            Beach Counties. Now the largest family support organization in Florida,
            Family Central has become a model organization, offering specialized
            services and programs that give children a competitive start. Annually,
            Family Central serves nearly 70,000 children and families from all
            socio-economic backgrounds, and thousands of child care professionals

FCI, Banking Services RFP-09-FCI-001                                                6 of 23
                                   SECTION II - SCOPE OF SERVICES

     1. Statement of Work
          Family Central, Inc. requests a banking institution to manage the daily
          banking requirements including the ability for on-line banking services.
          The selection criteria will include the lowest aggregate banking service
          cost, consistent with the ability to provide an appropriate level of service;
          ability to handle electronic banking services such as on-line wire
          transfers, ACH payables; best availability schedules; interest rates, etc.
          The information included in the RFP is an average of activity over the
          previous six month period.      These averages do not guarantee the
          minimum or maximum volumes. The budget for fiscal year 2008-2009 is
          approximately $172 million. The following section describes in greater
          detail the banking requirements and selection process for this RFP.
     2. Services Desired
               a. Account Structure The proposed account structure will consist of a
                  Master Account together with Sub Account(s). Initially there will
                  only be one sub account, however, FCI reserves the right to
                  establish additional sub accounts in the future for the same level
                  of services and pricing if necessary.
               b. Master Account The purpose of this account is to concentrate the
                  cash balances on a daily basis. This account will contain the only
                  cash balance within the entire account structure. It is FCI’s intent
                  to maintain this as an interest bearing account.
                    Deposits to the master account will be retained in the account
                    until the funds become available, at which time they will be
                    considered collected balances. No other accounts will have deposit
                    transactions. The bank will process as current day’s transactions
                    all deposits received by at least 2:00 p.m. If the bank can process
                    as current day’s transactions all deposits received after 2:00 p.m.,
                    please indicate latest processing time in the proposal.
                    Banks agree to credit the master account for all checks in
                    accordance with the bank’s availability schedule. Banks are
                    required to attach a copy of their availability schedule to the bid.
                    Awarded bank agrees to notify FCI, in writing, of any changes to
                    the schedule.
               c. Sub Accounts     The structure of the sub account(s) shall be
                  established as zero balance accounts. Appropriate balances will be
                  transferred from the master account to the sub accounts at the
                  end of the business day, or at the beginning of the next business



FCI, Banking Services RFP-09-FCI-001                                                7 of 23
                    day to cover the amount of checks presented the previous day in
                    each of the accounts. Transfers between the accounts will be
                    charged to FCI only as transfers and not also as items deposited
                    and checks paid.
                    All disbursements will flow through the zero-balance account. All
                    balances will be maintained in the master account. The account
                    will be reimbursed at the close of the business or at the opening of
                    the business day following the day the checks are presented for
                    payment, depending on the bank’s policy. These zero-balance
                    accounts will always have a zero ledger balance at the beginning of
                    each business day.
               d. Wire Transfers FCI intends to consider all wire transfers received
                  by the bank prior to the end of the business day, as “available” by
                  FCI, regardless of the time of actual receipt by the bank. Should
                  the Bank not receive a wire transfer, then the wire transfer will be
                  traced from origin to destination to ascertain the party responsible
                  for delaying the transfer. Adjustments will be made as soon as
                  possible for any lost interest, if necessary. The awarded Bank
                  agrees to execute any wire transfer order within one (1) hour after
                  notification by FCI’s Chief Financial Officer or Designee through
                  the computer terminal, or by telephone, or by FAX.
               e. On-Line Banking Services FCI requires a full array of on-line
                  banking services such as positive pay, ability to view the status of
                  checks, stop-payments, on-line wire transfers, etc. The system
                  should be secure, easy to use and web-enabled.
               f. Monthly Statements Monthly Bank statements for all accounts
                  must be provided to the FCI Chief Financial Officer or Designee
                  with full reconciliation documentation supporting all entries on the
                  statement within five (5) business days after the last calendar day
                  of each month. Copies of cancelled checks should be returned on a

          business with any entity or with an agency or political subdivision of any
          other state or with the United States, including, but not limited to, any
          bid or contract for goods or services to be provided to any public entity or
          an agency or political subdivision of any other state or of the United
          States and involving antitrust, fraud, theft, bribery, collusion,
          racketeering, conspiracy, or material misrepresentation.
     b. I understand that “convicted” or “conviction” as defined in Paragraph
        287.1 33(1)(b), Florida Statutes means a finding of guilt or a conviction of
        a public entity crime, with or without an adjudication of guilt, in any

        non-jury trial, or entry of a plea of guilty or nolo contendere.
     c. I understand that an “affiliate” as defined in Paragraph 287.1C3(a)(a),
        Florida Statutes means:
                    o A predecessor or successor of a person convicted of a public

                    o An entity under the control of any natural person who is active
                      in the management of the entity and who has been convicted of
                      public entity crime. The term “affiliate” includes those officers,
                      directors, executives, partners, shareholders, employees,
                      members, and agents who are active in the management of
                      affiliate.
                         The ownership by one person of shares constituting a
                         controlling interest in another person, or pooling of equipment
                         of income among persons when not for fair market value under
                         an arm’s length agreement, shall be a prima facie case that one
                         person controls another person. A person who knowingly enters
                         into a joint venture with a person who has been convicted of a
                         public entity crime in Florida during the preceding 36 months
                         shall be considered an affiliate.
     d. I understand that a “person” as defined in Paragraph 287.1330) (e),
        Florida Statutes means any natural person or entity organized under the
        laws of any state or of the United States with the legal power to enter into
        a binding contract and which bids or applies to bids on contracts for the
        provision of goods or services let by a public entity, or which otherwise
        transacts or applies to transact business with a public entity. The term
        “person” includes those officers, directors, executives, partners,
        shareholders, employees, members, and agents who are active in
        management of an entity.

                      determined that it was in the public interest to remove the
