RECOMMENDATION
Authorize execution of agreement with Armor Correctional RFP No. 3137-20 Medical Services for Nueces County.
BACKGROUND
Inmate medical services are to be provided at the Nueces County Jail Facilities (“Facilities”). The facilities are comprised of two jail locations.

This RFP addresses the provision of ambulatory and infirmary inmate medical services at the Jail and ambulatory inmate medical services at the Annex using the Existing Medical Units.

Proposer may request to renew or not to renew the original contract as amended from time to time, at the same terms, conditions, by giving six (6) months written notice of its intent before the term ends.  Each renewal, if any, will be in one (1) year increments, not to exceed two (2) additional years past the initial term. This contract may be terminated by either party for any reason by giving six (6) months written notice of intent to terminate.

Current contract with Wellpath, LLC. for inmate medical services at the Nueces County Jail is due to expire November 30, 2020.
