Staff recommends execution of the agreement with Osmose Utilities Services, Inc for $57,200.00 for Electric Utility Pole Inspections.
The Florida Public Utilities Commission requires electric utilities to inspect their poles for damage and fatigue. Any poles found to have defects must be repaired or replaced. The City of Leesburg has chosen to piggyback an existing contract between Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. and the Orlando Utility Commission (OUC). Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. provides pole inspection service and can also make any necessary repairs authorized by the Electric Department.
This agreement will be a unit price agreement with the initial purchase covering the inspection for only a portion of the poles in the Leesburg electric system. This purchase amount is for inspection services only and does not include any necessary repairs that may be identified.
The Purchasing Division has reviewed the bid, bid award, and contract between Osmose and OUC. The contract was openly and competitively bid and meets the requirements necessary for a piggyback agreement.
1. Approve execution of the piggyback agreement with Osmose Utilities Services, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The funds for this service have been budgeted and are available in the current fiscal year in the account listed. This contract will be used again during the 2008 fiscal year. The department will seek commission approval at that time for future work to be performed.
