Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2018 Metro Transit capital budget by adding an additional $173,000 GO Borrowing to the Transit System Upgrades program for the cost of an unanticipated contract provision with Trapeze Software for the cables and technical assistance associated with the voice communication radio system. This system and the related costs for the cables and technical assistance are explicitly provided by Trapeze Software Group Inc.

The Metro Transit's adopted 2018 capital budget included $197,477 of GO Borrowing appropriation for the Transit System Upgrades program, which Metro intends to fully use for the budgeted purpose of replacing the transit system's support vehicles and equipment. If adopted, this resolution will add $173,000 of GO Borrowing to that program for the cost of cables and technical assistance.

Body
The City of Madison's analog infrastructure that currently supports the radio system Metro Transit uses for voice radio communication will be decommissioned in early 2019. Metro Transit has purchased and will be installing new digital voice and data radios during 2018. The radios were purchased through a competitive process. Subsequently, it was discovered that in order for the radios to work with Metro's current Trapeze TransitMaster equipment installed on Metro vehicles, special cables and technical assistance, both available only from Trapeze, are needed. It is vital that this transition to the new radio system be completed in 2018 so that Metro's system will continue to function as well as interface with city emergency services radio systems.
