On September 22, 2008, the Purchasing Division issued Request for Proposals (RFP) number 80472 inviting interested and qualified firms to submit technical and price proposals for consideration and evaluation by the City.  On October 23, 2008, the City received qualification statements and pricing proposals from five electrical service firms with experience in airfield lighting.

 


 

An evaluation committee consisting of staff from the Airport and Electric departments evaluated the qualifications and price proposals of the four firms that were compliant with all the RFP’s requirements.  The competing firm’s technical proposals addressed their Similar Project Experience and References, Design Concept, Approach/Scheduling which included information regarding resumes, and references, organizational structure, that will be available to the firms in providing performance of work as required by the RFP.  Price proposals were also required.

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.

 

The Technical/Qualification proposals submitted by Electric Services, Inc. (ESI) and the H. L. Pruitt Corporation (HPC) were both ranked number 1 by the technical evaluation panel. However, ESI proposed the most favorable overall price of $548,986.79 of the four firms for all the work.  ESI’s price for the three sites that can be completed with available funding is $62,482.82 less than HPC.

 

Precision Approach, LLC did not submit the required Bid Bond causing them to be nonresponsive and eliminated for the evaluation process.

 

The base amount of the agreement with Electric Services, Inc. is $315,602.18 with an owners’ contingency of $50,922.82.  The contingency is the difference between the balance of grant funds and the cost to upgrade runway 3-21 and taxiways B and J.  The contingency will be used for additional miscellaneous lighting such as directional signage and precision approach path indicators (PAPI).

 

Options:

1.  Authorize execution of an Agreement with Electric Services, Inc. for a total of $366,525.00; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 


 

Fiscal Impact:

The City’s portion of $73,305 for construction will be funded from the Local Option Sales Tax.  This amount will be transferred to the capital projects fund.
