The Department of General Services (DGS) has an immediate need for Tildora Systems, LLC (Tildora) to provide Emergency GMAX Synthetic Turf-Field Testing services for athletic fields located in the District of Columbia in accordance with Chapter 47 of title 27 of the DCMR Section 4719 and PPRA Sec. 405 (d); Emergency Procurements.
ESTIMATED FAIR AND REASONABLE PRICE:
The estimated fair and reasonable price is up to $78,800.00.
FACTS WHICH JUSTIFY AN EMERGENCY PROCUREMENT:
The purpose of this emergency contract is to ensure athletic field compliance and prevent future and current unsafe surfaces during activities that may cause injury of any kind to participants in events or public activities. It is the mission and the responsibility of the Department of General Services to provide building and grounds services for facilities owned and occupied by the District government, including athletic field services. (D.C. Code § 10-551.01(b) (4), The Department of General Services Establishment Act of 2011.)
A competitive procurement process was not practical under these circumstances and a new contract could not be competitively bid and awarded in time to have a certified GMAX Synthetic Turf-Field Testing services contractor in place to provide the required services prior to the anticipated use of the athletic fields. Failure to have GMAX Synthetic Turf-field Testing performed may result in potentially unsafe environments and cause bodily harm during use of the athletic fields to District employees and the public.
