34. Notification of Emergency Procurement of Kerry Street Tower Repair Services from Eaton Corporation (Event No. 5705)
Strategic Priority

Notification of the emergency procurement of repair services of two uninterruptible power sources (UPS) from Eaton Corporation in the amount of $34,452.00. The Kerry Street Radio site suffered simultaneous catastrophic failures, which placed the radio network in a fragile condition with the loss off all redundant backup for the site’s power. Eaton Corporation is the manufacturer and only known supplier of the UPS repair units, and was contacted immediately to restore power to the site. Initially, the cost was estimated to be $15,000.00, and was approved on a small purchase agenda. After the repairs were under way, additional issues were discovered, which caused the cost to increase. The cumulative total of the purchase, $34,452.00, now requires Council approval.
