The public hearing is for the purpose of receiving public comment from interested parties on the draft findings for an exemption to the competitive bidding requirement for the Oregon Zoo Boardwalk and Gate J Security Improvement Project (the Project). In accordance with the draft findings, Metro’s Procurement Services has recommended that the Metro Contract Review board exempt the Project from the requirements of competitive bidding under ORS Chapter 279C and Metro Contract Review Board Administrative Rules Sections 49-600-670 and utilize an alternative competitive solicitation method. At the hearing, after an opportunity for receipt of public comment, the Metro Contract Review Board will consider adoption of the draft findings and approval by resolution of the utilization of a Request for Proposals process to solicit a Construction Manager/General Contractor for the Project. The Project consists of 1) investigating current damage to the Oregon Zoo Boardwalk, repairing as necessary and designing a more robust walking surface and 2) installing a keycard system and adequate security camera at Gate J. The overall Project budget is estimated to be $800,000.
