Explanation

 

BACKGROUND:

This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to execute a planned modification to the 2020 - 2022 Construction Administration and Construction Inspection (CA/CI) Services agreement with Resource International, Inc.

Total (Orig. + Mods 1-4)                     $3,705,073.86

 

Reasons additional goods/services could not be foreseen:  

This is a three-year agreement for fiscal years 2020 - 2022 and modifications were anticipated and explained in the original legislation under Ordinance No. 0506-2020.

 

Reason other procurement processes are not used: 

This is a multiyear contract that will be modified as required to provide construction administration/inspection services for construction projects that bid during the three year (2020-2022) timeframe.  

 

How cost of modification was determined:

The cost of this modification was determined by negotiations between Resource International and the DOSD.

 

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

Division of Sewerage and Drainage projects include rehabilitation of existing sewers, repair to existing sewers, construction of new sewers, and construction of green infrastructure.  The majority of the projects will reduce inflow and infiltration to the City’s sanitary sewer system thus mitigating sanitary sewer overflows to basements and waterways.  Other projects provide improvement to existing storm infrastructure to mitigate drainage/flooding issues.

 

Division of Water projects include replacement or rehabilitation of water lines that have a high break frequency and valves that are inoperable.  Replacement of these water lines will improve water service, decrease burden on water maintenance operations, and reduce water loss. The Neighborhood Liaison(s) will be contacted and informed of this project during the design phase.  Further community outreach may result through the Neighborhood Liaison Program.

 

FUTURE MODIFICATION(S):  The Department anticipates requesting additional future modifications to this contract as new construction projects begin during 2021 and 2022.

 

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE INFO: 31-0669793 | Exp. 1/23/22 | WBE | DAX #4197

 

Searches in the Excluded Party List System (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against Resource International, Inc.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  Funding for this project will be shared by the Division of Sewers and Drains’ Stormwater Section, the Division of Water, and the Department of Public Service.

 

There is sufficient funding and budgetary authority within the Water G.O. Voted Bonds Fund - Fund No. 6006.

 

There is sufficient funding and budgetary authority within the Storm Sewer General Obligation Bond Fund - Fund No. 6204.

 

There is sufficient cash and budgetary authority within the Streets and Highways Bond Fund, Fund 7704, for this expenditure.  It is necessary to amend the 2020 Capital Improvements Budget to align budget authority with the proper project.  A transfer of cash and appropriation between projects within the Streets and Highways Bond Fund is also needed to move cash and appropriation to the correct project.
