After nearly six and a half hours of hearings and more than a half hour of closed session deliberation, council unanimously denied GEW’s protest of the award of a Smart Meter contract to Landis + Gyr. The hearing began during the April 30 council session and was completed during a special session Monday.
Despite the fact that the RFP was titled “Request for Proposals for Smart Meters” and the majority of the specifications described the technical requirements for 1,785 Smart electric meters or modules for adapting existing meters, GEW’s proposal did not include one Smart Meter.
The Department of Public Utilities review committee scored GEW’s bid “0” for that reason. Purchasing Manager Annalisa Miranda also determined that GEW’s appeal was without merit because it “included no provision of or pricing for meters, which is a core element of the requested services.”
GEW’s bid also included $10.5 million for the installation of gas and water meters, with no meters provided. The RFP requested pricing for1,568 gas meters or modules and 1,500 water meters or modules, but no pricing for installation.
