Title
Resolution to Approve a Professional Services Agreement with Professional Services Industries, Inc., for Material Testing Services for the 2019 Miscellaneous Utility Project ($37,250.00)
Memorandum
Attached for your approval is a resolution to approve a professional services agreement (PSA) with Professional Services Industries, Inc. (PSI), in the amount of up to $33,852.00 for material testing services for the subject project. The resolution also approves a contingency of $3,398.00 for additional services.

In January of 2018, the City received proposals, in response to Request for Proposal (RFP) No. 18-02, from 6 firms for material testing services in the 2018 and 2019 construction season. A staff committee reviewed and scored the proposals on several criteria:
* Professional Qualifications (15%)
* Proposed Work Plan (25%)
* Past Performance (40%)
* Fee Proposal (20%)
The committee ranked the firms as follows:

1. Materials Testing Consultants
2. PSI
3. Testing Engineers & Consultants
4. CTI & Associates
5. TTL Associates
6. Tyme Consulting Engineering

The committee decided to divide the work for 2018-19 construction season among the first five firms, with PSI selected to perform the testing on the 2019 Miscellaneous Utility Project. Staff has negotiated the scope of work and associated fee for this project and that is reflected in the PSA that is being recommended for Council approval. PSI is in compliance with the requirements of the City's Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances. The form of contract will be the standard PSA drafted by the City Attorney.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funding for this work is included in the existing project budget.
