From:                          Mike Thornton

 

Subject:                      Resolutions authorizing the execution of agreements with QEI, Inc. for various service agreements related to the electric utility SCADA system.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the five resolutions to QEI, Inc. for service agreements totaling $25,097.00 related to the Leesburg Electric Departments Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system.

 

Analysis:

The Electric Department uses a computerized SCADA system to monitor and control the electric utility system.

 

The agreements authorize service to be provided by QEI, Inc., the SCADA provider, for the various components as listed here.

 

 

The SCADA system is comprised of many different components that warrant separate service agreements.  Components such as the Master Station control center to aggregate all the data collected and present the data to the operators.  Remote Terminal Units are placed in the field and transmit or communicate system data back to the Master Station.  Control panels within the RTU have software (CONFIGWIZ) that must be configured in order to properly collect and communicate with the Master Station.  The SCADA master station and operator control centers (computers) are installed on Hewlett Packard computers which carry a separate hardware service agreement.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolutions to QEI, Inc. totaling $25,097.00; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 


Fiscal Impact

The current Electric budget includes $28,060.00 for these agreements.
