Manatee County Code of Laws.
On March 24, 2015, the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved the purchase of four (4) clean diesel thirty-five foot buses to support the operations of Manatee County Area Transit for a total purchase price of $1,729,016 ($432,254/unit) pursuant to the Central Florida Regional Transit Authority Consortium contract with the lead agency being LYNX in Orlando.
The contract was entered into pursuant to a competitive procurement process, fully compliant with FTA requirements, resulting in an award to Gillig, LLC.
Change Order 1 provides for changing the High Definition Display (HDD) video system from 1 Terabyte (TB) to 2TB, including a removal trash container and a specialized drain adapter for each of the four buses. This change order increases the value of each bus by $9,037.25 for a change order total of $36,149.00.
Change Order 2 provides for alterations to the original seating configuration for the buses to comply with ADA requirements. This change order increases the value of each bus by $3,232.00 for a change order total of $12,928.00.
The combined impact of the Change Orders increase the cost by $49,077 or $12,269.25 per bus, thereby bringing the unit cost per bus to $444,523.25. A review of recent bus purchases by Transit Fiscal staff indicates pricing is within the competitive range and is below the midpoint of $445,537.
