REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
RFP 0478
The Jefferson Parish Department of Purchasing is soliciting Request for Proposals (RFPs) from qualified proposers to provide technical accounting assistance and related grant management services for the Jefferson Parish Department Jefferson Community Action Programs (JeffCAP) Head Start Birth-5.
Jefferson Parish seeks to engage a qualified accounting consultant to assist the Department of Jefferson Community Action Programs (JeffCAP) Head Start Birth-Five with technical assistance and related management services, on an immediate basis for programs funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families Services.
The JeffCAP Accounting Unit staff members use the Parish AS400 system to input program and salary expenses that are then processed and paid by Jefferson Parish. Drawdowns for these expenses are then subsequently performed in the various financial management systems (e.g., Grant Solutions, PMS, HSES, and CACFP) to notify Office of Head Start (OHS), the Department of Health and Human Services Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture of these payments. OHS then issues reimbursement to Jefferson Parish shortly after notification. Additionally, both JeffCAP Accounting Unit staff members and members of the managerial staff work together to perform periodic, deadline-driven annual reporting in all financial management systems.
All proposals will be evaluated on criteria such as vendor’s technical proposal, qualifications and experience, financial profile and proposal responsiveness and other criteria more specifically defined in the RFP document. The maximum total points for each proposal are set at 100 points.
Submittals will be accepted through Central Bidding. Responses will be received until 3:30 P.M. on March 15, 2024. RFPs may be obtained by visiting the Jefferson Parish Purchasing Department webpage at www.http://purchasing.jeffparish.net and selecting the LaPAC Tab. RFPs may also be viewed and submitted online without charge at: www.jeffparishbids.net. Effective November 1, 2020, Jefferson Parish no longer accepts manual submissions. Submissions will only be accepted electronically via the Parish’s e-Procurement system, Central Bidding. All vendors will be required to register with Central Bidding.
The Jefferson Parish Council reserves the right to accept or reject any and all proposals, in whole or part, pursuant to the law. Jefferson Parish and its partners, as the recipients of federal funds, are fully committed to awarding a contract(s) to firm(s) that will provide high quality services and that are dedicated to diversity and to containing costs. Thus, Jefferson Parish strongly encourages the involvement of minority and/or woman-owned business enterprises (DBE’s, including MBE’s, WBE’s and SBE’s) to stimulate participation in procurement and assistance programs.
