From the Desk of Cedric Hernandez, State Program Manager

We recently completed the first of three EIV training sessions scheduled throughout the state and will be in Jacksonville and the Ft. Lauderdale area in the coming months. Because of the overwhelming response to these trainings; we have had to limit registrations. For those who were unable to attend the training, notes are posted to our website. We appreciate the positive response and anticipate providing additional training opportunities in the future.


It was a pleasure meeting and speaking to those of you who attended the training in Tampa.

Overall, things continue to go well and we remain committed to providing superior service to you as your Contract Administrator. As for the PBCA Rebid, on February 19, 2013, the PBCA NOFA process was contested in the Court of Federal Claims. All sides presented their arguments and a decision will be made by the presiding Judge in the near future. NTHDC is operating under the current extension which extends the PBCA contract through June 30, 2013. As always, we will ensure you are informed of any future developments.

NTHDC is now in its 9th year of operations as the PBCA for the State of Florida. The contract officially started on December 1, 2004. Don Shea, Director and Contract Administrator, led NTHDC through the initial start-up phase of the contract and then the formal beginning of duties in December 2004. We are thankful to continue to serve as your PBCA and appreciate Don and his efforts to ensure the on-going success of NTHDC. We are confident NTHDC, under Don’s leadership, will continue to serve you as the Florida PBCA for many years to come.
