Meeting Date:           June 8, 2009

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a second amendment to an existing agreement with Atlantic.Net, Inc. for dedicated circuit services

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the second amendment with Atlantic.Net, Inc. to extend the existing contract through September 30, 2009.

 

Analysis:

Atlantic.net, Inc. provides fractional high speed Internet access to the Communications Division.  This access is resold by Communications to our commercial Internet/broadband customers.  The City originally contracted with Atlantic.net, Inc. in December 2004 for a three-year period.  The original agreement provides the City the option to extend the agreement for an undefined number of additional one year periods.  This second amendment will extend the contract through September 30, 2009 coinciding with the end of our fiscal year. 

 

Extension of this contract will allow for uninterrupted internet service to our customers.  The City has received excellent service, dependability, and competitive pricing from Atlantic.Net, Inc. and would like to continue its relationship with this vendor.

 

Options:

1.  Authorize execution of the second  amendment with Atlantic.Net, Inc.

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funds for internet services are budgeted on an annual basis in the Communication Division of Information Technology. The proposed budget for the remainder of the Fiscal Year 2009 is $20,020.45.
