Staff evaluated the variation in bid pricing and obtained assurance from the contractor of contractor's ability to perform the work at the prices bid and within the time frame indicated. In their evaluation, staff considered: 1) The complexity and logistics of the project in that the gravity sewer is constructed deeper than what is standard and is in close proximity to other utilities, specifically overhead power lines; 2) The project is a live sewer and needs to be maintained at all times and the contractor will have to maintain continual access into the neighborhood for the residents; 3) These factors significantly affect the contractor's means and methods and the staging of the project. All of these variables will affect item cost which will vary by contractor.
The Public Works Department recommends award of the project to Pospiech Contracting, Inc.
On October 20, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners approved Budget Amendment #B-16-008/4 for the funding of this project.
