Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation is for the option to establish a Universal Term Contract (UTC) for CNG Fueling Services. The Division of Fleet Management is the primary user. The City of Columbus is currently working on the construction of a City-owned CNG fueling facility on the west side of Columbus to facilitate its fueling needs, particularly for Division of Refuse vehicles as well as other City equipment. After construction is completed it is likely that a back-up supply of CNG will be needed to serve City vehicles. Therefore, it is necessary to contract for CNG fueling services with the facility located nearest to the vehicles in need. The Division of Fleet Management has determined that U.S. Venture is the best and most efficient location to obtain CNG services in this instance and has requested the Division of Purchasing to enter into an option contract to provide for these services. It is requested that the City waive the competitive bidding procedure to allow for award to U.S. Venture, Inc., the location that Fleet Management has determined best suits the City's needs.

The Purchasing Office is recommending award as follows:

U.S. Venture, Inc., CC# CC012024 expires 05/18/2019

Total Estimated Annual Expenditure: $150,000.00, Division of 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.

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