Memorandum
This memorandum and resolution request approval of a progressive design-build agreement with J. Ranck Electric, Inc. to provide professional design services for the Water Treatment Plant Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System Modernization Project for $210,198.00. This project is in the City's approved Capital Improvements Plan.

In September 2018, the City issued a request for proposal (RFP) for the Project. The RFP contemplated progressive design-build project delivery, in which, during Phase I of the Project, a design-builder provides professional services and proposes a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for the design. After Phase I, the City will evaluate the GMP and decide whether to recommend proceeding with Phase II - Construction.

The Project is to replace over 20-year old legacy programmable logic controllers (PLC's) and SCADA computer systems with new, modern components capable of additional functionality and integration with other plant software packages and equipment. Production of critical components of the PLCs is discontinued and they are not supported any more. The Project will improve the overall reliability of plant control functions, add more data logging and aggregation, integrate the SCADA system with other plant software applications, and comply with industry standard security protocols.

The City received proposals from teams led by GHD, Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr, & Huber (FTC&H), and J. Ranck Electric, Inc. These were reviewed and evaluated based on:
* Profile for the lead firm (including location, financial condition, bonding, & insurance information);

* Relevant experience on similar projects;
* Project approach (to both p...
