Explanation

BACKGROUND: Through the Ryan White Part A Grant, funds are available for social support services for persons with HIV/AIDS. This ordinance authorizes the Board of Health to enter into contract in the amount of $510,933.80 with Southeast, Inc. for the provision of housing services, case management and emergency financial assistance for people living with HIV/AIDS in Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Morrow, Pickaway, and Union counties. The term of this contract will be March 1, 2017, through February 28, 2018.

The purpose of the 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.

Southeast Inc.’s contract compliance No. is 004491 and expires on 03/11/2018.

These services were advertised through vendor services (SA006124) in November/December, 2015 according to bidding requirements of the City Code.

Emergency action is requested in order to avoid any delays in providing program services, and to ensure timely payment to this provider.

FISCAL IMPACT: This contract is 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.
