The estimated amount is intended as guidance rather than a cap on spending under the agreement, so that actual need combined with the amount budgeted will determine the amount spent under this agreement.

These services include court reporters and transcribers to take verbatim transcriptions of legal proceedings. Such proceedings could be but are not limited to depositions, appellate hearings, meetings, witness statements, and any other proceedings where accurate written accounts are necessary. Additional services include the following:

* Administering oaths
* Providing electronic versions of transcripts
* Videotaping of proceedings

* City Attorney's Office (2)
* Civil Service (2)
* Office of Economic Development Business Workforce and Inclusion Division (1)*
* Office of Procurement Services (1)*

*The Office of Procurement Services...
