BODY
WHEREAS, this Board desires to accomplish the purposes outlined in the accompanying memorandum, a copy of which is incorporated herein by reference,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board approves a two-year extension of the Interlocal Agreement between Broward County and Miami-Dade County for Reciprocity of Local Preference Ordinances and Programs, in substantially the form attached hereto and made a part hereof; and authorizes the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to execute the Seventh Amendment to the Interlocal Agreement and a statement of substantial similarity which states that Broward County has adopted a Local Preference Ordinance substantially similar to the Local Preference Ordinance of Miami-Dade County.

HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairman Jean Monestime
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Authorizing a Two-Year Extension of the Interlocal Agreement Between
Broward County and Miami-Dade County for Reciprocity of Local Preference

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) authorize a two-year extension of the Interlocal Agreement between Broward County and Miami-Dade County for Reciprocity of Local Preference Ordinances and Programs (Agreement).

Scope
The impact of the accompanying resolution is countywide in nature.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The accompanying resolution will have no fiscal impact to Miami-Dade County.

Track Record/Monitor
Mr. Amos Roundtree, Director of the Procurement Management Services Division in the Internal Services Department, is responsible for the administration of the Local Preference Ordinance and oversight of this Agreement.

Background
The original Agreement between Broward County and Miami-Dade County established reciprocity of local preference ordinances and programs. That Agreement became effective in June 2002 upon the execution of both parties of a Statement of Substantial Similarity, which attests that Broward County has adopted a local preference ordinance substantially similar to the local preference ordinance of Miami-Dade County.

The terms of the Agreement require each county to apply its Local Preference Ordinance to the qualifying local vendors of both counties. The Board has extended this Agreement on six (6) previous occasions, with the current Agreement scheduled to expire on September 30, 2015. Approval of this seventh amendment will extend the term of the Agreement for two (2) years, through September 30, 2017. The Agreement is null and void unless the Statement of Substantial Similarity is executed by both parties.

Since the implementation of the reciprocity agreement in 2002, six (6) contracts have been awarded by Broward to Miami-Dade vendors and 15 contracts have been awarded by Miami-Dade to Broward vendors, based on the application of local preference reciprocity.
