Council action to issue a purchase order.


The City of Independence, Missouri’s Water Pollution Control Department has a Pump Station in the City of Sugar Creek which performs a preliminary screening process of breaking down stormwater wastes before the wastes reach the Rock Creek Treatment Plant at 9600 Norledge. There is a staircase that is on the outside of this station that is in need of replacement due to age and weather conditions, which have eroded the integrity of the staircase.


The Procurement Division issed a Request for Proposals (RFP) on March 26, 2019, for the Replacement of the Sugar Creek Pump Station Staircase. The RFP was published through the Public Purchase e-procurement website, which notified three-hundred four (304) potential respondents; thirty-five (35) accessed the RFP.


Two (2) proposals were received on April 23, 2019. The respondents were Janik Group LLC and Mega Industries. Janik Group’s proposal was non-responsive because of their failure to provide information on the evaluation criteria of Timeline Construction schedule and completion timeline. Further review by staff indicated the proposal from Mega Industries met all the criteria and was within budget. The evaluation criteria were  Contractors & Sub-Contractors Experience and Qualifications; Timeline Construction schedule and completion timeline and Price. Mega Industries proposal of $139,800 is recommended as a value provider for this service.


This project is funded out of account 7030-5406 (Other Improvements) for the Water Pollution Control Department.
