Resolution to Authorize a Purchase Order to Carrier & Gable, Inc. for Traffic Control Materials and Supplies ($397,000.00)
Please find attached for your consideration a resolution that authorizes a purchase order to Carrier & Gable, Inc. for traffic control materials and supplies. Carrier & Gable, Inc. will be supplying the City with materials both on the State of Michigan MiDeal contract #591B7700221 and some items that are not included on the State bid as a sole-source supplier

Carrier & Gable Inc., is the sole area distributor for Union Metal Mast-Arms, Carmanah RRFBs and Qwick-Kurb gateway treatment signage.

The advantages of sole source supply include reduced inventory requirements, the need to train technicians in the repair of only one type of product, and compatibility with existing infrastructure.

Carrier & Gable Inc., holds the State of Michigan MiDeal Contract #591B7700221 for traffic signal and sign materials with the exclusion of Eagle Traffic Control products, which will be solely distributed by Siemens Mobility, Inc. The contract pricing will be utilized for all non-sole-source items.

We are requesting $397,000.00 for several planned projects and for the purchase of normal maintenance supplies as follows:

Gateway Signage ($39,000.00) /Sole-Source
