RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Contract #24-751-91 with Bay Area Community Services, Inc., a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $2,627,206, to provide community services, support programs and residential mental health services to County clients for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which includes a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $1,313,603.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $2,627,206 and will be funded by 55% Mental Health Realignment ($1,444,963); 33% Federal Medi-Cal ($866,978) and 12% Mental Health Services Act ($315,265) revenues. (Rate increase)

BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of the County’s population by providing a continuum of services to residents transitioning from crisis residential care to transitional residential care and keeps these clients out of higher levels of care, including State hospitals.  



BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)
  
The County previously contracted with Anka Behavioral Health, Inc. for such services, through May 2019 until it filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy, and the County assigned the contract to Bay Area Community Services, Inc. effective June 1, 2019. On November 5, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Novation Contract #24-751-90 with Bay Area Community Services, Inc. to provide community services, support programs and residential mental health services to County clients, for the period from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, which included a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020.  
  
Approval of Novation Contract #24-751-91 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, clients will not receive mental health services provided by this contractor.
