RESOLVED, by the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Mateo, State of California, that
WHEREAS, the County and the San Mateo County Community College District entered into Agreement on September 25, 2007, in the amount of $98,946 for the purpose of providing a session of the Gateway Program for the purpose of offering a contextualized basic skills program aimed at preparing Workforce Investment Act participants to satisfy the Math and English prerequisites for the Bio-Manufacturing Certificate Program or other Biotech related degree programs; and
WHEREAS, San Mateo County Community College District is the only college district that offers the Gateway Program and its unique elements, which include the learning community program and a biotech training program designed specifically around the requirements of the Bio-Manufacturing Certificate Program and other biotech programs in the community. These unique elements and the fact that the funding from the Bay Area Workforce Collaborative Grant was specifically issued for the Gateway Program and the Bio-Manufacturing Certificate Program make San Mateo Community College District a sole source provider for these services. The Board of Supervisors is therefore asked to waive the RFP requirement.
