The Board approved an amendment to the IID Purchasing Policy No. 3130 that was Updated and approved at the regular meeting of April 17, 2012.
At the July 24, 2012 Board meeting General Manager Kevin Kelley announced that the policy should be further revised to provide a greater emphasis on price. He directed staff to amend the policy to give a 40 percent weighting on the price component of all formal solicitation responses.
In the event that an award may be given to a solicitation that is not the lowest price, the matter will be brought to the Board for approval, along with the reasoning for the decision.
â€œApproving this amendment,â€ said IID Board of Director President John Pierre Menvielle, â€œshould show COLAB that we are taking care of the concern that we were â€˜only 95% thereâ€™ as far as being above board on the new policy.â€
Kelley stated the he feels that the new policy is more stringent than any other public code policy.
