Dear Sir:

 

On May 5, 2022, the Board of Commissioners authorized the Director of Procurement and Materials Management to advertise for bids, Contract 22-634-11, Services to Inspect and Repairs to Cathodic Protection Systems.

 

In response to a public advertisement of July 6, 2022, a bid opening was held on July 26, 2022.  The bid tabulation for this contract is:

 

PIPING AND CORROSION SPECIALTIES, INC.                     $496,932.00

K2 CORROSION ENGINEERING LLC                     $568,250.00

 

Piping and Corrosion Specialists, Inc., the lowest responsible bidder, is proposing to perform the contract in accordance with the specifications.  The estimated cost for this contract was $560,506.00, placing the bid of $496,932.00 approximately 11.3 percent below the estimate.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement (MPLA) was not included in this contract due to the specialized nature of the services involved.

 

The Affirmative Action Ordinance, Revised Appendix D was not included in this contract due to the specialized nature of the work involved and the lack of availability of MBE/WBE/SBE/VBE subcontractors who can provide the inspection and repair services.

 

The contract will employ approximately three to five (3-5) people for the services required.

 

In view of the foregoing, it is recommended that the Director of Procurement and Materials Management be authorized to award Contract 22-634-11, to Piping and Corrosion Specialties, Inc., in an amount not to exceed $496,932.00, subject to the contractor furnishing a performance bond in form satisfactory to the Law Department and approved by the Director of Procurement and Materials Management.

 

The work shall commence upon approval of the Contractor’s Bond and shall terminate forty-two (42) months thereafter, or upon expenditure of available funds, whichever occurs sooner. 

 

Funds for the 2022 expenditures, in the amount of $40,200.00, are available in Accounts 101-67000, 68000, 69000-612600.  The estimated expenditures for 2023, 2024, 2025 and 2026 are $217,437.00, $117,153.00, $117,153.00, and $4,989.00 respectively.  Funds for the 2023, 2024, 2025 and 2026 expenditures are contingent on the Board of Commissioners’ approval of the District’s budget for that year.
