Agenda Item #26
Extend Continuing Contracts for Professional Services
The School District currently has 45 Continuing Contracts for Professional Services in the following categories:
These contracts are for an effective term of three years (one year with the option for two (2) one-year renewals), which ends on December 31, 2010. Typically, Facilities Services and Procurement Services would conduct a selection process for new Continuing Contracts in accordance with Florida Statute 287.055 - Acquisition of Professional Services, a process that is expensive and time consuming for both the vendors and the School District.
While it is in the best interests of the School District to have the Continuing Contracts for Professional Services, because capital funding is projected to be extremely limited for the next several years, it is expected that the work performed under these Continuing Contracts will be minimal. Therefore, it is recommended that all current Continuing Contracts be extended for an additional period not to exceed three (3) one-year renewals.
Authorize the Board Chairman to sign amendments to extend the current Continuing Contracts for Professional Services with the 45 firms shown on the attached List of Continuing Contracts for Professional Services for a period not to exceed three (3) one-year renewals.
