Title

Resolution to Increase Purchasing Authority on the General Services Agreement with Kennedy Industries, Inc. for Pump Maintenance and Repair Services by $55,995.58; increasing purchasing authority from $75,000.00 Annually to $130,995.58 for FY21. (RFP-18-11)

Memorandum

This memorandum and resolution requests approval for an increase in purchasing authority on the General Services Agreement with Kennedy Industries, Inc. for Pump Maintenance and Repair Services in the amount of $55,995.58 for FY21.

 

The Water Treatment Services Unit (WTSU) has over 60 pumps of various types that are used for the treatment and distribution of the City’s drinking water supply. These pumps require periodic maintenance and repair, and occasionally, emergency repair services.

 

The 3-year service contract approved by resolution R-18-210 is for $225,000 through FY21, with a purchasing authority of $75,000.00 annually, for 3 years.

 

To date we have a series of pumps that need maintenance and/or repairs including but not limited to EHS Motor #3, Barton Pump #2, Low Lift Pump #5, the Glen and Fuller Pump, South Industrial Pump #3, and North Campus Pump #2. In order to complete the maintenance and/or repairs of these motors/pumps, the Water Treatment Plant requests an increase in the purchasing authority for FY21 by $55,995.58, which is remaining value of the 3-year service contract.

 

It is therefore recommended that City Council approve the increase in purchasing authority for the General Services Agreement with Kennedy Industries, Inc. for Pump Maintenance and Repair Services in the amount of $55,995.58 for FY21.

 

Kennedy Industries, Inc. complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest, Non-discrimination, and Living Wage Ordinance(s).

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact:  The funding for these services is available in the approved FY21 Water Supply System operating budget.
