Phase I: Preparation

An agency must begin by developing a written description of the services.  If the agency decides to contract out, it must determine the anticipated cost and term of the service to be provided.  If State statutes require an agency to select a Contractor through a competitive negotiation (i.e., an RFP process), then an agency must do so.


Phase II: Request For Proposals

When required by State statutes, an agency conducts an RFP process to select a Contractor. 


There are six major steps in a typical RFP process: (1) organizing a Team to conduct the process; (2) writing the RFP document; (3) writing an evaluation plan; (4) issuing the RFP; (5) reviewing the proposals submitted in response to the RFP; and (6) selecting the Contractor.

Purchase of Service (POS)

A Purchase of Service (POS) contract is a legally binding agreement/document that defines the services or end product to be delivered to a state agency.  A POS contract is used to purchase ongoing and routine human services for clients from private providers such as child guidance clinics or extended day treatment centers.  Once services and cost are agreed upon, a contract is signed.

Personal Service Agreement (PSA)

A Personal Service Agreement (PSA) is a legally binding contract that defines the services or end product to be delivered by a Personal Service Contractor to a state Department or agency. Typically, a PSA is used to purchase infrequent and non-routine services or an end product, such as specialized health services, consultant services, technical assistance and training. By state law, no state Department or agency may pay a contractor to deliver such services or end product without first executing a PSA.
