The Skagit County Clerk is seeking proposals from qualified providers for the provision of an indefinite quantity contract for Debt Collections Services for recovery of monies owed for nonpayment of Legal Financial Obligations
(LFO%s), including but not limited to fines, penalties, fees and restitution in accordance with this scope of work.
This program furthers the department~s mission by soliciting innovations by units of state, local, and tribal government to test strategies to structure criminal justice legal financial obligations
in ways that support, rather than undermine, rehabilitation and successful reintegration of justice-involved individuals into communities.
The Legislature should reconsider levying legal financial obligations
in felony cases without a full understanding of how the debt may affect an individual's attempt to re-enter his/her community.
