Explanation
This ordinance authorizes a modification and extension of an existing contract with Technology Sight Planners (TechSite) in the amount of $78,955.00. On March 2, 2018, the Department of Technology (DoT), through the utilization of a Request for Statement of Qualification process, received one (1) response (RFSQ007973/PR199751) for site assessment and other related services to the City's Data Centers.
