Requests for Proposals (RFPs)

Lanterman Regional Center’s Community Services unit issues a Request for Proposals (RFP) when there is a need to develop specific homes, programs or specialized services for clients. Current RFPs can be downloaded from this page. RFPs may or may not have start-up funds available.

Please read the Using Request for Proposals to Address Client Service Needs policy first, as this process is used by Lanterman Regional Center to obtain formal offers from competing providers and evaluating those proposals against stated requirements, using predetermined evaluation criteria, weights and cost.


Licensed Residential Care Programs for adults with Developmental Disabilities

Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center is seeking proposals to develop two homes for adults who are dually diagnosed with intellectual/developmental and mental health disabilities, and are currently or repeatedly placed in an IMD, psychiatric hospital or other locked facility.

If you are interested in developing one or both of these homes, please complete a proposal in accordance with the submission instructions below. The next three sections of the RFP briefly describe the service need, service specifications and availability of start-up funds.

Proposals must be received at the Regional Center by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. Applications that are submitted after the deadline, are incomplete or do not meet the basic requirements will be disqualified. No proposals will be returned.

This RFP does not commit Lanterman Regional Center to procure or contract for services or supports. Lanterman Regional Center may elect to fund all, part, or none of the project, depending on funding availability as approved by the Department of Developmental Services and the quality of the proposals received.
