                                                                          APRIL 21,201 1




   A. Authorize the Chief Executive Officer to negotiate and award a 3 year time and
      material contract under RFP No. PS 100800-2642 with J.L. Patterson &
      Associates, Inc. the highest qualified proposer for Construction Management
      Services for Rail Facilities Capital Projects, for an amount not to exceed
      $2,500,000 inclusive of two 1 year options.

   B. Authorize the Chief Executive Officer to execute individual Task Orders within the
      Board approved authority.

   C. Should the CEO be unable to negotiate a satisfactory contract at fair and
      reasonable prices with the highest qualified proposer authorize the CEO to
      negotiate with the next most highly qualified firm, until a satisfactory contract can
      be negotiated.

On February 1, 2010, the Board adopted the Metro Acquisition Policy Statement which
includes changes to the levels and types of authority delegated to the CEO to approve
and award specified contract actions. Per the Metro Acquisition Policy, awards to
the other than the lowest, responsive, responsible bidder under sealed bid procedures
over $500,000 require Board approval.

On November 24, 2010, requests for proposals were issued for Construction
Management Consultant (CMC) services to assist Metro in managing the construction
of Rail Facilities Capital Projects.

The CMC Contract is a time and material contract for a term of 3 years with two, one
year options. All rates will be negotiated prior to award and be fully burdened for year
one through three. Rates for the option years will be negotiated prior to the end of the
base contract period.

The primary role of the CMC is to provide highly skilled and qualified individuals to
assist Metro as part of the Construction Management and administration of construction
contracts. The CMC staff will be part of a fully integrated Construction Management
team working with Metro in the project and field offices.

The CMC Contract is funded on a Task Order basis, involving a separate Task Order
budget for the CMC needs for each of the smaller Rail Facilities Capital Projects. The
Task Order separates the funding into manageable parts that allow for efficient cost
control and budget management by Metro. The Task Order will be issued for a not-to-
exceed amount utilizing the hourly rates set forth in the Contract. We can request
specific tasks to be performed within each Task Order, provided that the estimated cost
is within the total contract authorized funding limit.

We estimate that the Construction Management Support Services for the Rail Facilities
Capital Projects will be required starting the summer of 201 1.


The funding of $2,500,000 for this contract is included in the FYI Iand FYI2 proposed
5 year Capital Program in Cost Center 8510, Construction Procurement, under various
Rail Facilities Capital project numbers which are shown in Attachment B.

Task orders under this contract will be funded within the life of project (LOP) budgets for
each individual capital project. As such, approval of this action will not increase the
LOP budgets of any individual capital projects.

Since this is a multi-year contract, the Cost Center Manager and Executive Director of
Transit Project Delivery will be accountable for budgeting the contract cost in future
years, including any options exercised.

Impact to Budget

The current funding for this action will come from various approved Rail Facilities
Capital Project budgets, which are funded by various sources including Federal 5307,

Construction Management Support Services Contract No 100800-2642                   2
TDA 4, Proposition A and Proposition C and Pasadena Gold Line Insurance Settlement.
The funds have been specifically set aside for these uses as part of the Rail Facilities
Capital program. Approval of this action will not impact the bus and rail operating


The Board may reject the recommendation. We do not recommend this alternative, as
rejection will require an extensive hiring effort to provide additional permanent staff to fill
the required construction management positions. This would not be cost effective and
could cause delays, since many of the CMC resources are only required on a periodic
basis for peak workloads and specific tasks over the life of the project.


After Board approval of this CM Contract the Contracting Officer will negotiate and
award the contract in accordance with Metro Procurement Policies and Procedures.

A. Procurement Background

          A Request for Proposals was issued on November 24,2010, to identify the most
          highly qualified contractor to furnish labor, materials, and other related items
          required for the performance of Construction Management Services on Metro
          Rail Facilities Capital Projects on a Time and Materials basis. The Contractor
          may be called on to furnish a full range of construction management services or
          to provide individual staff members to augment Metro staff. Work will be
          assigned as needed on a task order basis. The Contract will be for a term of 3
          years, with 2 one-year options. Funding is contingent on fiscal year availability.

          Government Code 4525 et seq requires the selection of construction
          management contractors to be performed on the basis of professional
          qualifications. Price is not a factor in source selection.

B. Background on Recommended Contractor

         J. L. Patterson & Associates, Inc. (JLP) located at 725 Town and Country Road,
         #300, Orange, CA 92868 has been providing construction management services
         for over 20 years, and has experience with the original construction of the Metro
         Blue Line and continuing with the Metrolink Commuter Rail System, as well as
         the Metro Red Line. JLP is well versed in Metro's meticulous requirements in
         managing construction of rail projects.

C. Evaluation of ProposalslBids

         JLP was determined to be the most qualified proposer based upon the
         Evaluation Team's review of all submitted proposals.
         The procurement is in compliance with Metro Acquisition Policies and
         Procedures, and California Government Code section 4525 et seq.
         The factors against which the proposals were evaluated were identified in the
                o Experience with similar kinds of work.
                o Quality of Staff for the work to be done.
                o Understanding of the work.
         The Evaluation Team reviewed the contents of each proposal against the factors
         and subfactors and provided a rating of each proposal based on the maximum
         points allowed in each category; the proposals were ranked in descending order.
         Price is not a factor in the evaluation.
         See Attachment A-I for a complete list of proposers in alphabetical order.

D. CostlPrice Analysis Explanation of Variances

    Procurement staff will negotiate reasonable labor rates for each category of staff
    required by the statement of work, based on a thorough analysis of the rates

    The analysis includes, among other things, a comparison with similar firms offering
    the same services, a detailed analysis of rates and factors that will comprise the
    labor hour billing rates, and compliance with applicable accounting principles.

    If reasonable rates cannot be negotiated with the most highly qualified firm,
    negotiations will proceed, in order, to the next most qualified firm(s) until reasonable
    rates can be achieved.

   The pricing for each Task Order will be determined by applying the fixed negotiated
   labor rates plus the fee factor to the estimated number of labor hours required for the
   task to establish either a lump sum price or a Not-To-Exceed amount for each Task
