Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to enter into a consulting agreement with Matrix Consulting Group for an operations review of the Department of Public Safety.
This Public Safety Review will entail an operations review of the Columbus Division of Police, as well as select Division policies, procedures, training, and recruitment. The review will address these issues through the lens of community and problem-oriented law enforcement services. Matrix Consulting Group will work directly with an assigned City of Columbus liaison and project team, and will also support the research needs of the Columbus Community Safety Advisory Commission. This review will be further informed by Mayor Andrew J. Ginther’s Comprehensive Neighborhood Safety Strategy and prior third party assessments of the Division of Police.
Formal Requests for Proposals (RFQ008713) were solicited by the City of Columbus on April 9, 2018, with a bid opening on May 10, 2018. The City received seven (7) responses. A five (5) member RFP evaluation committee was formed and committee members were asked to evaluate each proposal. The committee selected three (3) finalists; Berkshire Advisors, Matrix Consulting, and Police Foundation. On June 25 and 26, 2018, the three finalists presented to the full Committee. After the presentations, the RFP evaluation committee met again and updated their scoring. Matrix Consulting Group received the most points and received the first place vote of each member of the evaluation committee. The Department of Finance and Management therefore seeks authority to enter into contract with Matrix Consulting Group.
