Agenda Title:

Council action is recommended to enter into price agreements (102-17) with Blue Springs Winwaterworks, Ferguson Enterprises, Schulte Supply Inc., and HD Supply Waterworks for Cast Ductile Iron Pipe and Fittings for the period of March 7, 2017 through February 28, 2018.  This agreement contains two, one-year renewal options.  Expenditures will not exceed budgeted amount.
Recommendations:

Council action is recommended to enter into price agreements. 

Background:

Price agreements establish set prices that remain in effect for a designated period of time. This allows City departments to use the agreements in the performance of their operation without requiring a bid each time the service or commodity is required. The Water Department uses Cast Ductile Iron Pipe & Fittings for the installation of, and repairs to, the City's water distribution system. It is important that materials may be obtained when needed to assure the system can be properly maintained.

The Purchasing Division issued an Invitation to Bid (ITB) for cast ductile iron pipe and fittings on January 17, 2017. Bids were received from Blue Springs Winwaterworks, Ferguson Enterprises, Schulte Supply Inc., and HD Supply Waterworks. Staff recommends award to the low bidder for each item. The bid tabulation is attached, showing the recommended breakout of award by vendor.

 

The ITB was posted as follows:

1.  Posted on the City’s website.

2. Broadcast 108 potential suppliers by Public Purchase, the City’s Internet-based e-procurement system; 19 accessed the Invitation to Bid.

3.  Posted on the Purchasing Division Twitter page.
