Title
Rockledge High School - Guaranteed Maximum Price for Technology Structured Cabling Upgrades (Sales Surtax)

Discussion
Strategic Plan 2.1.3 (Structured Cabling Standards) has identified eight remaining schools that require structured cabling renovations based on facility age and conditions. Attachment F references the Sales Surtax Funded assessment for Rockledge High School. The structured cabling project at Rockledge High School was designed previously with tax levy funding. Remaining 2006 and 2008 tax levy funds must be closed out immediately and utilized for cabling renovations. Heard Construction, Inc. has submitted attached Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Construction Management Services in the amount not to exceed $1,520,755.54 for the project. The design was done under the District's continuing services contracts with Premier Engineering for $81,580. The total project budget including design, construction, reserve, project administration, permitting, inspection and accounting is $1,707,750.66. Design was previously Board approved with funds encumbered. The attached Rockledge High School project budget sheet provides a breakdown of the remaining project total of $1,626,170.66 to be funded. The project is funded utilizing the remaining 2006 and 2008 tax levy funds with the balance funded from the sales surtax. The unspent surtax funds will be available to reallocate. Board approval is required for a purchase order over $25,000. In order to expedite the work, approval is requested without prior information.

Recommendation
Approve the Rockledge High School Technology Structured Cabling Upgrades total project budget in an amount not to exceed $1,626,170.66. Approve the included Guaranteed Maximum Price submitted by Heard Construction, Inc. under their Continuing Services Contract for Construction Management Services in an amount not to exceed $1,520,755.54
