<br />DATE: June 6, 2017 <br /> <br />TO: Honorable Mayor and City Council <br /> <br />FROM: Sara Somogyi, Director of Recreation and Community Services <br /> By: Ryan Wright, Assistant Director of Recreation and Community Services <br /> <br />SUBJECT: PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH UNIFIED NUTRIMEALS <br />TO PROVIDE THE SENIOR MEALS PROGRAM IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO <br />EXCEED $78,600 <br /> Recommendation: Approve <br /> <br />SUMMARY <br /> <br />The City of Arcadia’s Senior Nutrition Program provides a warm, healthy meal each <br />Monday through Friday to approximately 90 seniors who pay the City’s established fee of <br />$2.00 per meal. The City issued a request for proposals to obtain bids to ensure the <br />quality and cost of each meal is the best option for the program. Based on the most <br />recent request for proposal process, it is recommended that the City Council approve, <br />and authorize and direct the City Manager to execute, a Professional Services <br />Agreement with Unified Nutrimeals to provide the senior meals program for Fiscal Year <br />2017-18, with an option for two, (1) one year renewal periods thereafter at the City’s <br />discretion. <br /> <br />BACKGROUND <br /> <br />On May 3, 2016, City Council approved a contract with Unified Nutrimeals to provide <br />daily senior meals program for Fiscal Years 2016-17 and 2017-18. <br /> <br />On January 25, 2017, the County of Los Angeles noted while the outreach was sufficient, <br />the City of Arcadia failed to obtain two viable bids and request written approval from the <br />County for non-competitive procurement prior to awarding the contract. In order to <br />continue CDBG funding for the 2017-18 Fiscal Year, it was necessary to rebid and <br />establish a new contract with the awarded vendor. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
