In January 2018, the City received 6 proposals in response to RFP No. 18-02 for material testing services in the 2018 and 2019 construction season.  A staff committee reviewed these proposals based on:

                     Professional Qualifications (15%)

                     Proposed Work Plan (25%)

                     Past Performance (40%)

                     Fee Proposal (20%)

 

The committee allocated testing work for the 2018 and 2019 construction seasons among 5 firms. MTC was selected to perform testing on the 2018 Miscellaneous Utilities Project.

 

Testing services requested by staff from MTC during the 2018 construction season used the initial authorized amount of $24,650.00 for the following work:

                     Sanitary sewer on Stone School Road, Ticknor to Packard

                     Sanitary sewer at Hikone, Packard Rd

                     Water Main on Brookwood, White St to Packard

                     Water Main on Sycamore, White St to Park Place

                     Sanitary Sewer on Lenawee and Lafayette

 

Due to weather, some of the work was suspended until spring 2019:

                     Sanitary sewer on S Forest, Roosevelt to Horman Ct.

                     Sanitary Sewer and Water Main on Horman Ct, S Forest to Olivia

 

Budget and Fiscal Impact:  The estimated fee to complete the project is $15,350.00, funding for which is available within the existing project budget.  MTC complies with the requirements of the City’s Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.
