File #: 2017-2017    Version: 1
Type: Ordinance Status: Passed
File created: 7/17/2017 In control: Public Safety Committee
On agenda: 7/31/2017 Final action: 8/3/2017
Title: To authorize the Finance and Management Director to issue purchase orders to Galls LLC., for past due invoices for uniforms ordered without a purchase order; and to declare an emergency ($0.00)
Explanation

The City of Columbus Department of Public Safety, Division of Police requests that the Finance and Management Director issue purchase orders to Galls, LLC., to process invoices for uniforms received by the Division of Police for orders in 2016 that were inadvertently ordered without going through the new purchasing system. Due to the change in the City's accounting system in 2016, the method of ordering goods and services had to conform with the new system. However, the Division of Police inadvertently made orders using the old system and therefore cannot make payments using the new Purchasing system. This ordinance is to authorize the Finance and Management Director to use funds previously encumbered for Police uniform purchases to create a purchase order to Galls LLC.

This ordinance is a one-time authorization to correct the inadvertent purchase of police uniforms and uniform parts.

The Division’s personnel are auditing approximately 400 invoices to make sure all items were received and the invoice amounts are correct; therefore at the present time there is not a final amount that can be determined and included in this ordinance.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: Emergency legislation is requested so that purchase orders can be issued to pay the vendor for these outstanding invoices before Council recess.

FISCAL IMPACT: Prior year funds are available on an ACPR that was issued in 2016 for uniforms; therefore, there will be no fiscal impact on current General Fund Appropriations.
