AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 12, 2009

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with Utility Technicians, Inc. for hydro-pneumatic tank rehabilitation services at the Airport Water Plant.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of an agreement for hydro-pneumatic tank rehabilitation services at the Airport Water Plant with Utility Technicians, Inc. for $42,190.00.

 

Analysis:

The Water Plant located at the Leesburg International Airport is experiencing problems with the hydro-pneumatic tanks.  The tanks are old and one tank’s condition required it to be removed from service several months ago.  These tanks are currently not adequate to provide the necessary pressures in this part of the water system.

 

Invitation to Bid 80211 was previously issued for this project. The original specifications called for the replacement with new tanks, accessories and equipment installed.  The lowest bid of $153,800.00 was significantly higher than the amount budgeted for this project.

 

The Purchasing Division cancelled the original ITB 80211.  Environmental Services reevaluated the project looking for alternatives to using new tanks.  An unused tank at Plantation was identified as a possible option.  The tank was inspected and found to be serviceable and could be used at the Airport Water Plant.  Based on this alternative, the Purchasing Division worked with Environmental Services to revise the original specifications.

 

This project requires replacing one of the Airport tanks with a tank currently not used and located at the Plantation water plant.  This Plantation tank will be moved to the Airport Water Plant and refurbished along with the one serviceable tank at the Airport.  Refurbishing will include replacing all valves, probing rods, and accessories, as well as inspection, sand blasting, washing, coating, disinfecting, and placing the two serviceable tanks into operation.  Disposal of the one unserviceable tank is also included.


 

On November 3, 2008, the Purchasing Division issued ITB 90011 for the rehabilitation of the tanks and equipment at the Airport Water Plant.  Staff advertised the solicitation in the local newspaper and distributed directly to 11 firms.  On December 3, 3008, staff received four sealed responses.  The Purchasing Division has reviewed all responses and deemed Utility Technicians, Inc. as the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.  Environmental Services concurs with my recommendation to award the bid to Utility Technicians, Inc. and enter into an Agreement with said firm.

 

A summary of the bids received and the vendors’ primary location is included.  The detailed bid tabulation is attached for your review.
