City of Georgetown, Texas
City Council Regular Meeting
September 10, 2019
Consideration and possible action to approve an appropriation of $56,000.00 to CHC Wellness, Inc. for annual software subscription fees for the CHC Wellbeing software 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.
CHC Wellbeing is utilized by the City of Georgetown to manage its wellness program. The software allows the City to develop, implement, and track wellness initiatives designed to improve the overall health of employees and reduce healthcare costs. Individual employees use the program to track progress toward healthy behaviors. The software is a web-based subscription where the annual fee provides access to the system and software support.
All items were budgeted during the FY 2020 budget process. Expenses in the amount of $56,000 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 a previously purchased product.
Chris Bryce, IT Director
