Professional Services Agreement for Forensic Phlebotomy Services
Approve the Professional Services Agreement with California Forensic Phlebotomy, Inc. to provide as-needed Forensic Phlebotomy Services in an amount not to exceed $25,000 per year; and Authorize the City Manager to exercise up to four optional one-year extensions.
The Police Department requires forensic phlebotomy laboratory services to draw blood samples, conduct tests, and provide reports for investigative purposes. These services include taking blood samples within 45 minutes of a request, providing the medical supplies and equipment necessary to conduct required tests, refrigerating and depositing samples in a refrigerated blood locker, providing transportation, appearing in court and other locations to discuss or testify on the collected samples, and providing related reports and documentation. For the past 25 years, Brea Police Services has utilized California Forensic Phlebotomy (CFP) to provide these services. CFP has performed well, been responsive to requests, and been thorough in its analysis and reporting.
The Finance Committee reviewed this item at its February 14, 2023 meeting and recommended for approval.
Since CFP has the knowledge and expertise; can provide the full scope of services; has performed those services well; and their price is competitive, fair, and reasonable, the Police Department recommends continuing to utilize CFP for these vital services. The Fiscal Year 2022-23 budget has sufficient funding available in the Police Department's DUI Materials and Supplies account (110-21-2131-4385).
