TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF FEBRUARY 7, 2019

 

COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. Brian A. Perkovich, Executive Director

 

Title

Report on rejection of bids for Contract 19-610-11, Furnish and Deliver Two Diesel Step Van Trucks to the Stickney Water Reclamation Plant, estimated cost $320,000.00

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

On November 1, 2018, the Board of Commissioners authorized the Director of Procurement and Materials Management to advertise for bids Contract 19-610-11, Furnish and Deliver Two Diesel Step Van Trucks to the Stickney Water Reclamation Plant. 

 

In response to a public advertisement of December 19, 2018, a bid opening was held on January 8, 2019.  The bid tabulation for this contract is:

 

                     PATSON, INC.                     $397,250.00

                                         

The sole bid, received by Patson, Inc., is approximately 24.1% over the District’s cost estimate and is considered too high for an award.  Therefore, this contract is rejected in the public’s best interest.  The Director of Procurement and Materials Management has informed Patson, Inc.

 

The Maintenance and Operations Department will modify the detailed specifications prior to re-advertising.

 

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 February 7, 2019
