On June 19, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approved the Master Contract for CBE No. 604895-18 in the amount of $870,000 annually for Forensic Pathology Services from providers qualified by Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner.

The following are the pertinent provisions of the Contracts:
                     The term of the Contract was from date of contract through June 30, 2019 and included the option to                      renew for 4, one-year periods. There are 2 renewal options remaining.
                     Included the option to increase the award amount up to 20% based on possible increased user                      requirements for the renewal terms and approved budget appropriations.
                     Included the County’s option to terminate for cause, convenience or default and suspend the Contract                      with advanced written notice.

Approval of Amendment No. 1 will increase the daily rate for Forensic Pathology Services from $1,000 to $2,000 in order to align with current market pricing and increase the success in recruitment of service providers. The attached Amendment No. 1 document details the modifications and costs involved.
