How to become a TEIS Vendor

If you are interested in being considered as a vendor with TEIS, please click here to start the process:

Each application received will be reviewed quarterly by TEIS district office leadership in your agency's area.  Contracts are awarded based on needs in the area and the availability of funds. 

All applications will be considered regardless of service delivery settings, however, TEIS gives preference to agencies willing to provide services in the child’s natural environment.

Vendors are awarded multi-year contracts.  

BDI-3 Assessment

TEIS will be transitioning to using the Battelle Developmental Inventory - Third Edition (BDI-3) for assessments. This assessment tool measures all developmental areas for children birth through 7 years and 11 months. It will be used for eligibility, idea planning and intervention, progress monitoring, and program evaluation.
