Staff recommends approval of Amendment No. 6 to provide a three-year contract extension with Hewitt P&C, Inc. for installation of underground utilities.
The current contract with Hewitt Power & Communications, Inc. (Hewitt) expires on December 12, 2006. Staff has asked Hewitt to provide a contract extension on the existing non-exclusive unit-price contract for installation of underground utilities. Hewitt has offered a three-year extension with a pricing adjustment to become effective on 1 January 2007 and annually thereafter. The first adjustment will be for a 3.5% increase. Each subsequent positive adjustment will be for the lesser of 3.5% or the percentage change in the unadjusted Consumer Price Index. The proposed schedule of prices for 2007 is attached.
If approved, the contract extension will allow continued construction of underground utilities in a timely fashion as appropriate. It will also limit future annual price increases to no more than 3.5%.
This is the sixth amendment to the original contract. Previous amendments have added services and provided a contract extension. This amendment will be the second three-year contract extension.
1. Approve the contract extension, or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Construction performed under this contract will be funded separately through individual project authorizations, as budgeted.
