Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to enter into a contract with Rexel USA, Inc. for the purchase of Aluminum Poles, Fiberglass Poles, Aluminum Bases and Brackets for the Division of Power. The Aluminum Poles, Fiberglass Poles, Aluminum Bases and Brackets will be used at the Division of Power to replenish stock for maintenance of the City’s street light distribution system.

The Purchasing Office advertised and solicited competitive bids in accordance with the relevant provisions of City Code Chapter 329 relating to competitive bidding (Solicitation RFQ019184). Three (3 MAJ) bids were received and opened on July 22, 2021. After a review of the bids, the Division of Power recommends the award be made to the most responsive, responsible and best bidder, Rexel USA, Inc. for Items 10-110 and 130-270.

Pepco Professional Electric Products Company was the lowest bidder for Item's #120 and #170 but bid incorrect prices on both lines. Item#120 will be re bid because Pepco Professional Electric Products Company was the only bidder and they bid an incorrect price. Also, Pepco Professional Electric Products Company was low bidder for Item#170, but they bid an incorrect price so it will be awarded to Rexel USA, Inc.

The company is not debarred according to the Excluded Party Listing System of the Federal Government or prohibited from being awarded a contract according to the Auditor of State Unresolved Findings for Recovery Certified Search.
