Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends that the Ccommission approve purchase requisition 36558 in the amount of $24,650 for the purchase of Telecordia Network Engineer GIS software from OneGIS.



The software is needed to enable the Communications Department use of GIS information for fiber optics.  The total cost of the software is $51,150.  The cost of purchase, installation, and configuration (phase one) is to be done in Fiscal Year 2005-06 at a cost of $24,650.  Completion (phase two) is to be done in Fiscal Year 2006-0707 at a cost of $26,500.  Software maintenance will cost $3,550 per year beginning with the second year.


This is a sole source purchase.  The competitive bid process was not required.  The City requires the use of software products compatible with the City’s ESRI GIS system.  OneGIS, located at 115 Perimeter Center Place NE, Suite 942, Atlanta, GA  30326, is the only reseller of Telecordia Network Engineer for governmental use.
