summary

Summary Explanation/Background:

Based on section 32.45 (Standardization) of the City Code of Ordinances, the Purchasing Division of the General Services Department recommends maintaining Neptune Water Meters, Parts, and Accessories on the list of standardized purchases.  According to Section 8. Other Methods of Procurement, Section F. Standardization, of the General Services Procedures Manual, standardized items are unique to the City because use of any other brand or source will put the particular City operation in jeopardy and not allow the proper city service to be completed.
To maintain compatibility with existing infrastructure and extend smart meter functionality to new installations, the Utilities Department will submit requests to issue Purchase Orders collectively totaling no more than $1,000,000.00/year. The Utilities Department will make these as-needed purchases of Neptune Water Meters, Parts, and Accessories from Ferguson Enterprises, LLC, the sole Florida distributor of Neptune Technology Group, Inc., equipment. City Commission approval to issue these purchase orders is requested.
