  The Department of Administrative Services respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital funds in the amount of $58,418.67 from fund 5KZ0, ALI C10035 (Building Improvement) for the primary switchgear replacement and fire suppression improvement project for the Frank J. Lausche State Office Building, Cleveland, Cuyahoga County (Project number DAS-160080).     
  The intent of this project is to disconnect and replace the main Lausche electrical switchgear with new upgraded equipment. The existing equipment is not functioning correctly and has exceeded its useful life. In addition, this project will replace the existing fire pump and controllers with upgraded equipment and technology. The existing fire pump has exceeded its useful life and is not functioning reliably.

The Controlling Board approved DAS0101042 on May 20, 2019 to release capital funds for the construction phase of this project. During this work, the project team discovered that additional fire suppression system components were showing signs of deterioration. In consultation with the Cleveland Fire Department, the team determined that system modifications were needed to bring the fire system compliant with the current fire code.

The purpose of this request is to provide additional engineering design services and construction administration associated with an increased scope of work due to the complexity of the project and the needed system modifications identified during the original construction phase. This request includes $57,840.27 to contract with Prater Engineering to provide professional design services and $578.40 for additional OFCC fees. Also included on this same agenda is a request (DAS0101103) to release additional capital funds to increase the owner's contingency as a result of the additional system modifications needed.

The OFCC pre-qualified consultant list is developed via an RFQ process to select a pool of design consultants to provide architectural and engineering services on an as-needed basis. OFCC received purchasing authority as an Agency Released Competitive Opportunity through the below-referenced related Controlling Board Request SFC0101088 approved on June 10, 2019.
