Linda Rosenthal moved that the Governing Board grant conceptual approval for the new Language and Communication Building at Scottsdale Community College. Motion carried 4-1. Mrs. Stein was opposed.
(C-18) CONTRACT AWARD FOR VENTILATION CORRECTIONS IN THE ART AND SCIENCE BUILDINGS AT PHOENIX COLLEGE - Approve awarding a contract in the amount of $263,145.00 to Summa Mechanical to repair ventilation problems in the Art and Science buildings at Phoenix College. Mrs. Stein referred to the statement in the item which indicates that IMCOR was unresponsive and questioned the indication regarding IMCOR's failure to acknowledge receipt of addenda #2. Mrs. Stein indicated that she received information that IMCOR never received addenda #2 and stated that she would appreciate more information. Mike McIntier explained the District purchasing procedures and that State procurement guidelines and law dictate that if a bid document states that all addenda must be acknowledged and responded to, then not responding to one addenda is grounds for disqualification. Mr. McIntier also stated that IMCOR had stated in a letter to Mrs. Stein that addenda #2 did not have any monetary value and that was incorrect.
Addenda #2 covered such items as parking, storage, taxes, dimensions, asbestos abatement, and work hours. Mr. McIntier indicated that bidders are not easily or randomly disqualified and the law is followed. Mrs. Stein noted that the difference between IMCOR and Summa to be approximately $70,000 and questioned whether it would be feasible to have more input or bids from others at this time. Mr. McIntier responded that there are no legitimate reasons to disqualify Summa and Summa would have legal grounds to make protest and take legal action against the District if they were disqualified. Ed Contreras asked if it is normal policy to fax addendums. Mr. McIntier replied that it is not normal policy, but it is done and bids are available to contractors by fax over the fax manager in the Purchasing Department. In response to Mr. Contreras' question if there is a paragraph asking the contractor to confirm the fax and if there is follow up to such receipts, Mr. McIntier stated that it is in the bid document that response must be given for receipt of all addenda, but there is not always follow-up due the volume of bids and addenda going out. Mr. Contreras asked if bid documents are mailed out, return receipt. Mr. McIntier replied they are not.
Mr. Contreras suggested that perhaps the way the procedure is handled could be improved to make sure the contractor has all needed information. Mr. Diaz then provided fax machine receipts that IMCOR had received addenda #2. Mr. Contreras expressed concern that fax machine receipts do not necessarily mean that the fax was received on the other end. Mr. McIntier stated that mailing out bids and addenda without "return receipt requested" is industry standard internationally and not required in government procurement. Dr. Campbell asked how each vendor can be on the same playing field if there is no assurance that all do not receive the documents. Mr. McIntier referred to case law that putting a document in first class mail is sufficient. Dr. Campbell stated that although the District may have case law on its side, everything within the District's power should be done to be sure all concerned receive the information.
Linda Rosenthal moved that the Governing Board approve awarding a contract in the amount of $263,185.00 to Summa Mechanical to repair ventilation problems in the Art and Science Buildings at Phoenix College. Motion carried 4-1. Mrs. Stein was opposed
