KANSAS CITY COMMITTEE RECORD
 
Upon Roll Call the following members were present:
Present:4 - SCOTT WAGNER, JOLIE JUSTUS, LEE BARNES JR., KEVIN MCMANUS
 

170273
Authorizing the Director of the General Services to execute a one-year $2,160,000.00 contract amendment, with six one-year renewal options, with FAST Enterprises, Inc., for Gen-Tax Software License and Maintenance, Application, Hardware Maintenance and Disaster Recovery Center Support Services for the City’s revenue system; authorizing renewals and amendments; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.


FINANCE AND GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Mari Ruck, Finance Department, and Keely Golden, General Services, provided the staff report for this ordinance (Report is on file in the City Clerk's Office). The hardware solution currently being utilized in the Revenue System is outdated and must be replaced, it has met its' end of life service. It is too costly to replace and is not cost effective to move forward with a hardware replacement solution. Looking into alternate solutions, IT, Finance and Fast Enterprises worked together for over a year and developed a roadmap to a more efficient plan. This amendment adds 6, 1 year renewals to the contract. The Revenue System will move to a hosted Cloud Solution by the supplier which will reduce costs and remove the costly hardware replacement. The savings will be long term, sustainable savings that will be immediate and tangible. IT will work with Finance to ensure that all technology components are verified and both departments are engaged to ensure all Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requirements are being met. This solution should meet all long term objectives.
