17

(2) To achieve the aspirational goals and the contract specific goals, the eChief pProcurement oOfficer shall undertake, in addition to the other measures provided herein, the following measures:
(Reserved)
Include with the bid specifications for each competitively bid contract a list of certified M.B.E.s and W.B.E.s that are available to perform the work required by the specifications or otherwise make such a list available to potential contractors.
Insert within specifications for each contract let through competitive bidding with an estimated value in excess of $10,000.00 for which contract specific goals have been established:

a description of this article and the program, including the requirement of an approved compliance plan; the requirements related to achieving the goals and counting M.B.E. or W.B.E. participation towards meeting the goals; if goals are not met, the requirement of documentation of the contractor's good faith efforts to achieve the goals, including the good faith efforts of M.B.E.s and W.B.E.s to achieve the goal for which they do not qualify; and a requirement that the contractor commit to the expenditure of at least the dollar value of the contract specific goals with one or more M.B.E.s and one or more W.B.E.s, or make good faith efforts to do so. This commitment may be met by the contractor's status as a M.B.E. or W.B.E., a joint venture with one or more M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s as prime contractor (to the extent of the M.B.E.'s or W.B.E.'s participation in such joint venture), subcontracting a portion of the work to one or more M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s, purchasing materials or services for the work from one or more M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s, or by any combination of the foregoing;
a requirement that prime contractors on eity City construction contracts notify M.B.E.s and W.B.E.s utilized on those contracts about opportunities on contracts without affirmative action contracting goals;
a requirement that where the contractor cannot achieve the contract specific goals it must document its good faith efforts to do so. In determining whether the contractor has made such good faith efforts, the performance of other contractors in meeting the goals may be considered. The eChief pProcurement eOfficer shall consider, at a minimum, the contractor's efforts to do the following:

Soliciting through reasonable and available means the interest of M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s that have the capability to perform the work of the contract. The contractor must solicit this interest within sufficient time to allow the M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s to respond. The contractor must take appropriate steps to follow up initial solicitations with interested M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s.
Providing interested M.B.E.s or W,E-.BtS W.B.E.s with adequate information about the plans, specifications and requirements of the contract, including addenda, in a timely manner to assist them in responding to the solicitation.
Negotiating in good faith with interested M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s that have submitted bids. Documentation of negotiation must include the names, addresses and telephone numbers of M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s that were solicited; the date of each such solicitation; a description of the information provided regarding the plans and specifications for the work selected for subcontracting; and evidence as to why agreements could not be reached with M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s to perform the work. That there may be some additional costs involved in soliciting and using M.B.E.s and W.E.B.s W.B.E.s is not a sufficient reason for a contractor's failure to meet the goals, as long as such costs are reasonable.
Not rejecting M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s as being unqualified without sound reasons based on a thorough investigation of their capabilities. The M.B.E.s' or W.B.E.s' standing within its industry, membership in specific groups, organizations, or associations and political or social affiliations are not legitimate causes for rejecting or not soliciting bids to meet the goals.

18

Making a portion of the work available to M.B.E. or W.B.E. subcontractors and suppliers and to select those portions of the work or material consistent with the available M.B.E. or W.B.E. subcontractors and suppliers, so as to facilitate meeting the goals.
Making good faith efforts, despite the ability or desire of a contractor to perform the work of a contract with its own organization. A contractor who desires to self-perform the work of a contract must demonstrate good faith efforts unless the goals have been met.
Selecting portions of the work to be performed by M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s in order to increase the likelihood that the goals will be met. This includes, where appropriate, breaking out contract work items into economically feasible units to facilitate M.B.E. or W.B.E. participation, even when the contractor might otherwise prefer to perform these work items with its own forces.
Making efforts to assist interested M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s in obtaining bonding, lines of credit or insurance as required by the eity City or contractor.
(I) Making efforts to assist interested M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s in
obtaining necessary equipment, supplies, materials or related assistance or services, including
participation in a eity City-sponsored mentor-protegee program; and
(J) Effectively using the services of the eity City; minority or women community organizations; minority or women contractors' groups; local, state and federal minority or women business assistance offices; and other organizations to provide assistance in the recruitment and placement of M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s.

This provision shall be in addition to, and not a substitute for, any other provision allowing inspection of the contractor's records by any officer or official of the eCity for any purpose;
review each proposed contract modification request that, by itself or aggregated with previous modification requests, increases the contract value by ten percent of the initial contract value or $50,000.00 whichever is less, for opportunities to increase participation of M.B.E.s or W.B.E.s already involved in the contract;

19

(e) insert in each contract containing a commitment to M.B.E. aneVef and W.B.E. participation:
a requirement of periodic reporting by the contractor to the chief procurement-officer Contracting Equity officer on all expenditures made to achieve compliance with the foregoing provisions.

a reguirement that the contractor cannot make changes to its contractual M.B.E. and W.B.E. commitments or substitute such M.B.E. or W.B.E. subcontractors without the prior written approval of the chief procurement officer Contracting Eguity officer. Unauthorized changes or substitutions, including performing the work designated for a subcontractor with the contractor's own forces, shall be a violation of this article and a breach of the contract with the city City, and may cause termination of the executed contract for breach, and/or subject the contractor to contract remedies or other sanctions. The facts supporting the request must not have been known nor reasonably should have been known by the parties prior to entering into the subcontract.

City water supplied for other than fire purposes through service pipes controlled by water meter shall be charged and paid for on the basis of the amount registered by such meter, except in cases where it shall be found that such meter is registering incorrectly, or has stopped registering, or has not been read before the issuance of the next bill.
In such cases, charge and payment shall be made on an estimate prepared by the Gemptfollef Comptroller based on the average of 12 preceding readings of such meter, excluding excessive or deficient readings.
Where such meter has been installed for a lesser period than one year, or where less than 12 competent readings exist, such estimate may be based on a lesser number than 12 readings taken preceding or subsequent to such incorrect or stopped registration. Changed condition of occupancy or use, making for greater or less consumption during such period of incorrect or stopped registration, shall be taken into consideration in the preparation of such estimate.
Once a meter is again read, if it registers the amount of water consumed in the intervening period, the following bill will reflect the actual water consumption, and will account for the estimated consumption for the period between water -meter readings. However, if the meter has not been read in 24 consecutive months, through no fault of the person who owns or controls the property, the bills for actual metered water will begin after a billing cycle during which the actual metered amount for the full period is recorded and only reflects that period, that is, without charging for a difference in the estimated and actual amounts for the period prior to the actual metered amount for that billing cycle.
