Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an Agreement with IDEXX Distribution, Inc. for the purchase of laboratory equipment and supplies.

 

Body

The Environmental Services Division manages the Environmental Services Laboratory in accordance with National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (NELAP) requirements. The purpose of the program is to provide bacteriological testing services to water utilities and the public.

 

Under the NELAP certification issued by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the laboratory is accredited to use the IDEXX Colilert methods for E. coli and presence/absence of total coliforms.  To run the accredited analysis methods, the City needs to use equipment and supplies from IDEXX Distribution, Inc.

 

The Utilities and Environmental Services Department recommends entering a 5-year term contract with IDEXX Distribution, Inc. which will not exceed $400,000 ($80,000/year).

 

 

Cost: $400,000
