Memorandum
Attached for your review and consideration is a resolution to approve a Professional Services Agreement with Magellan Advisors LLC in the amount of $334,550.00 for Fiber Optic & Conduit Design and Planning Services for the DDA District.

Fiscal/Budget Impact: This expenditure is planned for and budgeted in the FY2020 General Capital Improvements Fund budget under Capital projects.

The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Local Development Finance Authority (LDFA)'s Grant Agreement (Legistar 20-0326) is anticipated to reimburse the City for this budgeted expenditure. Our primary goal is to design a dense, sustainable, and flexible, fiber & conduit infrastructure foundation in the DDA District to accommodate connectivity and access for the community, and that will foster public safety, economic development, collaboration, and innovation. We also aim to integrate and remediate existing city infrastructure to enhance existing and new city services such as Traffic Control, Safety Services, Transportation, Environment Sustainability, Public and Community Services.

RFP19-29 was issued for Fiber Optic & Conduit Design and Planning Services for the DDA District, and proposals from five respondents were received. A team comprised of City staff members from the Information Technology Department and Transportation reviewed the proposals and selected Magellan Advisors LLC based on their professional qualifications, past experience, proposed work plan and fee quotation. Magellan was also the lowest cost bidder.

Magellan Advisors, LLC complies with the requirements of the City Living Wage and Non-Discrimination ordinances.
