Explanation

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the Board of Health to extend the Neisseria Meningitidis Epidemiology grant from The Ohio State University for the period of 8/1/2020 to 7/31/2022. As per Ordinance # 1888-2020, Columbus Public Health was awarded a grant from The Ohio State University. The Neisseria Meningitidis Epidemiology grant program will allow Columbus Public Health to work with local partners to conduct an intensive evaluation of an ongoing outbreak of sexually transmitted urethritis caused by a distinct, novel clade of non-groupable Neisseria Meningitidis (Nm). The program will screen clients seeking testing for sexually transmitted diseases for Nm infection, and will answer questions about the population affected, the spectrum of symptoms experienced, patients' responses to recommended treatment, and the risk of Nm acquisition by sex partners and the risk of reinfection of cases.

The Grant Number of G502054 will remain the same. The grant period was previously 8/1/2020 to 7/31/2021 and has now been extended to 7/31/2022.

Emergency action is requested to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City's accounting system as soon as possible. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.

FISCAL IMPACT: There is no fiscal impact as this is only to extend the award period. The amount of the grant will remain the same.
