City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 02/14/2017  

SUBJECT:
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT (PSA) WITH AKM CONSULTING ENGINEERS FOR SEWER SCADA
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize execution of a Professional Services Agreement with AKM Consulting Engineers in a not-to-exceed amount of $58,508 for design of a SCADA system including upgrades to the existing control systems at Rincon, Butterfield, and other City lift stations.
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
The Sewer Capital Improvement Project fund includes budget for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) at the sewer lift stations. SCADA will provide automated oversight of the conditions at the lift stations. The Project has had minor work in the past years and is now ready to move forward with completion.
 
On February 10, 2015 Council approved a list of firms to provide engineering services which included AKM Engineering.  AKM has submitted a proposal to complete the design of a SCADA system including upgrades to the existing control systems at Rincon and Butterfield lift stations in the amount of $58,508.
 
The proposal from AKM will provide the following services:
  1. Perform a communications study to determine the feasibility and preferred method of network communications between sites. 
     
  2. Prepare design plans and specifications for replacement of the existing control system.
     
  3. Construction support services are not included. 
AKM Consulting Engineers is a reputable company staffed with highly qualified and experienced personnel who will ensure that the City will receive a quality product.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This action is not a project within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code § 21000, et seq., “CEQA”) and CEQA Guidelines (Title 14 California Code of Regulations § 15000, et seq.) Section 15306 and is therefore exempt from CEQA. 
 
FISCAL IMPACT:
Funding for this effort will come from the Sewer SCADA project, which is part of the adopted FY 2016-17 Sewer Capital Improvement Program budget.
