Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to establish a Universal Term Contract (UTC) for the option to purchase defibrillators and related consumable supplies with Zoll Medical Corporation. The Division of Fire is the sole user of defibrillators. The Fire Division needs to purchase these medical devices and supplies for use in daily emergency services and emergency medical service (EMS) operations. The term of the proposed option contract would be approximately two (2) years, expiring December 31, 2024, with the option to renew for one (1) additional year. In addition, the expenditure of $1.00 is hereby authorized from General Budget Reservation BRPO002025.

Bid Information: This purchase is recommended to be made with a waiver of formal bidding requirements, as Zoll Medical Corporation is offering special pricing that exceeds the savings offered in their current State Term Pricing; a bid waiver would also result in a more expedient process to replace existing aging defibrillators currently in use by the Division of Fire. This ordinance also authorizes the waiver of the surplus property requirements of the City Code, as Zoll's pricing reflects the trade in of existing equipment that is nearing the end of it's useful life cycle.

Zoll Medical Corporation, CC# 000197 expires 9/24/2024, All Item, $1.00

Emergency Designation: Emergency action is requested to make funding immediately available to acquire this important equipment, and ensure EMS response services can continue without interruption.

This company is not debarred according to the Excluded Parties listing of the Federal Government and are not listed in the Auditor of States database for Findings for Recovery.

FISCAL IMPACT: The expenditure of $1.00 is hereby authorized from General Budget Reservation BRPO002025. City Agencies will be required to obtain approval to expend from their own appropriations for their estimated annual expenditures.
