Explanation

Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Canvaas Consulting, LLC to develop programming and manage the Linden Community Center’s community-based music studio program. The Linden Music Studio is a fully equipped recording studio located in the newly built Linden Community Center, which will open in late 2020. The contract amount is $100,000.00.

This ordinance will authorize the Director of Recreation and Parks to enter into contract and waive the competitive bidding provisions of the Columbus City Code Chapter 329. The city of Columbus, Recreation and Parks advertised this opportunity on Vendor Services in accordance with City Code Section 329. However, due to the complexity of this project scope and time line required, the firms qualified and interested in providing a cost proposal were minimal. The advertisement for this opportunity resulted in just two submissions of interest.

The scope of work for the Linden Music Studio program includes developing and implementing a curriculum focused on music history, music genres, recording basics, music and video production, instrumental and vocal development and current music distribution strategies including but not limited to the releasing of music on streaming platforms. The selected firm will create a successful plan for community outreach and involvement and providing support services for local musicians and artists that will enable them to expand their reach throughout Central Ohio. The program will begin when the new Linden Community Center opens to the public in late 2020.
