Explanation
BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to issue a purchase order to Vance Outdoors, Inc. for the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for use by the Division of Fire, Tactical Emergency Medical team (TEMs), from the existing State of Ohio Term Contract (STS781) with Vance Outdoors, Inc. of Columbus, Ohio. The City of Columbus was awarded a Federal Fiscal Year 2016 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Award from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, via the Franklin County Office of Homeland Security & Justice Programs to acquire forty (40) Safariland Protech Titan Assault vests, helmets, and related ballistic equipment.

The ballistic vests, helmets, and related equipment are Protech Titan Assault Vests (TAV AWS) Tactical Vests and Protech Delta 4 HC helmets, which are equal to the equipment Columbus Police Department's SWAT teams currently use, and offer ballistic protection to the Division of Fire's TEMS team in high-risk entry situations while continuing to provide increased mobility. The Protec equipment meets all requirements of specifications of ballistic protection. The Division of Fire has a need to replace existing PPE suits and helmets that are beyond their useful life. Utilizing the State Term Contract will permit the timely ordering of this equipment. This purchase between the City of Columbus and the State of Ohio is authorized by Ordinance 582-87 that allows for the cooperative purchasing between the State of Ohio Department of Administrative Services Cooperative Contracts and other governmental entities. The total cost of this equipment will be $103,824.00. The City of Columbus and Franklin County entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement via Ordinance 0278-2017 to enable this type of purchase. This is a reimbursement grant where, upon receipt of all products, the City shall pay the vendor invoice and is then reimbursed by said grant.
