Agenda Title:

Council action is recommended to issue a purchase order to Apache Industrial United, in the amount of $175,409.00  to replace the protective coating system on the interior and exterior of Filter No. 3 at the Courtney Bend Water Plant  for the Water Department.

Staff recommends approval to issue a purchase order.

The Water Department needs to replace the Filter No. 3 protective coating systems inside and out as part of a larger renovation project. Replacement of the protective coating system protects the steel structure of the filter, preventing corrosion, and damage. The filter requires renovation to maintain and extend the filter’s service life. Filter No. 3 provides the Courtney Bend Water Plant 4 million gallons per day filtering capacity. It, along with the other 13 filters of the Courtney Bend Water Plant, is vital to the Water Department’s ability to provide potable water to the City.


The Procurement Division issued an Invitation to Bid (ITB) on May 23, 2017. Four acceptable bids were received and opened on June 7, 2017. Apache Industrial United submitted the lowest and best bid, meeting all minimum requirements of the ITB.  A bid tabulation is attached.


Approval of this item authorizes the Purchasing Manager to issue change orders up to a total of ten (10) percent of the original authorized amount for each order, providing appropriations are available.


The ITB was published on Public Purchase, the City's e-procurement website; 72 potential bidders were notified; 23 accessed the ITB.

The ITB was also published on the Procurement Division Twitter site.
