Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution accepts the recommendations resulting from the Community Development Division’s (CDD) Early Childhood Funding Request for Proposals (RFP) process and authorizes CDD to enter into agreements to support and expand early childhood programming and services. The purchase of service contracts proposed by this resolution will be effective on January 1, 2020 and is contingent upon the Common Council authorizing sufficient funding in the City’s 2020 Operating Budget. Current contracts for Early Childcare services expire on December 31, 2019.

A review panel reviewed twelve proposals and finalized recommendations to fund purchase of service contracts totaling $535,000. This level of funding is currently authorized within the City’s 2019 Adopted Budget and is comprised of $469,736 from current early childhood Purchase of Service Contracts and $65,264 to be reallocated from Child Care Assistance funding. The contracts authorized under this resolution are anticipated to continue for 3-5 years, contingent upon funding availability and satisfactory contractor performance.
