At Tuesday's Count Commission Meeting, Commissioners heard a request for action from the ARC Department.
Request for Action On April 4th staff presented during a concept discussion the idea of entering into an agreement with a firm(s) that could provide temporary senior level staffing for particular projects. On April 11th, the Commission authorized staff to release a request for qualifications to firms to provide these services.
Two responses were received from Strategic Government Resources (SGR) out of Keller, Texas and Shockey Consulting Services LLC out of Overland Park, Kansas. On June 6th, the Commission approved a master service agreement with Strategic Government Resources (SGR) and were informed that staff would be bringing a separate RFA for approval of another master service agreement with Shockey Consulting Services LLC.
This agreement with Shockey Consulting Services LLC differs from the agreement with Strategic Government Resources in that Shockey employs staff with a wide range of experience that specialize in different areas that could benefit Saline County should a project and funding be identified. This Master Agreement does not commit to expending funds, rather it establishes set service fees, supplemental fees, and agreement terms which has been reviewed by County Counselor.
Budget Impact There is no budget impact with approving the agreement with Shockey Consulting Services LLC. Any projects identified to be assigned would also require a funding source to pay for the cost of Shockey staff to assist with that project.
The motion was approved 5-0.
