Approval of a Special Procurement
First date of publication: June 22, 2023
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 June 20, 2023.
This special procurement is contract specific and a direct award for installation of Stracker Solar PV systems at the City of Ashland’s incorporation yard, located at 90 North Mountain. The City entered into a memorandum of understanding with Stracker Solar to develop grant application materials for the Oregon Department of Energy’s Community Renewable Energy Grant Program. The application was successful and the City and Stracker wish to enter into a formal contract for the construction phase.
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, Scott Fleury, PE. 20 East Main Street, Ashland Oregon, 97520. The seven (7) protest period will expire at 5:00pm on June 29th, 2023.
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.
