Proposals Requested for Juvenile Program
January 23, 2004

During the January Mental Health Committee meeting, Dan Delellis, Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS), discussed a new initiative being undertaken by the office. Act 21 of 2003 establishes a program for civil commitment of juvenile sex offenders who are aging out of juvenile justice programs. OMHSAS seeks to secure a contractor to provide an inpatient program for approximately 30 individuals. The Sexual Responsibility and Treatment Program (SR&TP) will be located in a secure building on the grounds of Torrance State Hospital in Blairsville, PA.

The deadline for proposals is January 26, however at a recent PCPA meeting, Deputy Secretary Joan Erney suggested that providers wishing to receive an extension should contact Amanda Lee at 717-772-7935. The full request for proposals is available at www.dgsapp.state.pa.us/comod/bids/rfp22_03.pdf.
