On September 8, 2015, the City Council approved Agreement No. A2015-191 with NexLevel to provide support in the selection of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in the amount of $55,000. Amendment No. 1 was approved by the City Manager on June 2, 2016, in the amount of $4,000 to amend the scope of work to include ERP contract negotiation services. Amendment No. 2 was approved by the City Council on December 13, 2016, in the amount of $341,000 for project management of the implementation of the ERP system. The ERP project management services began in January 2017.
On November 1, 2017, NexLevel was acquired by SDI; therefore, City Council authorized a new agreement with SDI for $220,000 which was the anticipated remaining amount of the original NexLevel contract. The consultant has proven to be a valuable resource and staff has needed his support more than originally anticipated. Expenses through June 30, 2019, on the SDI agreement are anticipated to amount to $220,000. The proposed amendment with SDI is for an additional $200,000 to fund costs through February 2021, which is the end of the contract term including the one-year renewal option.
