COUNCIL ACTION:  Approved on 4/17/2018 

DATE: 4/17/2018 REFERENCE NO.: **P-12188 LOG NAME: 13P18-0076 REJECT FLOW MONITORING CC WATER
CODE: P TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:   Authorize Rejection of All Responses to Request for Proposals 18-0076 for Citywide Temporary Flow Monitoring for the Water Department  (ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS)

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize the rejection of all responses to Request for Proposals 18-0076 for Citywide temporary flow monitoring for the Water Department.

 
DISCUSSION:

The purpose  of this Mayor and Council Communication is to authorize the rejection of all responses received for Request for Proposals (RFP) 18-0076 for Citywide temporary flow monitoring for the Water Department.

This bid was advertised in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on November 29, 2017 and January 10, 2018.  The City of Fort Worth received two sealed proposals.

It was discovered that Purchasing staff did not meet the notice requirement per Section 252.041 of the Texas Local Government Code. State competitive bidding laws require advertising to occur in a two consecutive week time period and in this case, the advertisement dates were not consecutive. Therefore, Staff recommends rejecting all proposals. Purchasing staff will restart the bidding process and re-advertise.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that this action will have no material effect on City funds.
