Explanation

Need: The Civil Service Commission needs to modify the contract and increase the maximum authorized expenditure in the contract with Mount Carmel Occupational Health for pre-employment physicals and cardiovascular stress testing of public safety recruits in preparation for upcoming Police and Fire Academy classes.  This modification is required in order to add funds for upcoming academy classes.  Funding is typically added yearly or prior to each academy class.  The contract’s requirements cannot be awarded through other procurement processes since this a professional services contract that has already been awarded through the regular Request for Proposals process.

Emergency designation: Emergency legislation is requested in order to allow sufficient time for the Department of Public Safety to continue to schedule police and fire candidates for upcoming recruit classes.

 

Contract Compliance Number:  31-1439334, expires 2/7/2022 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  Funding for this service was budgeted in the Civil Service Commission’s 2020 general fund budget.
