This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a purchase contract with IPS Group, Inc., by increasing the amount authorized for apppropriation and expenditure thereunder to include annual meter management, service and components provided by IPS Group, Inc. for this contract with the Department of Public Service. This contract modification will be done through the sole source procurement provision of Columbus City Code Chapter 329.

Ordinance 1041-2010 authorized the execution of the original contract, providing the City with the ability to replace its entire inventory of over 4,000 parking meters, which have exceeded their designed service life, and allowing for expansion of the meter program. The contract terms included fixed costs for the parking meters and related services over the five-year contract period and were subject to the availability of funding and the approval of City Council.

The management, support, parts, supplies and repair of the City's entire parking meter inventory is proprietary to IPS Group, Inc., meeting the sole source procurement provision of City Code Chapter 329. Future contracts and modifications shall be subject to approved appropriations and City Council approval.

In addition, this contract modification will provide funding for the annual meter management system ($300,000.00) with maintenance and components as established under the contract.
