Financial Impact

Funds are available from Hernando County Tourist Development FY17/18 budget item 02811-5304801 – Promotional Activities in the amount of $49,015.00.


On January 24, 2017, the Board directed Hernando County Purchasing and Contracts to develop a Term Contract for Billboard Advertising.


Hernando County Tourist Development currently has five (5) billboards contracted with Clear Channel Outdoor, Inc., for an annual amount of $49,015.00.  The locations of the billboards range from 1-75 (2), Ocala (1), Citrus County (1) and Brooksville (1).  Since the locations of these billboards are proprietary to Clear Channel Outdoor, Inc., a Term Sole Source Contract was solicited.


New billboard locations rarely become available.  Should future locations become available, and Hernando County Tourist Development has funding available, the department would like the ability to include them under the Term Sole Source Contract.  The maximum annual amount contracted would not exceed $75,000.00 without prior BOCC approval.


Hernando County Ordinance 93-16, Section 2-101, (3), excludes advertisements from the competitive bidding process.


The Chief Procurement Officer has reviewed this requirement for conformance to Procurement Ordinance and Purchasing Policies and Procedures.
