|REPORT:||Chairman Bovo opened the floor for public comments and called for persons wishing to appear before the Committee on the foregoing proposed resolution. The floor was closed after no one appeared wishing to speak. Commissioner Heyman questioned whether Item 3.1 – Electronic Monitoring Offender Services; a contract to lease electronic monitoring devices and related services for the Corrections and Rehabilitation and Juvenile Services Departments in the amount of $3.18 million had been vetted with local judges and other criminal justice system practitioners. Ms. Miriam Singer, Internal Services Department Assistant Director, explained that the Corrections Department worked closely with the Court System on the electronic bracelet requirements. She said Corrections Department staff had the opportunity to attend a session where the proposed products and services were presented and technical requirements were reviewed. Commissioner Heyman inquired whether delaying the decision on this item would present any problems. Mr. Lester Sola, Internal Services Department Director pointed out that the purchase was with the same provider currently being used and the State of Washington contract was being accessed to obtain favorable pricing. Commissioner Heyman said the issue was not to obtain the best price through the User Access Program, but whether the Chief Judge and other stakeholders opined on this new product before entering into a 34 month contract. Mr. Lester Sola asked Commissioner Heyman whether the Internal Services Department (ISD) could speak to the Chief Judge and the Corrections Department Director prior to the County Commission meeting. He said that ISD would withdraw the item and enter into a new solicitation if the stakeholders did not want to proceed. Commissioner Heyman asked Deputy Mayor Edward Marquez along with Internal Service Department Director Lester Sola to meet with the State Attorney, the Chief Judge, the Administrative Criminal Judge, the Public Defender, and the Interim Corrections Department Director regarding Item 3.1 – Electronic Monitoring Offender Services, to discuss whether the proposal to lease electronic monitoring devices and related services would meet the Corrections and Rehabilitation Department’s Monitored Release Unit House Arrest Confinement Program and Juvenile Services tracking requirements; whether the proposed electronic monitoring devices were appropriate for use in monitoring alcohol and drug offenders; and whether the system incorporated global position system (GPS) technology, prior to the Board approving a 34-month contract at a cost exceeding $3 million. Commissioner Heyman asked that Item 3.1 be bifurcated. Chairman Bovo asked Deputy Mayor Edward Marquez along with ISD Director Lester Sola to determine a method to designate the department(s) requesting award of competitive contracts, along with the costs associated with the requested items, in future resolutions. Chairman Bovo noted concern that he did not believe the $1.129 million expenditure for fire extinguisher inspections and recharging services in Item 1.3 – Fire Extinguisher Inspections and Maintenance, was an appropriate use of the People Transportation Plan (PTP) funding. Mr. Hugh Chen, Deputy Director of Operations, Transit Department, pointed out the intent was to have the surtax language removed. Deputy Mayor Edward Marquez noted a meeting was scheduled with Chairman Bovo to discuss procurement issues and this issue could be further addressed at that time. He pointed out that the Transit Department’s portion of the total requested funding was $161,000 and that fire extinguishers were needed on trains for safety purposes. Chairman Bovo said fire extinguishers would still be needed on trains if PTP funding was not available. Deputy Mayor Marquez noted a breakdown of all funding sources for each item was included in the resolution. He suggested that similar contract types could be reported together in the future. Chairman Bovo pointed out that it was often difficult to respond to media inquiries without having access to the pertinent details. Discussion pursued between Commissioner Heyman and Assistant County Attorney Heffernan regarding bifurcating Item 3.1. It was then decided that the item would be bifurcated at the Board of County Commissioners meeting should Mr. Sola not obtain the requested information. Mr. Sola said he would convene the meetings as requested and provide the results to Commissioner Heyman prior to the Board meeting. Chairman Bovo noted he would bifurcate Item 1.3 relating to the use of PTP funds when this foregoing proposed resolution was considered by the Board. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution as presented.|

Subject: Resolution Authorizing Award of Competitive Contracts, Establishment of a Prequalification
Pool, Access of Other Entity’s Contract, Rejection of Bids, Additional Expenditure Authority,
and Use Charter County Surtax Funds
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the award of competitive contracts, establishment of a pre-qualification pool, access of another entity’s contract, reject bids received, and authorize additional expenditure authority, with authority to exercise option-to-renew (OTR) periods. The items are described below and in more detail in the accompanying attachments.
Section 29-124 of the Code requires all contracts funded by People’s Transportation Plan Surtax proceeds, regardless of value, to be approved by the Citizen’s Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) and the Board. This package is placed for Committee review pursuant to Miami-Dade County Code Section 29-124(f). These recommendations may only be considered by the Board if the CITT has forwarded a recommendation to the Board prior to the date scheduled for Board consideration or 45 days have elapsed since the filing with the Clerk of the Board of this contract award recommendation. If the CITT has not forwarded a recommendation and 45 days have not elapsed since the filing of this award recommendation, I will request a withdrawal of this item. The contracts in this package are scheduled for the February 2014 CITT meeting.
