Explanation

 

BACKGROUND

The Board of Health entered into a contract with The Ohio State University Hospital in the amount of $90,000.00 authorized by ordinance 0794-2018 for Laboratory Testing and Diagnostic Services to eligible persons living with HIV or AIDS in Central Ohio (Franklin, Licking, Delaware, Morrow, Union, Madison, Pickaway and Fairfield counties) for the Ryan White Part A HIV Care Program for the contract period of March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019.

 

This ordinance is needed to modify and increase contract PO117257 in the amount of $32,000.00 for the total contract amount not to exceed $122,000.00 with The Ohio State University Hospital.

 

Initial funding was established because of a partial grant award from the Health Resources and Service Administration.  Once additional funding was allocated from the Health Resources and Service Administration, additional funding for this vendor was able to be allocated.  Additional funding is required to continue to provide HIV Care laboratory services to OSU Hospital clients.  The modification amount was determined by negotiations with the vendor and budget projections for billable client services for Ryan White eligible clients.  This ordinance will provide anticipated funding needed for the remainder of the contract period ending February 28, 2019.

 

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency to ensure sufficient funding is available to provide laboratory services to eligible persons living with HIV/AIDS, and to ensure timely payment to this provider.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  The funds needed to modify and increase this contract with The Ohio State University Hospital are available within the Health Department Grants Fund, Fund No. 2251.  This ordinance will provide funding for this contract modification in the amount of $32,000.00.  This contract is entirely funded by a grant award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration and does not require a city match.
