Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a professional services contract with E.L. Robinson Engineering of Ohio Company to add additional funds for design of the ADA Ramp Projects - 2018 General Engineering project.
Ordinance 1304-2018 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with E.L. Robinson Engineering of Ohio Company for the ADA Ramp Projects - 2018 General Engineering project. The intent of the contract was to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, with continuing contractual access to additional resources that are necessary to perform professional engineering and survey services and provide technical expertise to the Department in the implementation of roadway maintenance and ADA ramp projects. Improvement types within these projects are typically, but not limited to, the following: curb ramps, curb replacements, roadway resurfacing or improvements, sidewalk, roadside drainage and safety, and traffic pedestrian signals related to the resurfacing and ADA ramp work.

Ordinance 2657-2019 authorized the Director of Public Service to modify the contract in the amount of $40,000.00. This modification was needed to cover the cost of final work for Task 2 of the contract.

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify the contract in the amount of $35,000.00. This is an unplanned modification that is necessary to cover the cost of design for private encroachments discovered that will affect planned construction projects. It was deemed to be more cost efficient to modify the existing contract than to bid this part of the work.

The original contract amount: $250,000.00 (PO119637-1, Ord. 1304-2018)
Modification 1: $40,000.00 (PO199368-1, Ord. 2657-2019)
Modification 2: $35,000.00 (This Ordinance)
