Contract Services Branch

The Contract Services Branch (CSB)* was established to serve as an internal consulting and advisory group within the Department of Health Care Services to perform major procurements conducted by the Medi-Cal program.  The goal of the CSB 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.
*The CSB was formerly known as the Office of Medi-Cal Procurement (OMCP).

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.  CSB will be using this system for many future RFP/IFB releases that may no longer appear on this site.
