Recommend Approval of Preferred Brands of Equipment for Construction Projects

Main Points

​N.C.G.S. 133-3 requires performance standards to be used when specifying products. The statute also allows preferred brands of equipment to be bid as an alternate on school system projects provided that the performance standards were approved by the Board. To be approved, the alternate must either provide a cost savings or maintain/improve the functioning of a process or system affected by the brand alternate. Approval is requested for preferred brand alternates for door hardware, HVAC equipment, controls, and plumbing equipment as indicated on the attachment.​



Fiscal Implications
Additional cost, if any, for a brand alternate will be identified on the bid and will be part of the total contract that the Board awards. Recommendation for Action: Board approval is requested.
