Becoming a Service Provider
To become a Service Provider with Inland Regional Center applicants must complete a thorough application and screening process called Vendorization. The Vendorization process allows IRC to select Service Providers that comply with all licensing and Title 17 regulations, as well as meeting IRC standards and requirements. IRC can only vendor Service Providers within IRC’s catchment area. During the Vendorization process, prospective Service Providers will be required to submit a valid business license with an address in either Riverside or San Bernardino county.
To initiate the process of becoming an IRC Service Provider, (NEW except for Residential Facilities) an applicant will submit a letter of intent to IRC’s Resource Development and Transportation Unit (RDTU). The letter should give a brief overview of the type of service the applicant would like to provide, the type of Clients they would like to work with, and the geographic location of their potential program/service. If the applicant knows the IRC service code for the type of service they are interested in providing, they should also include that.
After the RDTU Program Manager has reviewed the letter of intent they will assign a RDTU Specialist to assist the applicant in the program design review process. The RDTU Specialist will provide the applicant a checklist for what is required in their Program Design. A Program Design is a detailed business plan and a comprehensive report of precisely how a Service Provider will deliver services to IRC Clients. Program Designs include information about the program’s mission and service philosophies, how the business will be run, staffing ratios, crisis intervention plans, organizational charts, licensing information, staff credentials, and much more. Program Design requirements vary based on the type of service being provided, in accordance with Title 17 and IRC best practices.
Once an applicant has completed the Resource Development they will be referred to IRC’s Vendorization to submit all necessary documentation. If approved, the Service Provider, will be provided a Vendor number and service code. Becoming an IRC Service Provider does not guarantee referrals. All services funded by IRC must be linked to an outcome in the Client’s Individual Program Plan. Service Providers should not initiate services before they are authorized by IRC.
Residential Facility and Day Service Providers
Those interested in opening a residential facility for IRC Clients must attend a New Residential Services Provider Orientation (NRSPO). These Orientations are held twice a year and are an integral part of the Vendorization process for Residential Service Providers. Read more in about these Orientations in the NRSPO Frequently Asked Questions.
Note: New Residential Services Provider Orientation must be completed before submitting a letter of intent.
NRSPO - Qualifications | Orientation Update
Day Service Providers
Those interested in starting a Day Service are encouraged to attend our Day Services Orientation (DSO). The orientation gives an overview of the different types of day services IRC vendors, as well as the process of becoming a day service provider. The orientation is held twice a year. For the next orientation, please check our Day Services Orientation Update.
