DEPARTMENT: Department of Public Works

SUBMITTED BY: Richard Dublinski, Director

BOARD/COMMISSION REVIEW:
N/A

BACKGROUND:
The Department of Public Works - Public Building Operations Division (PBO) is responsible for maintaining the City's facilities and public spaces, including the Central Business District (CDB), and parking decks. As part of this responsibility, PBO obtains the janitorial supplies used at facilities and distributes the supplies to the custodial contractors and staff for use.

In previous years, PBO has secured supplies via quotes. In 2019, PBO conducted an internal assessment regarding the procurement and in-house inventory management of janitorial supplies in an effort to improve operations including an analysis to determine if the janitorial supplies should be bid or to transition to a national cooperative contract. Staff evaluated cooperatives with six supply vendors and recommended the use of a cooperative janitorial supply contract to facilitate the purchase and distribution of supplies.

In July 2019, the city manager awarded Cooperative Contract 19-211 for a one-year term from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. City Council approved Change Order #1 on February 18, 2020. The original award amount was based solely on historical spending of the Department of Public Works. The change order was processed to include other accounts, add additional funds for downtown maintenance and accurately budget for chemical and paper products. On July 21, 2020 the City Council awarded Cooperative Contract 20-265 for janitorial supplies.

DISCUSSION:
Staff recommends continuing the use of an approved cooperative contract, OMNIA Partners Cooperative Contract 192163 through W.W. Grainger Inc., for the procurement of the janitorial supplies.
