Resolution to Award a Contract to Liquiforce Services (USA) Inc. for On-Call Sewer System Services ($500,000.00/Year; RFP No. 977)
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to award a contract to Liquiforce Services (USA) Inc. for a period of three years in the amount of $500,000.00 per year for On-Call Sewer System Services.

This contract is necessary to effectively maintain the City's sewer infrastructure and respond to emergency sewer issues. The City will utilize this contract for services such as sewer cleaning, inspection and rehabilitation as required by the Public Works Unit on an as-needed basis. These services will both supplement activities already performed by Public Works staff and allow the City to perform more advanced maintenance and rehabilitation work.

The modern trenchless sewer repair methods provided by this contract will improve levels of service and minimize construction impacts on residents. In the past, City crews would potentially be required to open cut problem areas, whereas the work will now be performed without any surface disturbance. The contract will further provide inspection and testing capabilities to proactively locate sewer system deficiencies and better manage capital planning.
In response to the Request for Proposals (RFP-977), four (4) proposals were received on Thursday, June 16, 2016. A team of staff members reviewed the proposals and selected Liquiforce Services (USA) Inc. based on their professional qualifications, past experience and fees.

Liquiforce Services (USA) Inc. complies with the City of Ann Arbor's Non-Discrimination and Living Wage Ordinances.
