Staff recommends approval of Requisition 44109 to Siemens Industry Inc. for the annual purchase of hydrogen peroxide for the Environmental Services Department for $25,000.00.
The Environmental Services Wastewater Division uses the chemical hydrogen peroxide in lift stations for odor control. Lift Station #84 currently has equipment provided by Siemens in place to monitor and dispense the chemical hydrogen peroxide when required to control odor.
This purchase was not competitively bid. Staff has compared our current price of $0.429 per pound to that paid by Manatee County, another Siemens Customer. Based on the quantity used by the City, this price is comparable to that paid by Manatee County. Siemens has provided the monitoring and dispensing equipment at no additional cost to the City. The equipment provided by Siemens has been in place at the lift station for several years.
1. Approve the purchase request to Siemens Industry Inc. for $25,000; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The Environmental Services Department has budgeted $25,000.00 for this purchase in the current fiscal year.
