§ 7059. Evaluation Criteria.
Authority staff shall evaluate each Application Form based on the following criteria.
(a) How well the Project contributes to both of the following:
(1) Expansion or Improvement of Health Care Access by children eligible for Governmental Health Insurance Programs and indigent, underserved, and uninsured children.
(2) Improvement of Child Health Care or Improvement of Pediatric Patient Outcomes.
(b) How well the Applicant does any or all of the following:
(1) Provides Uncompensated Indigent Care or Undercompensated Care to eligible pediatric patients.
(2) Provides services to Vulnerable Pediatric Populations.
(3) Promotes Pediatric Teaching Programs or Pediatric Research Programs.
(c) How well the Applicant demonstrates Project readiness and feasibility based upon the following:
(1) A project timeline that includes the following:
(A) An expected start date (e.g. construction start date(s) and/ or equipment purchase date(s)).
(B) An expected completion date (e.g. construction completion date(s), acquisition completion dates, and/or equipment installation date(s)).
(C) Problems anticipated in implementing the Project and how problems will be managed to ensure timely completion.
(2) Whether the Project is feasible after a review of all of the following:
(A) For all Projects with the exception of equipment acquisition projects, the Applicant shall submit estimates of Project costs and evidence of property ownership or, if the property is leased to a Children's Hospital or the California nonprofit corporation of which the Children's Hospital is an operating entity, a copy of a lease agreement that satisfies the requirements of Section 7068. The Applicant shall also provide building permits and/or executed construction, architect, design and engineering contracts, if available. An Applicant with a Project that does not yet have an executed contract or building permit but is actively in the process of obtaining one shall provide a detailed statement that explains the status of obtaining the document.
(B) For Projects that include the acquisition of real property, the Applicant shall submit a copy of an executed purchase and sale agreement or status of obtaining one or other evidence of site control to the satisfaction of the Authority. In addition, if the Grant will be used to pay for real property acquisition costs as part of a larger Project, the Applicant shall provide a timeline that specifies when the entire Project will be complete.
(C) For equipment acquisition projects, the Applicant shall submit a specific list of items and cost estimates of equipment or copies of invoices, and if applicable, cost estimates of installation of such equipment.
(D) If funding sources other than the Grant are required to complete the Project, the Applicant shall provide proof of the funding source, including but not limited to, commitment letters, board approved capital campaign plans or any other documentation acceptable to the Authority. Such documentation shall be in accordance with the Project timeline and budget.
(3) Whether implementation of the Project is feasible:
(A) The Applicant shall submit a third-party prepared feasibility study, funding letters or other documentation to demonstrate that the Project will generate sufficient revenues to provide on-going support for new or expanded services and/or research programs. If revenues generated by the Project will be insufficient, the Applicant's revenues shall be sufficient, as determined by Authority staff, to provide on-going support.
(B) When applicable, the Applicant shall submit evidence that it is in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act and all other applicable laws.
(d) The sources and uses of funds:
(1) The Applicant shall detail all sources of funds required to complete the proposed Project. Sources may include, but are not limited to, the total Grant request, borrowed funds, internal assets, and other sources. If the Project, or a portion of the Project, has been or will be submitted to other lenders or grantors for funding, the Applicant shall list them and the status of their consideration.
(2) The Applicant shall detail the uses of all funds required to complete the proposed Project. The total uses shall not exceed the total of all available fund sources. In some instances, funds from sources other than the Grant may be used for portions of a proposed Project that would otherwise be ineligible for this Grant. In those instances, the Applicant shall describe specifically how the Grant funds, as well as other grants, loans, or internal funds, will be used to ensure Grant funds will not subsidize Project elements not eligible for such funds. Where a Project includes elements required to serve non-pediatric populations, the Grant funds shall be limited only to the proportionate cost of providing care to the pediatric population. The Authority shall determine the appropriate manner in which the proportionate share use will be evaluated.
If a proposed Project will benefit both pediatric and non-pediatric patients, the total Grant for that Project cannot exceed the proportionate share use of the pediatric population. For such Projects, the Authority staff shall determine the amount of Grant funds to be awarded based on proportionate use and any other factors related to improvement of pediatric population care.
(e) The financial capacity of the Applicant based upon a review of the Most Recent Audited Financial Statements supplied pursuant to Section 7052, subdivision (a)(2).
