Staff recommends approval of the agreement with Jones Edmunds and Associates to provide engineering services associated with the Perkins to Griffin water line project for $74,900.00.
The City Commission approved a FDOT Utility Work by Highway Contractor Agreement during its regular meeting of November 23, 2009. This agreement is commonly referred to as a “JPA.” The JPA agreement requires that drawings and bid specifications be conformed to FDOT standards, since the project will now be bid by FDOT and administered under FDOT’s contract rules and procedures. The details of this work are described further in the attached proposal and flow chart.
Staff recommends that Jones Edmunds perform these services since they have been involved in this project for some three years and are the engineers of record for design and permitting of this project. This will minimize costs of this additional work.
The proposal includes three tasks. The City has requested that FDOT waive one of these tasks. However, this proposal assumes the worst case and is presented as a Time-and-Materials, Not-to-Exceed fee. If Task 3 is not necessary, we will not be charged for it.
1. Authorize the Agreement for $74,900.00; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
A budget adjustment will be processed to use available Renewal & Replacement funds for this purpose..
