TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 6, 2018

 

COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

 

Authority to decrease Contract 14-677-11, Overhead Door Repair, to Builders Chicago Corporation, in an amount of $1,098.81 from an amount of $182,433.68 to an amount not to exceed $181,334.87, Accounts 101-67000/68000/69000-612680/623130, Purchase Order 5001492

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

On December 18, 2014, the Board of Commissioners authorized the Director of Procurement and Materials Management to award Contract 14-677-11, Overhead Door Repair, to Builders Chicago Corporation, in an amount not to exceed $222,405.00. The contract expired on January 6, 2018.

 

As of August 15, 2018, the attached list of change orders has been approved. The effect of these change orders resulted in a decrease in an amount of $39,971.32 from the original amount awarded of $222,405.00. The current contract value is $182,433.68. The prior approved change orders reflect an approximate 18.0% decrease to the original contract value.

 

A decrease in contract value is being requested for 2018 because the need for overhead door repair at the Stickney Water Reclamation Plant was less than anticipated, and to close Group A of the contract.

 

This change order is in compliance with the Illinois Criminal Code since the change is due to circumstances not reasonably foreseeable at the time the contract was signed, and is in the best interest of the District.

 

It is hereby recommended that the Board of Commissioners authorize the Director of Procurement and Materials Management to execute a change order to decrease Contract 14-677-11, in an amount of $1,098.81 (less than 1% of the current contract value) from an amount of $182,433.68 to an amount not to exceed $181,334.87.

 

Funds will be restored to Accounts 101-69000-612680/623130.

 

Requested, Thomas M. Conway, Acting Director of Maintenance and Operations, BAP:SO’C:MAG:JR:SSG

Recommended, Darlene A. LoCascio, Director of Procurement and Materials Management

Respectfully Submitted, Barbara J. McGowan, Chairman Committee on Procurement

Disposition of this agenda item will be documented in the official Regular Board Meeting Minutes of the Board of Commissioners for September 6, 2018
