Basics – Why renew contracts? HIVCS requests renewal documents to: –Ensure scope of service reflects current practices and requirements –Receive updated and approved appendices, service target grids, service level rate analysis tool (SLRAT) –Obtain required administrative documents
The Renewal Package - Content Award letter period/MRA Instruction document (includes a discussion of all amendments and appendices) Amendment to Schedule A: Scope of Services –Generally, if your program has additional changes, a description of each change is to be indicated in the Amendment to Schedule A: Scope of Services. If there are no changes, check the box ‘NO” and each of above sections will remain in your contract as last year. If changes have occurred, check the ‘YES’ box, and list the section/question of the Scope of Services that is being revised and provide a description of the changes
Renewal Package-Content, cont’d Renewal Documents – Appendices B,A,C,D This workbook contains various worksheets. These documents must be completed by providing updated information about your program.

The format of the documents should not be changed or altered. Review the forms and ensure the information contained therein is applicable to this year. If there have been any changes to your program from last year, describe the changes in detail in the Amendment to Schedule A: Scope of Services. To check a box, double left-click on the box and select “check” then OK. Boxes in Schedule A that are already checked are required and a response is necessary.
