Title

Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 1 to the Professional Services Agreement with Tetra Tech of Michigan, PC, for Water Treatment Professional Engineering Services ($550,000.00 increase, total contract $1,050,000.00)

Memorandum

This memorandum and resolution requests approval of Amendment No. 1 to the professional services agreement for professional engineering services with Tetra Tech of Michigan, PC (Tetra Tech).  Council approved a professional services agreement for $500,000.00 through FY23 with Tetra Tech in June 2020 as part of Resolution No. R-20-168.

 

The City is seeking to amend the professional services agreement with Tetra Tech to accommodate additional professional engineering service needs over the remaining duration of the contract.  The task-based contract is effective FY21 through FY23.  Tetra Tech is currently supporting Public Services on numerous projects within the Water Treatment Services Unit (WTSU), including the Sentinel Monitoring Wells project, Midtown Booster Station evaluation, and Bleach Tank Replacement Design. In addition, Tetra Tech continues to provide on-site construction inspection and administration support on the 2018 Architectural and Structural Repairs construction phase, Filter Pipe Gallery Coating project, SCADA Upgrades, as well as miscellaneous maintenance projects. Tetra Tech 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.  Tetra Tech’s longevity and experience in providing support on projects and assistance to the City as described makes them indispensable as partners in continuing this work.

 

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 in order to maintain the aggressive capital improvement project schedule through FY23. 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. 1 to the professional services agreement with Tetra Tech, to provide additional Professional Engineering Services for the remaining life of the contract, through FY23. 

 

Tetra Tech complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest, Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact: These engineering services are to be funded from the approved FY22 Water Supply System Operations and Maintenance budget, Parks Maintenance and Capital Improvement Millage, the General Fund operating budget and the appropriate capital budget, for which services are rendered. Engineering services in FY23 will be funded from subsequent annual Operating and Capital Budgets; if approved by City Council. Tasks will be assigned on as-needed basis to the appropriate budget.
