To Operate a New Program
If you are with an agency that is seeking to operate a local Birth to Three program in Connecticut, you will need to wait until a Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued. RFPs are issued
1. when additional program capacity is needed in one or more areas of the state in which case you would be competing against other agencies that seek to operate a program or
2. when the OEC puts the entire Birth to Three System out to bid in which case agencies already operating Birth to Three programs and agencies that do not will compete with each other. It is anticipated that a system-wide RFP will be issued in the October of 2019.
When an RFP is issued, it will be posted both on the Department of Administrative Services “Biznet” website, as well as on the OEC website and this Birth to Three website. If you would like to receive notification when a Birth to Three Early Intervention Service (EIS) Program RFP is issued, you will need to go to the Biznet website click “Doing Business with the State” then Connecticut Procurement Daily Notice. You will be notified about all RFPs. For more information about Biznet visit https://portal.ct.gov/DAS/Procurement/Contracting/DAS-Procurement-BizNet-Accounts.
