Contracts

The St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services Department provides a broad array of human services to the residents of St. Louis County. These services are provided by professional staff of the department or by the professionals under contract with the department. Contracts are entered into in response to community need and to help the PHHS Department accomplish its core objectives. Requests for contracts typically come from department staff and/or community service providers. The contract application and review process looks at service need, service definitions and standards, licensing and regulatory requirements, staffing, insurance, funding sources, budget considerations, and rate structures. Following administrative review by the PHHS Department, the St. Louis County Board of Commissioners reviews and acts on Contract requests. Contract documents are developed and executed by the Contract Services Unit following Board approval.
