AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           June 8, 2009

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with RTS Transformers for the re-gasket and processing of three transformers

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing an agreement with RTS Transformer, Inc. for the re-gasket and processing of three transformers for $49,500.00 with an owner contingency of $7,500.00 for transformer testing, if required.

 

Analysis:

On April 23, 2009, the Purchasing Division issued a bid for Re-gasket and Processing of Three Porter Transformers.  These transformers are located at the North Substation, Center Street Substation, and the Airport Substation.  RTS Transformer, Inc. had originally submitted a quote to the Electric Department in January of 2009; however, since the cost was greater than $25,000.00, the project was put out to bid.  Three bids were received and reviewed.  The Electric Department has evaluated all three bids and determined that RTS Transformer, Inc. has submitted the lowest, most responsive bid.

 

Since this equipment maintenance is essential to the performance of the transformers, and the Electric Department is familiar with RTS Transformer, Inc., who has done work for the City previously, Staff recommends approval of the attached agreement.
