SUBMITTED BY: Margaret Mims, Sheriff

SUBJECT: Second Amendment to Agreement with Central Valley Toxicology, Inc.

RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):
TITLE
Approve and authorize Chairman to execute a Second Amendment to Agreement No. 16-286 with Central Valley Toxicology, Inc. for laboratory testing services, effective upon execution with no change in the term to June 30, 2021, increasing the annual maximum by $120,000, to $212,000 per year for the Sheriff-Coroner-Public Administrator costs, increasing the total annual maximum to $270,000 per year for the Sheriff-Coroner-Public Administrator and District Attorney combined for the current and remaining year of the agreement, with an increase in the total maximum to $920,000.
REPORT
There is no increase in Net County Cost associated with the recommended action. Approval of the recommended increase to $212,000 for the Sheriff's Office's (Sheriff) portion of the agreement maximum for the current and optional remaining year of the agreement, will allow the Sheriff to send current specimens for laboratory testing. This agreement is for the Sheriff, which includes the Coroner's Office and Forensic Lab, and the District Attorney (DA), but the DA is not requesting changes to their portion of the agreement maximum. This item is countywide.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION(S):

If the recommended action is not approved, the Sheriff's current specimens will wait to be tested, which will eventually prolong incoming specimens from being tested as well. With the Sheriff's caseload increasing every year, the amount originally requested is not enough to cover the total amount of specimens.

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no increase in Net County Cost associated with the recommended action. The current annual maximum for the Sheriff's portion of the agreement is $92,000; the requested increase of $120,000, for a total of $212,000 will be absorbed within the Sheriff-Coroner-Public Administrator's 3111 FY 2019-2...
