(C) REPLACEMENT PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT – NATIONAL JOINT POWERS ALLIANCE CONTRACT


It is requested that Council approve the purchase of replacement playground equipment from Miracle Recreation Company d/b/a Hasley Recreation, Inc., (Flowery Branch, GA), in the amount of $299,904.93. The purchase will be accomplished by Cooperative Purchase, via National Joint Powers Alliance, NJPA, Contract #022113-LTS.

The replacement playground equipment will be installed at the following playground locations: Pop Austin, Benning Park, Britt David, and Theo McGee. The vendor has designed equipment concepts for each location to include: various climbers, slides, activity decks and skill stations. The four playgrounds were selected because the current equipment is out of date and Parks and Recreation can no longer purchase replacement parts from the manufacturer. These playgrounds are on the City’s priority list for replacement due to the aged equipment located in the low to-moderate income areas in Columbus, GA. The design concept for each location is attached below:

CONCEPT 1 - Theo McGee-1140 Martin Luther King Blvd.pdfCONCEPT 2 - Benning Park-1441 Benning Drive.pdfCONCEPT 3 - Britt David - 5660 Armour Road.pdfCONCEPT 4 - Pop Austin-1301 Alexander Street.pdf

The purchase will be accomplished by cooperative purchase via Request for Proposal (RFP) Contract #022113, initiated by the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA), whereby PlayPower, Inc., was one of the successful vendors contracted to provide Playground and Recreation Related Equipment, Supplies Accessories and Supplies. The contract, which commenced April 23, 2013 is good through April 23, 2017. The National Joint Powers Alliance is a Service Cooperative created by Minnesota Statute 123A.21. This statute was created in 1978 and revised in 1995 to allow participating governmental and municipal agencies to reduce the cost of purchased goods by leveraging their combined purchasing power. The RFP process utilized by National Joint Powers Alliance meets the requirements of the City’s Procurement Ordinance; additionally, cooperative purchasing is authorized per Article 9-101 of the Procurement Ordinance. The purchase will be made through Miracle/Hasley Recreation, who is a division of PlayPower.

After analyzing HUD's financial system it was determined there was CDBG funding from Fiscal Year 2014 that had not been utilized, with a portion expended by May 2, 2016. Park improvements are eligible CDBG expenditures and the four parks identified are in need of major upgrades. Therefore, the purchase will be funded by Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

(D) UPGRADE OF FINANCE/PAYROLL/BUDGET/HUMAN RESOURCES SYSTEM

It is requested that Council approve the purchase of the CGI Advantage 360 (SaaS Solution – Software as a Service) upgrade of the Finance/Payroll/Budget and Human Resources System from CGI (Fairfax, VA). The cost includes: an Annual SaaS Subscription fee in the amount of $459,126 for 10 years (which replaces the current annual maintenance fee paid by Information Technology), and implementation cost paid as follows: FY16-$60,000, FY17-$764,067, FY18-$764,067 and FY19-$764,067.

The City is utilizing the 3.7 version of the CGI Finance system, which includes Accounting, Purchasing, Accounts Payable, Fixed Assets and Accounts Receivables. Budget is using Version 5.40.03.10 (Brass) for budget preparation. However, the Budget application has completely changed from BRASS to Performance Budgeting. Payroll and Human Resources is utilizing the 2.3.2 version, which is still housed on the Mainframe.

The current version of software available from the vendor is 3.10. In the past, budget constraints have hindered the City from upgrading when new versions of the software were released. However, we have reached a point where it is imperative that the system is upgraded for the following reason: 1) the server housing the Finance system is well beyond its useful life; 2) a new server would require an upgrade to the latest version of the software (version 3.10). The current version (3.7) would not be compatible with a new server; 3) various functions within the current system are not integrated; 4) the Information Technology Department’s plan to move all programs off of the mainframe, namely Payroll and Human Resources; and 5) The version of the software under which Human Resources, Payroll and Budgeting operate are no longer supported for upgrade.

Upgrading to CGI Advantage 360 (SaaS Solution – Software as a Service) will involve a 10-year commitment with overall cost savings and will provide enhancements, such as:

-The system will be hosted and managed by the vendor.
-The upgrade will bring all functions up to the current version

-Increase functionality and self-service capabilities
-Eliminate dependency on aging infrastructure
-Includes Disaster Recovery and back-ups.

The implementation project will span from April 2016 – December 2017. The various functions will be upgraded and implemented per a staggered schedule. The Finance Management portion of the project will begin May 1, 2016, and the Performance Budgeting portion of the project will start August 1, 2016. The live date for Performance Budgeting is scheduled for November 2016, and the live date for Finance Management is scheduled for January 2017. The Human Resources portion of the project will begin February 2017, with a scheduled live date of October 2017.

Funding in the amount of $459,126 is available in the FY16 Budget for the Annual SaaS Subscription fee in the Information Technology Budget. Funding in the amount of $60,000 is available in the FY16 Budget, for the Implementation cost, in Special Project/Capital Project Fund – LGFS/GHRS Conversion/Implement Project; Fund 0508 – Project # 22187.

The project will be further funded as follows: The Annual SaaS Subscription fee of $459,126 will be budgeted annually, for the remaining nine (9) years, in the appropriate fiscal year in the Information Technology Budget. The remaining Implementation cost will be budgeted as follows: FY17-$764,067, FY18-$764,067 and FY19-$764,067 in OLOST-Technology and Special Project/Capital Project Fund – LGFS/GHRS Conversion/Implement Project; Fund 0508 – Project # 22187.

(E) VENDOR NAME CHANGE FOR ROOFING CONSULTING SERVICES (ANNUAL CONTRACT) – RFP NO. 11-0021

It is requested that Council amend Resolution #247-11 (approved July 12, 2011) to change the name of one of the awarded contractors, Arid Consulting Corporation (Byron, GA) to Edifice Consulting, Inc. (Byron, GA), to continue providing roofing consulting services.

Arid Consulting Corporation was the secondary vendor for roofing consulting services. As of January 31, 2015, all corporate shares of Arid Consulting Corporation were acquired by Edifice Consulting, Inc., as documented by the attorney for Edifice Consulting, Inc. The services provided will remain the same per the RFP specifications.

(F) AQUATIC FACILITY MANAGEMENT OF THE COLUMBUS AQUATIC CENTER (ANNUAL CONTRACT) – RFP NO. 15-0023

It is requested that Council authorize the execution of an annual contract with American Pool Service of Georgia (Alpharetta, GA) for facility management of the Columbus Aquatic Center. The services will include staffing, water maintenance, supervision and programming, and management of the Pro Shop and Concessions. Initial negotiations have indicated 45 hours of operations per week. Every effort will be made to increase weekly hours to more than 45 hours per week. However, this could result in adjustments in other categories of services. A follow up report will be made to City Council regarding final negotiations.

The initial term of the contrast will be for one (1) year with the option to renew for nine (9) additional twelve-month periods. Contract renewal will be contingent upon the mutual agreement of the City and the Contractor.

Annual Contract History:
The previous ten-year contract with USA Pools (Roswell, GA) was awarded on February 12, 2013 (Resolution No. 49-13). On June 18, 2013, Council authorized USA Pools to charge fees and charges associated with operations of the Columbus Aquatic Center, as advised by the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department (Resolution No. 211-13).

On January 27, 2015, Council authorized the issuance of a ninety (90) day written notice to cancel the contract with USA Pools, due to the vendor not performing in accordance with the contract specifications (Resolution No. 19-15). The contract with USA Pools ended on April 27, 2015 and the Department of Parks and Recreation began managing the Columbus Aquatic Center.

Vendor Experience/Qualifications: The City’s Procurement Ordinance Article 3-110, Competitive Sealed Proposals for the procurement of Equipment, Supplies and Professional Services, governs the RFP Process. During the RFP process, there is no formal opening due to the possibility of negotiated components of the proposal. In the event City Council does not approve the recommended offeror, no proposal responses or any negotiated components are made public until after the award of the contract. Therefore, the evaluation results and cost information has been submitted to the City Manager in a separate memo for informational purposes.
