SUBJECT:

Title

Approval to authorize the City Manager to enter into a five-year software maintenance contract with Presidio Networked Solutions Group in the amount of $86,400 ($17,280 annually) for the City’s phone system utilizing a Texas Department of Information Resources contract

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

In the FY 2021 Adopted Budget, the City included funding for a one-year software maintenance agreement for our phone system. However, Cisco has changed the available options they offer for these agreements.  The new Enterprise Agreement is offered as a five-year agreement, with annual payments of $17,280.   This maintenance agreement will entitle the City to keep the Unity System updated to the latest software releases, in addition to direct technical support with Cisco.

This contract is offered through a Texas DIR contract, which meets the City’s competitive bidding requirements.

FISCAL IMPACT:

As mentioned above, funding was included in the FY 2021 Adopted budget to continue supporting a maintenance agreement for our telephone system. The annual expenditure for years 2-5 will be incorporated into future budgets.
