BACKGROUND:

This legislation authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to enter into contracts with HYO Inc. dba Pengwyn and Almared Inc. dba A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems as a result of a competitive bid that was taken for a dump body, lift gate, snow plow, salt spreader and dedicated compressed natural gas (CNG) engine conversion for the Division of Sewerage and Drainage, Sewer Maintenance Operations Center. The dump body, lift gate, snow plow, salt spreader and dedicated CNG engine conversion will be used to up-fit an existing cab and chassis used by the Sewer Maintenance Operations Center during the summer months to repair sewers and in the winter months to plow snow for the City of Columbus and will replace a 2006 Ford F-450 Truck BT#21814. This CNG up-fit is in support of the Mayor's Get Green Initiative by reducing emissions.

The Purchasing Office advertised and solicited bids in accordance with the relevant provisions of City Code Chapter 329 relating to competitive bidding (Solicitation RFQ001915). Seventy (70) vendors were solicited and two (2) bids were received and opened on July 21, 2016. After a review of the bids, the Division of Sewerage and Drainage recommends a split award be made. Item #1 will be awarded to HYO Inc. dba Pengwyn for the dump body, snow plow in the amount of $46,400.00 and Item #2 will be awarded to Almared Inc. dba A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems for a CNG System up-fit in the amount of $22,150.00 as the lowest responsive and responsible and best bidders.
