Explanation

BACKGROUND: To authorize the Director of Finance and Management to enter into a contract with Valmet Inc. for the purchase of four (4) Total Solid Analyzers, each with glass lined internals and a cleanout ring. The equipment will be used at the Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plant to monitor sludge total solids content, thus providing more consistent total solids to the digester feed. This will help the facility process more solids, and less water, which increases digester capacity and improves sludge processing.

Twenty-three (23) bidders (2 F1, 21 MAJ) were solicited and one (MAJ) bid was received and opened on June 21, 2018. After a review of the bid, the Division of Sewerage and Drainage recommends an award be made for all items to Valmet Inc. in the amount of $107,880.00 as the only responsive and responsible and best bidder.

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.
