Title

Vote on a request to approve Sheriff Vehicle Purchase 2019-2020.

 

Abstract

Action Requested: Motion to authorize the purchase of ten vehicles (9 Dodge Durango’s Spec# 148, 1 Ford Transit Van Spec# 88) on North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association Competitive Bid Award #19-05-0911, in the amount of $439,147.00 for vehicles only.

     

Introduction & Background: As part of the budget process each year, vehicles are evaluated for mileage and reliability for the purpose of law enforcement support.  A total of ten vehicles were approved for the Sheriff's Office capital outlay budget.

The NC General Statutes allow the County to use Cooperative purchasing contracts through the North Carolina Sheriffs Association.  The formal bid process has been conducted by the NC Purchasing & Contract Division.  Under the guidelines of G.S. 143-129(e)(3), the State contract purchases are exempt from additional bidding processes.

     

Discussion & Analysis: The addition of these requested vehicles will benefit this office by replacing higher mileage vehicles which require more maintenance. Delivery of the new vehicles is expected to take 3-6 months.

     

Budgetary Impact: Funds are included in the Chatham County Sheriff's Office FY2019-20 budget for capital outlay.

     

Recommendation: Consideration of a request to purchase ten vehicles (9 Dodge Durango’s and 1 Ford T-350 Transit Van) on Sheriffs’ Association Competitive Bid Award #19-05-0911, items #148 and #8 in the amount of $439,147.00 for vehicles only.
