File #: 20-0483    Version: 1 Name: 5/4/20 - Amend Purchase Order for Spartan Distributors Inc.
Type: Resolution Status: Passed
File created: 5/4/2020 In control: City Council
On agenda: 5/4/2020 Final action: 5/4/2020
Enactment date: 5/4/2020 Enactment #: R-20-150
Title: Resolution to Approve an Amendment to the Purchase Order with Spartan Distributors Inc. for Equipment Parts (Not to Exceed $10,000.00)

Title

Resolution to Approve an Amendment to the Purchase Order with Spartan Distributors Inc. for Equipment Parts (Not to Exceed $10,000.00)

Memorandum

We recommend your approval of the attached resolution authorizing an amendment in an amount not to exceed $10,000.00 to the existing $25,000.00 purchase order, with Spartan Distributors Inc., for a total amount not to exceed $35,000.00 to supply parts and equipment for City equipment for FY20.

 

Spartan Distributors is the Michigan provider of parts for Toro and EZGO equipment used by the City.  Historically, the Fleet & Facilities Unit issues an annual purchase order not to exceed $25,000.00 and that regularly meets the needs of Fleet Services to maintain our inventory of Toro and EZGO mowers, carts and other small equipment.  In FY20, a significant repair of over $8,000.00 was required and it appears that will cause Fleet Services to exceed the existing $25,000.00 purchase order for the balance of the fiscal year, thus requiring City Council approval. 

 

Spartan Distributors is subject to the terms and conditions of the City’s standard purchase order.

 

Spartan Distributors Inc. complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest and Non-Discrimination ordinances.
