REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFQ/RFP) ALTERNATIVES TO INCARCERATION MASTER PLAN
The Burns Paiute Tribe is seeking consultant services to develop an Alternative to Incarceration Master Plan. This project was awarded under the U.S. Department of Justice and is subject to federal procurement limits and regulations. The purpose of this Request for Qualifications is to receive proposals from criminal justice consulting firms interested in providing a full scope of services that result in a Comprehensive Master Plan for the Community to utilize in pursuing detention alternative placements for adult offenders and related funding alternatives.
The Burns Paiute Tribe Reservation is located in Burns, Harney County, Oregon. The Burns Paiute Tribe has approximately 391 enrolled members with about 195 living on the reservation. The land base is comprised of 943 acres of Trust lands. Harney County is comprised of over 10,000 square miles (the size of nine (9) Rhode Islands) and has a population of less than 7,500 people. Harney County is deemed “profoundly rural” and “isolated” in government reporting.
The Tribe desires to develop an Alternative to Incarceration Master Plan to determine current and future adult and juvenile capacity requirements and costs associated with the potential construction of new alternatives to incarceration facility and related programs. The Tribe does not currently operate an adult correctional facility on the Reservation. Current facilities are located in an adjacent Harney County and will continue to be utilized for offenders who are too troublesome for placement in a less secure facility. These county jail placements do provide some challenges in terms of bed-space and transportation requirements, offender programming and expense to the Tribe. The RFQ on Comprehensive Master Planning process will consist of the following phases that must be described in your proposed delivery of services:
1. Justice System Needs Assessment
2. Community Profile
3. Justice System Resources
4. Community Resources
5. Collect and Analyze Justice System Data
6. Offender Profiles
7. Population projections/forecasts
8. Recommended Alternatives to Incarceration Programs and the potential impact on the justice system.
9. Determine space needs, facility footprint, classification and operational requirements
10. Develop cost estimates for A&E, Construction, Staffing, Operations, FF&E and Transition and Activation.
11. Develop a “phased” plan for the completion of the Master Plan and prepare regular status reports and updates for the use of the Planning Team and the Tribal Council
12. Work collaboratively with the Planning Team, recognizing that this team represents the “customer” in all planning activities.
13. Submit a written Comprehensive Master Plan that incorporates all of the above.

ESA Sorority would like to extend a thank you to the community for their support of our most recent fundraiser, the Easter Basket. The money from this project, as well as our other projects this year, will go to Slater Books and Families in Need.
The winner of the Easter Basket was Karen Jenkins who is connected to Children’s Services. She was very excited to win the basket and wants to share it with the children.
Recently at our ESA State Convention in Eugene, we recognized Joyce Greer for her 45 years of service with our chapter. She is a soft-hearted person who loves ranching and being a rancher’s wife. We are very proud to have her as a member.
We look forward to many years of being of service to our community. We count our blessings for the wonderful county we live in.
