1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to enter into contract and issue purchase orders as needed with Esec Corporation for the purchase of two spray injection pothole patcher trucks. This purchase will be made for the Department of Public Service, Division of Infrastructure Management.

The Division of Infrastructure Management will use the equipment to maintain and repair the streets throughout the City of Columbus. The City of Columbus, Fleet Management Division, approved the purchase of this equipment to replace equipment that has reached the end of its useful life.

The Purchasing Office advertised and solicited competitive bids in accordance with the relevant provisions of City Code Chapter 329 relating to competitive bidding (Solicitation RFQ015685) through Vendor Services. The City received two bids for the spray injection pothole patcher trucks on July 23, 2020, and they were tabulated as follows:

Company Name Bid Amount City/State Majority/MBE/FBE
Esec Corporation $462,460.00 Grove City, OH Majority
Leader Machinery Company $448,090.00 Monroe, OH Majority
