Whereas, New Jersey Local Public Contracts Law (N.J.S.A. 40A:11-5(1)(a) and 18A:18A-5(a)(i) requires notice of a Professional Services Contract that will exceed the entities bid threshold by publicly advertised. The professional service contract for Engineering services regarding the Design and Construction Administration Services in Connection with the Exposed Geomembrane Cover has exceeded the bid threshold that was originally awarded on February 13, 2020.
Now, therefore be advised that the professional services contract originally awarded to Cornerstone Environmental Group, LLC in the amount of $299,890.00 was increased by $123,230.00 to prepare the Addendum to the Closure Plan. In addition, a second amendment for $18,450.00 for Design and Construction Services in connection with the Exposed Membrane Cover to include 8 Acre Rain Cover was necessary. This brings the total contract amount to $441,570.00.
