Recommend approval to procure two street sweepers from Environmental Products Group in the amount of $465,400 (Event No. 8447).

The sweepers will replace two units (4717 and 5733) that have reached the end of their useful life cycle and are no longer cost effective to maintain. The Sanitation Department Street Cleaning Division will use the machines to sweep curbed streets throughout the city. Procurement of these sweepers will ensure continuity of operations at the existing equipment level with the current supplier of this specialty equipment.

The Elgin sweeper is unique to the City’s fleet and the competitive bid process utilized in the past was not found beneficial to the City. Environmental Products Group, Inc. dba Environmental Products of Georgia currently holds the Sourcewell contract.

This procurement was made through a cooperative purchasing agreement with Sourcewell contract #122017-FSC-1. Cooperative purchasing is authorized as an appropriate procurement method in Division 10 Section 4-4152 of the City of Savannah’s purchasing ordinance.

The contract was competitively bid and awarded to Environmental Products Group. A master agreement with Environmental Products Group was signed for a four-year term with one renewal option. The contract expires on February 20, 2022.

Delivery: As requested. Terms: Net 30 days. The vendor is:

S.C. Environmental Products Group (Atlanta, GA)(D) $465,400

A pre-proposal meeting was not conducted as these goods are being procured through the use of a cooperative purchasing agreement. (D) Indicates non-local, non-DBE business. Recommend approval.
