Explanation

Background Information:  This legislation authorizes the Director of Human Resources to enter into contract with Mount Carmel Health Systems for health and physical fitness testing services for the Divisions of Police and Fire in the amount of $1,154,948; the Division of Police portion totals $224,000 and the Division of Fire portion totals $930,948.  This ordinance represents the fourth of a five year contract, from March 1, 2020 to February 28, 2021.  Following the fifth year, the contract allows for three one year extensions if all parties are in agreement.  Every year the contract renewal is subject to available appropriation and funding.    This contract was last bid in September, 2016 (RFQ 002701); the committee unanimously recommended the contract be awarded to Mount Carmel Health Systems / Occupational Health. 

 

The health and physical fitness program is part of the current collective bargaining agreement between the City of Columbus and Fraternal Order of Police, Capital City Lodge #9 and the City of Columbus and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local #67.  The intent of the program is to ensure the overall general health and fitness of police officers and fire fighters.

 

Originally, this contract was entered into by the Department of Public Safety.  In 2014, the Department of Human Resources began managing the contract for both the Division of Police and the Division of Fire.

 

Fiscal Impact:  Funding for this contract totals $1,154,948.00 and is budgeted in the 2020 Department of Human Resources' general fund budget specifically for this purpose.  As stated above, this is the fourth year of a five year contract, which allows for three one year additional extensions following the fifth year.  Every year, contract renewal is subject to available and adequate appropriation and funding.

 

Mount Carmel Health Systems contract compliance number is 31-1439334.  This ordinance is contingent on the passage of general fund budget, Ordinance 2925-2019.

 

Emergency Action:  Emergency action is requested so that testing may continue pursuant to collective bargaining contracts between the City of Columbus and the Fraternal Order of Police, Capital City Lodge #9 and the City of Columbus and the IAFF Local #67 Firefighters Union.
