Explanation
* The city is responsible for the operations and maintenance of municipal and cultural facilities, including seating in theaters and other performance spaces.
* Universal Equipment Company provides seating across the portfolio of city facilities.
* Universal Equipment Company is an authorized distributor for Irwin Seating Company. Irwin Seating Company was awarded a contract by Omnia Partners Public Sector which offers competitively-obtained contracts to public agencies nationwide.
* Universal Equipment Company is willing to provide to the city the products at the same or better terms as the terms provided under the Omnia Partners Public Sector contract.
* G.S. 143-129(e)(3) allows local governments to purchase from formally organized cooperative purchasing contracts.
* A cooperative purchasing agreement results from the consolidation and competitive solicitation of multiple public agency requirements. By aggregating common needs all agencies are able to leverage economies of scale, such as volume discounts, improved terms and conditions, reduced administrative costs, and access to professional and technical expertise.
* Annual expenditures are estimated to be $200,000.
