This legislation authorizes the Director of Development to modify the contract with Franklin County Public Health by adding an additional $45,000.00.

The Department of Development posted solicitation RFQ014279 in November 2019 and sought bids for licensed lead risk inspectors/assessors and/or lead abatement contractors for conducting lead based paint inspections; preparing risk assessment reports, work specifications, and cost estimates; and providing final clearance testing in privately-owned residential housing units in accordance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), State of Ohio, and City of Columbus regulations. Two vendors responded and a contract was awarded to both vendors.

This service is needed to fulfill the requirements of the 2019 Lead Hazzard Control and Healthy Homes grant received by the City in late 2019 and effective December 2, 2019.

The original contract expires December 31, 2020.

Because federal regulations allows the department to utilize the same vendor throughout the life of the grant if the Department is pleased with the performance of work, the Department may seek Council approval to renew the contract for each remaining year of the grant: 2021, 2022, and 2023.
