COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. Brian Perkovich, Executive Director

 

Title

Authority to increase purchase order and amend the agreement with Ameex Technologies Corporation, for Contract 18-RFP-05 Application Development Consulting, in an amount of $20,000.00, from an amount of $50,000.00, to an amount not to exceed $70,000.00, Account 101-27000-612430, Purchase Order 3100709

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

On May 3, 2018, the Board of Commissioners authorized the Director of Procurement and Materials Management to issue purchase order and enter into an agreement for Contract 18-RFP-05 Application Development Consulting with Ameex Technologies Corporation in an amount not to exceed $50,000.00.  The contract was to expire on March 30, 2019.

 

This contract has no prior change orders.

 

An increase in purchase order value is requested to provide additional funding for application development consulting services given the Information Technology project portfolio in 2019. 

 

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 increase the purchase order and amend the agreement for Contract 18-RFP-05 in an amount of $20,000.00 (40% of the current contract value), from an amount of $50,000.00, to an amount not to exceed $70,000.00.

 

Funds are available in Account 101-27000-612430.

 

Requested, John H. Sudduth, Director of Information Technology, JHS:RA:ra

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 February 7, 2019
