BACKGROUND:

On September 17, 2021 the Department of Finance and Management issued a request for proposal to provide subrecipient monitoring services associated with the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program, RFQ019817.  In accordance with the relevant provisions of Chapter 329 of the Columbus City Code pertaining to professional service contracts and approval of Columbus City Council, Booth Management Consulting, LLC was awarded contract PO304422 in the amount of $28,470.00 on December 22, 2022.

While executing the project procedures and required compliance and accounting testing, additional analytical work has been required and therefore, the Department of Finance and Management is requesting additional funding for the project procedures and produce a product that addresses applicable federal requirements.

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so that the modification may proceed without delay.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Funds for these expenditures are available within the Department of Finance and Management 2022 budget appropriations and administrative cost allocations within U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development grant monies.
