Explanation
1. BACKGROUND

The Department of Public Service is in the process of bidding the construction portion for Phase 1 of the High Street/Short North revitalization project. To ensure this phase of the project is completed on-time, Public Service will secure the traffic commodities required for the project. The lead time on these commodities can be up to 5 months from order. The Public Service, Division of Traffic Management, is requesting to waive bidding provisions of City Code Chapter 329 to establish a purchase order with Gexpro Columbus (Valmont Structures).

Funds for this expenditure are budgeted in the 2016 CIB, Fund 7704 The Street and Highway Bond Fund.
