Description:

The New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) Division of Juvenile Justice and Opportunities for Youth (DJJOY) operates the state's residential juvenile justice programs for juvenile delinquents and juvenile offenders and oversees locally operated foster care, child abuse, daycare, and Youth Development and Delinquency Prevention Programs (YDDPP) for juvenile delinquents and juvenile offenders. 

OCFS DJJOY is issuing this Invitation for Bids (IFB) to seek contractors to provide psychiatric services for juvenile delinquent youth and youthful offenders residing at Brentwood Residential Center and Industry Residential Center.

Please see IFB Section 4.1 Method of Award and IFB Section 4.2 Price for details regarding the maximum bid rate and how awards will be made.   

Please Note:  All services covered under this procurement are expected to be delivered in-person (unless stated otherwise). OCFS reserves the right to allow for telepsychiatry services, at its sole discretion, when it is determined to be in the best interest of the State.

If telepsychiatry services are allowed during the contract by OCFS, all required services to youth as indicated in IFB Section 3.2 Product/Service Specifications and IFB Section 3.3 Delivery are expected to be delivered.
