TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to increase Blanket Purchase Order Agreement No. BPLB14000047 with Danny’s Auto Painting and Body Work, Inc., and Blanket Purchase Order Agreement No. BPLB14000048 with Sada Karobar, dba Eddy’s Auto Body & Paint, both of Long Beach, CA, for as-needed auto body and repair services, by $200,000, for a total aggregate annual amount not to exceed $400,000 for a period of two years, with the option to renew for two additional one-year periods, at the discretion of the City Manager. (Citywide)

The action requested of the City Council today is required to authorize an additional contract authority of $200,000, taking the total aggregate annual amount not to exceed $400,000. This additional purchasing authority is required for this term, and is also being recommended for the remaining terms of the agreement.
