​​​​​​​​​​​​Contracts Division

The Contracts Division (CD)* was established to serve as an internal consulting and advisory group within the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to perform major procurements conducted by the Medi-Cal program. The goal of the CD is to ensure that Medi-Cal contracting and procurement procedures are of the highest integrity, and that the competitive bidding processes are employed to the maximum extent required by law.

 *CD was previously known as Contract Services Branch (CSB).

Important Message Regarding CAL eProcure​ / Fi$Cal: 

The California State Contracts Register (CSCR) has moved to the Cal eProcure / Fi$Cal website. It is highly recommended that entities who wish to contract with the State of California complete registration for the Cal eProcure/Fi​$Cal system in order to be notified of contracting opportunities, and ultimately be compensated for contractual work through the Fi$Cal payment system as it continues to be implemented. CD will be using this system for many future RFP/IFB releases that may no longer appear on this site.

Mission

To ensure contracts and procurements are legally compliant by providing high-quality services to the Department of Health Care Services programs and external stakeholders.

Vision

To be recognized as state contracting and procurement experts, and to be a collaborative partner to all DHCS programs in their effort to provide high-quality healthcare to all Californians.
