2021 Vendor Application Process

The Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) contracts with 25 Aging Services Access Points (ASAPs) to administer programs for persons 60 years of age and over.  The Elder Care Network Southeast (ECNS) is made up of six ASAPs that administer the homecare programs in the Southeast region of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Each ASAP in the ECNS determines the client’s eligibility for services and contracts directly with the provider agency.

To apply to be a HESSCO provider, please submit email all required responses and materials, in a zipped folder, to TLavallee@hessco.org by April 30, 2021 at 5:00 pm.  To apply to be another ASAP provider, contact that ASAP directly.

This RFP does not commit any individual ASAP to award a contract or to pay for costs associated with the preparation of this proposal.  Each ASAP negotiates its own rates and reserves the right to accept or reject any proposal.

Successful proposals will result in contracts effective October 1, 2021.  Each ASAP will make an individual determination to award a one, two, or maximum of three year contract.

Women, minority-owned, and small businesses are encouraged to apply.

HESSCO is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

For questions about applying to HESSCO, email TLavallee@hessco.org.
