RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the Council of the City of Hampton (the Council) has established that public safety in the City of Hampton is a strategic priority and that effective and efficient communications among first responders is critical to the successful delivery of public safety services to our citizens; and

WHEREAS, public safety communications combine diverse technologies from analog low band systems over 20 years old to the latest 800 MHz digital, trunked systems; and

WHEREAS, to effectively plan and design such systems, in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge is required in multiple technologies, including voice, data, AVL, encryption, and imaging; and

WHEREAS, a comprehensive understanding of the existing and emerging regional public safety communications capabilities is critical to the successful understanding of the City of Hamptons public safety communications requirements; and

WHEREAS, several major capital projects are currently underway or scheduled that have direct impact on the current communications infrastructure and capabilities impacting the future communications requirements; and

WHEREAS, the financing of these initiatives will require the City of Hampton (the City) to provide a significant investment therein; and

WHEREAS, the Citys Police Division requires the services of a public safety communications consultant to efficiently advise it and coordinate its efforts in this complex and vital area and to provide related reports within no more than 120 days due to the necessity to integrate the timeline of the 800 Mhz rebanding mandate as it relates to and impacts other planned and pending citywide capital projects; and

WHEREAS, Federal Engineering, Inc., has been determined to be the only source practicably available to provide the comprehensive services in the required timeframe at fair and reasonable pricing consistent with that provided to neighboring jurisdictions, and funding to pay for the services to be rendered under the services contract is available in the CIP Fund Public Safety Radio System.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HAMPTON, VIRGINIA as follows:

1. That the contract for procuring the services described above may be negotiated and awarded to Federal Engineering, Inc., as sole source without competitive sealed bidding or competitive negotiation as set forth in Virginia Code 2.2-4303.E;

2. That the City Manager or his authorized designee is authorized to negotiate and execute a services contract with Federal Engineering, Inc.; and

3. That the notice awarding the services contract to Federal Engineering, Inc., shall be posted in a public place pursuant to Virginia Code 2.2-4303.E.

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, held on June 20, 2007.
