The Tutwiler Clinic will contract with the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, Clarksdale, Mississippi, which will be taking over the clinic, providers, and staff of Deporres Delta Ministries, and continue providing medical and HIV care in Marks, Mississippi. The Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center is the only available provider of quality HIV services, and it has the resources the Tutwiler Clinic needs in order to provide quality HIV care. This is a temporary replacement award, as the previous grant recipient serving this population notified the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) that it could not continue providing services. HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau identified the Tutwiler Clinic as the best qualified entity for this temporary grant. The Tutwiler Clinic, contracting with the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, can ensure comprehensive services are provided including primary medical care including antiretroviral therapies, prevention education and medication adherence teaching, mental health referrals, substance abuse, and dental services, as well as on-site medical HIV case management services. The additional funding will provide support to retain the targeted population in care, and the Tutwiler Clinic, with the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, will be able to provide critical services, with the least amount of disruption to the service population while the service area is re-competed. This non-competitive one-time program expansion supplement award will cover the time period from July 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.

Justification for the Exception to Competition

    Critical funding for HIV medical care and treatment services to 
clients in the Delta area of Mississippi will be continued through a 
non-competitive one-time program expansion supplement award to the 
Tutwiler Clinic, because it has the fiscal and administrative 
infrastructure to administer the Part C Grant. The Tutwiler Clinic will 
contract with the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, 
Clarksdale, Mississippi, which will be taking over the clinic, 
providers, and staff of Deporres Delta Ministries, and continue 
providing medical and HIV care in Marks, Mississippi. The Northwest 
Mississippi Regional Medical Center is the only available provider of 
quality HIV services, and it has the resources the Tutwiler Clinic 
needs in order to provide quality HIV care. This is a temporary 
replacement award, as the previous grant recipient serving this 
population notified the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA) that it could not continue providing services. HRSA's HIV/AIDS 
Bureau identified the Tutwiler Clinic as the best qualified entity for 
this temporary grant. The Tutwiler Clinic, contracting with the 
Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, can ensure comprehensive 
services are provided including primary medical care including 
antiretroviral therapies, prevention education and medication adherence 
teaching, mental health referrals, substance abuse, and dental 
services, as well as on-site medical HIV case management services. The 
additional funding will provide support to retain the targeted 
population in care, and the Tutwiler Clinic, with the Northwest 
Mississippi Regional Medical Center, will be able to provide critical 
services, with the least amount of disruption to the service population 
while the service area is re-competed.
    This non-competitive one-time program expansion supplement award 
will cover the time period from July 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011. 
This service area will be included in the upcoming competition for the 
Part C HIV Early Intervention Services for project periods starting 
January 1, 2012.
