Facts That Justify a Sole Source Procurement:a)
 
The District of Columbia Public Library utilized the services of Forrester Construction (FCC) for the construction of the Watha T. Daniel (Shaw) andthe Benning Libraries. Outside Unlimited, Inc. served as the commerciallandscape subcontractor to them and performed all of the work associatedwith the landscape design installation.
b)
 
FCC’s contract provided for re-planting as necessary during the first year.Outside Unlimited, Inc. re-planted as some plants did not establishthemselves, but the main need for replanting was the foot traffic through the plant beds. To date, 85% of the replanted materials have been trampled atBenning and approximately 10% at Shaw.
c)
 
This is not a basic landscaping job—grass cutting, edging, trimming etc., buta job that requires specialized plant knowledge and complex installationexperience. Outside Unlimited, Inc. has the design knowledge andexperience needed to install plantings per the architectural plan, provide thetrampling prevention means and provide the maintenance needed to ensurethat the plants are established and thrive.

Neighborhoods need plant and animal life to foster a sense of reflection , don't they? I hope that the re-plantings take place quickly and pedestrians overcome temptation to trample....

I am soooo happy to see this contract solicitation for the Benning Library. I hope though the selected contractor evaluates the pedestrian use in order to design appropriate landscaping to prevent future trampling. It may actually be a good idea to evaluate the outside design in general to look at outdoor art, seating, and extension of library use that accommodates pedestrian use.
