Request for Proposal

The United States District Court for the District of Idaho is soliciting proposals to provide treatment services and/or urine collection services for Federal persons under supervision. The vendor would provide services for male and female federal defendants/persons under supervision who have been ordered by the Court to participate in treatment.  These individuals include persons on probation, supervised release, or parole, who are under supervision of the United States Probation Office, as well as persons on Pretrial status under the supervision of United States Pretrial Services Office.

Starting September 15, 2023, the Request for Proposals (RFP), can be accessed, downloaded, and/or printed by accessing the District of Idaho, United States Probation and Pretrial Services solicitation website at:   Please ensure you enter the entire address listed above in your browser. Upon accessing the site, you may navigate to the RFPs via location type.

The RFP contains the full text of all applicable Government regulations, and all offerors are subject to the provisions contained in the RFP.  In responding to the RFP, you should answer fully each item and supply all information requested.

Section “L” provides specific directions for potential vendors in completing the proposal.  The offeror should fully read Section “L” and follow the directions set forth.  The minimum standards for the services listed are contained in the Clauses and Terms of Agreement.  All proposals will be evaluated by the criterion explained in Section “M.”  Note if you intend to subcontract any services, instructions are included in Section “L” the offeror should follow.

Proposals will be awarded on the basis of initial offers submitted, and each initial offer should contain your organization’s best terms from a cost and technical standpoint. There will be no additional opportunity to modify your proposal.

Please read the RFP carefully; do not rely on knowledge of previous RFPs, or knowledge or previous Federal procurement procedures.  As a reminder, the vendor must have a site within the catchment area (unless otherwise indicated in the RFP), which will be evaluated during an on–site visit. Note: a catchment area may consist of multiple counties/zip codes, in which case the vendor must have a site within at least one of the counties/zip codes identified in that catchment area. 

A vendor must be capable of providing all services identified in Section “B,” including local services identified at the end of Section C, and must have a site located within the geographic area identified in Section “B.”  If the vendor is unable to provide a service identified in Section B and does not identify/subcontract with someone to provide the service, the vendor will be technically unacceptable.

The estimated monthly quantity listed in Section “B” of the RFP is the estimate of the services to be provided during the term of this agreement. It is only an estimate.  For urine collection services, all testing supplies will be supplied by the U.S. Probation Office, at no cost to the vendor.

Although the Government may choose to enter into a Blanket Purchase Agreement with multiple vendors, the Government reserves the right to award to a single vendor. The term for this Blanket Purchase Agreement is twelve (12) months, with provisions that shall allow the Government to unilaterally extend the agreement for an additional two (2) years, at two (2) twelve (12) month intervals, at the Government’s discretion.
