Tri-Counties Regional Center (TCRC) opens a Request for Proposals (RFP) cycle following an extensive needs assessment process in which critical unmet needs have been identified. Individuals and agencies offering an identified service may submit proposals following the instructions provided with the RFP announcement. Proposals are reviewed and one or more in each service category selected to move to the next stage of development. Selected applicants are asked to submit a full program design using guidelines provided by TCRC. These program designs are reviewed by an interdisciplinary team for compliance with applicable regulations and use of best practices. When the program design has been approved, the provider is asked to complete and return TCRC vendorization forms including a cost statement and other documentation such as licenses. The final step is the signing of a payment agreement or contract. Once the process has been completed, the newly vendored provider is assigned a unique vendor identification number and is ready to receive referrals.
