Title: Septic Tank Pumping, Hauling and Repair Services
Issue Date: 05/28/2014
Request Opens: 06/19/2014
Prebid/Preproposal Conference: No
Payment for Bid Document: None
The intent of this Invitation for Bid is to hire one qualified and authorized contractor to provide all labor, transportation, materials, equipment, permits and fees necessary to provide annual septic tank pumping, hauling, and repair services on an as needed basis for various City departments in accordance with all specifications, terms, and conditions herein. Virginia State law requires anyone within a Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area (CBPA) to have their septic tank pumped or inspected once every five (5) years. Research has shown that failing septic systems contribute considerable amounts of pollution to groundwater and the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. By having the septic tank pumped, the number of solids leaving the septic tank and migrating into the drain field is greatly reduced, allowing the drain field to function as designed for a much greater length of time and reducing groundwater pollution
The contract shall begin July 1, 2014 and continue through June 30, 2015. Contract shall continue in force thereafter from year to year, not to exceed an additional two (2) one-year periods, unless terminated by either party at the end of the first year or at the end of any subsequent year, by giving the remaining party thirty (30) days prior written notice. Contract may be extended through June 30, 2017. Initial rates and subsequent renewal rates must be guaranteed for a minimum of twelve (12) months. Any increase in rates shall be limited to the lesser of the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U) ??? Other Goods and Services (unadjusted for the current 12 month period) or three percent (3%). The City does not guarantee any rate increase.
