Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to issue a purchase order and enter into an agreement with Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions, Inc., for the multi-year evergreen upgrade agreement of the distributed control system (DCS) networks with cybersecurity health assessment at the Stickney Water Reclamation Plant Service Area.  The services will be delivered before December 31, 2024.

 

Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions, Inc., the sole source provider of these services, has submitted pricing for the services required. Inasmuch as Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions, Inc., is the only source of the services required, nothing would be gained by advertising for bids (Section 11.4 of the Purchasing Act).

 

Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions, Inc. is registered and in good standing with the State of Illinois.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement (MPLA) and Affirmative Action Ordinance, Revised Appendix D and Appendix V are 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 Emerson Process Management Power & Water Solutions, Inc., in an amount not to exceed $5,465,834.00.

 

Funds for the 2022 expenditure, in the amount of $1,000,000.00, are available in Account 101-69000-612650. The estimated expenditure for 2023 is $2,200,000.00, and 2024 is $2,265,834.00. Funds for the 2023 and 2024 expenditures are contingent on the Board of Commissioners’ approval of the District’s budget for those years.

 

Requested, John P. Murray, Director of Maintenance and Operations

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

Respectfully Submitted, Barbara J. McGowan, Chairman Committee on Procurement
