Title

Joint resolution authorizing an agreement with Donohue and Associates, Inc., Sheboygan, Wisconsin, in the amount of $69,680 for preliminary engineering design services for the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system.

 

Staff Summary

                     Lake County Public Works operates a robust Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. The system allows for wireless communication and data collection among the various Lake County Public Works water and wastewater systems. This results in less drive team and fewer miles driven, benefiting the environment. The data repository is used to make data driven decisions on system functionality.

                     This phase of SCADA will connect the Southeast sewer system to the network and update the SCADA network of the former Lakes Region Sanitary District assets. More than 45 lift stations will be improved.

                     This is the initial agreement for preliminary engineering services, and the agreement will be amended to include final engineering and system integration services in the future, which is consistent with the County’s experience in multi-phase professional contracts.

                     The Lake County Purchasing Division received and evaluated Statements of Interests from three professional firms. In accordance with the Local Government Professional Services Selection Act, the recommended firm is Donohue and Associates, Inc.

                     The initial contract with Donohue and Associates, Inc. will include preliminary engineering design services and inventory services based on a not-to-exceed value in the amount of $69,680.
