SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a Data Center Circuit Renewal Agreement (C-2018-0168); 
FISCAL IMPACT:
$106,526.88 annually.
BACKGROUND:
The Township maintains two data centers for disaster recovery and fault tolerance. The Township entered into an agreement in 2014 with TW Telecom to provide data center circuits for a 36- month term. TW Telecom was then purchased by Level 3, and now most recently by CenturyLink.

The current agreement with CenturyLink provides a data circuit between both data centers and a 150 MB/s Internet circuit totaling $9,863.60/month. 

Staff received proposals from CenturyLink and Cogent.

CenturyLink (Attachment A) submitted the lowest priced proposal for a 6GB/s data circuit totaling $8,877.24/month for 36 months.
Cogent (Attachment B) submitted a proposal for a 6GB/s data circuit totaling $12,050/month for 36 months.

CenturyLink's proposal reflects a net annual savings of $11,836.32. from the current agreement.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the President/General Manager to execute the agreement with CenturyLink, subject to approval in final form by the Township Attorney.
