Accept the Lowest Responsive, Responsible Bid Submitted by Crumpton Welding Supply - Invitation to Bid (ITB) #17031-MST-BJH Welding Purchase Materials and Repair (Business Services Division)
On May 11, 2017, Procurement Services, in conjunction with Sites and Utilities, issued an ITB for repair services and materials including welding rods, torch tips, and various types of welding gases used at our district sites as well as our welding technology programs. This recommendation has been reviewed by the Sites and Utilities Manager.

The initial term of this agreement shall be for a one-year period, with four one-year renewals. There is a 30-day termination for convenience clause included in this contract. All prices offered are firm against any increase for at least one year from the effective date. This contract will be reviewed and evaluated annually and may be renewed by the Superintendent, per the terms of the specifications.
• Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship
Funds in the amount of $130,000 are available in the General Fund Reserve for inventory purchases. Product is initially purchased from object 1150 and placed into Sites and Utilities inventory. As product is needed districtwide, the product and expense are both transferred to the using site. As of May 24, 2017, the remaining balance less encumbrances for this line item equaled $5,580,219.69.
Contract administration or evaluation is performed by the Project Manager (end user) and Procurement Officer who function as a team. Reviews are performed annually or by utilizing an online vendor performance report. Prior to soliciting a new contract, the Contract Administration team must first give consideration to the specifications and supporting data of the expiring contract.
