Title:Emergency Electrical Repairs, Centralia Correctional Center

Agency Reference Number:120-260-033
Agency:CDB - Capital Development Board
Purchasing Agency:CDB - Capital Development Board
Purchasing Agency SPO:Ken Morris

Status: Closed

Overview

Description and Specifications:
A recent inspection of two buildings at Centralia Correctional Center has uncovered some very serious and potentially life threatening safety issues concerning the electrical infrastructure. Of major concern is missing ground wires, ground wires connected to the wrong terminals, equipment not bonded, and various other code violations that pose a serious threat to the occupants and staff of the facility. Given the age and layout of the facility it is highly probable that all of the buildings comprising the facility are affected. The Department of Corrections has asked that CDB declare an emergency to repair the electrical system throughout the facility as soon as possible to prevent the threat to public health and safety, to minimize serious disruption in critical state services, and to protect against further loss or damage to the facility. This project began through the emergency selection of an Architect/Engineer (“A/E”); this exempts the selection from a 14-day solicitation required through Qualifications-Based Selection (“QBS”). Considering the time frames needed for the selection, negotiation and execution of A/E contracts followed by bidding and award procedures, electrical repairs at Centralia Correctional Center under the existing processes would likely not begin for several months. For this reason, emergency purchases are necessary to repair the electrical system as quickly as possible. WRF Engineers, LLC was selected because they have good prior performance on previous CDB projects and are relatively close to the site.
