Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

On February 12, 2015, five (5) bids were received for the purchase of Fire Apparatus, of which E.J. Metals, Inc. was one of the vendors awarded the contract based on evaluations. Public Procurement Authority acted as lead agency for the nationally cooperative solicitation for Fire Apparatus and Firefighting/ Rescue equipment which is available through the GPO cooperative contract #VH11550.

 

The Fire Department is requesting the purchase of a new E.J. Metals, Inc. F550 Squad truck which is a 2-person Emergency Services vehicle used for medical response.

 

The cost of the squad truck unit is $199,295.59. Additional accessory equipment for the apparatus will be purchased from various vendors at an estimated additional cost of $70,000. 

 

The F550 Squad Truck is an addition to the fleet as part of the 2019/2020 Budget. The VERF fund balance will cover the initial purchase, and the department will pay a double lease fee back to the VERF.

 

Staff recommends award of contract to Conrad Fire Equipment.

 

Conrad Fire Equipment is the assigned Olathe distributor by E.J. Metals, Inc.
