An editorial in the San Antonio Express-News, on Nov. 25, stated Jasmine Engineering was receiving 6 percent-plus from the Harlandale Independent School District for bond project management. This is incorrect. Our fee for previous assignments, and based on providing three separate services, were — programming: 2 percent; project management: 2 percent; and commissioning: 2 percent.
We were recently hired by the district to again perform these three services for the 2015 Bond Program, under the title of Total Building Commissioning Authority. To bring maximum savings to the district and its taxpayers, we agreed to reduce our fees on Bond 2015 even further. The fees are: programming: 2 percent; project management: 2 percent; and commissioning: 1 percent.
