Forwarded from the General Government and Finance Advisory Board (GGAF):
Consideration and possible action to approve an award of a Blanket Agreement with W.W. Grainger, Inc. to provide maintenance repair and operations (MRO) supplies, parts, equipment, materials and related services through the Omnia Partners Public Sector Contract #192163 in an amount not to exceed $190,000.00 -- Rosemary Ledesma, Purchasing Manager
Approval of this blanket purchase order agreement with W.W. Grainger, Inc. (Grainger) under the Omnia Partners Public Sector (Omnia Partners) national cooperative program will allow the City of Georgetown to take advantage of lower prices for continuous supply of MRO supplies, parts, equipment, materials and related services. Items are to be ordered on an as needed basis by departments City-wide, and bulk items will be stocked in the Warehouse.
This action requests approval for a not-to-exceed amount of $190,000 for FY 2019-2020 to Grainger. Various categories of MRO items will be supplied with price discounts from 5-40%. The items to be supplied range from abrasives and adhesives, power tools, appliances, batteries, paint to various equipment and supplies which will be ordered by City departments through the Omnia Partners Contract #192163, a three year contract term of 7/1/2019 through 12/31/2022, with two possible one-year renewals.
According to Texas Local Government Code 271.102 (c), the City satisfies any state laws requiring the local government to seek competitive bids for the purchase of goods and services when purchasing under Subchapter F. Cooperative Purchasing Program.
The estimated total for this blanket agreement is $190,000. Funds for this expenditure are budgeted in the individual departments.
