Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT NO. 2 TO DABBAH, HADDAD, SOLEIMAN APC CONTRACT AGREEMENT (CONTRACT NO. C-18-078) FOR WORKERS' COMPENSATION DEFENSE ATTORNEY SERVICES (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

The City is self-insured for its Workers' Compensation Program and contracts with a third party administrator ("TPA") to administer the claims. The City contracts separately with a law firm to defend against litigated claims.
On May 1, 2018, City Council awarded a three-year contract ("2018 Agreement") to the Law Offices of Dabbah, Haddad & Suleiman ("DHS") (Exhibit No. 1). The 2018 Agreement was for the period of May 2, 2018 through May 1, 2021 with two (2) optional one-year contract extensions, for a total contract sum of $360,000. It was subsequently determined that the City and consultant had significantly underestimated the amount of litigation services that would be needed. On March 17, 2020 City Council approved Amendment No. 1 to the 2018 Agreement adding $400,000 to the contract amount.

Staff is now asking the City Council to approve Amendment No. 2 to the 2018 Agreement, correcting a discrepancy in the firm's name in connection with the 2018 Agreement, exercising the option to extend the term by one year through May 1, 2022 and adding an additional $200,000 to the contract sum for the extended term.


II. RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation


1. APPROVE Amendment No. 2 to the Contract Services Agreement by and between the City and Dabbah, Haddad, Soleiman, APC correcting a discrepancy in the firm's name, exercising the first of two one-year options to extend the term through May 1, 2022 and adding an additional $200,000 to the contract sum for the extended term.

2. AUTHORIZE the Mayor to execute Amendment No. 2 upon approval as to form by the City Attorney.
