ITEM:                     AUTHORIZATION TO AWARD A SOLE SOURCE CONTRACT FOR THE PURCHASE OF BADGER WATER METERS AND COMPONENTS

 

REQUEST:                     Authorization to award a sole source contract to National Meter & Automation for the purchase of Badger water meters and components at a cost of $500,000 annually.

 

…body

EXPLANATION:                     In June 2008, the Village selected water metering products and technology manufactured by Badger Meter, Inc. for use in its utility metering operations. National Meter & Automation (previously Innovative Metering Solutions, Inc.) is the only manufacturer’s authorized dealer, and sole provider for Badger Meter products in Florida. Therefore, it is necessary to enter into a sole source agreement for the purchase of Badger Meter, parts and equipment for Fiscal Year 2020. The agreement will be governed by Wellington’s standard purchase order terms. Expenditures during this period are approximately $500,000, which is the amount currently proposed for FY 2020 budget. This amount includes $250,000 to replace old meters as needed due to age deterioration and $250,000 for new customer meters. The Village receives manufacturer’s catalog discount pricing for these materials.

 

The Utility Department currently maintains approximately 21,000 meters Village-wide.

 

Staff recommends awarding a sole source agreement to National Meter & Automation to provide Badger Water Meters and Components at a cost of $500,000.
