Mass Vaccination Planning, Logistical Operations & Quality Improvement Services RFP

Due to changed monkeypox response needs and availability of funding, IDPH has decided to cancel this Request for Proposal. We appreciate the time and effort by organizations who placed a bid, however, IDPH has decided not to move forward with this procurement. Check this website for possible future procurement requests related to Gov. JB Pritzker’s monkeypox emergency declaration.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is seeking a vendor to assist with planning, logistics, communications, and project management services for Statewide Monkeypox Virus (MPV) response, including support with the distribution of vaccines and antiviral treatments. The provision of safe and effective treatment options to State residents is a critical component of IDPH’s strategy to reduce MPV related illness.

Due to the numerous components that are needed to ensure a comprehensive and robust response is mounted and maintained to address MPV, the provision of Incident Command System (ICS) personnel and incident management tools are essential. Public health emergencies are impacting the state concurrently (COVID-19 and MPV). Therefore, staff augmentation for necessary tasks to manage multiple emergencies is needed by IDPH to support the ICS structure within the Public Health Emergency Operations Center (PHEOC) activated for MPV response.

Throughout the course of this proposed contract, the selected vendor must remain nimble and responsive, and be able to adjust management activities, plans and strategies, as needed. The successful vendor’s plans should be based on current known conditions and be scalable given the continued evolution of the MPV outbreak. Respondents should complete budget template (see Attachment A) and submit as a separate document from the proposal response.
