Proposed Method of Procurement:  
Description:  The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Corrections’ (DOC) is soliciting bids for facilities to provide reentry services to persons under the supervision of the DOC Bureau of Community Corrections (BCC) and the PA Board of Probation and Parole (PBPP). 
On March 19, 2020, the Governor’s Office issued a General Purchasing Ban to limit spending of goods or services that are not critical to operations.  The issuing agency has determined through its internal approval processes that this solicitation is absolutely critical to operations and does not violate the Governor’s General Purchasing Ban. Additionally, the issuing agency conducted due diligence via positive vendor affirmation that there is sufficient competition due to the prevalence of telework allowing a preponderance of suppliers to have access to respond to the solicitation. The Commonwealth’s electronic bidding systems can be accessed via teleworking by the Commonwealth and suppliers due to the phased reopening of counties across the Commonwealth.
