Request #19-774

As you know we had submitted a Bid for The Fire Alarm Project in several Divisions ( Project C1172-3 ) as a Prime.

 We request a copy of the Bids were submitted by 2 other bidders ( Johnsons Control & Robnet) to Metro in May 08/2019 for this project. 

Respectful, considering Metro will review the submitted Bids before any award recommendation, but we just wanted to bring to your attention the couple of followings items about the apparent low Bidder( Johnsons Control with $ 1,642,700.00), as bid documents indicated:

  1. The Bidder should  comply with SBE requirements and use a  Metro Certified SBE subcontractor  for at least 22% of the Bid for $ 361,394.00
  2. The Bidder should comply with DVBE requirement to use a DVBE Subcontractor for minimum 3% of work ( $ 49,281)  or a DVBE  supplier to purchase $ 82,135 through them( To consider $82,135 X 60% = $ 49,281).
  3. The Bidder should have a listed Subcontractor to ABATE HAZARDOUS MATERIAL  From Different Divisions , per Schedule "B" & Schedule "D". Considering per California State License law: Contractor carrying License A , B , ..etc can't abate hazardous material and to perform the abatement , should carry proper License ( C 22) and DOSH number to be able to request the AQMD Notifications. OSHA & EPA also had created the supporting documents for this issue.

These records are exempt from disclosure as the letter of intent to award has not been sent.  Therefore, the contract is still in the "blackout period". Pursuant to LACMTA's Procurement Policy 8.9 A, "After receipt of proposals, the information contained in them and the number or identity of offerors shall not be made available to the public or to anyone in the MT A not required to have access to the information in the performance of his or her duties. "Furthermore, Government Code 6255(a) allows withholding documents when "public interest served by not disclosing the record clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure of the record."

You may contact me at if you have any questions related to this public records request.
