October 10, 2019, City Council Regular Meeting
11. Motion to Authorize the City Manager to Execute a Contract with Penn Credit for Collections of Delinquent Code Compliance Fees (Event No. 7192)
Strategic Priority
Good Government

Recommend approval to authorize the City Manager to execute an annual contract with Penn Credit for collections of delinquent code compliance assessment fees. Penn Credit will receive 21% of all funds recovered. The City of Savannah desires to implement delinquent code compliance assessment fee collections to assist in cost recovery for services rendered. The vendor will collect upon all overdue accounts two years or less in age, and will assist in creating a process whereby delinquent accounts are strategically collected moving forward. This will be the City’s first partnership with an outside agency to assist in collecting delinquent code compliance assessment fee accounts.

The method used for this procurement was the request for proposals (RFP), which evaluates criteria in addition to cost. The criteria used for this RFP were proposer’s qualifications and experience, technical capabilities, references, fees, DBE participation, and local vendor participation.

The contract term shall be from October 10, 2019 through December 31, 2020.
