Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Issue purchase order and enter into an agreement with AT&T Corp., for Point to Point Switched Ethernet Service upgrade at the Mainstream Pumping Station, in an amount not to exceed $15,002.76, Account 101-27000-612430, Requisition 1502113

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to issue a purchase order and enter into an agreement for Point to Point Switched Ethernet Service upgrade at the Mainstream Pumping Station, with AT&T Corp.  This purchase order will expire on September 4, 2019.

 

AT&T Corp. is the sole service provider of Point to Point Switched Ethernet Service to all District facilities.  Inasmuch as AT&T Corp. is the only source of supply for the services required, nothing would be gained by advertising for bids (Section 11.4 of the Purchasing Act). 

 

AT&T Corp. is registered and in good standing with the State of Illinois.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement is not applicable due to the specialized nature of the services required.

 

In view of the foregoing it is recommended that the Director of Procurement and Materials Management be authorized to issue a purchase order and enter into an agreement with AT&T Corp., in an amount not to exceed $15,002.76.

 

Funds are available in Account 101-27000-612430.

 

Requested, John Sudduth, Director of Information Technology, JS:SK:RP:EW:tm

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 20, 2018
