Title
AUTHORIZE the Chief Executive Officer to:

A. AWARD a firm fixed unit rate Contract No. OP671430003367 for uniform rental services with Prudential Overall Supply, for a not-to-exceed amount of $3,372,104 for the three-year base period and $3,372,104 for the one, three year option, for a combined total of $6,744,208 effective February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2023; and

ISSUE

Per the current ATU and TCU Collective Bargaining units' agreements, Metro is required to provide each of the units' employees up to 11 uniforms per employee, as well as provide laundry services for such regulation uniforms. Currently, uniform rental services are provided to over 2,300 Metro represented labor employees.

The existing uniform rental services Contract No. OP30002227 with Prudential Overall Supply will expire on March 31, 2017. Fitting employees, ordering uniform inventory and delivering new uniforms to 24 locations require five months to coordinate and implement a smooth transition between the existing and the new contract.

To avoid uniform rental services interruption, a contract modification is required to extend the existing contract period of performance and request additional authority to allow time for contract closeout. With a new contract award effective February 1, 2017, the period of performance for the existing contract must be extended through July 31, 2017 and additional expenditure authority approved in the amount of $260,000.
