|This is a Notice of Hearing for a sole source change order request to increase a contract award with Public Financial Management Group (PFM). CMS seeks to develop a more sustainable, cost and operationally efficient method to provide transportation methods for state employees and agencies to carry out their work missions. The state's aging, high mileage fleet is not cost efficient, reliable or sustainable. PFM has conducted an in-depth analysis of the state's fleet and business transportation methods and has developed a set of recommendations to achieve the state's goals. CMS seeks a continuation of PFM's services as part of implementation planning for additional consulting hours, analysis and time at rates quoted in the original contract in furtherance of the study recommendations and toward achieving CMS' efficiency goals. |
