|Adopt the Resolution|
|For approximately five years, the City of Miami Beach has had an agreement for the provision of interior and exterior painting and waterproofing services. The current contract expired on October 21, 2019. In order to establish a replacement contract, on October 4, 2019, the City issued an Invitation to Bid 2020-019-ND (the “ITB”). The purpose of the ITB is to establish a contract, by means of sealed applications, with qualified contractors for the establishment of a prequalified pool of painting and waterproofing contractors. The pre-qualified pool established shall effectively create a source of viable contractors from which the City may issue Invitation to Quotes (ITQs) for various City painting and waterproofing projects during the term of the contract. Further, at any time, the City, through the approval of the City Manager, may accept applications and add additional or remove contractors to the list of prequalified contractors during the term of the contract.
|The ITB was issued on October 4, 2019, with bid opening date of October 25, 2019. The Procurement Department issued bid notices to 1,828 companies utilizing www.bidsync.com website. 53 prospective bidders accessed the advertised solicitation. The notices resulted in the receipt of nine (9) responses from: Abacron LLC (“Abacron”), Cunano Builders Corporation (“Cunano”), Endirt LLC (“Endirt”), Government Business Development LLC (“Government Business”), Halcyon Builders, Inc. (“Halcyon”), I.D. Painting Corp. (“I.D. Painting”), Inclan Painting and Waterproofing, Corp. (“Inclan”), Roof Painting by Hartzell, Inc. (“Hartzell”), and Paint Quest, LLC (“Paint Quest”).
The ITB stated that following the review of applications, the responsive and responsible bidder(s) meeting all terms and conditions of the ITB will be recommended for award. In its due diligence, the Procurement Department found that Abacron, Cunano, Endirt, Government Business, Halcyon, I.D. Painting, Inclan, Hartzell, and Paint Quest met the requirements of the ITB. Accordingly, all bidders as listed in Exhibit A have been deemed responsive, responsible bidders meeting all terms and conditions of the ITB and are recommended for award.
The funding of this project is as follows:
|I concur with staff that it is in the best interest of the City to have a pool of prequalified painting and waterproofing contractors from which proposals can be sought to quickly deploy a contractor to address an identified painting or waterproofing need of the City. Otherwise, redundant and time-consuming efforts would be required to qualify contractors each time a need was identified. In order to continue to maximize competition by continuing to add contractors, I recommend that the period for submitting applications be extended to be consistent with the term of the contract. New applicants that meet the ITB requirements will be added to the pool. Contractors that do not perform well will be removed from the pool.
Therefore, I recommend that the Mayor and City Commission of the City of Miami Beach, Florida, approve the Resolution, accepting the recommendation of the City Manager, pursuant to Invitation to Bid (ITB) No. 2020-019-ND, to establish a pool of painting and waterproofing contractors to expedite the selection of contractors for future painting and waterproofing projects not to exceed $300,000, and approve the initial pool of qualified contractors, as set forth in Exhibit “A” to the Commission Memorandum accompanying this Resolution; further, authorizing the City Manager to keep the ITB open for the purpose of prequalifying additional painting and waterproofing contractors, and delegating to the City Manager the authority to add (or remove) contractors to the pool, provided the added contractors meet the requirements of the ITB.
