Title
Authorizing the Mayor to enter into a 3-year agreement with Aquatic Informatics for Linko web-based software in a total amount not to exceed $35,326 for the purpose of licensing updated software necessary for tracking and monitoring necessary permit information for industrial pretreatment facilities; authorizing the waiver of TMC Ch. 187 competitive bidding requirements; authorizing the expenditure of funds over the term of the agreement from the Water Operating Fund and Sewer Operating Fund; and declaring an emergency.

Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
Web-based Linko is existing software being moved to an online platform that will provide faster, upgraded performance of the current Linko software, which has performance issues due to its location on a city server. After extensive investigation by the ICT Department and Division of Environmental Services, use of a web-based server has been determined to provide the best possible functionality. The Division of Environmental Services uses this intricate database for all permit required recordkeeping on industrial pretreatment facilities. Since some fees have already been paid on the current basic Linko service, the 2021 fee for web-based Linko will be $5,650. Starting in 2022 the web-based service will be $14,727 and the 2023 fee will be $14,949. These amounts include all necessary software needs as well as support and maintenance for all users. The upgrade will also relieve some of this complicated software's burden on the ICT Department.

The fiscal impact of this ordinance is as follows:
- Total amount of funds requested for the 3-year contract: $35,326.
