Background

Landfill staff utilizes a pickup truck to transport and secure valuable equipment, tools, and supplies necessary to properly maintain landfill gas and water monitoring wells necessary for environmental compliance. The current pickup truck cannot transport all the equipment and parts necessary to efficiently complete the tasks involved. The new 4x4 service body truck will be equipped to perform a multitude of environmentally related facility maintenance tasks on a daily basis, allow staff to securely store equipment and tools, minimize the need to physically load and off load the equipment, and will be designed to traverse the harsh terrain and conditions of the landfill, including times of inclement weather.

The Equipment Management Division solicited requests for quotes from multiple vendors, three quotes were received and Midway Chevrolet was the lowest responsive bidder. Materials Management has reviewed the purchase request documents and has determined that the procurement meets the requirements for the informal purchase procedures. Written quotes were received From Midway Chevrolet, Courtesy Chevrolet and Sands Chevrolet, with Midway Chevrolet being determined to be the lowest responsible bid.
Analysis

The current Landfill pickup truck is due for replacement due to its age and wear. This new 4x4 service truck will be utilized by landfill staff for transporting equipment and staff to and from the working face of the landfill.
