Staff recommends the approval of purchase request 44263 to Physio-Control, Inc. for the total amount of $87,719.47.
Currently the Fire Department has four LifePak 12 Monitor/Defibrillators that are over ten years old and near the end of their functional life. The department is requesting the purchase of three monitors/defibrillators to replace these older units. One LifePak 12 will be upgraded and used as a backup. The cost of the LifePak 12 upgrade and total cost will be offset with the trade-in of three existing LifPak 12, trade-in total of $10,500.
Purchasing staff recommend this be approved as a Sole Source purchase to Physio-Controls, Inc. for the reasons detailed here. There are other monitors/defibrillators for responders on the market; however, the Fire Department requests the LifePak 15 be purchased from Physio-Control, Inc. to maintain equipment standardization within the Leesburg Fire Department and maintain continuity with Lake County Fire. Purchase of the LifePak 15 will provide familiarity among the firefighters that use this equipment. While the LifePak 15 is a newer model than the LifePak 12 currently used, the controls, layout, and functionality will be identical to the other LifePak 15 monitor/defibrillator the department currently has.
1. Approve the purchase request to Physio-Control, Inc. or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The total purchase price of $87,719.47 is available in the account listed. The department has budgeted $90,000.00 for this purchase and upgrade.
