Meeting Date:           November 13, 2012


From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager


Subject:                      Purchase request 44109 to Siemens Industries Inc. for the annual purchase of hydrogen peroxide.



Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of purchase request 44109 to Siemens Industries Inc. for the annual purchase of hydrogen peroxide for the Public Works Department for $25,000.00.



The Public Works Department uses the chemical hydrogen peroxide in lift station 84 for odor control. Siemens’ equipment is installed at lift station 84 to monitor sewage conditions and automatically dispense the chemical when required to control odor.


Siemens has provided the monitoring and dispensing equipment at no additional cost to the City for several years.  In exchange for the equipment, the City purchases the chemical from Siemens.  The price paid of $0.429 per pound is the same price paid by Manatee County on a competitively bid contract.



1.  Approve the purchase request to Siemens Industry Inc. for $25,000; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate


Fiscal Impact: 

The current budget includes $25,000.00 for this purchase.
