The Public Works Director has determined and reports that the lowest monetary bidder, Redgwick, submitted a non-responsive bid by failing to document an adequate good faith effort to comply with the requirements of the County’s Outreach Program for this project. The Public Works Director recommends rejection of the bid submitted by Redgwick Construction Company.
The Public Works Director has determined that GradeTech Inc. (“GradeTech”) documented an adequate good faith effort to comply with the requirements of the County’s Outreach Program and exceeded the Mandatory Subcontracting Minimum for this project, and the Public Works Director recommends that the construction contract be awarded to GradeTech.
On December 1, 2020 Redgwick was notified in writing of the Public Work Director’s determination (see Attachment A). The Public Works Director has determined that GradeTech exceeded the Mandatory Subcontracting Minimum goal for this project and recommends that the construction contract be awarded to GradeTech.
The Public Works Director recommends that the bid submitted by GradeTech is the lowest responsive and responsible bid, which is $27,617.00 less than the next lowest bid, and this Board concurs and so finds.
