RFQ for Forensic Psychological and/or Psychiatric Evaluators

Families involved in dependency, delinquency and custody cases often are facing challenging life situations. Being the subject of a forensic evaluation adds stress during this difficult time. Allegheny County, on behalf of its Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Fifth Judicial District of Allegheny County, Family Division (Children’s Court, Adult Division and/or Juvenile Probation), desires high quality forensic evaluations that are thorough, respectful to families, culturally sensitive and ethically sound so that court proceedings may be fair, informed and in the best interest of the children and families involved. To that end, DHS and the Court are seeking licensed and credentialed qualified applicants to conduct forensic psychological and/or psychiatric evaluations of children and families involved in dependency, delinquency and custody proceedings in Allegheny County.

This RFQ is an ongoing solicitation and applications will be reviewed biannually, with deadlines for review on the first business day of March and September each year. Applicants may be individuals or a group practice with multiple practitioners. Qualified Applicants will be eligible to be selected to conduct forensic evaluations on an as-needed basis.
