Approval of a Special Procurement
First date of publication: January 17, 2018
A request for approval of a Special Procurement was presented to and approved by the
City Council, acting as the Local Contract Review Board, on January 16, 2018.
The City of Ashland will directly award a contract for professional services to remove and
replace sand filter media in all six dual media filters and minor repairs to filter #4 as
defined in the “Invitation to Bid – Trade Services, Intermediate Procurement” dated
October 12, 2017, and maintain a completion date of April 30, 2018. The work will be
performed within the currently adopted City of Ashland FY18/19 Biennium Budget.
It has been determined based on written findings that the Special Procurement will be
unlikely to encourage favoritism in the awarding of public contracts or to substantially
diminish competition for public contracts, and result in substantial cost savings or
substantially promote the public interest in a manner that could not be realized by
complying with the requirements that are applicable in ORS 279B.055, 279B.060,
279B.065, or 279B.070.
An affected person may protest the request for approval of a Special Procurement in
accordance with ORS 279B.400 and OAR 137-047-0300. A written protest shall be
delivered to the following address: City of Ashland, Public Works Department, Paula
Brown, P.E., 20 E. Main St. Ashland, OR. The seven (7) day protest period will expire at
5:00pm on January 24, 2018.
This public notice is being published on the City’s Internet World Wide Web site at least
seven days prior to the award of a public contract resulting from this request for approval
of a Special Procurement.
