Explanation

Background: This ordinance is to authorize the City Auditor to establish an auditor’s certificate in the amount of $450,000.00 for various expenditures for professional architectural, engineering, and construction management services in conjunction with park, trail, and facility capital improvement projects. This ordinance will also waive the competitive bidding provisions of Columbus City Code Chapter 329, authorizing the Department of Recreation and Parks to enter into contracts on behalf of the City for the professional services mentioned herein so long as total expenditures under any contract do not exceed one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00). Ordinance 2453-2018 authorized a similar arrangement of pre-qualified vendors for the period of 2018 to 2020 and Ordinance 2050-2020 authorized a similar arrangement of pre-qualified vendors for the period of 2020 to 2022. The 2018 to 2020 pilot arrangement was a success and was continued for the 2020 to 2022 period, creating efficiencies for many projects during this time. Therefore, this ordinance will renew this pre-qualified arrangement for the period of 2022 to 2024.

This legislation will authorize the establishment of an auditor certificate for the future award of contracts for Architectural, Engineering, and Construction Management Services. Contracts will be awarded to Consultants that have been pre-qualified in accordance with Columbus City Code Sections 329.26 and 329.27. Services that will be provided may include, but are not limited to:

? Architectural Design, Structural Engineering
? Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC Engineering
? Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Structural Engineering
? Construction Management and Inspection
