Explanation

BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Technology to renew a contract with SHI International Corp. for annual software maintenance and support services. The original agreement was authorized under the authority of ordinance 2104-2016, passed on September 19, 2016 through purchase order PO027785 and included two (2) renewal options. This ordinance authorizes one (1) of the two (2) allowable options to renew. The City uses the NetMotion mobility solution software to enable mobile workers, including police officers and public utility field crews, to utilize computer applications over cellular communication networks. Without the NetMotion solution, these applications will not function when accessed over a cellular network, significantly diminishing the effectiveness and efficiency of City police officers and other mobile workers. The coverage term period of this contract is September 30, 2017 through September 29, 2018.

FISCAL IMPACT:
In 2016, the Department of Technology legislated $43,093.40 for the NetMotion software mobility solution. The cost for this year’s annual renewal of the NetMotion mobility solution is $39,098.24. Funds are budgeted and available within the Department of Technology’s internal services fund direct charge budget. This enables pro-rating the cost among the various funds of the three beneficiary departments (i.e., Public Safety, Public Utilities, and Public Service). Including this renewal, the aggregate contract total amount is $82,191.64.

EMERGENCY:
Emergency action is requested to expedite authorization of this contract in order to facilitate and maintain uninterrupted services from the supplier.
