Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Executive Director of the Civil Service Commission to modify and increase the maximum authorized expenditure in the contract with Association for Psychotherapy, Inc. for psychological screening of safety recruits for upcoming classes at the Police and Fire Academies. This modification is required in order to add funds for academy classes planned for this year. Funding is typically added after the budget passes each year for classes scheduled the rest of the year. The contract’s requirements cannot be awarded through other procurement processes since this is a professional services contract that has already been awarded through the regular Request for Proposals process. The prices for the services provided in this contract have not increased since the initial contract was approved.

Bid Information: In 2014, the City of Columbus Civil Service Commission published a Request for Proposals (RFP) for these services and accepted proposals through June 23, 2014. Two proposals were submitted, and an evaluation committee reviewed these proposals and the Executive Director awarded the contract to the Association for Psychotherapy, Inc. (Ord. 1623-2014).

Emergency Designation: Emergency legislation is requested in order to allow sufficient time for scheduling for Police and Fire applicants for summer Academy classes.

Contract Compliance Number: 311441549, expires 5/6/17.

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