  18. To approve a Resolution for sole source bids, as follows: Updated 11/20/14
    WHEREAS, the Brick Township Board of Education (hereinafter referred to as the Board) intends to upgrade the HVAC control systems for use in certain District facilities; and
    WHEREAS, it is the recommendation of the District Architect/Consulting Engineer that the bid specifications require Andover Controls, as manufactured by Schneider Electric, as the designated HVAC control system, and
    WHEREAS, the Business Administrator/Board Secretary has certified that the Andover control System is of a specialized and proprietary nature, and is necessary for the efficient conduct of the affairs of the Brick Township School District as more specifically set forth below:
     

    Specialized Nature:

    The Schneider Electric/Continuum based BACnet system is proprietary in that the system utilizes a unique programming language and ‘brand specific functionality’ that is unlike any other manufacturer.  No other manufacturer of similar products is 100% similar and compatible to this product.  The continued use of Schneider Electric/Continuum products is necessary for the continuity of building maintenance and facilities support. Therefore the use of another product will undermine the functionality of the existing equipment and make support of the Board’s facilities more costly.,

    Necessary for the Conduct of the Board’s Affairs:

    The public need for the proprietary equipment is of a compelling nature such that the value to the public that is gained by the proprietary designation outweighs the public benefit of permitted brand name or equivalent and the benefit of such competition. The Schneider Electric/Continuum System is essential to the District’s ability to maintain their buildings in a consistent manner utilizing continuity in operation, maintenance and repairs. Although competing products could essentially provide ‘similar functionality’ and provide a common ‘end result’, the Board has a significant investment in the Schneider Electric/Continuum brand and has employees and staff trained in the programming, operation and maintenance. As such, the maintenance costs and emergency repair costs are reduced. Utilizing a competing product would require new and additional training and additional spare parts and attic stock. In summary, competing products may present minor savings in up front costs but will certainly be more expensive to the public during the life of the equipment.
    WHEREAS, based on the foregoing, the Board finds the public need to sole source the Schneider Electric/Continuum products is appropriate and outweighs the benefit of competition through the use of ‘brand name or equivalent’;  and
    WHEREAS, NJSA 18A: 18A-15 (d) and NJAC 5:34-9.1 et seq, authorize the advertisement of bids that include proprietary designation;
    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Board hereby authorizes the advertisement of bids that include a proprietary designation for the purchase of Schneider Electric/Continuum products and related equipment.
    The Board authorizes the Business Administrator and Board Secretary to advertise for bids consistent with this resolution. A copy of this resolution as well as the Business Administrator/Board Secretary’s certification to the Board pursuant to NJAC 5:34-9.1(b) will be included and become part of the specification.

  19. To approve a Resolution authorizing a review of Compliance with Prior Annual Continuing Disclosure Obligations and Participation in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Municipalities Continuing Disclosure Cooperation Initiative, as follows:


    WHEREAS, the above-defined Issuer has previously issued one or more series of bonds, including bond issues in the past five (5) years pursuant to one or more preliminary and final official statements (collectively, the "Bonds"); and
    WHEREAS, in connection with the issuance of such Bonds, the Issuer covenanted with Bondholders to provide certain secondary market disclosure information on an annual basis to the Nationally Recognized Municipal Securities Information Repositories (pre-2009) and to the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board's Electronic Municipal Market Access Data Port (2009 to present) ("EMMA"), which secondary market disclosure information may consist of one or more of the following: audited financial statements, budgets, other financial and operating data and ratings changes; and
    WHEREAS, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") has recently focused attention on what it alleges is widespread failure of local government issuers across the nation to meet their continuing disclosure obligations and misrepresentation through material misstatements in an official statement (innocently, inadvertently or otherwise) of past compliance with continuing disclosure obligations; and  
    WHEREAS, in an effort to remedy these perceived issues, the SEC has implemented the Municipalities Continuing Disclosure Cooperation Initiative (the "SEC Initiative"), a limited-time program ending at 5:00 p.m. on December 1, 2014, that encourages issuers of municipal bonds, including the Issuer, to self-report possible material misstatements or omissions, made in the past five (5) years in an official statement regarding compliance with prior continuing disclosure obligations; and
    WHEREAS, should the SEC determine that an issuer has made material misstatements in an official statement regarding compliance with prior continuing disclosure obligations, issuers participating in the SEC Initiative agree to accept certain non-monetary penalties, in lieu of unknown, and, by all accounts, hefty monetary and non-monetary penalties the SEC has threatened on issuers that do not participate in the SEC Initiative; and
    WHEREAS, by participating in the SEC Initiative, issuers agree to accept the following penalties, if imposed by the SEC (i) compliance with a cease and desist order in which the issuer neither admits nor denies the findings of the SEC, (ii) implementation of policies, procedures and training regarding continuing disclosure obligations, (iii) compliance with all existing continuing disclosure undertakings, (iv) cooperation with any further SEC investigation, (v) disclosure of settlement terms in any final official statement issued within five years of the date of institution of the proceedings, and (vi) production to the SEC of a compliance certificate regarding the applicable undertakings on the one year anniversary of the proceedings; and
    WHEREAS, on July 24, 2014, the Division of Local Government Services issued Local Finance Notice 2014-9 (i) alerting local governments to the SEC Initiative, (ii) strongly recommending that local governments examine their continuing disclosure contractual obligations and past official statements in order to determine if it is advisable for an issuer to participate in the SEC Initiative, and (iii) cautioning, among other things, that local governments that fail to complete a disclosure assessment in connection with the SEC Initiative will likely have difficulty accessing capital markets; and
    WHEREAS, the Issuer desires to conduct a disclosure audit that will (i) summarize the results of the Issuer's prior compliance with its secondary market disclosure obligations, and (ii) compare those results to the statements made by the Issuer in its official statements regarding past compliance (the "Disclosure Audit"); and
    WHEREAS, the Issuer further desires to retain the services of a disclosure specialist to conduct the Disclosure Audit; and
    WHEREAS, based on the results of the Disclosure Audit, and weighing heavily the known non-monetary penalties that may come through the Issuer's participation in the SEC Initiative versus the unknown, and, by all accounts, hefty monetary and non-monetary penalties the SEC has threatened on issuers that do not self-report, the Issuer further desires to delegate to the Business Administrator/Board Secretary, in consultation with the Issuer's general counsel, bond counsel, auditor and other finance professionals, the power to prepare and submit all documentation required to enter the Issuer's Bond issues into the SEC Initiative, as necessary;

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE ISSUER, AS FOLLOWS:

              Section 1.       The Issuer hereby authorizes completion of the Disclosure Audit.

              Section 2.       The Issuer hereby authorizes the Business Administrator/Board Secretary to engage the services of a disclosure specialist to complete the Disclosure Audit; provided that the award of any contract in connection therewith meets the requirements of the Public Schools Contracts Law (N.J.S.A. 18A:18A-1 et seq.).

              Section 3.       In the event the Disclosure Audit reveals that the Issuer may have made a material misstatement regarding the Issuer's compliance with prior continuing disclosure undertakings, the Issuer hereby authorizes and directs the Business Administrator/Board Secretary to prepare and submit all documentation necessary to enter the Issuer's applicable Bond issues into the SEC Initiative.

              Section 4.       Any action taken by the Business Administrator/Board Secretary or any other officer of the Issuer, with respect to the Disclosure Audit, the engagement of a disclosure specialist and participation in the SEC Initiative, is hereby ratified and confirmed.

              Section 5.       This resolution shall take effect immediately.
