Explanation

1.0 BACKGROUND: This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify an existing professional services agreement with Arcadis U.S., Inc. for the General Services for Security and Emergency Preparedness Project, in an amount up to $636,554.00

The Department of Public Utilities (DPU) contracted with Arcadis U.S., Inc. to provide full-service assistance for general security and emergency preparedness related services. The original agreement (PO015118, Ord. #1001-2016) provided services for Phase 1: Assessment Services and Phase 2: Emergency Response Plan (ERP) services.

Under Phase 1: Assessment Services, Arcadis began conducting an all-hazard vulnerability and risk assessment of DPU’s physical and cyber assets for each division.

Under Phase 2: Emergency Response Plan (ERP), Arcadis began developing and unifying all plans under a formalized and consistent Emergency Preparedness Program.

Modification No. 1 (PO049107, Ord. #3152-2016) continued Phase 1 and Phase 2 services into 2017.

This modification will complete Phase 1 and Phase 2 services, add Phase 2A services and provide funding for Phase 3 and Phase 4 services.

Under Phase 2A, the Consultant will complete construction plans, bid documents, and provide engineering services during construction for access control and security improvements to the Public Utilities Complex.

Under Phase 3, the Consultant will develop and deliver course curriculum to provide DPU staff with information on ERP updates, ICS and NIMs refreshers to increase their knowledge, skills, and abilities on the topics.

Under Phase 4, the Consultant will develop and execute the delivery of exercises and all exercise documentation, as needed/requested for each Division following Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) requirements.

This is the third year of a five-year agreement. A future renewal will include Phase 5: Mitigation Services.
