Staff Summary: A revitalized website is one aspect of Carson City's Strategic Goals focusing on Efficient Government. Carson City's current website (http://www.carson.org) is stagnant, outdated and in dire need for a redesign with a more responsive design for mobile devices. Vision Internet has been our web design and content management provider with excellent services for approximately ten years. Vision Internet has provided a quote for updating the existing site and migrating the current data for a total of $39,725. This includes the basic items necessary for the website redesign for $24,500. IT is recommending we purchase optional components and services for an additional $8625. In addition, the quote includes the annual maintenance cost of $6600 for the first year, which will be an ongoing annual expenditure that will need to be added IT Software Maintenance budget line item.

The parties have concluded that the Nevada Department of Administration has sufficient resources available to it and its EITS to provide a service to CCIT. The interlocal contract would become effective on July 1, 2015 and end on June 30, 2017 and would not exceed $26,863.32. The CCIT and EITS agree that the SilverNet cost is based on the State's Legislative approved budget. The cost to the City for FY 2016 is $1,129.07 and FY 2017 is $1,109.54 per month. This cost is based on bandwidth utilization averaged over an entire fiscal year and does not change from month to month. Carson City will conform to State of Nevada's network and security standards while connected in accordance with the State's Security Policy. EITS will install, maintain, repair and upgrade network and transport equipment owned and operated by EITS as required in maintaining operational integrity of connection for 24x7 operational availability.
