This action calls for the issuance of an RFP for legislative consulting services for AQMD in Sacramento for 2012. The RFP will also indicate that the services contract may be extended for up to two additional one-year terms.

  7. Issue Program Announcement for Natural Gas Truck Projects and Amend Contract (PDF, 598kb)
    Liu (909) 396-2105
    Mail graphic (cliu@aqmd.gov)
    The AQMD has received grant awards from federal and state agencies for the purchase of heavy-duty natural gas trucks. These include the CEC, U.S. EPA, DOE Clean Cities Program and the Department of Transportation (DOT). These grants have helped to successfully deploy hundreds of natural gas trucks in the goods movement sector. Additional natural gas truck projects are needed to expend the remaining funds under these grants. This action is to issue a Program Announcement to solicit natural gas truck projects in the amount of approximately $5.2 million, comprised of $1.8 million from DOT for solid waste collection trucks and about $3.4 million in returned and remaining funds from the CEC, U.S. EPA and DOE grants for goods movement trucks. This action is also to amend an existing contract to change the source of funds. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, July 22, 2011; Recommended for Approval)

  8. Recognize Funds and Execute Contracts for Truck Retrofit Projects (PDF, 46kb)
    Liu (909) 396-2105
    Mail graphic (cliu@aqmd.gov)
    The Board previously awarded a contract to Gardner Trucking for $1 million to retrofit 200 heavy-duty diesel trucks with diesel particulate filters (DPFs) under a U.S. EPA grant. This project, unfortunately, cannot proceed due to lack of financial resources by Gardner Trucking. In order to meet the U.S. EPA deadline, staff proposes utilizing the funds for other diesel truck retrofit projects. This action is to recognize the U.S. EPA Grant and execute contracts to retrofit heavy-duty diesel trucks with DPFs at a total cost not to exceed $1,000,000. (Reviewed: Technology Committee, July 22, 2011. Less than a quorum was present; the Committee Members concurred that this item be approved by the Board.)

  9. Approve Contract Modifications and Awards under FY 2010-11 AB 2766 Discretionary Fund Work Program and Fund Transfer for Miscellaneous Costs in FY 2011-12 (PDF, 103kb)

    Hogo (909) 396-3184
    Mail graphic (hhogo@aqmd.gov)
    As part of their FY 2010-11 AB 2766 Discretionary Fund Work Program, the MSRC issued an RFP and several Program Announcements to implement various programs. On July 21 and August 18, 2011, the MSRC approved multiple new contracts under these Programs. Also as part of their FY 2010-11 Work Program, the MSRC approved augmentation of previously awarded contracts to provide alternative fuel school bus incentives and awards to implement “511” mobile applications. Additionally, every year the MSRC adopts an Administrative Budget which includes transference of funds to the AQMD Budget to cover administrative expenses. The MSRC seeks AQMD Board approval of these contract awards and modifications and the fund transfer. (Reviewed: Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee, July 21 and August 18, 2011; Recommended for Approval)

  10. Execute Contracts for Short- and Long-Term Systems Development, Maintenance and Support Services (PDF, 37kb)
    Marlia (909) 396-3148
    Mail graphic (cmarlia@aqmd.gov)
    On May 6, 2011, the Board approved the release of an RFP to obtain short- and long-term systems development, maintenance and support services. This action is to execute new contracts to obtain these services on a task order basis. Executing contracts with multiple bidders provides a pool of well-qualified professionals who have demonstrated their understanding of and expertise in meeting agency needs and enables AQMD to obtain cost-effective and technically responsive support. Funds for these services ($520,500) are included in the FY 2011-12 Budget. (Reviewed: Administrative Committee, July 15, 2011. Less than a quorum was present; the Committee Members concurred that this item be approved by the Board.)

  11. Execute Sole Source Contract for Three-Year Service Agreement for AQMD Access to On-line Legal Research Libraries (PDF, 18kb)
    Wiese (909) 396-3460
    Mail graphic (kwiese@aqmd.gov)
    The current service agreement with LexisNexis to provide AQMD with on-line legal research libraries ended June 30, 2011. This action is to enter into a new three-year agreement with LexisNexis under the State of California’s Master Service Agreement. In the future, the State may opt to change on-line legal research providers and the AQMD would benefit from changing to the State’s provider at that time. A sole-source contract is necessary since AQMD secures such services under the State of California’s agreement with LexisNexis at substantially lower rates than the open market. (Reviewed: Administrative Committee, July 15, 2011. Less than a quorum was present; the Committee Members concurred that this item be approved by the Board.)

    PUBLIC HEARINGS


  31. Amend Rule 1147 – NOx Reductions from Miscellaneous Sources (PDF, 3.5mb)
    (Continued from July 8, 2011 Board Meeting)
    Tisopulos (909) 396-3123
    Mail graphic (ltisopulos@aqmd.gov)
    To respond to compliance challenges currently being experienced, staff is recommending delay of the NOx emission limit compliance dates for equipment subject to Rule 1147. The proposed rule also limits the requirements for fuel and time meters. PAR 1147 will also reduce compliance cost due to emissions testing and clarify existing requirements. PAR 1147 will result in delayed emissions reductions from equipment subject to this rule. However, PAR 1147 would achieve the same reductions as the existing rule by 2014. This action is to adopt the resolution: 1) Certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Assessment for Proposed Amended Rule 1147; and 2) Amending Rule 1147. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, April 15, June 17 and July 22, 2011)

  32. Amend Rule 1470 - Requirements for Stationary Diesel-Fueled Internal Combustion and Other Compression Ignition Engines (PDF, kb)
    Staff is recommending that the public hearing on this item be continued to the October 7, 2011 Board Meeting.
    Chang (909) 396-3186
    Mail graphic (echang@aqmd.gov)
    The proposal would amend Rule 1470 in response to the 2007 and 2011 amendments to the state Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) for Stationary Compression Ignition Engines. The key amendments primarily impact new stationary emergency standby diesel engines NOx and PM requirements. The NOx emission limits would be removed due to technical feasibility, and PM requirements would be retained for sensitive receptors. Others would have to comply with Rule 1401 risk assessment and specified emission rates. Other amendments are also proposed to directly reference the ATCM or to coincide with the ATCM amendments. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, June 17, 2011)
