Explanation
BACKGROUND:

Need: The purpose of this legislation is to amend the 2013 CIB and authorize the expenditure of $81,244.11 for miscellaneous fire, rescue and medic equipment for Division of Fire operations; said equipment will be informally bid, or acquired via quotes solicited from existing universal term contract vendors, and will be used to supply emergency response apparatus that is currently under construction via a separately awarded bid solicitation. This procurement method is more cost effective compared to bidding the apparatus and equipment in a single bid solicitation, as vendor mark-up is avoided when dealing directly with authorized vendors.

Bid Information: Funds are needed for various purchases of fire, rescue and medic equipment to supply fire apparatus currently in construction. The competitive bidding process for the purchase of this equipment is followed and once competitive bids are received and/or quotes are solicited from existing universal term contract vendors, funds are encumbered against the certificate.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Budgeted Amount: Funding is available within Fire's approved Safety Voted Bond Funds, Apparatus Replacement Projects.
