This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a planned renewal with Irth Solutions, LLC to supply, integrate, and support a Ticket Management System (TMS) for the purpose of receiving and processing utility locate requests as generated by the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS). The City of Columbus, Department of Public Utilities (DPU) receives approximately 142,500 buried asset utility line locate requests from OUPS annually. Upon receipt of these requests, the DPU marks underground electric, water, and sewer facilities in the proposed excavation area. The TMS provides both a web-based hosted ticket management solution as well as a locally installed mobile solution which can operate in a disconnected environment.

The City of Columbus, Department of Public Utilities, solicited a Request for Proposals for a Ticket Management System (SA005697). Eighty-two (82) vendors (1-MBR, 1-M1A and 80 MAJ) were solicited and two (2) proposals (2 MAJ) were received and opened on January 9, 2015. The selection of Irth Solutions, LLC was in accordance with relevant provisions of Columbus City Code Chapter 329 pertaining to awarding professional service contracts through requests for proposals.

There is a need to enter into a renewal of the Ticket Management System to insure the continued safety of citizens and property. The original contract DL022511 was established for a period of one year with five additional one-year renewal options. Renewal of this Agreement is subject to the authorization of Columbus City Council and the certification by the City Auditor of the availability of funds for such purposes. This service agreement will not automatically renew. This proposed modification (No. 5) is to extend the contract to February 28, 2021 and will ADD $31,557.00. All other terms and conditions of the original agreement remain in full force and effect.
