The Animal Care and Control Division will use these cage materials to construct 77 animal cages at the Chuck Silcox Animal Shelter.
The Request for Proposals (RFP) consisted of detailed specifications describing the types of cages needed and delivery.
RFP ADVERTISEMENT - This RFP was advertised in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on November 2, 2016, November 9, 2016 and November 16, 2016. Nineteen vendors were solicited from the purchasing database system; one bid was received.
PRICE ANALYSIS - The City has no history for the purchase of these types of cages. Staff reviewed the prices and determined the prices to be fair and reasonable.
M/WBE - A waiver of the goal for MBE/SBE subcontracting requirements was requested by the Purchasing Division and approved by the M/WBE Office, in accordance with the BDE Ordinance, because the purchase of goods or services is from sources where subcontracting or supplier opportunities are negligible.
