DATE: 10/10/2017 REFERENCE NO.: **P-12108 LOG NAME: 13P17-0413 ANIMAL TECH CC CODE
CODE: P TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:  

Authorize Agreement with Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth, Inc., for Temporary Animal Shelter Technicians in an Annual Amount Up to $200,000.00 and Authorize Four Annual Renewal Options (ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS)


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize an Agreement with Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth, Inc., for temporary animal shelter technicians in an annual amount up to $200,000.00 and authorize four annual renewal options.

 
DISCUSSION:

The Code Compliance Department maintains the Chuck Silcox Animal Care and Control Center that houses animals.  Under the proposed Agreement, the vendor will provide temporary workers for animal shelter technicians to perform animal care tasks and shelter upkeep to maintain a clean and disease free environment for impounded animals.  In order to procure these services, City staff issued an Invitation to Bid to 45 registered vendors.  

The Bid was advertised in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on August 2, 2017, August 9, 2017 and August 16, 2017.  The City received one bid.  See attached Bid Tabulation.

Staff recommends awarding a one-year contract to Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth, Inc.  The contract would provide for four one-year options to renew for $200,000.00 annually, however, the contract amount can be increased so long as the City approves the increase.  In addition, an administrative change order or increase may be made by the City Manager in the amount up to $50,000.00 and does not require specific City Council approval as long as sufficient funds have been appropriated.  

The bill rate for animal shelter technicians increased from $11.43 to $11.53 per hour.  Code Compliance staff reviewed the proposed pricing and certified that the prices offered by the recommended vendor are fair and reasonable.  

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.

Upon City Council approval, the Agreement shall begin on execution of the agreement and end one year from that date.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that funds are available in the current operating budget and that prior to an expenditure being made, the Code Compliance Department has the responsibility to validate the availability of funds.
