BY COUNCILOR KRAUSE:
RESOLVED, that Midwest EAP Solutions is awarded a contract to provide employee assistance program services and the proper city officials are hereby authorized to execute the contract with Midwest EAP Solutions, substantially in the form of that on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. ___________, under which that company will provide employee assistance program services to the city for 2006, 2007, and 2008 as follows:
2006:$6.50 per employee, but not to exceed $6,500 for the year;
2007:$7.00 per employee, but not to exceed $7,000 for the year;
2008:$7.50 per employee, but not to exceed $7,500 for the year.
All amounts shall be paid from Fund 630, Agency 036, Organization 1650, Object 5441.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes the city to execute the contract with Midwest EAP Solutions so that the company may begin to provide employee assistance program services to the city. Midwest EAP Solutions, after bid, was the low vendor. The previous provider is no longer in business. The manager of the city’s account under the previous provider now works for Midwest EAP Solutions, so the transition should be relatively seamless. The employee assistance program involves referral assistance with regard to various personal, social, or other human service issues. It has been offered by the city for over 20 years.
