Explanation

 

BACKGROUND:  This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a professional engineering services agreement with F.K. Enzor, dba Panic Lighting Company for the SMART Street Lighting Control System project, in an amount up to $416,999.10, for Division of Power, CIP No. 670878-100007.

 

The purpose of this project is to purchase and install a control system that will operate the streetlights as smart lighting is implemented.  The intent is to modify this agreement on an annual basis as additional lights are converted and communication is installed for connection to the system.

 

Planning Area is 99 (City-wide).

 

FUTURE MODIFICATION(S):  It is anticipated that there will be future modifications for this project. The Division of Power is currently planning on bidding out the next phase of the overall Smart Lighting project this fall, which will trigger a modification to this agreement to account for the lights in that phase.  Moving forward, the Division of Power plans on doing one phase per year, which will include a new phase of lights being converted to smart technology and a modification to this contract for the controls.

 

TIMELINE: It is anticipated that this phase of the project will be completed in the fall of 2021. 

 

ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT: 

As smart lighting is implemented, the Division of Power will see an improvement in its response time as it will be notified immediately of a light that is no longer working.  The smart lighting project will also replace all existing HPS lights with LED, which will significantly decrease the City’s greenhouse gas emissions.

 

BID INFORMATION: The selection of the firm providing the professional engineering services has been performed in accordance with the procedures set forth in Columbus City Code, Section 329, "Awarding professional service contracts through requests for proposals." 

Proposals were opened on October 21, 2020. The Department received eight (8) proposals from F.K. Enzor, dba Panic Lighting Company; Sensus; ST Engineering; Tilson Technology Management; MS Consultants; RealTerm; Signify; and Fybyr.  

 

An evaluation committee reviewed the proposals and scored them based on the criteria within Columbus City Code Section 329.  The Department of Public Utilities recommends the agreement be awarded to F.K. Enzor, dba Panic Lighting Company.

 

The Contract Compliance Number for F.K. Enzor, dba Panic Lighting Company is 31-4174560 (expires 5/18/2023, MAJ, DAX #006021).

 

Searches in the Excluded Party List System (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against F.K. Enzor, dba Panic Lighting Company. 

 

 

FISCAL IMPACT: This ordinance requires a transfer within of up to $416,999.10, and an expenditure of up to $416,999.10 from the Electricity General Obligation Bond Fund 6303.  An amendment to the 2020 Capital Improvement Budget is necessary to align the authority with the expenditure.
