Residential Child Care RFP – Provider Performance Reports

Residential Child Care RFP – Provider Performance Reports

On June 12, 2013, the Maryland Board of Public Works awarded new, 3-year contracts to 44 separate residential child care (RCC) providers who serve a total of 760 children at various locations throughout the state. These awards followed a lengthy request for proposals process, through which the Maryland Department of Resources received 71 proposals from 58 offerors.

For the first time in the Department’s history, these contract awards included an evaluation of performance-based measures for each provider to ensure the continued safety and well-being of children in care. The measures were developed with input from key stakeholders and providers to ensure children receive consistent, quality services when placed in a foster care home.

The following performance measures were used as part of the evaluation of proposals for awarding contracts.

Indicator Performance Measure Available Points
A. Child Safety (50%) Staff Security 30
Maltreatment while in Foster Care 20
B. Licensing and Monitoring (40%) Licensing Sanctions 20
SSA Hotlist 5
Annual Financial Audits 15
C. Child Well-Being (10%) CANS Compliance 10
TOTAL: 100

Each offeror was provided a performance report and given an opportunity to correct inaccuracies before submitting a proposal to the Department. The new contracts will begin July 1, 2013.
