Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Department of Transportation (Transportation) solicited quotes for janitorial services at Transportation’s Headington facility, Shakori facility, and Emerald Bay facility. Three firms provided quotes. 

 

Pro-Line Cleaning Services, Inc. (Pro-Line) provided the lowest quote for the Headington facility.  Pro-Line has been providing services at this location for multiple years and Transportation has been satisfied with their service.  Agreement 4466 will be for three years to perform routine janitorial services with a total not-to-exceed of $95,000.  The contract also includes an as-needed component to allow for deep cleaning or additional services not listed in the current scope of work.

 

Building Services of CA and NV, LLC. (Building Services) provided the lowest quote for the Shakori and Emerald Bay facilities.  Building Services is currently providing services at the Emerald Bay facility and Transportation has been satisfied with their service.  Agreement 4462 will be for three years to perform routine janitorial services with a total not-to-exceed of $72,000.  The contract also includes an as-needed component to allow for deep cleaning or additional services not listed in the current scope of work.  The Emerald Bay facility is shared by Transportation, Long Range Planning, Development Services, and Environmental Management.  Additionally, Supervisor Novasel’s office is located at this facility and will be serviced by this contract.  Each of these departments will pay a proportional share of the cost of Agreement 4462.

 

Transportation recommends the Board make findings in accordance with Government Code Section 31000 that the Department of Transportation's Headington, Shakori, and Emerald Bay facilities are remote from available County employee resources and that the County's economic interests are served by contracting out the work associated with janitorial services at said locations.  Transportation also recommends that the Board make findings in accordance with Section 3.13.030.A of the County Ordinance code that janitorial work at said facilities can be more economically and feasibly performed by independent contractors than County employees.  The department had performed a comparative cost analysis and contracting out this work results in significant savings to the County.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could decline to approve these agreements.  A different solution would need to be found for janitorial needs at the three locations.
