body

BACKGROUND:

On October 20, 2015, this Board approved a Design/Build Agreement with McCarthy Building Company for the construction of the Regional Operations Center (ROC). Demolition of the existing buildings on the former motor pool site began in early 2016 and concluded in the late summer of 2017. The building was substantially completed on September 18, 2019.

.

DISCUSSION:

In addition to many administrative areas including offices, conference rooms, work areas, staff dining rooms, and briefing rooms, the ROC requires furniture designed specifically for Public Safety Communications functions and 24/7 use, maximizing user comfort for long shifts and incorporating advanced dispatch technology.

 

Watson Consoles is the manufacturer of the dispatch work station furniture and provided installation services per the California Multiple Award Schedules contract #4-17-71-0079C.

 

This amendment is necessary due to a sales tax increase that took effect on April 1, 2019 and was not included in the original proposal due to schedule change.

 

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the resolution as to form.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Funding for this purchase is provided in the ROC project budget funded by Measure K.
