Explanation

The Columbus Public Health Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program has a need to provide language interpretation services for persons with limited English proficiency who receive services at Columbus Public Health WIC clinics. Solicitation SA005081 was bid on the City's vendor services website. An evaluation of all bids received was performed and it was determined Global to Local Language Solutions was the lowest, most responsive and responsible bidder. This is the fourth year of a contract with the option to renew and continue the contract for up to five years. The contract period is October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017, for a contract amount not to exceed $32,000.00. The contract compliance with Global to Local Language Solutions is 27-1174151.

Emergency action is requested in order to avoid any delays in providing program services.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) is entirely funded by the Ohio Department of Health. This program does not generate any revenue or require a City match. This ordinance is contingent on the passage of Ordinance No. 2353-2016 that authorizes the acceptance and appropriation of $6,655,579.00 for the FY2017 WIC Grant Program.
