Contract development and monitoring process
When a contract has been awarded or new funding allocated, the agency will be contacted by a King County contract monitor/manager who will assist with each step of the process.
Contract development steps:
Contract monitoring steps:
- Drafting a description of the specific services to be provided (called a work statement or program exhibit), program description, how payment will be made, and any reports required for submittal.
- Reviewing the standard contract boilerplates, completing any required forms, providing needed insurance certificates and endorsements, and having the appropriate authorized person sign the forms and the contract document.
- Contracts with the Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division (MHCADSD) may also require a special credentialing process to be completed prior to approval of any contracts.
- The contract monitor/manager is the person responsible for monitoring compliance with the contract terms, and reviewing and approving all invoices submitted by the provider.
- The monitor/manager may also conduct a site visit during the term of the contract to review compliance with policies and the quality of work completed under the terms of the contract.
