The Department of General Services (DGS) has an immediate need for Covenant Development Company, Inc. to provide Operation, Maintenance and Repair of Emergency and Standby Power Systems (Generators) at DYRS Facilities located at 1000 Mt. Olivet Road Washington, DC and 8400 River Road Laurel Maryland 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 $30,790.00.
FACTS WHICH JUSTIFY AN EMERGENCY PROCUREMENT:
The purpose of this emergency contract is to ensure emergency and standby power are available to residents, faculty and staff at both DYRS facilities and in compliance with the standing settlement agreement in Jerry M., et al. v. District of Columbia, 1985-CA-1519 (Superior Court of the District of Columbia). Maintaining electrical power is critical in ensuring operations and life safety; therefore, mandatory for the Department of General Services. 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 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 generator contractor in place to provide the required services. Failure to have emergency and standby power systems in working order may result in potentially unsafe environments to residents, staff and faculty of DYRS facilities.
