Subject/Title: Authorize the City Manager to purchase six (6) Ford Crown Victoria interceptors for the Police Department from Bill Brandt Ford.

Submitted by: Pamela Ehler, Director of Finance and Information Systems
Becky Bridgen, Purchasing Agent

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager

Authorize the City Manager to purchase six (6) Ford Crown Victoria Interceptors for the Police Department from Bill Brandt Ford at a cost not to exceed $143,166.82.

In the vehicle replacement fund, the City has budgeted $120,007 to replace four (4) police vehicles. The Police Department budgeted $100,000 money for additional two (2) new Ford Crown Victoria Interceptors including accessories.

Staff contacted three (3) Ford dealers through an informal bid process with the following results:

Bill Brandt Ford, Brentwood $143,166.82
S & C Ford, San Francisco $141,880.81
Downtown Ford, Sacramento $161,586.64 (California State Contract price)

The difference of $1,286.01 between Bill Brandt Ford and S & C Ford of San Francisco is covered by the Local Preference Clause in the Purchasing Policy giving the local vendor preference of 3% of the lowest quote which would be $4,256.42.

The four (4) vehicles being replaced have paid into the Vehicle Replacement Fund a total of $120,007 and an additional $100,000 was budgeted in the Equipment budget for the Police Department. The funds not spent on the vehicles will purchase accessories such as laptop computers and cameras for the vehicles.
