Notice of Intent
Fleet GPS System
Date Issued: June 10, 2019
Notice is hereby given by The Corporation of the City of Penticton (the “City”) of the intent to award a service contract to Advantage Asset Tracking (the “Contractor”), to provide Fleet GPS System Monitoring for a period of 36 months. The contract value will not exceed $125,000.00 (excluding GST). The proposed contract will commence July 1, 2019.
In November 2011 the City of Vernon issued and facilitated the Joint Request for Proposal (RFP) FLT-11-78 Cooperative Fleet GPS/AVL System Supply on behalf of City of Kelowna, City of Penticton and the City of Vernon (the “Parties”). This Co-operative RFP solicited, evaluated and awarded the GPS/AVL supply and monitoring contract to Advantage Asset Tracking after a robust competitive bid process.
The Parties did not call for Contractor proposals at this juncture for the following reasons:
- The Parties acknowledge that this Contractor has detailed experience with the GPS system parameters, network details and specific fleet vehicle requirements that directly enhances this service.
- The Contractor has a history of providing quality product, service and monitoring at competitive rates. The manufacturer of the GPS units promotes monitoring services for customers to be provided by the distributor who sold and installed the devices.
- The Contractor has a large number of fully functional GPS units already installed in customer vehicles of the Parties. This equipment along with the labor cost to install are bought and paid for. The cost of switching at this time is not efficient or economical for the City.
Vendors who wish to object to the award may do so by notifying Cathy Ingram, Procurement and Inventory Services Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org Reasons for the objection must detail specific reason and be received no later than 9:00 am local time Friday, June 21, 2019.
