Topic: 

A Resolution to Approve a Contract Amendment to the Automated Technology Solutions Contract

Topic Description:

The contractor is at work in the Data Center at the Alice Jane Childs building to provide enhanced reliability and security for the County and Schools computer systems. The contract was awarded to Automated Technology Solutions on April 14, 2006 in the amount of $423,420. As the work is nearing completion change orders totaling $137,270 are recommended.  The change orders include an increase in the size of the generator and associated electrical changes to support both the data center and public safety radio system. It also provides additional and improved space for the IT department.  A second change order pertains to the relocation of the microwave connection for the public safety radio system from the Sheriff’s office to the Alice Jane Childs building.  Improvements are required in the penthouse that will house the radio equipment. These contract changes require Board action since they exceed 25% of the original contract amount.  The Facilities Planning and Implementation Committee has reviewed and approved these changes.
