Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Finance and Management Director to issue purchase orders on behalf of the Facilities Management Division, with S.A. Comunale, Inc. for annual smoke and fire alarm testing, inspection and repair, as well as sprinkler inspections, fire pump testing, and fire suppression testing for the Facilities Management Division. This ordinance seeks authority to establish these purchase orders from a State of Ohio Master Maintenance Agreement.
Ordinance No. 582-87 authorizes City agencies to participate in Ohio Department of Administrative Services (DAS) cooperative contracts. The State of Ohio Master Maintenance Agreement (MMA7518) with S.A. Comunale, expires 4/30/22.
Due to the critical nature of Fire Inspection Services required by the Division of Facilities Management, we respectfully request that the competitive bidding provisions of the Columbus City Codes be waived to continue this relationship with the existing provider while the City competitively selects a provider through a Best Value Procurement.

Emergency action is requested so that purchase orders can be established as quickly as possible to ensure an uninterrupted continuation of services.

Fiscal Impact: This ordinance authorizes an expenditure of $167,000.00. The Facilities Management Division budgeted $250,000.00 in the 2021 General Fund Budget.
