COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. Brian A. Perkovich, Executive Director

 

Title

Issue purchase order to Innovyze Inc., to Furnish and Deliver InfoWorks Annual License Renewal, in an amount not to exceed $12,000.00, Account 101-27000-612820, Requisition 1514023

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to issue a purchase order to Innovyze Inc. to furnish and deliver InfoWorks annual license renewal.  The coverage period for InfoWorks annual maintenance and support under this purchase order is from February 15, 2019 through February 14, 2020.

 

The Engineering Department uses two sets of models, the City of Chicago’s sewer system model and hydraulic models of the Mainstream, Des Plaines and Calumet Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP) Systems, to better plan for future improvements.  Both sets of models were developed using InfoWorks.  These models are only compatible with InfoWorks.  This renewal is required in order to continue the use of these models.

 

Innovyze Inc., the manufacturer and sole source of supply, has submitted prices for the annual license renewal required.  Inasmuch as Innovyze Inc. is the only source of supply for InfoWorks licenses, said purchase order may be issued without competitive bidding pursuant to Section 11.4 of the Purchasing Act.

 

Innovyze Inc. is registered and in good standing with the State of Illinois.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement is not applicable to this contract because it is primarily a furnish and deliver contract.

 

In view of the foregoing, it is requested that the Director of Procurement and Materials Management be authorized to issue said purchase order to Innovyze Inc.in an amount not to exceed $12,000.00.

 

Funds are available in Account 101-27000-612820.

 

Requested, John Sudduth, Director of Information Technology, JS:SK:BVS:vn

Recommended, Darlene A. LoCascio, Director of Procurement and Materials Management

Respectfully Submitted, Barbara J. McGowan, Chairman Committee on Procurement

Disposition of this agenda item will be documented in the official Regular Board Meeting Minutes of the Board of Commissioners for February 7, 2019
