Explanation

BACKGROUND: Ord. No. 0489-2017, approved by City Council on March 27, 2017, authorized the Board of Health to enter into a contract with OSU Internal Medicine, LLC, in the amount of $240,000.00 to provide HIV-related somatic medical care for the Ryan White HIV Care Part A grant program. The term of this contract was to be March 1, 2017, through February 28, 2018. Prior to the execution of the contract, OSU Internal Medicine, LLC, was acquired by The Ohio State University, OSU Wexner Medical Center. This ordinance is needed to authorize the Board of Health to enter into a contract with The Ohio State University, OSU Wexner Medical Center, in the amount of $240,000.00 to provide HIV-related somatic medical care for the Ryan White HIV Care Part A grant program for the period of 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.

These services were advertised through vendor services (SA005686) in December, 2014, according to bidding requirements of the City Code. The contract compliance number for The Ohio State University, OSU Wexner Medical Center, is 006163 (31-6025986).

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. The Auditor’s Certificate (ACPO001574) that was created per Ord. No. 0489-2017 will need to be cancelled before this contract is authorized.
