Explanation

BACKGROUND:
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Technology (DoT) to modify an existing contract to increase funding and extend the term period through March 31, 2018 with Fusion Alliance LLC for technology staff augmentation services. Total modification funding cost of this service is $365,000.00 for staff augmentation services to be provided as described in the department’s proposal request and the vendor’s statement of work (SOW). The original contract was authorized under ordinance 2508-2016 passed by City Council October 3, 2016 establishing PO030382.

The Department of Technology requires staff augmentation resources to assist with the design of the city’s open-data architecture that will be used by the city and the Smart Columbus program, and will coordinate the design efforts with the city’s staff, business, grant and information technology partners including, among others: Smart Columbus Program Office, U.S. Department of Transportation, the Columbus Partnership, Amazon Web Services, IBM, and the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission.

The staff augmentation resources will continue to work with DoT to collaboratively lead the design, development, and implementation of open-data architectures for current city initiatives, including re-design of the city’s current data architecture around an open-government platform and the Information Data Exchange (IDE) component of the Smart Columbus grant.

This ordinance will authorize a modification to provide additional funds totaling $365,000.00 for staff augmentation resources to continue working with the Department of Technology on the city’s open-data architecture project and extend the contract term period through March 31, 2018 so that the project work started by the Fusion Alliance, LLC can be completed.
