Explanation

BACKGROUND: The City of Columbus received funding for the Ryan White Part A HIV Emergency Relief Grant Program from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration. This grant requires Columbus Public Health to assure quality medical care to eligible persons living with HIV or AIDS in central Ohio (Franklin, Licking, Delaware, Morrow, Union, Madison, Pickaway and Fairfield counties). The Board of Health will contract with OSU Internal Medicine, LLC, in the amount of $240,000.00 to provide HIV-related somatic medical care. The term of this contract will be March 1, 2017, through February 28, 2018.

The purpose of HIV Care Part A grant program is to improve access to medical care for persons living with HIV or AIDS living in Central Ohio. The goal is that each client will achieve viral suppression, which improves their quality of life and reduces the risk of spreading the infection.

These services were advertised through vendor services (SA005686) in December, 2014, according to bidding requirements of the City Code. The contract compliance number for OSU Internal Medicine, LLC, is 005200 and it expires 2/1/18.

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency in order to ensure that quality medical care is available to eligible persons living with HIV/AIDS, and to ensure timely payment to providers.

FISCAL IMPACT: These contracts are entirely funded by a grant award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration. This ordinance is contingent on the passage of Ordinance No. 0451-2017 that authorizes the acceptance and appropriation of these grant monies.
