Purchasing Department Accomplishments

During Fiscal Year 2013 

  • Led the procurement of a solar array at the landfill, producing 1,872,000kWh of electricity per year for the City, added to the solar arrays on the four school roofs and Lowell Memorial Auditorium produces 2,309,650kWh of solar generated electricity for the City. This solar power is both cheaper for the City to use and better for the environment.
  • Assisted the School Department for multiple procurements for, new roofs, renovated bathrooms, water fountain repairs, a facility assessment, elevator maintenance and the sale of surplus equipment.
  • Worked with the procurement team to develop new RFP’s for the Parking Department, management, security, elevator repair, telecommunication and purchase of kiosks.
  • Developed the RFP for Net Metering credits, that will generate a minimum of $230,000 per year for 20 years and also contains upside protection that should net metering credits reach or exceed .1825 the City would get 22% of the credit. The 22% is the same percentage as the .03 cents received today based on the current .14 cent net meter credit.
