The Escambia County Jail has experienced an increase in their average daily population over the course of the last several months. This unanticipated increase in the inmate population has led to an increase in the monthly pharmaceutical expenditure. During fiscal year 2015 the average number of monthly prescriptions filled was 2,267. The Escambia County Jail is currently averaging 2,466 prescriptions per month. Due to the increase in inmate population which resulted in the rise of monthly prescriptions, the additional funding is necessary to continue to pay the vendor through the end of fiscal year 2016.
Funding will be available in General Fund 001, Inmate Medical Cost Center 290402; Object Code 55201.
POLICY/REQUIREMENT FOR BOARD ACTION:
This recommendation is in compliance with the provisions of the Code of Ordinances of Escambia County, Florida, Chapter 46, Finance, Article II, Purchase and Contracts.
Upon approval of this recommendation, a change order will be submitted to the Office of Purchasing for processing.
