(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 182213, 184427, 185065, 187373 and 189878, effective March 4, 2020.)  In addition to the definitions in PCC 5.33, the following definitions apply:

A.  For the purposes of this Chapter, “professional, technical and expert” refers to any individual or group, excluding regular City employees, who, for a fee, provides services or gives professional advice regarding matters in the field of their special knowledge or training, such as, but not limited to: architects, engineers, lawyers, accountants, doctors, owner’s representatives, and counselors in investments or insurance. The Chief Procurement Officer has authority to classify services not specifically addressed in this provision as professional services if those services require professional advice in a field of special knowledge or training similar to those listed above.

B.  "Estimated Fee" means City's reasonably projected fee to be paid for a Consultant's services under the anticipated Contract, excluding all anticipated reimbursable or other non-professional fee expenses. The Estimated Fee is used solely to determine the applicable Contract solicitation method and is distinct from the total amount payable under the Contract.
