Funds for any Project Agreements issued under this Professional Services Agreement (PSA) already exist within either the Seismic Safety Project (SSP) Budget or other Board of Supervisors (Board) approved Capital Budgets.
CMSI was selected via an informal and competitive Quality Based Selection process to provide construction management and related professional services for the SSP and miscellaneous Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (VMC at Bascom) capital projects. A PSA was executed by the Board on June 25, 2013 (Item 153), with a maximum compensation limit (MCL) of $700,000 and a four-year term through June 25, 2017. The PSA was amended by the Board on November 1, 2016 (Item 60), increasing the MCL by $700,000 to a current MCL of $1,400,000 and extending the term through December 31, 2020.
REASONS FOR RECOMMENDATION
When the original PSA for this consultant was signed it was expected that an amendment would eventually be needed to add both capacity to and extend the time of the contract, as the latter stages of the SSP were not fully defined. As additional projects such as the Ancillary Building Improvements, relocation of Hospital Administration, upgrades to nursing units throughout the hospital, and demolition and seismic upgrade of Old Main have been programmed and are now either in the design stages or starting construction, an amendment must now be prepared to include funding for this broadened scope of work. These additional projects, which are part of the overall SSP, extend the requirement for project management and related professional services provided by CMSI. This additional funding will allow the County to recognize the benefits of these professional services within the current term of the PSA.
This action will have a positive impact on children and youth through the Access to Health Care indicator. The projects supported by this PSA will allow the County to better serve the children and youth of the community.
This action will have a positive impact on seniors. The projects supported by this PSA will allow the County to better serve the seniors of the community.
This action will have positive sustainability implications, as projects supported by this PSA are being designed and constructed in accordance with the Board’s sustainability policies.
The VMC at Bascom SSP addresses seismic safety compliance and patient care issues with the first phase of the project estimated at nearly $1 billion. The first phase of the project includes the construction of the Sobrato Pavilion, consisting of 168 replacement hospital beds, the construction of the Services Building Replacement building, seismic upgrade of other buildings, demolition of Old Main Hospital, and other related projects.
CONSEQUENCES OF NEGATIVE ACTION
The amendment would not be approved at this time.
