Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a professional services contract with E. P. Ferris & Associates for design of the Roadway - Sullivant Avenue - Hague to I70 project.
Ordinance 0675-2020 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with E. P. Ferris & Associates for the Roadway - Sullivant Avenue - Hague to I70 project. The intent of the contract is to provide design services for improvements to Sullivant Avenue from Hague Avenue to I70 including but not limited to: the replacement of traffic signals between (and excluding) Hague and I70, improvements to street lighting, and the creation of curb extensions/bumpouts at select intersections. Ordinance 2006-2020 authorized the Director of Public Service to modify the contract in the amount of $340,000.00 to expand the scope to include unanticipated design needs.

This planned modification will complete the original design tasks associated with the project. As the consultant is already working on the design, it was deemed to be more cost efficient to modify the existing contract to include this additional work than to bid this part of the work.

The original contract amount: $500,000.00 (PO221257, Ord. 0675-2020)
The total of Modification No. 1: $340,000.00 (PO242466, Ord. 2006-2020)
The total of Modification No. 2: $250,000.00 (This ordinance)

The contract amount including all modifications: $1,090,000.00

Searches in the System for Award Management (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against E. P. Ferris & Associates.
