COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Issue purchase order and enter into an agreement with J.B. Systems, Inc., to Provide District-Wide On-Site Mainsaver Software Training for 80 Employees, for the District’s Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), in an amount not to exceed $14,925.00, Account 101-69000-601100, Requisition 1499762

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to issue a purchase order and enter into an agreement with J. B. Systems, Inc., to provide software training for 80 District employees for the District’s Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS).  The District-wide CMMS is the primary tool used by District maintenance managers to initiate, organize, and track all maintenance performed by every trade, at all levels. 

 

J. B. Systems, Inc., is the sole source provider for this service and has submitted pricing for the required training.  Inasmuch as J. B. Systems, Inc., is the sole source for this proprietary software training, nothing would be gained by advertising for bids (Section 11.4 of the Purchasing Act).

 

J. B. Systems, Inc., is registered and in good standing with the State of Illinois.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement (MPLA) 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 J. B. Systems, Inc., in an amount not to exceed $14,925.00.

 

Funds are available in account 101-69000-601100.

 

Requested, Sergio E. Serafino, Acting Director of Maintenance and Operations

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

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
