BACKGROUND: 

The Clark County Department of Aviation has an existing agreement with Kaplan, Kirsch & Rockwell LLP (Company) to provide legal advisory consulting services for the oversight of the SNSA project. The legal services provided include, but are not limited to, project planning support, oversight for the preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement, and guidance on issues related to the federal processes and approvals for the SNSA project.

Company has the experience, expertise, qualified personnel, and vital resources to accomplish these professional services. Company attorneys have longstanding institutional knowledge of the Clark County Airport System and significant experience related to federal environmental regulations, transportation facilities, and project development.

This amendment will add three (3) additional one-year renewal options. The cost of each renewal option, if exercised, shall not exceed $1,250,000.00 annually. As part of this amendment, an outreach plan has been developed to disseminate information to the community that will serve in lieu of the Manager's Information Report. 

In accordance with NRS 332.115.1(b), the services to be performed are professional in nature and therefore exempt from competitive bidding requirements. This amendment has been reviewed and approved as to form by the District Attorney's Office. Company currently holds a valid Clark County Business License.
