COUNTY OF SAN MATEO

BOARD MEETING DATE:

Honorable Board of Supervisors
Sheriff Don Horsley
Amendment to the Agreement with Johnson Controls, Inc.
Adopt a Resolution authorizing the President of the Board of Supervisors to execute an Amendment to the Agreement with Johnson Controls, Inc., for security enhancements and maintenance services at the San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC), increasing the contract amount by $39,186, for a total obligation of $403,657.
When the Sheriff's Office assumed responsibility for security of the SMMC campus in the Fall of 2002, one important task was to upgrade the eclectic array of existing old, new, leased and owned security equipment in place throughout the campus. Much of the older equipment was not functional, was not being routinely maintained or serviced, had not been formally inventoried in years
The purpose of this Amendment is to add necessary security enhancements to two areas at SMMC. These changes are required for effective security and to respond to prior security incidents at certain locations. The additions have been reviewed and approved by the SMMC administration, and the cost of the changes was already added as a modification to the annual Health Security Budget in September, in anticipation of the improvements being completed this year.
The Amendment keeps the commitment of ensuring basic health and safety for all, and Goals Nos. 5, 7, and 8, in that improved hospital campus security will ensure that residents have better access to healthcare and preventive care; will help the county to maintain and enhance the public safety of all residents and visitors; and ultimately will help vulnerable people, the aged, disabled, mentally ill, at-risk youth and others achieve a better quality of life.
The FY 2003-04 cost for the planned improvements was already included within the revised September, 2003 Health Security budget. Johnson Controls agreed to spread the total cost of this Amendment ($39,186) over the remaining total months of the original Agreement, which reduces the cost in each fiscal year and spreads it across several years. Therefore, there is no additional net cost incurred for the Medical Center or for the County as a result of this Amendment.
