INSPECTION, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE OF FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS, FIRE PUMPS AND BACK FLOW PREVENTERS, GROUPS A AND B; CONTRACT AWARD TO AEGIS FIRE AND INTEGRATED SERVICES, LLC AND CINTAS FIRE PROTECTION Recommendation That the Duval County School Board approve a source of service contract for Inspection, Repair and Maintenance of Fire Sprinkler Systems, Fire Pumps and Back Flow Preventers at various locations throughout the district with Cintas Fire Protection for Group A and Aegis Fire and Integrated Services, LLC for Group B for the period March, 2017 through December 31, 2018. That the Duval County School Board authorizes the Chairman and the Superintendent to affix their signatures to the agreements upon approval as to legal form and sufficiency upon approval by the Office of Legal Services. That the Duval County School Board delegate authority to the Superintendent or his designee to renew the contract for subsequent years provided the terms and conditions are essentially the same as those at the time of the award and funds are available for the additional period. There are three (3) potential two year renewals. Description This is a request to provide a source of service contract for Inspection, Repair and Maintenance of Fire Sprinkler Systems, Fire Pumps and Back Flow Preventers at various facilities throughout the district, including all schools, maintenance stations, and main administration building. The district issued a competitive solicitation that was coordinated through the Office of Economic Opportunity (RFP-03-17/LM). Proposals were solicited from 13 firms and 4 responses were received. Cintas Fire Protection was low bid for Group A and Aegis Fire and Integrated Services LLC was low bid for Group B. The contract terms provide for an initial two year period at an annual cost of $55,874 for Group A (Cintas) and $24,670 for Group B (Aegis). There is a contract clause that allows for an annual cost escalation of 3% or the actual Consumer Price Index (CPI), whichever is less. The contract may be extended for three additional two year terms. Total estimated costs for each contract if renewed through the final term (8 years total) is $446,992 Group A and $197,360 Group B. Gap Analysis The district has an ongoing requirement to maintain fire sprinkler and associated pump systems and back flow preventers. Previous Outcomes The district has previously completed this work using annual contracts. Contract award for continued annual inspection, repair and maintenance of fire sprinkler and associated pump systems and back flow preventers in all district schools and facilities. These contracts are funded with Maintenance Operating Budget funds. Contract costs for Group A are $111,748 for the first two years, with an additional cost of $335,244 for six additional years for a total of $446,992. Contract costs for Group B are $49,340 for the first two years, with an additional cost of $148,020 for six additional years for a total of $197,360.
