Title

Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 4 for the Professional Services Agreement with Stantec Consulting Michigan, Inc., for Water Treatment Professional Engineering Services ($150,000.00)

Memorandum

This memorandum and resolution requests approval of Amendment No. 4 to the professional services agreement for professional engineering services with Stantec Consulting Michigan, Inc. (Stantec).  Council approved a professional services agreement for $200,000 through FY19 with Stantec in June 2016 as part of Resolution No. R-16-213, Amendment No. 1 in March 2017 as part of Resolution No. R-17-080 for $410,140.00, Amendment No. 2 in November 2017 as part of Resolution R-17-407 for $200,000.00, and Amendment No. 3 as part of Resolution R-19-159 for $200,000.00. The total value of the contract is currently $1,010,140.00.

 

The City is seeking to amend the professional services agreement with Stantec to accommodate additional professional engineering service needs over the remaining duration of the contract.  The task-based contract is effective FY17 through FY20.  Stantec is currently supporting Public Services on numerous projects within the Water Treatment Services Unit (WTSU).    As of the December of FY20, Stantec has completed Barton Turbine Overhaul investigation, bathymetric survey of Barton Pond, Ozone Chiller Replacement study/design/bid, and Geddes Dam Recoating and Repairs design.  Currently, Stantec is working on the Ozone Chiller Replacement construction phase, the Geddes Dam Recoating and Repairs construction phase, and continues to provide electrical engineering services, as well as hydroelectric dam/FERC regulatory assistance.  Stantec has demonstrated themselves to be experienced in a wide range of disciplines, responsive and cost effective in meeting those diverse needs on complex engineering tasks associated with the WTSU.

 

Additional professional engineering services are required to support the Water Treatment Services Unit with capital, operation, and maintenance projects at the Water Treatment Plant and associated facilities, recreational dams, and hydroelectric generating dams in order to maintain the aggressive capital improvement project schedule and hydroelectric regulatory responsibilities through FY20. The requested amount was determined based on forecasted engineering services needs and work assignments.

 

Based upon the remaining capital needs, it is recommended that City Council approve Amendment No. 4 to the professional services agreement with Stantec, to provide additional Professional Engineering Services for the remaining life of the contract, through FY20. 

 

Stantec complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest, Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinance.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact:  These engineering services are to be funded from the appropriate operating and maintenance or capital improvement plan budget, for which services are rendered.
