Title: To authorize the Columbus Partnership to enter into a contract modification with Electrification Coalition relative to the electrification and consumer adoption support and consultation services; and to declare an emergency. ($0.00)
Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Columbus Partnership to modify a contract with Electrification Coalition relative to the electrification and consumer adoption support and consultation services necessary to support the Smart City initiative.

In 2016, the City of Columbus pursued and won a $10 million grant from the Paul G. Allen Philanthropies for the purpose of laying a practical path to replacing carbon-based fuel consumption through critical system improvements that increase safety, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance mobility.

The grant agreement with the Paul G. Allen Philanthropies allows the use of not-for-profit consultants. Ordinance 1279-2018 authorized the Chief Innovation Officer to execute a not-for-profit service contract with the Columbus Partnership to lead initiatives aimed at encouraging electric vehicle adoption by individuals, public entities, and private employers and increasing charging infrastructure locally. The Columbus Partnership previously engaged Electrification Coalition to provide the electrification and consumer adoption support and consultation services necessary to support the Smart City initiative .

The intent of this modification is to provide for the continuation of the electrification and consumer adoption support and consultation services necessary to support the Smart City initiative and to add the role of a storyteller for the program.

2. CONTRACT COMPLIANCE
The Electrification Coalition does not currently have a contract compliance number with the City of Columbus.

ACPO003133 was established per Ordinance 1279-2018 to allow payment of project costs to the Columbus Partnership within Fund 7768 Smart City Private Grant Fund. If Columbus Partnership should seek payment for these costs, payment would be done through the Auditor’s Certificate previously established.
