Staff recommends approval of the third amendment with Atlantic.Net, Inc. to extend the existing contract thru September 30, 2010.
The City originally contracted with Atlantic.Net, Inc. in December 2004 for a three-year period. Atlantic.Net, Inc. provides fractional DS-3 internet access to the Communications Division of the Information Technology Department. This service is re-sold to commercial accounts serviced by the City Communications Division.
This third amendment will extend the contract period until September 30, 2010. The original agreement provides for the City to renew in writing additional one (1) year periods at the City’s option. The City wishes to exercise that option with this third amendment.
Extension of this contract will allow for uninterrupted internet service. Retaining the existing company will minimize confusion and cost by transferring to a new company. The City has received excellent service and dependability from Atlantic.Net, Inc. and would like to continue its relationship with this vendor.
1. Authorize execution of the third amendment with Atlantic.Net, Inc.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funds for Information Technology internet services are budgeted on an annual basis. The proposed budget for this service during the 2010 fiscal year is $70,000.00. .
