TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 6, 2018

 

COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Report on rejection of bids for Contract 18-707-21, Roof Replacement at the Hanover Park Water Reclamation Plant, estimated cost $490,000.00

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

On May 17, 2018, the Board of Commissioners authorized the Director of Procurement and Materials Management to advertise for bids, Contract 18-707-21, Roof Replacement at the Hanover Park Water Reclamation Plant. 

 

In response to a public advertisement of July 11, 2018, a bid opening was held on August 7, 2018.  The bid tabulation for this contract is:

 

                     L MARSHALL INC.                     $762,000.00

                     

Six hundred fifty-one (651) companies were notified of this contract being advertised and twenty-three (23) companies requested specifications.

                     

A review of the bid submitted by L. Marshall Inc., revealed that the bid is approximately 55.5 percent over the contract estimate and is considered too high for award.  Therefore, the bid is rejected in the public’s best interest.  The Director of Procurement and Materials Management has informed L Marshall Inc., of this action.

 

The Maintenance and Operations Department will not re-advertise the contract and will pursue the project under JOC.

 

Recommended, Darlene A. LoCascio, Director of Procurement and Materials Management, DAL:SEB:cm

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
