Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance is needed to authorize the Board of Health to modify a contract with Knupp, Watson and Wallman, Inc. (FEID#39-1658926) to provide advertising services for a HIV Outreach targeted marketing campaign. The City of Columbus received funding from the Ohio Department of Health for the HIV Prevention Grant Program to pay the cost of the contract. It is necessary to modify the existing contract with Knupp, Watson & Wallman, Inc., authorized by Ordinance No. 0240-2021, for the provision of additional services. This modification is for an amount not to exceed $225,000.00, for a total contract amount of $305,000.00, and is for the period through December 31, 2021.

The Federal HIV Prevention Grant Program enables Columbus Public Health to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate HIV counseling and testing/referral; partner counseling; and health education/risk reduction behavior modification programs. Services are provided to residents of Franklin County and other regional counties, with special emphasis on men who have sex with men, individuals with high risk sexual contact, youth, and injection drug/substance users.

Emergency action is requested in order to provide continued services without interruption.

FISCAL IMPACT: This contract modification is entirely funded by a grant award from the Ohio Department of Health. A transfer of appropriation within Fund 2251 is necessary to align funding for this project expenditure.
