AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

Meeting Date:           November 27, 2006

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager 

 

Subject:                      Purchase Requisition #37419 to Checkpoint Systems, Inc. for the Leesburg Public Library

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of purchase requisition #37419 to Checkpoint Systems, Inc. for the Leesburg Public Library for $63,960.

 

Analysis:

This purchase is to complete the security system related to the self checkout tags used in the library materials.  The items being purchased will complete the system by adding the security monitor to detect any materials trying to be removed from the library without having been checked out.

 

This is a single source purchase to Checkpoint Systems, Inc.  These additional components must be purchased from Checkpoint Systems in order to be compatible with components already owned by the City, as well as the Lake County library system and its member libraries.  Purchase from this vendor insures that materials from other library system members can be shared by and with the Leesburg Public Library.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the purchase as stated above for $63,960; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funds were budgeted last fiscal year for this purchase.  The funds have been rolled forward to the 2007 fiscal year and are available for this purchase.
