Title
Resolution to Approve a Purchase Order with Axon Enterprise, Inc. for Axon Taser and Body Worn Camera Upgrades and Related Five-Year Addendum ($915,177 Total)
Memorandum
The attached resolution requests approval to issue a purchase order to Axon Enterprise, Inc. for the purchase of upgrades to Axon Tasers and Body Cameras used by all police officers, and related five-year addendum.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: The year 1 costs associated with this addendum are budgeted in the FY21 Police Department budget and shall be budgeted for each contract year through FY25.

The City qualifies to participate in the Cooperative Sourcewell Contract #010720-AXN. Sourcewell bids on behalf of eligible agencies, including local governments. The Sourcewell contract provides large volume bid prices on a variety of technology under bid policies and procedures for product and vendor selection which comply with state bidding laws. All items and vendors are awarded through a sealed bid process by Sourcewell. Product selection criteria include: specifications, price, and product quality. Axon Enterprise, Inc. is a Sourcewell qualified vendor.

The bundled pricing offered in the quote is a better value than the Cooperative Sourcewell. Axon is the current vendor for Tasers, as well as Body Worn Cameras, since November 2019, and these tools are both currently integrated with Axon's Evidence.com cloud storage for record management.

Axon Enterprise, Inc. complies with the requirements of the City's non-discrimination and living wage ordinances.
