GROUP A:  HARDWARE (MISCELLANEOUS)

LIBERTY FASTENER COMPANY                     *$26,825.58

*corrected total

Eight hundred and fifty seven (857) companies were notified of the contract being advertised and twenty eight (28) companies requested specifications.

 

Liberty Fastener Company, provided the low bid for Group A of this contract. However, the bid of $26,825.58 is approximately 41.2 percent above the estimate of $19,000.00 and is considered too high for award. Therefore, this bid is rejected in the public’s best interest and will be re-bid at a future date. The Director of Procurement and Materials Management has notified Liberty Fastener Company of this action.

 

Liberty Fastener Company, the lowest responsible bidder for Groups B and C is proposing to perform the contract in accordance with the specifications.  The estimated cost for Groups B and C of this contract was $37,000.00, placing their bid of $33,755.33 approximately 8.8 percent below the estimate.

 

Liberty Fastener Company provided the low bid for Group D of this contract. However, the bid of $7,356.00 is approximately 145 percent above the estimate of $3,000.00 and is considered too high for award.  Therefore, this bid is rejected in the public’s best interest and the items in this group will be purchased on the open market. The Director of Procurement and Materials Management has notified Liberty Fastener Company of this action.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement (MPLA) is not applicable to this contract because it is primarily a furnish and deliver contract.

 

The Affirmative Action Ordinance, Revised Appendix D is not included in this contract because it is primarily a furnish and deliver contract.

In view of the foregoing, it is recommended that the Director of Procurement and Materials Management be authorized to award Contract 18-056-11, Groups B and C to Liberty Fastener Company, in an amount not to exceed $33,755.33.
