Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance approves a sole source contract between the Metropolitan Government and Net Tango, Inc. for the purpose of website maintenance and developmental support for Nashville.gov, the Nashville Public Library website, and other departmental websites. The contract term is five years beginning upon the date the contract is approved by all parties and filed in the Metropolitan Clerk’s Office. As amended, the Metropolitan Government would have the option to extend the contract by an additional five years if desired. The estimated contract value is $10,000,000.

 

Section 4.12.060 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws authorizes the Metropolitan Purchasing Agent to enter into sole source contracts when the Purchasing Agent determines in writing according to standards adopted by the Procurement Standards Board that there is only one source for the supply or services required. Sole source contracts with a total contract value over $250,000 must be approved by the Council. Sole source contracts are generally approved by resolution, however, contracts with a term exceeding sixty months must be approved by ordinance.

 

According to the sole source justification form, Net Tango possesses in-depth critical experience and the propriety knowledge of the Metropolitan Government’s websites. Net Tango developed the previous and current versions of Nashville.gov and its related content management system (“CMS”), heavily customized the CMS, and works with the Metropolitan Government in maintaining its current websites. Net Tango was previously awarded two competitive Requests for Proposals (“RFPs”) for five-year contracts prior to this sole source request.

 

Fiscal Note: The estimated value of this sole source contract no. 6528123 is $10,000,000 to be paid from Fund No. 51137, Business Unit No. 14521021 to Net Tango, Inc. This contract is for the re-design of the Metro’s website Nashville.gov, maintenance and development support.  Net Tango’s hourly rate for the following service categories is $155/hour for design, development, project and account management, and $310/hour for emergency support-after hours.
