Agenda Item #43


Title
Consultant Contract for Educational Plant Survey

Discussion

The Educational Plant Survey (EPS) is defined in Florida Statute 1013.31 as "a systematic study of present educational and ancillary plants and the determination of future needs to provide an appropriate educational program and services for each student based on the projected capital outlay FTE's approved by the Florida Department of Education."

The EPS contains all of the proposed facility improvements that have been approved by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE).  It is also the basis of the School District's annual Five-Year Facilities Work Program.

The EPS must be updated and submitted to the FDOE for approval every five years at a minimum.  The current EPS was approved by the FDOE on January 7, 2011; an update must be submitted by June 30, 2015. 

Fran Pickett & Associates assisted Brevard Public Schools with the development and approval of the current EPS and the two previous EPS updates in 2002 and 2006, as well as several Spot Surveys (intermediate partial updates). 

Fran Pickett & Associates has submitted a proposal for this work under an approved "piggyback" of a contract awarded by the School District of Collier County, in the amount of $30,300.  Adequate funding has been identified and budgeted in the FY2014-15 Capital Funds for this work. 

School Board approval is required for Purchase Orders over $25,000.  In order to expedite the work, approval is requested as a Consent Item without previous information.
