a) Approve and authorize the Chair to execute a multiyear Agreement for Services of Independent Contractor with Barton and Associates, Inc., a Delaware corporation, d.b.a. Barton Medical, Inc. (not a local vendor) for the provision of locum tenens nursing, psychiatry and physician assistant services, for a Maximum Contract Amount of $3,600,000.00, for an annual contract amount of $1,800,000.00 per FY, for the period of July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2024;

 

b) Delegate to the Director of the Department of Behavioral Wellness or designee, the authority to make immaterial changes to the Agreements per Section 26 of the Agreements; and amend Exhibit A-2 (Statement of Work) and Exhibit B-1 (Schedule of Fees) of the Agreement to add positions and/or approve rate changes not to exceed 10% of the rate currently stated in Exhibit B-1, subject to the procedures set forth in Exhibit B, Section 2, all without returning to the Board with a separate amendment, so long as the maximum contract amount is unchanged, subject to the Board’s ability to rescind this delegation at any time; and

 

c) Determine that the above actions are government fiscal activities or funding mechanisms which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment, and are therefore not a project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to section 15378(b)(4) of the CEQA Guidelines.
