Mental Illness Long Island” is a re-allocation of existing beds.
Update: October 21 2016: Please be advised that there is a correction Section 1.1/Purpose of the Request for Proposal specific to the number of beds available and subsequently because of this change, the due date for proposals. There are a total of 106 beds available; 21 beds in Suffolk County and 85 in Nassau County. The 21 beds in Suffolk County include five (5) beds designated to serve individuals meeting certain criteria detailed in Section 1.1 of the RFP. As a result of this change, the due date has been extended until 11/4/2016.
Update – October 28, 2016: Please be advised that in case of a tie in the scoring process, the proposal with the highest total score on the Proposal Narrative Section (40 points) will be ranked higher.
