Explanation

 

1. BACKGROUND:  This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to renew the professional engineering services agreement with Black and Veatch Corporation for the Hap Cremean Water Plant Intake Structure and Low Head Dam Rehabilitation Project, Capital Improvements Project No. 690511-100000, Division of Water Contract No. 2086.

 

The overall agreement will provide professional engineering services for the Hap Cremean Water Plant (HCWP) Intake Structure and Low Head Dam improvements, CIP No. 690511-100000, Contract No. 2086. 

 

Under the original agreement, Step 1 - Condition Assessment & Preliminary Design was performed.

 

Under Renewal #1 (current), Step 2 - Detailed Design and Construction Bidding Services will be performed. 

 

FUTURE RENEWAL:  The agreement will be renewed to provide Step 3 - Engineering Services During Construction.

 

Planning Area: The dam and intake are integral elements of the treatment process and the Hap Cremean Water Plant serves multiple planning areas so the project planning area is “99-N/A”.

 

1.1 Amount of additional funds to be expended:  $1,471,800.00

Original Contract Amount:                     $   336,750.00   (PO097719)

Renewal #1 (current):                     $1,471,800.00

Total (Orig. + Renewal No. 1):                     $1,808,550.00

 

1.2. Reason other procurement processes are not used: 

The work being performed was anticipated under original authorizing legislation, Ordinance No. 2878-2017.  The current consultant has since gained detailed knowledge of the condition of the structures that is essential for completing the detailed design.  Awarding this work to a new consultant would require duplication of some of the condition assessment work already performed, increasing project costs and extending the project schedule.

 

1.3. How cost of renewal was determined:

Black and Veatch Corporation projected hours/resources necessary to complete Step 2, Contract Renewal #1 services based on anticipated design needs and historical information from similar projects.

 

2. ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT: 

This project will address aging infrastructure associated with processes that are necessary for adequate drinking water supply and treatment.  These systems have experienced structural and operational issues in the past and many components are past their useful life.  The HCWP is an essential and integral component in the Columbus area water supply and treatment infrastructure.  Adequate safe supply of water is essential to economic growth and development. 

 

Public informational meetings are not anticipated for this project, all proposed work should be within the boundaries of the water treatment facility.  Regulatory agencies will be notified of the proposed work as appropriate.

 

3. CONTRACT COMPLIANCE INFO:  43-1833073, expires 9/18/19, MAJ, DAX No. 8038

 

Searches in the Excluded Party List System (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against Black and Veatch Corporation.

 

4. FISCAL IMPACT: An appropriation and transfer of funds within the Water G.O. Bonds Fund will be necessary as well as an amendment to the 2018 Capital Improvements Budget.
