The Department of General Services (DGS) has an immediate need for AAA Complete Building Services, Inc. to provide Emergency Plumbing and Construction services at Brightwood Elementary 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 $248,653.24.
FACTS WHICH JUSTIFY AN EMERGENCY PROCUREMENT:
The purpose of this emergency contract is to ensure safety and resolve a dangerous situation that resulted from a back flow preventer plug that blew and which caused the boiler room to flood approximately six (6) feet at Brightwood Elementary. It is the mission and the responsibility of the Department of General Services to provide building services for facilities owned and occupied by the District government. (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 plumber and construction services contractor in place to provide the immediate required services. Failure to have the water immediately removed from the boiler room may result in potentially unsafe environments and cause bodily harm during the use of mechanical equipment in the facility to District employees.
