The Road Department Joint Purchasing Team requests the approval of the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners for the award of a one-year contract, to Yellow Rose Transport, to provide blast furnace slag aggregate material to the Calhoun County Road Department and the Jackson Department of Transportation for an annual amount estimated at $264,000
The Calhoun County Purchasing Department collaborated with the Calhoun County Road Department (CCRD) and Jackson County Department of Transportation (JCDOT) to develop bid specifications designed to provide the delivery or pickup for blast furnace slag aggregate material to be used with the Dura Patch equipment in the construction and maintenance of roads throughout Calhoun and Jackson County. Bids were requested for slag material that is either delivered by the supplier or picked up by the road departments.
A formal bid RFB#116J-19 for Slag, was issued on October 7, 2019, seeking qualified contractors to provide blast furnace slag material for delivery or pickup. Two vendors responded to the solicitation with bids: Edward C. Levy (Dearborn, MI) and Yellow Rose Transport (Grandville, MI).
The Joint Purchasing Team composed of CCRD and JCDOT staff reviewed the proposals and selected Yellow Rose Transport for the award of the Slag Bid. As a result of the evaluation, Yellow Rose was determined to be the low apparent bidder and most qualified to provide blast furnace slag material to the CCRD and the JCDOT.
The Joint Purchasing Team for the CCRD/JCDOT recommends Yellow Rose Transport, for a contract to provide blast furnace slag aggregate material in the annual amount estimated at $264,000.
The funding estimated $264,000 necessary to purchase blast furnace material as recommended is available in the CCRD and JCDOT operating budgets and local road project contracts:
Slag CCRD - $189,000
Slag JCDOT - $75,000
