City Council Regular Meeting

Consideration and possible action to approve an appropriation of $150,000.00 to Presidio Networked Solutions, LLC. for annual maintenance expenses on Cisco branded servers, network equipment, and the City phone system -- Chris Bryce, IT Director
This item is one of several annual technology maintenance appropriations that are submitted for advanced approval at the beginning of each fiscal year so that invoices may be paid in a timely manner when they are received.
Presidio provides 24/7 support of the City’s core Cisco networking infrastructure, virtual server hosts, and voice-over-IP phone system. This also covers annual maintenance on the City’s Cistera call recording software used throughout the City for voicemail and recording phone calls.
All items were budgeted during the FY 2020 budget process. Expenses in the amount of $150,000 will be recorded in account 570-5-0641-51-341 (IT Contracts – Annual Contracts). The purchase qualifies as a proprietary exception because it is a renewal of maintenance on previously purchased products. Presidio also adheres to Texas Department of Information Resources contract pricing.
