Total Costs: $27,591.06

Program: 1702 Vehicle & Equip Replacement Plan (13-7500)
Amount: $27,591.06    Budget Status: Budget Exists
Business Impact (Per NRS 237):
A Business Impact Statement is not required because this is not a rule.
Agenda Item Brief: Brief: Equipment Services is requesting authorization to spend $27,591.06 to purchase six radios for six new Police vehicles that will be going into service.

Background: This request is for the purchase of six new radios that will be installed in six new patrol vehicles for the Police Department. The old radios have been swapped between cars for many years and are showing their age. The old radios are starting to experience problems and need to be replaced.

Analysis: In sourcing these radios, if approved, the City would be using the joinder provision allowed under NRS 332.195, and purchasing these vehicles utilizing the Washoe County Contract. The contract that Washoe County has for radio equipment has historically been the most competitive. Utilizing the “joinder” provision allows the City to precisely define the equipment needed while foregoing the need to formally bid the item. The quote is attached for your reference.

Alternatives: 1. Council could approve this purchase as outlined by staff. 2. Council could deny this purchase. 3. Council could direct staff to provide alternatives to this purchase.

Recommended Motion: I move to approve this purchase of six radios from Dailey-Wells Communications in the amount of $27,591.06.
