INTRODUCED BY Crystal Williams, County Legislator


Body
WHEREAS, by Resolution dated 19952, dated August 13, 2018, the Legislature did award a twenty-four month term and supply contract with two twelve-month options to extend for the furnishing of forensic toxicology services for use by the Medical Examiner's Office to Axis Forensic Toxicology of Indianapolis, IN, under the terms and conditions of Invitation to Bid No. 27-18; and,

WHEREAS, the Medical Examiner recommends an additional six-month extension to this contract so it may continue to utilize this vendor's services while the office reevaluates and updates current policies and procedures pertaining to postmortem processing, collection, and testing in accordance with the National Association of Medical Examiner's Forensic Autopsy Standards; and,

WHEREAS, the recommended extension will allow the continued and uninterrupted furnishing of these necessary services through March 31, 2023, which should allow sufficient time to bid, evaluate, and award a successor contract; now therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED by the County Legislature of Jackson County, Missouri, the contract with Axis Forensic Toxicology, be extended as recommended by the Medical Examiner, and that the Director of Finance and Purchasing be, and hereby is, authorized to execute for the County any documents necessary to the accomplishment of the extension; and,
