  The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital appropriation in the amount of $87,564.02 from Fund 7026, ALI C23016 (Energy Conservation Projects), in FY 20, and an agency released competitive opportunity in the amount of $71,715.00 to contract with B&J Electric of Poland, Inc., North Lima, OH, to install new LED lamps and fixtures for safety, security, and energy savings at three armories in Coshocton, Wayne, and Tuscarawas Counties. OFCC project number: SFC-20N005.  
  The scope of this project is to install new LED lamps and fixtures. The current lighting is at the end of its useful life and is costly to maintain. It is estimated that this equipment will save $13,000.00 annually in utility costs. The project pays for itself out of energy savings in 5.5 years, while the equipment will continue to generate savings over the remainder of its estimated 10- to 15-year life.

This project is necessary to complete at this time to provide for the safety and security for this military agency and to maintain operational readiness for responding to local, state, and national emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Ongoing maintenance has been delayed in anticipation of this project's commencement resulting in a situation where much of the existing lighting is failing. Failure to begin this project will cause the ONG to incur additional expenses to replace existing lighting.The State will incur additional costs due to re-bidding of the project at a future date and will lose the opportunity to participate in a utility rebate program expected to expire in 2020.

OFCC conducted a letterhead bidding process in accordance with the process described on page 112 of the Ohio Facilities Construction Manual and awarded to the lowest price responsive and responsible vendor. The request is for B&J Electric of Poland, Inc. in the amount of $71,715.00 for interior and exterior lighting at Coshocton Armory, 24680 Airport Rd, Coshocton, OH 43812, Coshocton County, Wooster Armory, 1400 Old Lincoln Way W, Wooster, OH 44691, Wayne County, and Dover Armory, 2800 N Wooster Ave, Dover, OH 44622, Tuscarawas County. We are also requesting release of 10 percent of the contract amount for a contingency fund in the amount of $7,171.50. The OFCC Energy Services design and administration fee is $8,677.52 for a total of $87,564.02.
