Due to budgetary constraints, the original advertisement issued on March 9, 2010 requested proposers respond to the solicitation with price proposals for a base bid, Alternate No. 1 and Alternate No. 2. The estimate for the first base bid which consisted of two new co-generation units was in the amount of $9,506,000. Alternate No. 2 which consisted of two new co-generation units and the replacement of two existing co-generation units was in the amount of $13,506,000.
The Department re-prioritized its funding priorities for capital projects to proceed with the estimate for Alternate No. 2. Pursuant to the advertisement, the price utilized to obtain the adjusted bid and ranking was Alternate No. 2.

EXPLANATION:
STEP 1
On October 15, 2010, three (3) proposals were received. At the Step 1 Evaluation of Qualifications meeting held on November 4, 2010, the Standing Selection Committee (SSC) reviewed and ranked the two (2) responsive and responsible proposals received on October 15, 2010. One proposal was found not in compliance with technical certification requirements and eliminated from further evaluation. Both firms, AECOM Technical Services, Inc. and Poole & Kent Company of Florida along with its team members met the minimum qualifications and demonstrated their relevant experience with other projects as required in the Request for Design-Build Services. The references in the proposals were verified by OCI. The SSC voted to invite the two (2) qualified firms to submit Technical (Oral Presentations) and Price Proposals for Step 2.

STEP 2
The Step 2 Technical and Price Proposal (Oral Presentations) meeting was held on December 8, 2010. The SSC evaluated and scored the firms and the price envelopes were opened and tabulated, the lowest adjusted bid was Poole & Kent Company of Florida. The SSC motioned that Poole & Kent Company of Florida as the top ranked firm with the lowest adjusted bid to be recommended to the County Mayor or his designee for negotiations of the design-build contract.

The Negotiation Committee was approved by the County Manager on December 16, 2010. On January 5, 2011, the Negotiation Committee met with Poole & Kent Company of Florida and concluded its fifth negotiation meeting on March 4, 2011. Based on the above facts, WASD is making a recommendation to award the design-build contract to Poole & Kent Company of Florida.

This Contract Award Recommendation is being presented to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) in accordance with Ordinance 08-92 which states that if the base value of a recommended award exceeds the base estimate by more than ten (10 percent) it requires BCC approval.

The Office of Capital Improvements CIIS database contains eleven (11) evaluations for Poole & Kent Company of Florida with an average overall 3.5 rating out of a possible total 4 points.

BODY


The project is needed to transport landfill gas from the neighboring landfill site to the SDWWTP site to be used as fuel to generate electricity. WASD will pay the Department of Solid Waste Management 30% of the avoided electricity cost generated from the landfill gas which will increase capacity of the existing cogeneration facility. The existing cogeneration units are reaching their life expectancy and maintenance costs are increasing. As such, the proposed new cogeneration units will produce sufficient additional electricity as compared to the existing units to recover the capital investment of this project between 5 and 7 years.

This project was approved under the list of projects to receive monies under the Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant Program from the Department of Energy.
