Resolution to Renew and Amend the Current Agreement with Psybus, P.C., for Additional Professional Psychological Evaluation Services for the Ann Arbor Police Department Employees ($27,795.00)
Memorandum
Attached for your review and consideration for approval is a resolution to renew and amend the contract with Psybus, P.C., to allow for additional professional psychological evaluation services to Ann Arbor Police Department employees for FY19, and to renew the contract through June 30, 2020.

Historically, psychological evaluations were requested on a case-by-case basis. As a part of a new wellness plan, all sworn AAPD employees were required to receive an annual psychological evaluation. This contract renewal and amendment renews the contract through June 30, 2020 and allows expenditure over the $25,000.00 "not-to-exceed" amount, currently provided, to the extent budgeted.

Dr. Linda Forsberg (Deputy Chief Forsberg's mother) is the president and sole provider at Psybus, PC. The contract was awarded to Psybus, PC prior to the City hiring D/C Forsberg. Per APP 204, Section 4.6.1.5, D/C Forsberg will not participate in directly or indirectly in this purchasing process.

Per the terms of the 2016 Agreement, the City has discretion to terminate this renewal with thirty days' notice to the Contractor, for any reason. The City intends to competitively bid this agreement in the near future.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funds for these services are available in the FY19 and FY20 Police Department budget.
