 Explanation

BACKGROUND:  This legislation is for the option to establish a Universal Term Contract (UTC) for Ford OEM Parts. These parts are used for the City's vehicles and equipment on an as needed basis. The term of the proposed option contract would be approximately two years, expiring March 31, 2019, with the option to renew for one (1) additional year.  The Purchasing Office opened formal bids on February 9, 2017.                      

 

The Purchasing Office advertised and solicited competitive bids in accordance with the relevant provisions of Chapter 329 relating to competitive bidding (Solicitation No. RFQ004312).  

 

The Purchasing Office is recommending award to the overall lowest, responsive, responsible and best bidder as follows:

 

Dick Masheter Ford Inc, , CC004265 expires 2/8/2019, All Items, $1.00

Total Estimated Annual Expenditure: $400,000, Fleet Management, the primary user

 

The company is not debarred according to the Excluded Party Listing System of the Federal Government or prohibited from being awarded a contract according to the Auditor of State Unresolved Findings for Recovery Certified Search.  This ordinance is being submitted as an emergency because, without emergency action, no less than 37 days will be added to this procurement cycle and the efficient delivery of valuable public services will be slowed.

 

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding to establish this option contract is from the General Fund.  City Agencies will be required to obtain approval to expend from their own appropriations for their estimated annual expenditures.
