Manny Crisostomo Sacramento Bee file i Firms seeking to secure contracts as part of the city of Sacramento’s water meter installation program will have to produce more than a favorable price. They also will have to meet criteria in areas of customer service and local hiring. The City Council voted Thursday to scrap the practice of awarding contracts to the lowest bidder and instead create a pool of pre-qualified companies that would win contracts based in part on subjective criteria, such as customer satisfaction. City officials said the selection process will be based on the contractors qualifications, performance-based criteria and pricing. The process, they said, will allow the city to award contracts to qualified contractors and repeat the process multiple times if the contractors perform well and within budget. City officials said they are looking for contractors who will keep residents informed of construction activities. Councilman Eric Guerra said the city needs to focus on contractors that not only do good work, but who have a bedside manner in terms of customer service. Contractors also will be required hire a minimum of 5 percent of their workers for the project from among local residents, specifically those from high-proverty areas including Meadowview, Oak Park and Del Paso Heights. The program has set a local hire goal of 20 percent and provides an incentive to meet the goal by awarding more points to contractors in the evaluation process based on the level of local hiring they commit to for the project.. .The citys water meter project was scheduled to be completed by 2025, but last year the City Council expedited that schedule, setting a 2020 completion date and pushing the Utilities Department to look for ways to speed up work. The shorter time line is expected to save the city $65.3 million, according to a city staff report presented last year when the acceleration was proposed.interview skills teaching jobhttp://wowkevinsimpson.pdxrwa.org/2016/07/30/an-intro-to-common-sense-solutions-in-curriculum-vitae
