RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Public Works Director, or designee, to execute a contract amendment with TBP/Architecture, Inc. effective December 15, 2020, to increase the payment limit by $750,000 to a new payment limit of $1,500,000 and extend the term from October 8, 2022 to October 8, 2023, to provide on-call architectural services for various County facilities projects.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Projects will be assigned to the on-call architect when there is an approved project and funding (100% Various Funds).

BACKGROUND:

On October 8, 2019 the Board of Supervisors approved an on-call Consulting Services Agreement with TBP/Architecture, Inc., in the amount of $750,000 which will be terminating on October 8, 2022.  
  




BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)
Amendment No. 1 is necessary to provide architectural services and the additional costs associated with the completion of ongoing and new projects. TBP/Architecture, Inc. is familiar with these active projects, and the design and construction of typical building types therefore, it is recommended that the contract amendment be awarded at this time.  
  
TBP/Architecture, Inc will continue to provide architectural services, such as programming, design and construction administration. The type, size and location of projects vary. Typical projects may include new construction, building renovations/modernizations, remodeling of an entire building or specific areas within a building, tenant improvements, MEP upgrades, structural improvements, code-related improvements and deferred maintenance projects. Projects may also include fire district building projects. Extending this on-call agreement will save the County money when compared with the time and expense in conducting a consultant selection process on a project-by-project basis. It will also allow the design phase to commence sooner and provide for a shorter project completion schedule.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If Amendment No. 1 is not approved, projects in process will be delayed, which will ultimately result in higher project costs.
