Award of Invitation for Bids Y9-184-LC, Hospitalist Group
Services for Corrections Health Services Division
Approval to award Invitation for Bids Y9-184-LC, Hospitalist Group Services for
Corrections Health Services Division, to the only responsive and responsible bidder,
David Mazer, M.D. PA, for a 1-year term contract with two additional 1-year renewals in
the estimated annual contract amount of $131,250. This is an estimated contract amount
and the annual usage is uncertain. However, the Corrections Health Services Division
anticipates the entire estimated contract amount will be ordered on an annual basis.
Further request authority for the Purchasing and Contracts Division to renew the contract
for two additional 1-year periods. The Corrections Health Services Division concurs
with this request.
The hospitalist's primary role will be to manage the medical care of all hospitalized
inmates, provide greater continuity of care and streamline operations of hospitalization.
Services will be provided on a 24-hour, 7-day-per-week basis.
One bid was received in response to this Invitation for Bids. Dr. Mazer has provided
these services satisfactorily for the past two contract terms (six years). Two other
potential bidders (Darin Wolfe, M.D. and Harbinder Ghuldu, M.D.) were queried regarding
their failure to compete for award of this contract. Both indicated that they were not
interested. Dr. Mazer works closely with medical providers and the case manager to
ensure that the inmates receive the appropriate care. The bid is considered reasonable
because it is consistent with current pricing.
