17. Purchasing and Contracts

17.A For Possible Action: To approve the purchase of crack sealant from Maxwell Products, Inc. for a not to exceed annual amount of $140,000 to be funded from the Street Repair Account. Maxwell Products holds the patent and is considered a sole source for crack sealing packaging. (Laura Tadman, and Darren Schulz,

Staff Summary: Due to compatibility issues with the crack sealing equipment utilized by the Streets Division of the Carson City Public Works Department, Maxwell crack sealant packaging is the only packaging that does not clog the machine. Maxwell product is the inventor of the Polyskin packaging (a foam box) used on this product. This product helps to prevent build up (clogging) in the machine and allows for rapid melting and even mixing once it is placed into the kettle. This improves the performance of the machine and increases crew efficiency. The packaging is structurally rigid, so it does not deteriorate and or fuse together with other blocks during shipping. This also provides for increased efficiency in transport to the job site and safety in loading of the machine.

17.B For Possible Action: To approve Contract No. 1617-040 Information Technology Hardware, a joinder contract with Insight Public Sector through US Communities Contract #4400006644; Mountain States Networking/Cisco through NASPO (National Association State Procurement Officials) Contract #AR233; Dell through NASPO Contract #AR602; Apple through NASPO Contract #MNWNC-102; CDW Government LLC through NIPA (National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance); and SHI International Corp. through NASPO/WSCA Contract #ADSP011 00000358-3 for an amount not to exceed $500,000 from various city accounts as approved in the FY17 budget.
(Laura Tadman, and Eric VonSchimmelmann,

Staff Summary: Each year we bring the vendors that we do a majority of the IT purchases with to the Board of Supervisors for approval. While many of the individual purchases and projects are not significant themselves, when combined together throughout the year they have a significant total cost to the city. This year is no exception and we are requesting you approve these major vendors for IT Hardware, Software and Services not to exceed $500,000 in total. This amount was derived from looking at our historical yearly purchases.

One of the parcels consists of the remaining section of the high-elevation irrigated meadow shared by Horsecreek Ranch.
