DISCUSSION
City Council approval is requested to amend Contract No. 36147 with Oshkosh Airport Products to purchase and install a foam suppression system on an Oshkosh Striker crash fire truck.

On November 9, 2021, the City Council adopted a Resolution to execute a contract with Oshkosh Airport Products for the purchase of an Oshkosh Striker 6x6 crash response vehicle on the same terms and conditions afforded to Sourcewell, for a total contract amount of $1,086,956. The proposed foam system was not included in the original authorized purchase.

Following City Council purchase approval, the Eco EFP system was identified as required for use in aviation emergency response and mandatory annual testing. The proposed fire-suppressing foam system uses advanced technology, which lessens the environmental impact associated with older systems. The use of fire-suppressing foam without this FAA-approved system is prohibited. An amendment and additional funds are needed at this time to purchase and install the foam suppression system to complement the water suppression system in the vehicle specification and original quote. This amendment and additional fire suppression foam system is not expected to delay delivery.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Anita Lakhani on April 25, 2022, Purchasing Agent Michelle Wilson on April 7, 2022, and by Revenue Management Officer Geraldine Alejo on April 21, 2022.
