Staff recommends approval of Amendment No. 7 providing a one-year extension to the existing unit price contract with Hewitt Power and Communications for underground utility work on an as needed basis.
The current contract with Hewitt Power & Communications, Inc. (Hewitt) expires on December 31, 2009. If approved, the contract extension will allow continued construction of underground utilities in a timely fashion. The Electric Department is currently using this contract for underground utility construction related to the Perkins to Griffin project. A contract extension will allow the utility relocation project to be completed without any delays.
A bid will be issued next year to establish a new underground utility construction contract.
1. Approve the contract extension with Hewitt Power and Communications; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Construction services provided under this contract will be funded through the individual project authorizations, as budgeted.
