This ordinance authorizes the Directors of the Departments of Technology and Public Utilities to modify an agreement with Hansen Banner, LLC for professional services to upgrade the Columbus Utility Billing System (CUBS), in the amount of $472,000.00. The coverage term period is one (1) year from the date of a purchase order certified/confirmed by the City Auditor's Office. In 1994, the Department of Public Utilities initiated a contract (CT-15918) for software and services related to the Water and Sewer Information Management System (WASIMS) with SCT Utility Systems. Section 12 of the original contract provided for modifications and changes in scope of service. SCT Utility Systems later changed their name to Indus Utility Systems, then to its current name Hansen Banner, LLC.

The agreement was most recently authorized by authority of ordinance 1366-2018, passed June 11, 2018. This modification will provide for additional professional services to upgrade the CUBS system to version 5.1 of the Hansen Banner, LLC software. In addition, this legislation will include a funding transfer (Transfer $150,000 from 62030 and $125,000 from 66530 to 63050). This modification will cover the second phase of the CUBS upgrade project.
