2.30.900   Standardization.
   Where the City Manager has determined that it is required by the health, safety or welfare of the people or employees of the city, or that significant costs savings have been demonstrated, the standardization of supplies, materials or equipment, including, without limitation, information technology property, for purchase or to be used in a public works project is permitted and the supplies, materials or equipment specifications may specify a single brand or trade name. The City Manager may consider the following factors in determining to standardize on a single brand or trade name:
   (a)   Repair and maintenance costs would be minimized;
   (b)   User personnel training would be facilitated thereby;
   (c)   Supplies or spare parts would be minimized;
   (d)   Modifications to existing equipment would not be necessary;
   (e)   Training of repair and maintenance personnel would be minimized; and
   (f)   Matching existing supplies, materials or equipment is required for proper operation of a function or program.
