A summary of procurements GovWin expects to be released within the 2019 and 2020 calendar years in New York, the second highest spending state.

This article is a summary highlighting New York’s upcoming SLED health and human services procurements within the 2019 and 2020 calendar years. It will be the first of an ongoing series where GovWin highlights upcoming opportunities in the ten states with the highest expenditures for fiscal year 2020. New York is projected to spend over $209 billion in FY 2020, making it the second highest spending state in the nation. Stay tuned for future installments.


Medicaid Administrative Services (MAS): The Department of Health may have a requirement for administrative services for their Medicaid enterprise. At this time the incumbent MMIS fiscal agent contract with General Dynamics Corporation is anticipated to expire in November 2019. The state is currently unable to communicate their modular plans with Deltek at this time, but we anticipate potential procurement activity in Q3 2019.

Enrollment Broker Services: Another opportunity that we anticipate being procured in 2019 is Enrollment Broker Services for Medicaid programs. Brokers are expected to educate potential enrollees about managed care concepts, their enrollment options, and provide assistance with health plan selections. Maximus Inc. is the current vendor for this $597 million contract until September 2019. We expect an RFP release in Q3 2019.

Medicaid Third Party Liability Match and Recovery Services: Deltek was able to confirm with the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General that Third Party Liability (TPL) services will likely be reprocured. The Office confirmed they begin internal discussions on obtaining TPL two to three years before the incumbent contract expires. The incumbent $108 million contract with Health Management Systems, Inc. is set to expire on April 2021. Deltek estimates this RFP to be released in Q2 2020.

Health Information Technology

All Payer Claims Database Data Warehouse and Analytic Solution (APCD): Deltek anticipates the Department of Health will release a rebid for their APCD Data Warehouse and Analytic Solution. Optum Government Solutions is the incumbent vendor of this $66 million dollar contract until November 2020. Deltek expects an RFP release in Q1 2020.

Electronic Health Records (EHR) for the Department of Corrections: The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision may be interested in implementing an EHR for their inmate population. They are looking to replace their legacy electronic medical record systems with a single comprehensive, integrated Electronic Health Record system. Deltek anticipates an RFP release in Q4 2019.

Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT)

Northeast Coalition of States Electronic Benefit Transfer (NCS EBT): New York State is spearheading the Northeast Coalition of States’ consortium procurement which also includes Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire for SNAP, TANF, and HEAP EBT services. Conduent is the incumbent vendor of this $79 million until December 2020. We expect the RFP to be released in Q1 2020.

Women Infant and Children Electronic Benefit Transfer (WIC EBT): The Department of Health Bureau of Supplemental Food Program may have a continued need for the maintenance and operations of their EBT system for the WIC program. Conduent State & Local Solutions is the incumbent vendor for this $8 million contract. Their contract is expected to expire in December 2020. Deltek expects a procurement in Q1 2020.

Child Care

Child Care Time and Attendance Payment System: The Office of Children and Family Services confirmed there will be a rebid for the maintenance and operations of their automated statewide child care time and attendance payment system later this year. The purpose of the system is to improve the accuracy of child care subsidy payments by tracking the attendance of subsidized children at child care programs and calculate payments for those services. The incumbent contract with Controltec Inc. is set to expire in October 2020. Deltek expects the RFP to be released in Q3 2019.
