This is an addendum to the previously approved staff report on Oct 1. 2020 for the purchase of portable radios. Staff is requesting a vendor change for the purchase of the radios.
On October 1, 2020 Council approved the purchase of portable radios from 49er communication. After the approval, staff discovered some discrepancies in the quote from the original selected vendor. After review and research, staff is requesting to change vendor to Cook’s Communication.
After review and research, It was determined that the original vendor was not selling OEM parts for some of the components based on the “equivalent to” wording on the quote for five of the items. All of the components listed on Cook's quote are OEM parts.
- Do not approve the vendor change and staff will continue with the original approved vendor.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
The cost from Cook's Communications will be $902.98 less than the previous vendor’s original quote. Attached are the original quotes with highlighted fields indicating the “equivalent to” parts.
