This ordinance authorizes the Directors of the Departments of Technology and Public Utilities to continue an agreement with Hansen Banner LLC for annual software maintenance and support for CUBS. The original contract (CT-15918) was established in 1994, and most recently continued under the authority of ordinance 1959-2016, passed September 19, 2016, establishing PO033101. This contract agreement will provide support for the coverage term period from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018, at a cost of $334,429.34. The CUBS system supports billing and collections for DPU. This contract will allow DoT and DPU to continue utilizing services provided by Hansen for annual maintenance and support for CUBS. In addition to this ordinance for maintenance and support continuation, ordinance 1949-2017 was most recently submitted to request that the contract be modified to cover professional services provided by Hansen for the first phase of the CUBS upgrade project to version 5.0.

In 2015 and 2016, $323,005.00 and $326,654.96, were legislated respectively for maintenance, support, and upgrades.
