Explanation

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the Director of Finance and Management to enter into a contract with ADS LLC for the purchase and delivery of Flow Monitors for the Division of Sewerage and Drainage, SSES Section. The Flow Monitors will be used to report flow information to the division's real time control system.

The Purchasing Office advertised and solicited competitive bids in accordance with the relevant provisions of City Code Chapter 329 relating to competitive bidding (RFQ0015683). Forty-One (41) bidders (1 MBE, 35 MAJ, 2 F1, 3 MBR) were solicited and One (1 MAJ) bid was received and opened on June 18, 2020. After a review of the bid, the Division of Sewerage and Drainage recommends an award be made for all items to ADS LLC as the only responsive, responsible and best bidder in the amount of $88,532.16.
EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: This ordinance is being submitted as an emergency because it will save the Division of Sewerage and Drainage $5,000.00 with a quoted discount which is only good for 90 days. Without emergency action, no less than thirty-seven days will be added to this procurement cycle and the efficient delivery of valuable public services will be slowed, and to provide the necessary establishment of funding to allow for the payment of services for all past, present and future business done by the City of Columbus with ADS LLC.

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.
