Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify and increase the professional engineering services agreement with Hill International, Inc. for the Professional Construction Management Services (PCM) - 2018 Project.

The PCM assists the City with managing the capital improvements program consisting of multiple projects to ensure completion in accordance with design requirements and City’s needs, while serving as a liaison between the construction contractor, design professional (DP), and City personnel. The PCM team furnishes all necessary competent personnel, equipment, and materials to perform the work, which will generally consist of program support services, design phase services, and construction management services. Funds are authorized through annual contract renewals (or more frequent renewals if required by fiscal needs).

Work performed to date includes program support services, design phase services, and construction management services. Future phases of the contract will continue these same services.

Renewal #1 continued funding for several projects.

This request for additional funding is being treated as a Modification rather than a Renewal because the contract’s 24-month assignment window is being extended three months due to impacts from the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to maintain the construction projects that were originally anticipated to be assigned to this contract. Modification No. 2 will fund PCM services from September 2020 through May 2021 (for projects assigned by December 18, 2020).

FUTURE RENEWAL: Future contract renewals/modifications will be requested for projects assigned by December 18, 2020 and have a notice to proceed date by May 31, 2021.

Community planning is “99-N/A” because the water facilities associated with this contract serve multiple planning areas.
