On agenda: 10/6/2014 Final action: 10/9/2014
Title: To amend the 2014 Capital Improvement Budget; to authorize the City Auditor to transfer funds between projects within the Construction Management Capital Improvement Fund; to authorize the Finance and Management Director to modify a contract with Schooley Caldwell Associates for professional architectural and engineering services for the new 111 Front Street building; to authorize the expenditure of $1,200,000.00 from the Construction Management Capital Improvement Fund; and to declare an emergency. ($1,200,000.00)
Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to modify a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with Schooley Caldwell Associates for professional architectural and engineering consulting services for the new Front and Long Street building. Ordinance No. 1683-2013, passed by City Council on July 18, 2013, authorized the original contract.

A modification of the contract is necessary to provide funding to address changes in the scale, scope and location of the parking garage component associated with the new 111 North Front Street building.

Schooley Caldwell Associates is in the process of completing the base design; it would not be prudent to select another firm to complete the design. To bring on a new design firm now would cause unnecessary delays and duplication of work. Prices already established in the contract and negotiation of additional fees was used to determine the cost of this modification.

Emergency action is requested to so that space planning, design and associated engineering can continue without delay.

Schooley Caldwell Associates Contract Compliance No. 31-0972509, expiration date January 16, 2015.

Fiscal Impact: The cost of this modification is $1,200,000.00. This legislation authorizes a transfer of $1,200,000.00 between projects within the Construction Management Capital Improvement Fund.
