CODE: P TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:  

Authorize Amendment to Existing Non-Exclusive Purchase Agreements with Smith Temporaries Inc., dba Cornerstone Staffing, Abacus Service Corporation, 22nd Century Staffing Inc., and Premier Staffing Source, Inc., d/b/a Texas Premier Staffing Source Inc., for Temporary Employment Services for All City Departments to increase the Annual Amount by $300,000.00 for a new Total Annual Amount Up to $1,500,000.00 (ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS)


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council authorize an amendment to the existing Non-Exclusive Purchase Agreements with Smith Temporaries Inc., d/b/a Cornerstone Staffing, Abacus Service Corporation, 22nd Century Staffing Inc., and Premier Staffing Source, Inc., d/b/a Texas Premier Staffing Source Inc., for temporary employment services for all City departments to increase the original annual amount by $300,000.00 for a new total annual amount up to $1,500,000.00 per year.

 
DISCUSSION:

On February 03, 2015, the City Council approved (M&C P-11729) a non-exclusive Agreement with multiple vendors for the combined total amount up to $1,200,000.00 for the first year and authorized renewal terms at the City's discretion.

Staff has determined that an additional amount of $300,000.00 is needed to provide services for the remainder of the current term and remaining renewals, if exercised, to meet the departments' needs. The additional spending authority will allow the departments the ability to continue to provide temporary employment services to support vacated positions by City employees on a temporary basis until those positions are filled. As staffing needs arise, Staff will notify the agencies of the needs and requirements. Under these Non-Exclusive Agreements, the department will request services according to cost and availability. The total spending authority per year will be $1,500,000.00, but the increased spending authority, $300,000.00, requested through this M&C will only apply to Smith Temporaries Inc., d/b/a Cornerstone Staffing, Abacus Service Corporation, 22nd Century Staffing Inc., and Premier Staffing Source, Inc., d/b/a Texas Premier Staffing Source Inc. The remaining vendors awarded under the previous M&C will still be eligible for departments to use until the previously authorized amount of $1,200,000.00 is reached.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that funds are available in the current operating budgets, as appropriated, of the participating departments. Prior to an expenditure being made, the participating departments have the responsibility to validate the availability of funds.
