This system needs to be highly expandable, upgradable, user-friendly, fully-supported, mobile solution with GIS capability (by school, zip code, proximity to significant points and others) and a central point of data entry for departmental staff and external placement providers (private and public facing solutions).

Additionally, CSD is requesting on-going support, trouble shooting, and training of CSD placement staff. BACKGROUND: DPSS CSD provides a placement service program to identify and match children with safe and least restrictive settings; temporary or permanent homes relative to the specific requirements of the individual child. Riverside County Social Service Workers and staff work on behalf of the children to identify service needs and develop a service plan to meet those needs. This service plan often requires coordination from a wide variety of agencies including FHs, FFAs, FRCs, GHs, Riverside County Behavioral Health Department, volunteers, community-based organizations, and the State of California. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES: The County is releasing this RFI in order to gather information and identify a vendor or vendors to provide solutions in the placement of out-of-home foster youth through a locator and tracking software management system.
