|SUBJECT:||REQUEST FOR APPROVAL TO AWARD A CONTRACT PURSUANT TO INVITATION TO BID (ITB) NO. 2019-232-AY FOR OUTFALL CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE SERVICES.|
The Administration recommends that the Mayor and City Commission of the City of Miami Beach, Florida approve the City Manager’s recommendation pertaining to bids received, pursuant to ITB 2019-232-AY, Outfall Cleaning and Maintenance Services.
In an effort to maximize the preparedness of the City’s infrastructure to deal with stormwater events and minimize the possibility of flooding in certain areas of the City, the Administration issued Invitation to Bid (ITB) 2019-132-AY for outfall cleaning services. The work to be performed includes stormwater pipe and structure cleaning and video inspection. The project consists of the cleaning of stormwater piping, cleaning of catch basins, and cleaning of outfalls. The Contractor shall:
obtain any required permitting for de-watering activities and by-pass pumping that may be needed for videotaping and inspection;
furnish all labor, materials or equipment necessary to accomplish the work;
remove all plugs from the pipes during rainfall, pending rainfall, and at the completion of each day’s work; and
dispose of all solids removed from the drainage system in an appropriately licensed landfill.
The ITB was issued on September 5, 2019, with bid opening date of September 27, 2019. The Procurement Department issued bid notices to 1,173 companies utilizing www.publicpurchase.com and www.bidsync.com website. 135 prospective bidders accessed the advertised solicitation. The notices resulted in the receipt of three (3) responses from: EnviroWaste Services Group, Inc., Flotech Environmental, LLC, and Waterfront Property Services, LLC. Subsequent to the due date for bids, Waterfront Property Services, LLC notified the City of the withdrawal of its bid submittal. See Attachment A for a tabulation of the two remaining bids received.
The ITB states that the lowest responsive, responsible bidder meeting all terms conditions and specifications would be recommended for award. As noted in Attachment A, EnvironWaste Services Group submitted the lowest overall bid and has been deemed to be responsive to the requirements of the ITB. Further, EnviroWaste has previously provided services to the City and staff reports that they have performed well.
EnviroWaste Services Group is a local contractor with over 20 years of experience in supporting storm and wastewater infrastructure for the public sector. The firm has offices and resources servicing a multitude of municipalities throughout the Southeastern USA.
The costs of the related services are subject to funds availability approved through the City’s budgeting process.
After reviewing the bids received and the evaluation of staff, I recommend that the Mayor and City Commission of the City of Miami Beach, Florida, approve the award of a contract, pursuant ITB 2019-232-AY for Outfall Cleaning and Maintenance Services, to EnviroWaste Services Group, Inc., as the lowest responsive, responsible bidder to the ITB.
