Trial Court Requests Proposals for Economic Consultant to Assist Review of Child Support Guidelines
The Trial Court recently launched its federally mandated review of the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines, which must be conducted at least once every four years. Public events to allow discussion of the Guidelines will be held across the state and public comments must be submitted by the end of September.
As part of this effort, the Administrative Office of the Massachusetts Trial Court (AOTC) has issued a Request for Proposal for a consultant knowledgeable in population and family economics, data analysis, and policy formulation to assist the Trial Court. The consultant will gather information and provide an analysis of cost of living data for Massachusetts, focusing on data relative to raising a child in Massachusetts.
The RFP may be accessed on Comm-PASS (Commonwealth Procurement and Solicitation System), the Commonwealth's online procurement site, which is available at www.comm-pass.com. Vendors should select the Solicitation Search link and enter Document Number MTC-2012-003.
Bids must be received by Wednesday, May 30th, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. To help the AOTC adhere to its RFP timetable, vendors are encouraged to submit a Notice of Intent to Respond, as specified in the RFP. Final vendor selection is expected by June 22, 2012.
Written comments on the Child Support Guidelines can be submitted to the Guidelines Task Force at the Administrative Office of the Trial Court, Two Center Plaza, S-540, Boston, MA 02108, or via email to email@example.com.
