Body

 

SUMMARY: 

Public Utilities has standardized on Allen-Bradley factory programmable logic controllers (PLC) throughout the water reclamation facilities, water treatment facilities and lift stations. Standardization creates uniformity throughout the plants, reduces parts inventory, eliminates the need for training on multiple systems and helps to reduce downtime when repairs are needed. Rexel USA, Inc. is the only distributor authorized to sell Allen-Bradley products and related services in our geographical location.

 

As aging units break down or become obsolete, the City has been working on replacing, maintaining, and installing replacement parts on an as-needed basis. This single source contract will be used to purchase equipment, parts and supplies that support all the PLCs that operate and control the processes for the water reclamation facilities, water treatment facilities, lift stations, reclaim booster stations and raw water wells, as well as communications with our Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.

 

APPROPRIATION CODE AND AMOUNT:

Budgeted funds for FY21 are available in Public Utilities' cost centers, cost code 550400

Operating Supplies.

 

Funding for future fiscal years (FY22 through FY24) will be requested within contract calendar and spending limits.
