Meeting Date: 10/16/2014  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a renewal agreement with TW Telecom;
FISCAL IMPACT:
$2,708.80/Month for a 36 month term.
BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Fire Department (WFD) currently has a monthly, service agreement with TW Telecom to provide several MPLS data circuits to each fire station for voice/data communications.

WFD currently pays $4,143.81/month for a 1.5Mbps data line to each fire station. The renewal agreement will double the speed to 3 Mbps utilizing TW Telecom's Native LAN technology and reduce the monthly fee to $2,708.80/month for a 36 month term. This equates to a net savings of $51,660.40 over the 36 month term. The savings are a result of TW Telecom's increased area presence, thereby reducing operational costs while increasing service and  fault-tolerance.

The agreement is purchased via the Texas Department of Information Resources discounted government purchasing plan; meeting the Township's purchasing policy.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the President/General Manager to execute the agreement with TW Telecom.
