Sole Source Exemption

§                     NC General Statute Section 143-129(e)(6) provides that formal bidding requirements do not apply when:

-                     Performance or price competition are not available;

-                     A needed product is available from only one source or supply; or

-                     Standardization or compatibility is the overriding consideration.

§                     Sole sourcing is necessary for this contract because a needed product is available from only one source.

§                     City Council approval is required for any purchases made under the sole source exception.



§                     This contract will provide replacement parts for the repair and rehabilitation of existing conveyor belts at the Mallard Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (Council District 4).  

§                     The conveyor belts were previously installed within the plant through competitively bid construction projects. Compatible parts are only available from the manufacturer, Serpentix Conveyor Corp.

§                     Estimated cost of the replacement parts is $117,000.
