DOH Issues Letters to FIs Granting Eligibility for Authorization

The Department of Health (DOH) has informed organizations about their eligibility to be Lead Fiscal Intermediaries (FIs) as part of the “second level” of awardees under the State’s Request for Offers (RFO) process for the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP). 

DOH advises those selected that their award “is contingent upon successful and timely submission of forthcoming contract documents, including a vendor responsibility review and final approval of the contract by the Office of the New York State Comptroller (OSC).”

The Department states that those FIs who were not awarded, within 10 business days of the date of the letter, can file a protest following OSC procedures, which can be found in Chapter XI, Section 17 of the Guide to Financial Operations (GFO). DOH notes that it will not be conducting any debriefings.

Current FIs who are not selected are required to cease operations according to Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) Policy 21.01 within 90 days of the “Contract Notification Date,” defined as the date the Department first publishes on the RFO webpage a list of Lead FIs who have contracts executed by OSC resulting from awards under the RFO and Attestation.

FIs who choose to continue operations until the Contract Notification Date as defined above will be required to follow the transition guidance provided under MLTC Policy 21.01 Scenario 2.

More information, including a list of the new awardees, is expected to be available here.
