 SECTION M.3 - B. (5)(d) - EVALUATION CRITERIA- INDIVIDUAL STAFF EXPERIENCE is 
 amended to delete the last sentence in the paragraph "A resume focusing on

 each professional person assigned to the project."

 What do you mean by "handling Job Corps' difficult medical and mental health 
 cases and student deaths?" What type of assistance are you requesting in A1 & 2?

 ANSWER  -  The Health Consultants, when the need arises, would provide technical 
 assistance to the centers.  In the case of student deaths, they would provide 
 assistance in assuring that the all required procedures were followed by the

identifying community resources that may help with crisis intervention. Also, the 
health consultants may be called upon to provide technical assistance, when a 
student becomes seriously or critically ill or injured.

 they are   responsible for providing logistical support.
