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.

Self Determination Program Request for Proposal

The Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center Self Determination Local Advisory Committee is requesting proposals for services provided by an individual or organization to participants interested in the Self-Determination Program (SDP) in understanding the Self-Determination Program. There will be a focus on supporting participants and families with complex needs, specifically to individuals that are bilingual (e.g., Spanish, Korean and Armenian). Supports will include identifying Independent Facilitators (IF’s) and Financial Management Services (FMS’), and supporting and encouraging them to move forward in the process. The individual/organization who provides these services cannot also be providing other services to the same Lanterman Self-Determination Program participants. If interested, see instructions on the official request for proposal (RFP) below.
