Simplot Partners is utilized for the purchase of soil amendments and grass seed used throughout City-maintained grass areas and City parks.  Staff plans to purchase additional seed during Fiscal Year 2018-19, which will exceed the $25,000 vendor cap.  The additional seed purchase will cover “over-seeding” needs at the Civic Center, Heritage Park, and all sports fields throughout Ayala Park.  Staff estimates that a $10,000 vendor cap increase will cover the additional purchases.



City Council authorization is required when the combined total of purchase orders and agreements for one vendor exceeds $25,000.  Therefore, staff recommends increasing the existing vendor cap with Simplot Partners, Fullerton, CA by $10,000, for a new total vendor cap of $35,000.  This request requires no appropriation as the expenditures are within the adopted Fiscal Year 2018-19 budgeted appropriations.
