From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a professional services master agreement with Hanson Professional Services, Inc. for airport related projects

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of an Agreement for professional engineering services master agreement with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.

 

Analysis:

The purpose is to enter into a multi-year Agreement with an engineering firm that has been deemed the most qualified by an evaluation committee to provide engineering services on a continuing basis for airport related projects.

 

Florida Statute 287.055 allows municipalities to enter into a continuing services agreement with a firm whereby the firm provides professional services to the municipality for projects in which the estimated construction cost of each individual project under the contract does not exceed $2 million. In addition the fees charged for professional services for each study under the contract cannot exceed $200,000.

 

The Purchasing Division issued Request for Qualifications (RFQ) 100113.  Responses were received from seven firms and evaluated in the manner prescribed by Florida Statute 287.055.

 

The evaluation committee chairperson has confirmed Hanson Professional Services, Inc. as the top ranked firm.  The Purchasing Division requested a schedule of fees from Hanson.  The schedule of fees is reasonable and has been accepted and incorporated into the attached agreement.

 

The initial term of the resulting agreement is 3-years with the option for 3 one year extensions.  As a standard term of all City agreements, the City has the option to terminate the agreement at any time.  All work to be performed under the continuing services master agreement by Hanson equal to or more than $25,000 will be presented to commission for approval in the form of a task order.
