1. [Fire System Upgrade at Cal 1-23 1880 Pine in an amount not to exceed $296,589.00] Simon Chu, Project Manager, MOD/HD presented this Resolution. This Resolution authorizes the Executive Director to enter into a BBJ Electric inc. for a fire system upgrade at 1180 Pine Street. The general scope of work associated with this project will include removal of existing noncode compliant alarm system equipment, including smoke detectors, pull stations and related conduits or wire-mold and installation of the new fire alarm system. The new system will include new surface mounted wiremolds along corridors and in tenant’s units and installation of heat/flame detectors through out the building with horn and strobe lighting alarms at designated accessible units. The elevator controls will be re-programmed to link up with the new fire alarm system per code. HD& MOD developed the Invitation for Bid documents, Plans, and Specifications based on master procurement documents furnished by the Finance/Procurement Department (Procurement) and construction documents that meets current code requirements furnished by the Authority’s electrical and abatement consultants. The documents were reviewed and approved by Procurement prior to the start of the bid process.

According to the reference check on past projects performed by BBJ, the firm is a responsible contractor with a good record and has similar construction experience with other agencies. BBJ has performed well on similar size projects in the past, has a good history of performing well and minimizing contractor initiated change orders. A debarment check was made with California Department of Industrial Relationship and California State License Board and shows that BBJ is not debarred from Federal Procurement and Non-Procurement work. BBJ is not a MBE/WBE firm but will subcontract Safeco as their material supplier for $71,800 or 24 percent of the construction cost of the project. Therefore, the total MBE/WBE participation is at 24 percent. The Fire Alarm System Upgrade activity is funded in the Year 2009 ARRA CFP Program budget. Commissioner Schwartz wanted clarification on the fact that BBJ is not a MBE/WBE firm. Simon Chu informed the Commissioners that BBJ would

Commissioner Jones seconded the motion. This Resolution was approved unanimously. 2.
