It is requested that Council authorize payment to Motorola Solutions, Inc., in an amount not to exceed $158,994.36, to execute the FY15 annual transmission system service contract for the City’s 800 MHz radio communication system.
Per the award of RFP No. 149-91, (Resolution No. 91-92) the City established an Annual Transmission System Maintenance contract with Motorola Solutions, Inc., (formerly Motorola Communications and Electronics, Inc), having renewed said contract each year. The Annual Transmission System Service Agreement is adjusted each year for any deletions or additions of transmission system components.
The Annual Transmission System Service agreement covers the highly technical components of the Radio System. The agreement runs from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015, and the annual payment is made, in total, at the beginning of each agreement period.
This is an annual expense for the operation of the 800 MHz Radio Communication System. Harris County maintains the Roosevelt State Park transmission site that is included in this annual service agreement for which they will reimburse the City in the estimated amount of $24,033.28.
Motorola Solutions, Inc., is the manufacturer of the equipment, and therefore, considered an only known source for this specific maintenance.
