Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
Funds are available within each individual requesting department's service and supplies budget (general and non-general fund).

The Procurement & Contracts Division processes various contracts with multiple laundry and linen and garment rental service providers for use by departments County-wide. Multiple contracts are necessary as not all vendors provide the same items and services.

The term of this contract covers the period of March 31, 2013 through March 31, 2016. Items rented include uniforms, mats, and shop towels with weekly rental costs per item range from $0.07 to $4.75.

Reason for Recommendation
Your Board is being asked to make findings that it is more economical and feasible to obtain an outside contractor to provide laundry and linen services County-wide, rather than to create new County job classifications and procure and maintain specialized equipment and facilities necessary to perform these services.
