Attachments: 1. ORD 1717-2022 Information

Explanation

 

1. BACKGROUND:  This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify and extend the contract with Ohio Basement Authority for the Volunteer Sump Pump Program - Blueprint North Linden 1, Phase 2 Project, Capital Improvements Project No. 650876-111191, for the Division of Sewerage & Drainage. 

 

Work under the original contract included sump pump installation in properties in the North Linden 1 area. 

 

Modification No. 1 (current) is being requested to extend the contract timeline and to expand the scope of work allowing sump pump installation in properties outside the North Linden 1 area.

 

Updated Planning Area:  99 - Citywide

 

1.1 Amount of additional funds to be expended:  $0.00*

Original Contract Amount:                     $1,852,944.83                     (PO188338) 

Modification No. 1 (current):                     $              0.00

Total (Orig. + Mod 1):                     $1,852,944.83

 

*Funds will be used from the available balance under PO188338.

 

1.2. Reasons additional goods/services could not be foreseen:  

This modification will allow contract work to be performed outside of the Linden 1 area.  Since the Department is under a mandate from Ohio EPA to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows and basement back-ups, it behooves us to use remaining funds on the current contract to address issues in other areas without adding the additional expense of soliciting new proposals.  Ohio Basement Authority was the sole bidder under the original solicitation and the Department is satisfied with the quality of their work. 

 

1.3. Reason other procurement processes are not used: 

Solicitation of new proposals would result in significant loss of time and project knowledge.

 

1.4. How cost of modification was determined:

This is a no-cost modification; remaining funds on PO188338 will be used for the expanded scope.

 

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

The Department of Public Utilities is under a mandate from Ohio EPA to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows and basement back-ups.  The sump pumps being installed are designed to reduce residential backups in the impacted area(s).

 

3. CONTRACT COMPLIANCE INFO:  38-3823702, (in process of being updated), MAJ, DAX No. 15314

 

Searches in the Excluded Party List System (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against Ohio Basement Authority.

 

4. FISCAL IMPACT:  This is a no-cost modification; remaining funds on PO188338 will be used for the expanded scope.
