Body

DISCUSSION/BACKGROUND

At the request of the Recorder Clerk, this matter was continued from September 11, 2018 to September 25, 2018.

 

According to Procurement Policy C-17 the Board must approve initially, and on an annual basis, the use of any contract that does not have a stated contract term.

 

The Recorder-Clerk has utilized perpetual service agreement #129 (061-S0311) since 2002 for all electronic recording services, including auto indexing, auto redaction and CRiis system site software license and associated support services.  The Recorder-Clerk uses the system to record documents and also to perform functions necessary for the County Clerk duties.

 

On June 22, 2008, Board of Supervisors authorized the continued use of this contract with AtPac, Inc. for proprietary software applications and support.  In March 2017 AtPac, Inc. was acquired by SouthTech Systems, thereby requiring approval of Amendment IV to contract #129 (061-S0311) for the assignment of this contract to SouthTech Systems, with no change to contract term, pricing, scope of work, technical support and other services (Legistar 08-0929, 6/6/17). 

 

On March 3, 2018, the Board authorized the Recorder-Clerk to negotiate a three year contract 3155 with SouthTech Systems for a replacement/upgrade of the CRiis Document Recording and Clerk Management System, including file conversion, file recovery, ongoing implementation and updates in order to ensure consistent and uninterrupted work flow of the Recorder-Clerk functions (Legistar 18-0246, 3/6/18). 

 

SouthTech will invoice the County in FY 2018-19 for AutoDex Licensing, Day forward Redaction OCR counts and electronic recording, electronic lien and CRiss software and maintenance on a prorata basis on agreement #129 (061-S0311).  Invoice totals for FY 2018-19 are currently estimated to be between $19,600 and $26,650 depending upon timing of transition to the new Recording and Clerk Management System.

 

ALTERNATIVES

Disapproval of this item will prevent the Recorder-Clerk from continuing with the many functions of the office, which are currently provided by this software license and associated maintenance agreement.
