Explanation

 

BACKGROUND: This ordinance is for the option to establish a Universal Term Contract (UTC) for Moyno Pumps and Pump Parts for the Department of Public Utilities, Division of Sewers and Drainage. This equipment will be used at the Southerly and Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plants for pump replacement and repair on existing equipment. The term of the proposed option contract will be through July 31, 2019 with the option to extend one additional one year period, subject to mutual agreement of both parties. The Purchasing Office opened formal bids on April 20, 2017.

 

The Purchasing Office advertised and solicited competitive bids in accordance with the relevant sections of the Columbus City Code (Solicitation RFQ004927). Nineteen bids (19) bids were solicited. One bid was received (MAJ:1). After review, the Purchasing Office recommends the award be made to the lowest and responsible and best bidder, Liberty Process Equipment for All Items.

 

The Purchasing Office is recommending award of one contract to the lowest, responsive, responsible and best bidder:

 

Liberty Process Equipment, CC#007364, exp. 04/19/2019

Total Estimated Annual Expenditure: $150,000.00

 

This company is not debarred according to the Excluded Parties listing of the Federal Government and is not listed in the Auditor of State database for Findings for Recovery.

 

This ordinance is being submitted as an emergency because without emergency action, the maintenance and repair of wastewater equipment may be delayed due to a lapse in contracts.

 

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding to establish this option contract is budgeted in the General Fund. The Public Utilities Department will be required to obtain approval to expend from their own appropriations.
