Explanation
Need: The Civil Service Commission needs to enter into a contract with the Ohio State University for pre-employment physicals and cardiovascular stress testing of public safety recruits for upcoming Police and Fire Academy classes.

Bid Information: In 2016, the City of Columbus Civil Service Commission published a Request for Proposals (RFP03283) for these services and accepted proposals through December 21, 2016. Two proposals were submitted by the deadline. An evaluation committee reviewed these proposals in accordance with the criteria set forth in the RFP. The selected proposal offered the lowest cost for the services as well as qualified physicians with extensive experience in occupational medicine. Therefore, the Commission seeks to award the contract to The Ohio State University.

Emergency Designation: Emergency legislation is requested as the current contract expires on February 28, 2017 and to allow sufficient time for the City to schedule medical exams for police and fire applicants for upcoming recruit classes.

Contract Compliance Number: 31-6025986, governmental agency, no expiration date.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding for this service was budgeted in the Civil Service Commission’s 2017 general fund budget.
