Roads awarded county business without bids

February 25, 2008

In 2006, the Escambia County Board of Commissioners approved staff recommendations that awarded Roads, Inc. $3,578,380.16 in paving and drainage work without bids. Road, Inc., like other contractors, offered a general price for such work earlier in the year. Staff can recommend who to give work projects during the year. Not sure what determines when they have to have a RFP.

8/3/06 BCC approves $140,632.12 under general drainage and paving contract. No Bid.
8/17/06 BCC approves $3,000,000 for county wide paving under general drainage and paving contract. No Bid.
11/16/06 BCC approves $437,748.04 for Bill Dickson Park. No Bid.

There was one RFP that Roads, Inc. was the only bidder:
11/2/06 BCC approves $974,510 for Li-Fair Estates drainage. No other bids.
