East Texas Council of Governments (ETCOG) operates a year-round Senior Nutrition Program, which provides daily nutritious hot lunchtime home-delivered and congregate meals (dining locations for meals, socialization, and public education) to residents who are sixty (60) years of age or older within the 14 counties in the East Texas region. Meals are delivered to homebound clients, by paid staff and volunteers, to clients’ homes. The number of on-site meal locations may be adjusted during the contract; however, it is anticipated that a winning proposer will increase the number of congregate sites available for seniors. The Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Aging’s vision for older people determine the areas. The Older Americans Act embodies the concept that of American value that dignity is inherent to all individuals in our democratic society. Also, the belief that seniors should have the opportunity to participate fully in all aspects of society and community life, be able to maintain their health and independence, and remain in their homes and communities for as long as possible.The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) may elect to award more than one contract per program (congregate, home-delivered), per function (administration, delivery and meal preparation), per county. If bidding on separate functions, co-proposals are strongly encouraged to ensure continuation of services. The AAA does not intend to award a contract entirely by any response made to the proposal. AAA reserves the right to consider proposals for modifications at any time before awarding a contract. Negotiations come with that Proposer whose proposal is deemed to meet best AAA’s specifications and needs. It is the intention of the AAA to award the contract based on a plan that is the most advantageous to the East Texas region.
Thanks, Have a Great weekend!
