Authorize issuance of a purchase order to National Auto Fleet Group for a new Police Department van.  (Cost: $53,923.68) (Action Item)



To secure City Council authorization to purchase one (1) new Police Department van from National Auto Fleet Group through the Sourcewell competitive bid program, Contract #091521-NAF.


The Public Works Department has one (1) Police Department van that currently meets the City’s guidelines for replacement and was approved through the FY-22/23 budget process. This van is replacing a 2006 Ford E350 van, VIN# 1FMRE11W56DA53212, with 53,678 miles from the Police Department. Experience has shown that the City’s buying power is enhanced through joining with other public agencies to purchase fleet vehicles and equipment.


Sourcewell nationally solicits, evaluates and awards contracts through a competitive bid process. As a member of Sourcewell, the City is able to utilize bid awards for equipment purchases. Staff recommends piggybacking on the results of a recent Sourcewell competitive bid program, Contract #091521-NAF. The results deemed National Auto Fleet Group as the lowest responsive bid.
