AI-13501 2.H.       
Meeting Date: 04/28/2021  
Approve request for proposals for Alcohol, controlled substances & blood specimen testing
Submitted By: Michael Robinson, Purchasing Department
Department: Purchasing Department  

Approve a finding for the method of procurement (request for proposals) for the alcohol, controlled substances & blood specimen testing; authorize the Purchasing Agent to publish a notice; and adopt an order delegating evaluation authority to a selection committee.
The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals for providing assistance in the development and implementation of an alcohol and controlled substances testing program (herein referred to as “the program”). This is for drivers employed by the County who operate commercial motor vehicles and are subject to testing for alcohol misuse and controlled substances use under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) testing program rules. In addition, the RFP requires assistance in the controlled substances testing program of employees in safety sensitive positions subject to testing under the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1984, or any employees on a reasonable suspicion basis.

The County’s objective is to enter into an agreement that will provide comprehensive services for the program, including breath alcohol and split urine sample controlled substances testing of covered drivers; Medical Review Officer (MRO) services for controlled substances test; and other direct related services requested by the County.

This RFP is developed pursuant to the testing requirements set forth in regulations implementing the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 as it related to County employees required to hold a commercial drivers’ license to operate a commercial motor vehicle (49 CFR 40 and CFR 382).
