Title

Resolution to Approve an Amendment to the Purchase Order with Schindler Elevator Corporation for Maintenance, Inspection and Repair Services (Not to Exceed $10,000.00)

Memorandum

We recommend your approval of the attached resolution authorizing an amendment in an amount not to exceed $10,000.00 to the existing $25,000.00 purchase order, with Schindler Elevator Corporation, for a total amount not to exceed $35,000.00 to provide maintenance, inspection and repair services for the elevators located at City Hall, Justice Center and Fire Station #1 for FY21.

 

Each year, the Fleet & Facilities Unit solicits competitive quotes from a minimum of three qualified elevator contractors for the annual maintenance, inspection and repair contract and then issues a purchase order for that work. Historically, that purchase order is issued in an amount not to exceed $25,000.00 and actual costs remain below that amount.

 

Schindler Elevator Corporation was the successful bidder for these services in FY21. A significant repair of approximately $3,000.00 was required which will cause Facilities to exceed the existing $25,000.00 purchase order, thus requiring City Council approval.

 

Schindler Elevator Corporation is subject to the terms and conditions of the City’s standard purchase order.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact:  Adequate funding is available in the approved FY21 Facilities Operations and Maintenance budget. 

Schindler Elevator Corporation complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest, Living Wage, Prevailing Wage and Non-Discrimination ordinances
