Pursuant to § 15.16(c) of S.L. 2011-145, as amended by § 39 of S.L. 2011-391, and § 18A.4 of S.L. 2013-360, IDS is releasing RFPs seeking contract offers to provide effective and efficient legal services to persons who are determined by the state courts to be entitled to appointed counsel at state expense. 

IDS previously issued a preliminary RFP so that interested parties, including potential contractors, judges, clerks, and district attorneys, would have an opportunity to ask questions or raise issues about how contracts will impact the court system in their district. Answers to the questions received by IDS are available here. Please review these for clarification regarding the RFP(s) posted above.

Sealed qualifying offers in response to an RFP must be submitted on the Offer Forms available above and received by IDS or postmarked by the deadline specified in the applicable RFP. Offers for per session court cases (as specified in the applicable RFP) must be accompanied by one original and separately sealed cost/price offer with a proposed per session price.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the IDS Contract Administrator, Mario T. Richardson.
