Explanation

 

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the Board of Health to enter into a contract with Focus EduVation, Inc. for professional online content production and development services for the Healthy Children, Healthy Weight Ohio Healthy Program curriculum conversion to online learning modules for childcare staff professionals in an amount not to exceed $39,000.00. 

 

Columbus Public Health (CPH) originated the Healthy Children, Healthy Weights curriculum which the Ohio Healthy Program is built upon, and therefore, CPH holds the implicit license.  The contract period is from May 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. 

 

Columbus Public Health solicited requests for proposals on April 6, 2017, per RFQ004942 HCHW Online Program.  A committee comprised of Columbus Public Health staff reviewed and recommended Focus EduVation, Inc. as the lowest, responsive, responsible, and best bidder.  Focus EduVation, Inc. Contract Compliance No. is CC021417 (FEIN#03-0428625) and expires 04/06/2019.

 

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so a delay in service does not occur since the grant begins May 1, 2017.

 

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding for this contract ($39,000.00) is budgeted within the Health Department’s Grants Fund, Fund No. 2251 and contingent upon the passage of Ordinance#1109-2017 to accept and appropriate funding from the Ohio Department of Health.
