Bill BL2020-337

An ordinance approving Amendment 1 to the contract for program management services between Gobbell Hays Partners, Inc. and the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, which extends the contract term for twenty-eight months.

WHEREAS, pursuant to a Request For Proposal, Gobbell Hays Partners, Inc. (“Gobbell Hays”) was selected by the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County (“Metro”) to perform program management services; and,

WHEREAS, the contract commenced on August 26, 2015 and has a termination date of August 26, 2020; and,

WHEREAS, Amendment 1 to the contract extends the term of the agreement for an additional twenty-eight months; and,

WHEREAS, Section 4.12.160(A) of the Metropolitan Code limits the term of contracts for services to sixty (60) months, unless otherwise authorized by the Metropolitan Council; and,

WHEREAS, this contract engages Gobbell Hays to perform project management services outside of the range of expertise of Metropolitan Government departments; and,

WHEREAS, Gobbell Hays has been deeply involved in the various projects ongoing on the Fairgrounds property for more than two years and could not be replaced cost effectively while those projects continue; and,

WHEREAS, approval of the contract amendment will benefit the citizens of Nashville and Davidson County because replacement of Gobbell Hays would entail a substantial loss of expertise and experience on the various Fairgrounds projects, which would likely result in additional costs to the Metropolitan Government and potential project delays.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:

Section 1. That Amendment 1 to the contract between Gobbell Hays Partners, Inc. and the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, a copy of which is attached hereto and incorporated herein, is hereby approved.

Section 2. This ordinance shall take effect from and after its passage, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
