Title
Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 1 to the Professional Services Agreement with Perimeter Engineering, LLC ($10,000.00) for Construction Inspection Services
Memorandum
The Project Management Services Unit (PMSU) provides inspection for construction of capital projects and private development projects within the City's right-of-way. The construction inspector's tasks include oversight of contractor activities, enforcement of construction standards (e.g., materials and methods), and measurement of pay item quantities. These tasks are critical to the success of any construction project.

Due to the fluctuation of construction activity throughout the year, the level of staffing within PMSU must often be supplemented to provide sufficient inspection for all of the projects that occur. This year, PMSU required additional inspectors to help cover both the city's planned capital projects and private development construction.

The inspection services provided by Perimeter are paid for within approved project budgets and annual operating budgets as appropriate.

On May 5, 2014, City Council approved a contract for $100,000.00 to Perimeter Engineering, LLC (Perimeter) to provide the inspection services described above, through the City's standard RFP process (RFP #890). The level of support required from Perimeter was estimated at that time, and an additional $10,000.00 is required to adequately complete the work assigned to them.

Perimeter complies with the requirements of the non-discrimination and Living Wage Ordinances.
