Staff recommends approval of Task Order No. 6 with Jones Edmunds and Associates to provide engineering services to complete the JPA documents for the Perkins to Griffin water line project for $75,000.00.
The City Commission approved an agreement with Jones Edmunds and Associates (JEA) to provide engineering services associated with the JPA during its regular meeting of December 14, 2009. That agreement was for $74,900, on a Time-and-Materials basis.
The task of conforming our documents and specifications to FDOT requirements has proven far more time-consuming than staff anticipated. In addition, after meetings and discussions with FDOT, some portions of the project required redesign – this was necessary in order to avoid what staff believed to be a potential to incur grossly excessive costs for Maintenance of Traffic and Pavement Restoration due to constraints imposed by FDOT. The original authorization has been used up by this work, so it becomes necessary to authorize JEA for additional work to complete the final documents.
It should be noted that JEA worked closely with staff during the redesign work; this cooperation produced a design that not only avoided the excessive costs noted above, but served to reduce the estimated construction costs from $1.7 million to $1.2 million.
The JPA process is in Phase III on the attached flowchart, so we are nearing the point of being able to finalize all of the drawings and specifications as required by FDOT. This proposal is presented as a Time-and-Materials, Not to Exceed fee.
1. Authorize the Agreement for $75,000.00; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There are sufficient budgeted funds available for this project to cover this expense.
