REQUEST FOR BIDS FOR IN-HOME AIDE SERVICE

The Chatham County Council on Aging is accepting bids for in-home aide services for older adults in Chatham County for fiscal year beginning July 1, 2019.  The Council is interested in agencies committed to providing quality service and a fair wage for its workers (To help determine its rate, Orange County has referenced a living wage calculator produced by MIT research. For Chatham, see http://livingwage.mit.edu/counties/37037. For example, for a household of 2 adults and 1 child, the living wage was estimated to be $13.56/hour. If an agency applies 60% of its unit rate for home care services to the aide’s wages, its unit rate would be $22.60.) The Council has about 70 clients who receive Level II and III in-home aide services and another 20 who receive caregiver respite. Funding for the program comes from several sources, including the State Home and Community Care Block Grant (HCCBG), local government, other grants, contributions and donations. Businesses submitting bids must have been in operation and complied with all local, state and federal laws for at least three years, and have a working knowledge of State Rule 10A NCAC 13J and the HCCBG standards for in-home aide services covering such areas as aide competency, training and oversight, assessment and service planning, service priorities, and documentation and quality assurance. HCCBG funding requires adherence to the Expanded Home Care Licensure Rules. Businesses must submit with the bid proof of liability and workers compensation insurance, proof of licensing by the NC Division of Health Service Regulation, verification for appropriate criminal background and Nurse Aide certification policies, and certification that there are no overdue tax debts. The specific aide services include personal care, light housekeeping and meal preparation. Closing bid date is May 10, 2019 at 5 pm. For more information, contact Dennis Streets, Director of the Council on Aging at 919-542-4512. Bids must be received at P.O. Box 715, Pittsboro, NC 27312 or the Eastern Chatham Senior Center, 365 Highway 87 N Pittsboro, or via email at wanda.stone@chathamcouncilonaging.org.  Chatham County Council on Aging reserves the right to reject any or all proposals and to waive as an informality any immaterial irregularities or minor errors contained in a proposal.
