Explanation

BACKGROUND: Laboratory testing and diagnostic services are required to assure quality laboratory services to eligible persons living with HIV or AIDS in Central Ohio for the Ryan White Part A HIV Care Program. This ordinance authorizes the Board of Health to enter into contract with The Ohio State University Hospital in the amount of $81,734.00 to provide laboratory testing services for Ryan White Part A medical providers for the period of March 1, 2017, through February 28, 2018. One of the providers contracted for Ryan White services is OSU Internal medicine, LLC. They are required to utilize labs within the OSU system. Therefore, it is in the best interest of the City to waive the competitive bidding requirements of the City code in order to enter into contract with The Ohio State University Hospital for laboratory services.

Emergency action is requested in order to ensure quality laboratory testing services are available to eligible persons living with HIV/AIDS, and to ensure timely payment to this provider.

The contract compliance number for The Ohio State University Hospital is 005111.

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.
