The Department of General Services (DGS) has an immediate need for Tyco Simplex Grinnell to provide Emergency Operation, Maintenance and Repair of Emergency Fire Safety Equipment at DYRS 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 $26,358.00.
FACTS WHICH JUSTIFY AN EMERGENCY PROCUREMENT:
The purpose of this emergency contract is to ensure life safety to residents, faculty and staff at 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 fire extinguisher, kitchen fire suppression, fire pumps, sprinkler systems and fire alarm systems is critical in ensuring 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 Fire Safety Equipment contractor in place to provide the required services. Failure to have fire extinguisher, kitchen fire suppression, fire pumps, sprinkler systems and fire alarm systems in working order may result in potentially unsafe environments and cause bodily harm to residents, staff and faculty of DYRS facilities.
