DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The inspection and certification of various fire suppression systems, including sprinkler systems, kitchen hood systems, and fire extinguisher systems is legally required by code. The County has held a contract with Tri-Signal Integration, Inc. over the past few years for monthly, quarterly, and annual fire suppression and fire extinguisher services for County facilities, both on the East Slope and West Slope.

Under the proposed contract, the vendor will perform periodic, scheduled inspections as well as services on an "as needed" basis. As a result, the specific costs for each fiscal year are not known, but are estimated at $65,000 annually for all services countywide.

The Division is requesting approval to enter into another three-year contract (April 2, 2019 through March 31, 2022) with Tri-Signal Integration, Inc. with a not-to-exceed amount of $200,000 for continued services.
