In June 2015, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors awarded the ambulance system re-bid and research project to Citygate Associates, LLC of Folsom, California. The project will result in a Request for Proposal (RFP) to re-bid the ambulance Exclusive Operating Area (EOA) contract currently held by Paramedics Plus due to changing health care economics. The intent is to award a new contract at the end of the current agreement in November 2016. The project has three macro phases:

  2. Develop the RFP and bidder evaluation tools
  3. Assist the County with reviewing bidder submittals and finalizing contract language with a preferred vendor

For those who wish to skip the detailed legal language regarding the selection process itself, information on the basic tenets of the EMS system redesign are contained in pages 4 – 10.
