State of New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts: Safe Exchange and Supervised Visitation Services – San Juan CountyDeadline: May 7, 2019
The Administrative Office of the Courts is soliciting proposals for one or more contractors to provide Safe Exchange and Supervised Visitation services in the 11th Judicial District (San Juan County). A judicial district may create a Safe Exchange and Supervised visitation program by local court rule approved by the Supreme Court. “The program shall be used when, in the opinion of the court, the best interests of the child are served if confrontation or contact between the parents is to be avoided during exchanges of custody or if contact between a parent and a child should be supervised.” The District Court may employ one or more contractors for
Safe Exchange and Supervised Visitation services by a person (1) with whom a child may be left by one parent for a short period while waiting to be picked up by the other parent; or (2) to supervise visits among one or both parents and the child.
Amount: Approximately $835,000 in appropriated funding will be divided among local program operations by 13 providers in the judicial districts (specific allocations for each district are not specified). Program funding is mainly allocated based on achievement of contractual performance targets in the previous year; thus, individual programs may receive more or less funding than in the prior year. For a new program, consideration will be given to an Offeror’s ability to provide services, the term of the contract, and the potential caseload in the area.
Eligibility: An Offeror is defined as any person, firm, corporation, organization, or partnership choosing to submit a proposal.
