The City of East Point is seeking a qualified vendor to cumulatively implement and install a SCADA System for the City’s Water and Sewer and Electric Departments.  The City requires a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System that will ensure the City’s ability to monitor substation equipment and issue controls in real time, and to monitor water plant conditions and set plant operating parameters in real time.  Any SCADA System recommended must be able to comply with the City’s expectations.

The City of East Point’s Power Department (Electric Department) currently has installed and uses iFix SCADA provided by General Electric Corporation with Allen Bradley PLC’s for water, and QEI SCADA and RTU’s for the Electric Department.  We have been using these products for over fifteen (15) years with some satisfaction.

The City of Marietta, Georgia, previously installed a SCADA system that was provided by the current known source, Advanced Control System (ACS).  The initial install by the City of Marietta was performed more than twenty (20) years ago, and as such may, or may not, be applicable to the City’s application, but is currently under review.

Our current application is a proprietary software and ACS is the sole owner, developer, publisher, and provider of it.

Vendors may be required to provide a demonstration of some or all the features in the attached.  Respondents should provide pricing information including, but not limited to, the cost of licensing, user training as well as the cost of installation, configuration, setting up of the interface and post production support etc. as per the attached requirements.

Specifics regarding the City’s requirements and expectations are detailed in the attached formal solicitation package.  Sealed bids shall be received on behalf of the City until 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 in the City’s Contracts and Procurement Office, Suite
400, 1526 East Forrest Avenue, East Point, Georgia 30344.
