Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify an existing engineering agreement with Korda/Nemeth Engineering, Inc. for the Blueprint Hilltop 4 Highland/Harris Integrated Solutions Project. It is the objective of the City to mitigate DSRs (Designed Sewer Relief) overflows throughout the City’s collection system to the 10-year level of service. The City will evaluate and determine if this is best accomplished by eliminating inflow and infiltration into sanitary sewers, and constructing green infrastructure to retain and treat the resulting storm water.

Renewal Information:

1.1 Amount of additional funds to be expended: $ 1,198,723.97
Original Contract $ 2,000,862.80
Renewal #1 $ 1,198,723.97
CONTRACT TOTAL $ 3,199,586.77

1.2 Reasons additional goods/services could not be foreseen.
This modification was anticipated.

1.3 Reason other procurement processes are not used:
Substantial information and knowledge has been developed by the consultant through work performed during the first three years of work on this engineering agreement. If the work to be performed under this modification was to be bid out separately, tasks already completed would be performed repetitively causing significant delays and incurring additional cost. Also delays would put the City at risk of missing consent order deadlines.

1.4 How cost of modification was determined:
A scope of services, consistent with the original proposal and contract, was developed and fee was negotiated between the City and consultant.

PROJECT TIMELINE: It is anticipated that this modification will be for a term of 2 years.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: Emergency designation is not requested at this time.
