Impact Statement

Purpose of Proposed Legislation and Background Information

Authorize the Chief Procurement Officer to execute a construction contract for the Road 10 I and J North Fork BR MP 14.44 project to Kodiak Pacific Construction Co.  The construction cost based on bids received is $2,614,048.

The Portland Water Bureau (PWB) needs to make repairs in the Bull Run Watershed to United States Forest Service (USFS) Road 10 I and J from milepost 12.49 to 14.44. Road 10 is part of the primary access to Bull Run Lake. Road 10 provides access from Headworks and secondary egress from the watershed as well as access for emergencies, such as fires. This project will help ensure PWB staff can access the watershed safely and promptly for daily work and for emergencies.

This project will grind existing pavement, restore road subgrade, and repave two miles of Road 10. The road will be widened to current standard for width using fill. Culverts will be replaced, including three that will be upgraded to meet USFS Aquatic Organism Passage requirements. The proposed improvement will provide a safe road for PWB and USFS staff who use this road regularly. It is anticipated that the Project will be constructed in the summer/fall of 2023 and summer/fall 2024.

Ordinance No. 191108 was approved by City Council on December 14, 2022, authorizing the Chief Procurement Officer to issue a competitive solicitation for the Road 10 I and J North Fork BR MP 14.44 project on behalf of PWB.

No revenues will be impacted by this legislation.

This legislation does not change existing City policy.

Financial and Budgetary Impacts

Based on bids received, PWB anticipates the construction contract cost to be $2,614,048.  The engineer’s estimate for this project was $1,820,000 and the confidence level was moderate. Costs are higher than anticipated because the engineer’s estimate was calculated before the weight limit on the primary access bridge to the project site was severely reduced, requiring all heavy equipment and materials to use a lengthy alternative.

PWB conducted an analysis of the 4 bids received and determined that the low bid from Kodiak Pacific Construction Company represents a fair market price. The second lowest bid was less than 0.1% higher than the low bid, and the average bid was less than 10% higher than the low bid.

Funds are available in in the FY 2022-23 Budget and will be requested in the FY 2023-24 and FY 2024-25 Budgets.

No present positions will be created, eliminated or re-classified as a result of this legislation.

Community Impacts and Community Involvement

The construction contracting community, including contractors certified with the State of Oregon as minority, women, and emerging small businesses became involved when the Chief Procurement Officer advertised and publicly noticed the project on the City’s Online Procurement System on February 9, 2023.

Potential bidders were able to review the competitive solicitation, attend a pre-bid meeting, ask questions, provide comments and submit a bid in response to the Invitation to Bid (ITB).  Bids received resulted in the award of the construction contract.  Procurement Services managed the procurement process.  No protests were received.

No known persons or groups will be testifying.

No future public involvement is anticipated or necessary for this request.

100% Renewable Goal

The proposed action will lower the City’s total energy use by reducing the maintenance required for this segment of the road. The proposed action will have no impact on the City’s renewable energy use.

Budget Office Financial Impact Analysis
