Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of maintenance agreements with CG Automation for hardware and software support
Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of annual maintenance agreements with CG Automation to provide hardware and software support for a total of $26,089.00.
The Electric Utility uses a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system to monitor the electric utility distribution system. The system reports back conditions within the system and when applicable trouble faults as they may occur. The utility has been using the same system for the past 18 years. The original vendor was QEI. QEI has since been purchased by CG Automation.
There are five hardware and software support contracts for different components of the SCADA system. These agreements provide the required support to all aspects of the Electric Utility SCADA system. The agreements and their associated costs are listed here:
The total cost of $26,089.00 is a $504.00 increase over last year’s total annual cost of $25,585.00.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing execution of the support agreements
with CG Automation; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The total cost of $26,089.00 is an annual on-going expense and is budgeted in the current year at $26,500.00.
