Local Planning and Network Development (LPND) and Contracts

Contracts & LPND

PermiaCare periodically puts out Requests for Information (RFI), Requests for Application (RFA) and Requests for Proposal (RFP). Please contact us at 432-570-3333 for more information.


PermiaCare is required by rules passed by the 80th Texas legislative session to develop a two-year local plan for the development of an external provider network for mental health services. This plan will provide a standardized, transparent process for planning and developing a network of mental health service providers, emphasize a choice of providers, and allow for local control through stakeholder input while requiring the network to be managed by PermiaCare.

In accordance with Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC), §533.0352 (Local Authority Planning for Local Service Area), “each local mental health and mental retardation authority shall develop a local service area plan to maximize the authority’s services by using the best and most cost-effective means of using federal, state, and local resources to meet the needs of the local community according to the relative priority of those needs.”

THSC §533.03521 requires PermiaCare to “develop a local network development plan regarding the configuration and development of the local mental health authority’s provider network. The plan must reflect local needs and priorities and maximize consumer choice and access to qualified service providers.” Questions should be directed to: Megan Newman at PermiaCare; 600 N Grant; Odessa, Texas 79764; 432-333-3265; Fax 432-570-3346;
