Title

Resolution to Approve the Attached Quote with CDW Government, LLC for Additional Microsoft Licenses and Related Service, and Appropriate Associated Funds ($188,529.16) (8 Votes Required)

Memorandum

The attached resolution seeks approval of City Council in the amount of $188,529.16, on behalf of the Information Technology Services Unit.  This purchase is needed to procure additional licenses for Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server.  These additional licenses are needed due to hardware procurement for the new permitting and land management application currently being implemented (Energov).  We are also expanding our SQL Server licensing because many initiatives have caused a proliferation of both databases and servers.  The additional licensing allow us to isolate applications from each other and minimize downtimes due to maintenance.

 

CDW Government, LLC complies with the City’s non-discrimination and living wage ordinances.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact:  The Information Technology Service Unit recommends approval of this purchase.
