City-county board awards $65M in tech contracts

Two companies have snagged contracts worth nearly $65 million over five years to provide information technology services for Indianapolis and Marion County government.

The contracts approved Tuesday morning by the nine-member Marion County Information Technology Board will cover technology infrastructure, applications and the indy.gov Internet portals for more than 50 departments and agencies in the city-county government, according to county officials.

Atos North America, a division of French firm Atos SE, will receive $30.6 million in a five-year contract to maintain and support computer hardware and digital storage needs.

Indianapolis-based Daniels Associates Inc. will receive $34.3 million over five years to coordinate software and application development, including enhancements to such programs as jail management, code-enforcement permitting and payroll systems. Daniels also will manage the indy.gov portals, and development and support for geographic information systems.

Both contracts for the City of Indianapolis/Marion County Information Services Agency cover the period between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2018. The ISA supports nearly 8,000 computers, 1,600 printers and about 400 additional devices such as cameras, scanners and tablets.

The contract approvals cap a seven-month process to hire vendors for infrastructure and application services, according to city officials.

Nine firms submitted viable proposals—seven focused solely on infrastructure services, and two on application services. No vendor submitted a proposal to cover both aspects.

Four separate vendors currently manage the functions that will be assumed by Atos and Daniels. The new contracts are expected to save about 4.8 percent annually.

  1. I always giggle when I read comments from people complaining that a market is "too saturated" with one thing or another. What does that even mean? If someone is able to open and sustain a new business, whether you think there is room enough for them or not, more power to them. Personally, I love visiting as many of the new local breweries as possible. You do realize that most of these establishments include a dining component and therefore are pretty similar to restaurants, right? When was the last time I heard someone say "You know, I think we have too many locally owned restaurants"? Um, never...

  2. It's good to hear that the festival is continuing to move forward beyond some of the narrow views that seemed to characterize the festival and that I and others had to deal with during our time there.

  3. Corner Bakery announced in March that it had signed agreements to open its first restaurants in Indianapolis by the end of the year. I have not heard anything since but will do some checking.

  4. "The project still is awaiting approval of a waiver filed with the Federal Aviation Administration that would authorize the use of the land for revenue-producing and non-aeronautical purposes." I wonder if the airport will still try to keep from paying taxes on these land tracts, even though they are designated as "non aeronatical?"

  5. How is this frivolous? All they are asking for is medical screenings to test the effects of their exposure. Sounds like the most reasonable lawsuit I've read about in a while. "may not have commited it" which is probably why they're suing to find out the truth. Otherwise they could just ask Walmart, were you negligent? No? OK, thanks for being honest.
