Title

Resolution to Approve the Purchase of Electric Vehicle Chargers from Chargepoint Inc. (Sourcewell - $20,347.00)

Memorandum

We recommend your approval of the attached resolution authorizing the issuance of a purchase order to Chargepoint Inc. for the purchase of electric vehicle chargers for the building department in the amount of $20,347.00.  The purchase includes five (5) dual port chargers and related accessories to support the ten (10) additional electric vehicles being requested for use by inspectors in the Construction Fund.

 

While the value of this purchase would not normally trigger action by City Council, this will be the second purchase of chargers from Chargepoint this fiscal year and the total of these combined purchases will exceed the $25,000.00 threshold for City Council action. The first purchase was also in the amount of $20,347.00 for a combined total of $40,694.00. 

 

Chargepoint Inc. was awarded the contract for EV chargers and related accessories by the Sourcewell cooperative purchasing program (contract # 051017-CPI). The City has been very satisfied with the operation and functionality of our existing Chargepoint chargers.

 

Budget Impact:  Funding for the purchase of these chargers has been included in the FY20 Construction Fund budget. The installation cost for these chargers, which is not included in this purchase, has also been budgeted in the FY20 Construction Fund budget.

 

Chargepoint Inc. complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest and Non-Discrimination ordinances.
