Item No: 4.C.1.
Meeting Date: March 11, 2013
From: Jim Lemberg – Manager, Communications Utility
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with Nick Lenoci Enterprises, Inc. for consulting services.
Staff recommends approval of a resolution authorizing a Professional Services Agreement with Nick Lenoci Enterprises, Inc. under which consulting services will be provided to the City.
The City’s Communications Utility currently purchases Internet bandwidth from Level 3 Communications. This agreement will retain a consultant to review the City’s existing orders for Internet bandwidth and potentially assist the City in obtaining better pricing. The consultant has extensive senior level experience and contacts within the telecommunications market and will be able to provide expert advice to the City regarding its current Internet bandwidth orders with Level 3 Communications and any opportunity to obtain more favorable pricing from that vendor.
1. Approve the resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The consultant’s fees under the agreement would be three months of any savings achieved on the City’s costs to purchase Internet bandwidth. The consultant would only be paid if new pricing is obtained from Level 3 Communications (or some other provider of Internet bandwidth).
