Title

Consider recommendations regarding the Conversion of Purchase Contract CN23608 to a Board Contract with Quest Diagnostics for COVID-19 Testing in Santa Barbara County, as follows:

 

a) Approve, ratify, and authorize the Chair to execute an Agreement for Services of Independent Contractor Quest Diagnostics to continue providing COVID-19 test kits and testing for COVID-19 response in the County from April 28, 2020 through December 31, 2021. This Agreement converts a Purchase Contract to a Board Contract, extends the term for an additional six months, and increases funding by $695,000.00 for a revised total amount not to exceed $775,000.00, inclusive of $80,000.00 under Purchase Contract CN23608, but which otherwise cancels, nullifies, and supersedes Purchase Contract CN23608; and

 

b) Determine that the proposed action does not constitute a “Project” within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), pursuant to Section 15378(b)(4) of the CEQA Guidelines, because it consists of the creation of a government funding mechanism or other government fiscal activity, which does not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant impact on the environment.
