PUBLIC NOTICE: Proposed Exemption From Competitive Solicitation - Water Works Materials
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Medford Water Commission (Commission) will consider Resolution No. 1648, for the purpose of exempting listed manufacturers and materials used in the water distribution system from competitive solicitation, pursuant to the Commission’s Contracting and Purchasing Regulations, Section 2.32 – Sole Source Procurement at the regular meeting of Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 12:15 p.m.
The Commission believes that such specification would result in substantial cost savings by minimizing parts inventory and specialized training of staff for repairs, simplifying recordkeeping, minimizing repairs through use of high quality materials, and efficient utilization of existing equipment or supplies through the acquisition of compatible equipment or supplies.
A copy of the proposed Resolution, which will authorize a two-year exemption, is available upon request from the Commission’s office at 200 S. Ivy St., Room 177 or by calling: (541) 774-2440.
If you have any questions, you may contact Operations Superintendent Ken Johnson at (541) 774-2680.
Dated this 13th day of July 2017.
Eric C. Johnson, P.E.
