Information to add to agenda items on spending

PreviousPage 2 of 2

Had another thought on this topic today. Andrew, would it be feasible on the memo’s to put the amount under/over budget? Also, I would like to see an explanation on items especially on Best Value Bids where the lowest bid wasn’t selected. Provide some sort of explanation ex. “Project can be completed 120 days faster.” I think it would continue to show transparency to our citizen’s, and give us more information during agenda review. Thought?

Hello?

Good morning, Councilmember Craft,

I am going to work with Laura and her team to see what additional options we may have to share more details.  I can certainly see the benefit of specifically calling out the type of bid we used and the reasons why, as well as mentioning the criteria like you said as far as explaining why the final company was selected.

Thank you,
Andrew
