Explanation

BACKGROUND: The City of Columbus has been awarded a Federal Fiscal Year 2017 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Award from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs via the Franklin County Office of Justice Policy and Programs. The JAG program provides funding to allow states and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime and improve the criminal justice system. The FY17 JAG Award #17-JAG-1000 will provide funds for two separate projects for the Division of Fire and the Division of Police, entitled FY17 JAG Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Crime Lab Upgrades Project. The Division of Fire will purchase Kevlar vests for medic vehicles. The Division of Police will purchase proprietary, e-latent case management software (LatentWorks) and fingerprint comparison computer-based training software (TrainingWorks) with interface to the existing proprietary Police Crime Lab JusticeTrax LIMS system, from Mideo Systems Inc., the sole manufacturer and distributer. The City will act as subgrantee to the Franklin County Office of Justice Policy and Programs. Therefore, the Mayor is required to sign a subgrantee award on behalf of the City. A portion of CPD’s project will be supplemented with State Law Enforcement Contraband/Seizure Funds, authorized via transfer of appropriation within this ordinance. This ordinance also authorizes CPD expenditures in the amount of $70,000.00 from the General Government Grant Fund and $7,610.00 from the State Law Enforcement Contraband/Seizure Fund to enter into a sole source contract with Mideo Systems Inc, as authorized by the grantor, and in compliance with Chapter 329.19(e) Sole Source Procurement of Columbus City Codes, 1959.
