Staff recommends approval of Change Order 1 to Purchase Order 527306 to Booth & Associates, Inc. for additional costs for the electrical engineer to test and adjust the rewound/rebuilt transformer at Airport Substation for an additional amount of $8,050.00. This makes the total cost of services $37,900.00.
On February 14, 2011, the Commission approved the original amount of $29,850.00 to Booth & Associates, Inc. for payment for engineering services related to the commissioning of the rewound/rebuilt transformer at Airport Substation.
Since the transformer was completely rebuilt and updated, it contains several new monitoring systems and all new relays that needed to be tested and adjusted. The original scope of work provided for 40 hours of labor, however, a total of 61 hours were needed to complete this project. To assist in the commissioning of the transformer, the engineer also provided wiring of new equipment and assisted staff in other essential wiring, resolved errors in the original substation drawings, captured the drawing errors on the field mark-ups and resolved errors in the transformer CTs. This additional work has already been completed in order to not delay bringing the rewound transformer back on-line.
1. Approve Change Order #1 to Purchase Order #527036 to Booth & Associates, Inc. for an
additional amount of $8,050.00; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funds are available in the budget for this purpose and is grant reimbursable through the DOE Smartgrid project.
