Title

A Resolution authorizing the Director of Public Health Madison and Dane County to sign a non-competitive service contract with The Safe Community Coalition of Madison and Dane County, Inc. for a drug poisoning and opioid harm reduction initiative.

Body

WHEREAS, in 2011 Public Health-Madison and Dane County (PHMDC) was requested by both the Common Council and the Dane County Board of Supervisors to work with partners to develop a poisoning/opiates initiative; and

 

WHEREAS, Safe Community Coalition of Madison and Dane County, Inc. (“Safe Communities”) was selected for this work beginning in 2012 and such work has included coordinating a summit (Stop the Opioid Overdose Epidemic), mobilizing partners for the Health Care Task Force on Safe Opioid Prescribing and the Parent Addiction Network; and

 

WHEREAS, Safe Communities has continued to perform such work (2017 Stop the Opioid Overdose Epidemic Summit, continuation of the Health Care Task Force on Safe Opioid Prescribing, quarterly Naloxone trainings for families with the AIDS Resource Center WI, ) under contract with PHMDC each year since 2012 with funding in PHMDC’s operating budget approved by both the City and County and for the 2019 contract will continue such work; and

 

WHEREAS,  PHMDC is required to follow City of Madison purchasing procedures, and under MGO 4.26, a service contract of $50,000 or more that is not competitively selected must meet one or more exceptions under MGO 4.26(4)(a) and be approved by the Common Council;  and

 

WHEREAS the Safe Community Coalition of Madison and Dane County, Inc. was not competitively selected but is uniquely qualified to administer the poisoning/opiates initiative and has provided similar services in the past and it would be efficient on the basis of time and money to continue to use this contractor, thus meeting the exception of  MGO 4.26(4)(a)7.;

 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Common Council of the City of Madison authorizes the Board of Health for Madison and Dane County, on behalf of Public Health-Madison and Dane County to enter into a contract for the coordination and operation of a poisoning/opiates initiative for $78,276 with the Safe Community Coalition of Madison and Dane County, Inc. and authorizes the Director of Public Health to sign the contract; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the contract is for one year, with the possibility of two one-year renewals if funding is appropriated by the City of Madison Common Council and the Dane County Board of Supervisors.
