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. 0787-2020.

 

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 was determined by negotiations between H.R. Gray & Associates and the Division of Water.

 

ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:  Division of Water projects include replacement or rehabilitation of water lines that have a high break frequency.  Replacement of these water lines will improve water service, decrease burden on water maintenance operations, and reduce water loss.  Other projects provide improvements to elevated water storage tanks and booster pump stations that are part of the water distribution system.  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.
