"T.1. Out of this appropriation, up to $100,000 the first year from the general fund is provided to the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services  to contract with an independent contractor to develop options for the General Assembly.  Such contract shall  consider the Commonwealth's options of how to operate the Central Virginia Training Center to provide care in the event that sufficient community capacity is not available or is insufficient to meet the care needs of individuals. The options developed shall focus on operating the facility by primarily utilizing the newly renovated buildings and include estimates on operating and capital costs  and other operational changes necessary to operate such facility.  The department, in collaboration with the Department of Planning and Budget (DPB), shall develop the Request for Proposals (RFP), if the RFP process is utilized.  DPB shall review the proposals, along with the department, and no award shall be approved without the concurrence of DPB.   If the RFP process is not used for any reason then DPB staff shall be jointly involved with the department in selecting the contractor and shall grant final approval before awarding the contract.  The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services shall provide all necessary information in a timely manner as requested by the contractor. The contract shall require the work to be completed and the plan submitted by December 1, 2016, to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees.

2. The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services shall make available relevant information as requested by private entities considering possible submission of proposals in accordance with Chapter 22.1 of the Code of Virginia that are related to Central Virginia Training Center."


(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year from the general fund for an independent review to develop options for consideration by the General Assembly of operating the Central Virginia Training Center, if needed, as a smaller facility utilizing the newly renovated buildings.)
