Agenda Item #41


Title
Guaranteed Maximum Price for Head Start Playgrounds at Sherwood Elementary School, Cocoa High School and Port Malabar Elementary School

Discussion

District Head Start staff, with prior input and approval from the Head Start Policy Council, has identified three Head Start sites where there is currently no existing age-appropriate playground equipment.  Playgrounds and associated site improvements will be undertaken at Sherwood Elementary School, Cocoa High School and Port Malabar Elementary School to support the Head Start programs and the physical health and development of preschool-age children on these campuses.

Canaveral Construction Co. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) under their Continuing Contract for Design Build Services in the amount of $141,762 to undertake the work based on design criteria developed by Head Start and Facilities Services.   

Adequate funding has been identified and approved by the Regional Head Start Office as requested in a budget extension for the  FY2012-13 grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services for the GMP, administration, permitting, and inspections for the project.

Board Approval is required for purchase Orders over $25,000.  In order to complete the work prior to the 2013-14 school year, approval is requested as a consent item without previous information.
