Page 281, after line 26, insert:

"T.1.  The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services shall request and accept for consideration proposals, in accordance with Chapter 22.1 of the Code of Virginia, from private entities to operate and manage the Central Virginia Training Center with a primary focus on the newer facilities, and other buildings as necessary, in order to continue to serve those residents that choose to stay and receive care at the facility.    In the department's request for proposals, the department shall include all relevant information, including financial information, capital assets, operational details or other information private entities may request to properly develop proposals.  The proposals shall include the leasing of state property and buildings.  All proposals received shall be submitted to the Public-Private Partnership Advisory Commission.

2. The department shall identify any operational, financial and legal impacts associated with the private operation of the Training Center along with the leasing of such property and report such findings to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by September 1, 2016.

U. Any capital funds from bond proceeds for the construction of group homes or intermediate care facilities for the intellectually or developmentally disabled that is planned to transition individuals currently residing in the Central Virginia Training Center shall be suspended until July 1, 2017."


(This amendment requires the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to request proposals related to the operation of the newer buildings at Central Virginia Training Center (CVTC) for the continued care of those residents that choose to remain. CVTC is currently slated to close in 2020, however, significant investments in the facility in recent years, along with a strong interest to stay at CVTC by the majority of residents, necessitates that the Commonwealth explore all additional options for the facility.)
