TITLE
ORDINANCE ESTABLISHING PROCEDURES FOR PROVIDING PREFERENCE TO LOCAL CERTIFIED SERVICE-DISABLED VETERAN BUSINESSES IN COUNTY CONTRACTS; CREATING SECTION 2-8.5.1 OF THE CODE; PROVIDING SEVERABILITY, INCLUSION IN THE CODE AND AN EFFECTIVE DATE

BODY
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Miami-Dade County would like to provide a preference in County procurement and contracting to service-disabled veterans who are local vendors and who have made extraordinary sacrifices on behalf of the nation,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. The Code of Miami-Dade County is hereby amended by adding the following new section thereto as Section 2-8.5. 1
>>Sec. 2-8.5.1 Procedure to Provide Preference to Local Certified Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises in County Contracts

(1) Definitions: Local Certified Service Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise is a firm that is (a) a local business pursuant to Section 2.8.5 of the Code of Miami-Dade County and (b) prior to proposal or bid submittal is certified by the State of Florida Department of Management Services as a service-disabled veteran business enterprise pursuant to Section 295.187 of the Florida Statutes.

(2) A Local Certified Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise that submits a bid for a contract shall receive a bid preference of five percent of the price bid. These preferences will only be used for evaluating and awarding the bids and shall not affect the contract price.


(3) A Local Certified Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise that submits a proposal in response to an RFP, RFQ, RFI or a Notice to Professional Consultants that assigns weights to evaluation and selection criteria shall receive five percent of the evaluation points scored on the technical portion of such bidder’s proposal.

(4) At the time of bid or proposal submission, the firm must affirm in writing its compliance with the certification requirements of Section 295.187 of the Florida Statutes and submit this affirmation and a copy of the actual certification along with the bid or proposal submission.

(5) In the event that Broward, Palm Beach or Monroe County extend preferences to Local Certified Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises, Miami-Dade County may enter into an inter-local agreement with such County wherein the preferences of this section may be extended and made available to vendors that are both Certified Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises and considered local vendors in those counties pursuant to Section 2-8.5 of the Code of Miami-Dade County. Nothing in this ordinance is meant to limit any preferences otherwise available to local businesses pursuant to the Code.<<


Section 2. If any section, subsection, sentence, or clause of this ordinance is held invalid, the remainder of this ordinance shall not be affected by such invalidity.
Section 3. It is the intention of the Board of County Commissioners, and it is hereby ordained that the provisions of this ordinance, including any Sunset provision, shall become and be made a part of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida. The sections of this ordinance may be renumbered or re-lettered to accomplish such intention, and the word "ordinance" may be changed to "section," "article," or other appropriate word.
Section 4. This ordinance shall become effective ten (10) days after the date of enactment unless vetoed by the Mayor, and if vetoed, shall become effective only upon an override by this Board.

1 Words stricken through and/or [[double bracketed]] shall be deleted. Words underscored and/or >>double arrowed<< constitute the amendment proposed. Remaining provisions are now in effect and remain unchanged.
