Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the City Manager to issue a Purchase Order to National Auto Fleet Group for the purchase of a City vehicle.

 

Body

 

With this purchase order, General Services will establish a one-time purchase with National Auto Fleet Group for a Ford F-350 as part of a new program for the Fire Department’s new Community Risk Reduction unit.

 

Cost: $132,687.40

Account Number: 10022022-6114

Funding Source: General Fund

 

The Fire Department was authorized to acquire the CRR unit from the County. With this new program, they were approved to purchase a support vehicle. This new program was approved in September by the Council.

 

Other notes to support this item:

 

This Is for the CARES fleet addition.

 

We went with National Auto Fleet for a few reasons:

1.                     They have close association with the utility body that the Fire department wanted.

2.                     They were the only vendor who would get the order in before the Ford order-window cut off.

3.                     Their pricing was in line with competitors and was below the budgeted purchase price.

 

Going with any other vendor would have increased cost and delayed delivery until the next model year.

 

This contract was established through a competitively solicited cooperative process.
