Consideration and possible action to approve an appropriation of $64,000.00 to Electsolve Technology Solutions and Services, Inc. for annual software maintenance on the City’s uCentra Meter Data Management 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.
Electsolve provides the City’s meter data management (MDM) software named uCentra. uCentra collects and manages electric and water meter readings provided by the City’s advanced metering infrastructure. Maintenance covers software updates, fixes, and support.
All items were budgeted during the FY 2020 budget process. Expenses in the amount of $64,000 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
