Staff recommends execution of the software End User License Agreement (EULA) to Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) for annual license fees, maintenance and support of the City Geographical Information System (GIS) software for a three-year total amount of $75,519.95. The annual cost for each of the three years is $25,506.65.
The City uses computer software from ESRI to provide the foundation of our Geographical Information System (GIS) in the form of a database and administrative tools. This computer software provides the infrastructure necessary for all address and mapping related software applications used by various departments and divisions within the City.
Each of the City Utilities relies on GIS to provide mapping capabilities of the utility infrastructure. This software allows us to see where things are in the field. There has been a recent and an ongoing effort by GIS and the utilities to locate all facilities and record the location of the utilities electronically in GIS. The system then translates these data points to on-line maps.
The software also allows staff to create ‘models’ and run ‘what-if’ scenarios. For example, on the electronic map, staff can tell the system there is a gas line break. Staff will then turn off a gas valve and the map will visually show what other gas lines, valves, and services are affected by turning off that one valve.
This purchase is for the annual license fees, support, and maintenance provided by ESRI to the City. This is an annual expense and will continue as long as the City continues to use this software. There are no future plans to change the software used or discontinue the use of this software as this is the industry standard.
Should the City desire to terminate the agreement, it may do so without penalty at any time during the three-year term.
1. Approve execution of the End User License Agreement with ESRI, Inc. for $75,519.95; or

Funds have been budgeted and are available for this year’s expense of $25,506.65. Funds for years two & three of the agreement will be budgeted in the appropriate future fiscal year.
