Title
Authorize a three-year service contract for the acquisition, maintenance, and support of a cloud based digital learning platform for the Water Utilities Department - ANCILE Solutions, Inc., sole source - Not to exceed $135,330.37 - Financing: Dallas Water Utilities Fund (subject to annual appropriations)

Body
BACKGROUND

This action does not encumber funds; the purpose of a service contract is to establish firm pricing for services, for a specific item, which are ordered on an as needed basis.

This service contract will provide for the acquisition, maintenance, and support of a cloud based digital learning software for the Water Utilities Department. This software will allow for the creation of eLearning courses and simulations that can be deployed through a cloud-based environment.

The City will benefit from high quality training material and work instructions that are recorded from the source using human interactions and not created by artificial intelligence.

On November 10, 2015, the City Council authorized a living wage policy that requires contractors to pay their employees a "living wage" rate as established annually by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Living Wage Calculator for Dallas County by Resolution No. 15-2141. The current calculated living wage during the solicitation process of this contract is $17.82; the selected vendor meets this requirement.
