AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 8, 2008

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager             

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a unit price agreement with Coffey Electrical Services, Inc. for the provision of electrical installation, maintenance and repair services on an as needed basis

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of a fixed unit price agreement with Coffey Electrical Services, Inc.

 

Analysis:

The purpose of this solicitation is to establish a fixed unit price agreement with a qualified firm to provide the City departments electrical installation, maintenance and repair services for commercial/residential (Group I), low voltage (data and voice) communication/network (Group II), and airport lighting (Group III).  

On May 26, 2008, the Purchasing Division issued Request for Proposal (RFP) number 80292 inviting interested and qualified firms to submit technical and price proposals for consideration and evaluation by the City.  On June 26, 2008, the City received qualification statements from five electrical service firms.  An evaluation committee consisting of staff from the Electric, Purchasing, Airport and Public Works departments evaluated the RFP’s.

 

Competing firms submitted technical proposals addressing their Management, Company Qualifications (background, experience, references and past projects), Staff (organizational structure, resumes, and references) and Company’s Approach to providing services required by the RFP.  Price proposals addressing hourly rates, overhead and profit mark-up for materials and rental equipment, and response time for routine and after hours calls were also required.  A summary of the unit prices submitted by each firm is attached for your review.

 

Not every firm offered to provide all three categories of electrical service; however, the results of the evaluations are outlined in the ranking list included here.

For each proposal evaluated, raw scores assigned by each member were totaled and converted to a ranking.  The rankings for each firm were totaled and then converted to an overall ordinal score.  Using this method has proven to minimize the effects of large variances in any one evaluators’ scoring.

 

Firms were advised in the RFP that hourly rates would be compared by using a sample project where a project manager and clerical labor (8 hours each) and a journeyman technician and an electrical apprentice (40 hours each) would be involved.  The project total for each vendor is included at the bottom of the attached Unit Price Summary.

 

Coffey Electrical Services, Inc. not only provided the most favorable price rate in all three Groups, but proposed the lowest overhead and profit mark-up rates, as well as, shortest response time for routine calls and tied for best response time to other than routine calls in all three Groups.

 

Options:

1.  Authorize execution of an Agreement with Coffey Electrical Services, Inc.; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The fiscal impact is unknown at this time.  As future projects are identified and budgeted commission approval will be sought when required.
