EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Recommendation to approve the selection committee’s ranking of Request for Professional Services (“RPS”) No. 18-7432-ME,Professional Services Library - Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Technology Category,” and authorize staff to begin contract negotiations with the top five ranked firms, so that proposed agreements may be brought back for the Board’s consideration at a subsequent meeting.

 

 

OBJECTIVETo obtain approval of the selection committee’s ranking of consultants so that staff can negotiate contracts pertaining to professional services to be used by County departments to facilitate projects under $200,000 for operations and capital project implementation. 

 

CONSIDERATIONS:  This RPS seeks consultants who will enter into professional service contracts to provide small supplemental architectural and engineering services to the County’s Project Managers on mechanical, electrical, plumbing and technology engineering projects.  The eventual contracts that will be issued under this RPS will be used for professional services on projects that are less than $200,000, and where the resulting construction value is under two million dollars.  With the assistance of operating staff, the Procurement Services Division developed a solicitation for these services consistent with Florida’s Consultants’ Competitive Negotiation Act, Section 287.055, Florida Statutes (the “CCNA”).

 

On December 13, 2018, the Procurement Services Division released notices of RPS No. 18-7432-ME.  Staff notified 17,440 firms, 119 interested firms downloaded the solicitation information, and the County received nine (9) proposals by the February 1, 2019 deadline.  Staff determined that all nine firms are responsive and responsible.  A selection committee met on September 25, 2019, and scored each of the proposals and ranked the firms as follows:

 

Company Name

Final Ranking

Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc.

1

McKim & Creed, Inc.

2

4

Stantec Consulting Services, Inc.

5

Diversified Technology Consultants, Inc.

6

Capital Consulting Solutions, LLC.

7

AW Solutions, Inc.

8

Global Sanchez, Inc.

The selection committee determined that five firms are sufficient to address the volume of work that will arise under this agreement.

 

In accordance with the CCNA, staff is seeking Board direction to begin negotiations with the top five ranked firms: (1) Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc., (2) McKim & Creed, Inc., (3) Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, Inc., (4) Jenkins Maag Associates, LLC, and (5) Stantec Consulting Services, Inc., and if necessary, continue negotiating with the next available firms in ranked order until acceptable terms are reached. Proposed contracts will be brought back to the Board for approval at a subsequent meeting.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  Funds are available in various department budgets that use these agreements.
