AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           February 22, 2010

 

From:                          Paul Kalv, Electric Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a Cyber Security Assessment and Cyber Security Plan

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends acceptance of the proposal from n-Dimension Solutions to perform a current state cyber security assessment to identify cyber security risks associated with the current operating environment and potential risks with planned deployments of new technologies as part of the Smart Grid Investment Grant Project.  Due to the nature and timing of the grant award process with the Department of Energy (DOE) the Commission is requested to waive the competitive solicitation process and to approve this agreement as a sole source agreement. 

 

Staff further recommends acceptance of the proposal from n-Dimension to develop a cyber security plan to safeguard operation of Leesburg’s operating environment and meet the Department of Energy requirements for the Smart Grid Investment Grant.

 

Analysis:

Development of the cyber security plan will build on the assessment, and work on the plan will proceed in parallel with the assessment.  Completion of the majority of the assessment will be needed to provide necessary input to the plan. 

 

The DOE grant award negotiations are anticipated to commence within the next several months and Leesburg’s cyber security plan will be due to DOE 30 days after the date of the grant award letter.

 

Funding for this project was included in Leesburg’s Smart Grid Investment Grant application.

 

Options:

1.  Adopt the Resolution accepting the proposal from n-Dimension Solutions as presented; or,

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Cost of the cyber security assessment proposal not to exceed $22,000.00.  Cost of the cyber security plan development not to exceed $18,000.00.  50% of these expenditures are eligible for reimbursement by DOE.  Subject to commission approval, funding for this project is available through an appropriation of Retained Earnings.  Once the Utility is refunded by the DOE Grant 50% of the proceeds will be refunded back into Retained Earnings.
