This contract allows four (4) annual renewal options, which may be exercised at the discretion of the City. The renewals are on a year to year basis and are subject to funds availability and approval of Columbus City Council. CSI International, Inc., will adhere to Code Section 329.18(c) (8) regarding payment of a responsible wage.

Bid Information:   RFQ021209 was advertised and nine (9) Best Value Procurement proposals with pricing were received on April 6, 2022.

An evaluation committee consisted of representatives from: Department of Finance and Management, The Department of Public Utilities, and the Human Resources Department.  Of the nine (9) vendors that submitted proposals, four (4) were selected for presentations.  After presentation from the four vendors the committee presented its rankings to the Finance and Management Director.
