Drug Testing Supplies:
Services are for individuals who are suspected by DCS workers and Probation Officers of drug
and/or alcohol use and require immediate testing.
Under this RFP the types of drug screens required, but are not limited to, saliva/oral fluid, hair
follicle, urine, blood and alcohol tests.
The drugs to be tested includes Drugs of Abuse (illegal drugs), Therapeutic drugs (Prescription
Drug-Painkillers, Mental Health Meds, etc.), and Designer drugs (i.e. Synthetic Marijuana).
DCS anticipates purchasing bulk saliva/oral fluid tests for administration by DCS staff. Oral/Saliva
screens and all other screens may be administered by the vendor or lab staff.
This method of screening is to aid the DCS in determining toxicity of clients during initial
assessment or during on-going cases.
Random screens are designed for individuals who may or may not meet the criteria for substance
abuse and may or may not actively participate in drug treatment services. The design of this process
is for individuals who will require continual monitoring of substance use and/or abuse during the
time of their DCS case.
The services will be a randomization in which referred clients will be screened a maximum of two
(2) screens per week.
All sample collection drug screens will be initially monitored sample collection screens. If a donor
submits a sample that is positive, or has been determined to be adulterated or substituted with no
legitimate medical explanation, subsequent screens are to be observed. If observed, the vendor shall
also ensure the observer’s gender must be the same as the donor’s gender, which is determined by
the donor’s gender identity, with no exception this requirement.
The vendor will be expected to provide reports that state the minimum level necessary to detect the
presence of each substance, the level of substance detected, and the chain of custody
