Section IV is the statement of work.

In taking a look at the RFP for JD4 Fiscal Agency, it looks like the request is for Fiscal Agency as well as assessment/screening. Is the expectation that the Fiscal Agent must also be the contractor that provides assessment and screening services? Would a contractor that subcontracts an assessment/screening Provider be considered, or is there a reason the two services are combined in the RFP?

Joint Initiatives is the Fiscal Agent for CYDC funding. We received this award in February of 2021 and it began July 1, 2021 to be received over the next five years.


Joint Initiatives, as the fiscal agent posted the Request for Proposal to sub-contract out the following services under a single provider: Screening, Assessment, Care Coordination, and Tracking/Supervision for delinquent youth in El Paso County.
