EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Staff seeks City Council approval of four separate agreements for on-call consultant services related to electrical engineering services. Each agreement would be for not to exceed $100,000 annually (July 1 to June 30), and staff would be authorized to extend such agreements for up to four additional years, in an amount not to exceed $100,000 annually for each consultant. All work and task orders under these agreements are restricted to the funds appropriated and available for the specific project for which the work is assigned.

BACKGROUND

On-call consultant service agreements are used for services requiring expertise that City of Alameda (City) staff does not have and/or to supplement City staff during periods of peak work demand. Currently, there is a need for mechanical engineering services to support maintenance and capital replacement projects for City buildings, heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) systems, storm and sewer pump stations and other mechanical systems in the city.

The work to be performed includes, but is not limited to: provide staff and services on an on-call, as-needed basis, provide design services for repair or replacement of mechanical systems and infrastructure within City facilities, provide the full range of mechanical engineering services including preliminary studies, renderings, drawings, specifications, estimates, scopes of work, construction administration and other professional services.
