  39. 39. <ul><li>Financial Approach </li></ul><ul><li>Larry Fisher </li></ul>
  40. 40. Financial Approach <ul><li>The State has chosen to utilize a FIXED PRICE APPROACH to the administrative services included in the DPS RFP. </li></ul>
  41. 41. Financial Approach <ul><li>Documentation must support and differentiate between functional operational costs for services provided by the Vendor for any of the programs supported by the contract resulting from the RFP. </li></ul>
  42. 42. Financial Approach <ul><li>The Vendor must provide monthly financial statements, including, but not limited to an income statement, depicting the Vendor’s operation under the resulting contract no later than the twentieth calendar day following the end of the previous month. </li></ul><ul><li>Costs for administrative services provided by the Vendor for the Document Processing Services RFP will be based on a fixed fee plus variable fee formulas. </li></ul><ul><li>The State anticipates that no more than 40% of the administrative fees for the Document Processing Services will be paid on a fixed fee basis and a minimum of 60% of the administrative fees for the Document Processing Services will be paid utilizing variable fees. </li></ul>
  43. 43. Financial Approach <ul><li>Transition costs to meet the requirements of the RFP will be paid on a fixed fee basis. Transition costs in excess of the final fixed price amount included in the contract resulting from this RFP will not be paid by the State. </li></ul><ul><li>Separate fixed and variable administrative fees will be proposed for the first 12 –month operational period of a resulting contract. For subsequent contract years (12-month operational periods), the fixed and variable administrative fees will be determined by the application of a fixed annual inflator proposed by a Vendor and subject to approval and acceptance by HHSC. </li></ul>
  44. 44. Financial Approach <ul><li>The Document Processing Services RFP includes variable administrative fees based on the following activities: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of “Eligibility Support Services Inbound Documents” processed correctly and appropriately </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of “CHIP / CHIP Perinate Inbound Documents” processed correctly and appropriately </li></ul></ul>
  45. 45. Financial Approach <ul><li>The “Inbound Documents” are measured by counting the document sets / envelopes received as opposed to the number of pages / images and / or documents contained in a single client submission. </li></ul><ul><li>The Document Processing Services variable payments will be based on the number of activities listed above that are appropriate for the respective contract and are completed and processed correctly. Any activity or multiple activities that must be reprocessed due to Vendor error(s) will not be considered an appropriate activity or activities for payment of additional variable payment(s). </li></ul>
  46. 46. Financial Approach <ul><li>Ownership of all nonexpendable capital items FUNDED by the contract will pass to the State at the expiration of the contract. </li></ul><ul><li>Actual expenditures for Pass-Through Items made on the State’s behalf will be paid without allocation of any indirect charges (general & administrative expenses, overhead, etc.) or profit. </li></ul><ul><li>A complete listing of expenditures designated as Pass-Through Items are listed in Section of the RFP. </li></ul>
  47. 47. Financial Approach <ul><li>Administrative fees paid to the Vendor during each Operational Contract Year will consist of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fixed Administrative Fees </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Variable Administrative Fees </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Administrative Fees for the Additional Periodic Activities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Administrative Fees for Additional Recurring Activities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The sum of the four Fee components will be referred to as the “Fee Ceiling” . </li></ul>
  48. 48. Financial Approach <ul><li>The total maximum cost of the Services and Deliverables supplied by the Vendor to HHSC during each Operational Contract Year will not exceed the lesser of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(a) the Vendor’s Fees (Fee Ceiling) or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(b) the sum of the Allowable Costs incurred by the Vendor plus the allowable administrative service fee during the subject Operational Contract Year. </li></ul></ul>
  49. 49. <ul><li>Pricing Overview </li></ul>
  50. 50.

  52. 52. Pricing Overview <ul><li>Transition Pricing Schedules: </li></ul><ul><li>The potential Vendor’s transitional cost proposal sheets for the Document Processing RFP must identify the proposed “Key Milestones” the Vendor will accomplish during the Transitional period (Appendix A-1). </li></ul><ul><li>The State is requesting each prospective Vendor to identify the “Key Milestones” the Vendor believes would be pertinent and appropriate as a Key Milestone during the Transition period. </li></ul><ul><li>The State reserves the option to add, delete and/or modify Key Milestones included in the Vendor’s transitional cost proposal sheets. </li></ul>
  53. 53. Pricing Overview <ul><li>The potential Vendor’s operational cost proposal sheets (Appendix A-2) for the Document Processing Services operational component must be delineated by the primary business functions (functional areas) documented in the RFP. </li></ul>

  57. 57. Pricing Overview <ul><li>The cost proposal should include any business, economic, legal, programmatic, or practical assumptions that underlie the Cost Proposal. HHSC reserves the right to accept or reject any assumptions. </li></ul>
