Explanation

Background: This ordinance authorizes the Finance and Management Director to establish a purchase order with Ace Truck Body Inc., in the amount of $18,892.00 for the up-fit of a Ford 350 Dump Truck per the results of bid RFQ015779 for use by the Recreation and Parks Department. This bid was processed in accordance with the competitive bidding provisions of Columbus City Code. Four bids were received and opened for RFQ015779 on June 22, 2020 as follows:

Ace Truck Body Inc., (CC#: 31-0936828, exp. 2/27/22, MAJ) $18,892.00
HYO, Inc., (CC#: 31-1201883, exp. 5/29/21, MAJ) $21,014.00
*Rose K Erich, (CC#: 31-123389, exp. 5/29/21, MAJ) $15,625.00

Rose K Erich’s bid was deemed non-responsive as it did not meet the specifications requested. The specifications requested up-fitting for an 11 foot truck bed. Rose K Erich provided a quote for a 9 foot truck bed. The cab and chassis being up-fitted is designed for an 11 foot bed, a 9 foot bed would be too small for this configuration.

The Finance and Management Department recommends a bid award be made to Ace Truck Body Inc., as the most responsive and responsible bidder.
