Approve the Agreement for Technical Services for NatSoft Corporation to Provide Infor Lawson S3 Systems Support (Information Technology)
On April 26, 2016, the Board approved an agreement to provide Infor Lawson S3 system administration services necessary to maintain the day-to-day operations of the district's enterprise resource planning software.  The agreement ends on May 4, 2017. This agenda item lengthens the services for an additional 12 months. This new agreement will ensure the continued stability of the Lawson S3 system and enable proper knowledge transfer when a new staff member is hired.
• Continuously improve processes and systems • Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship
Funds in the amount of $151,800.00 will be available in the Information Technology budget. As of Tuesday, April 13, 2017, the remaining balance less encumbrances for this line item equaled $25,200.00.  Funds needed for the remainder of the contract will be allocated in the 2017/2018 fiscal year budget.  If funds are needed that will exceed the amount remaining prior to June 30, 2017, the department will transfer funds from other accounts that are tracking under budget or delay purchases until the next fiscal year.
The consultant is under the direct supervision of the Department Manager, Infrastructure and Shared Services within Information Technology Department, who assigns and reviews tasks and priorities on a weekly basis.
