RESOLUTION NO. 970790

 

Providing for the standardization of contract forms among City departments.

 

WHEREAS, the City enters into contracts through its various departments; and

 

WHEREAS, because various departments have different procedures, contracts by different departments which are similar in content are different in form; and

 

WHEREAS, this variance in contracts which are of the same type creates a situation which is inefficient for the City and is confusing to entities which deal with the City; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council desires that such contracting procedures be standardized; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That, within the limits of the City Charter, the City Manager shall establish a system that will cause all City departments to use the same procedures in bidding and entering into contracts and to use the same templates for such contracts.

 

Section 2. That the City Manager shall report to the Council on the progress of the program within 30 days after the passage of this resolution and thereafter quarterly until the program is complete.
