Addendum 1 - Independent Legal Counsel

CERTIFICATE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RECEIPT OF ADDENDUM

 

THE CITY OF READING

 

ADDENDUM NO. 1 RFP:              RFP – Independent Legal Counsel
 
DUE DATE:      February 14, 2018
                        3:00 P.M. Prevailing Time 

 

NOTICE

 

This addendum must be signed, attached to, and returned with your proposal to the City of Reading by the time and date indicated ABOVE:

 

On p. 9 of the RFP, it states: "By interim order dated October 5, 2017, the complaint in this matter has been stayed pending the Commission's decision on exceptions that have been filed by UGI."

 

However, on December 21, 2017, the PUC lifted the stay, denied UGI's exceptions, and returned the matter to the Office of Administrative Law Judge. Furthermore, on that same date, the ALJ - in an Interim Order Setting Litigation Schedule - established: (a) February 23, 2018 as the deadline for submission of all exhibits, written direct testimony, etc., and (*b) March 27-29 as the date for trial in Harrisburg.

 

Please be advised that the case is not stayed, and that there are these imminent deadlines approaching. Furthermore, since the deadline for responding to the RFP is not until February 14, with a review and award of contract to be made thereafter - this shows the necessity of seeking a continuance, as no one could reasonably be expected to get up to speed and prepare this complex case in the few days remaining before February 23.

 

I, HEREBY CERTIFY THAT THE CHANGES COVERED BY THIS ADDENDUM HAVE BEEN TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT.
