Explanation

§                     These contracts provide maintenance services for the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system.

§                     The SCADA system is a computer control system which monitors and controls variables such as water flow and pressure during the water and wastewater treatment process.

§                     The companies selected best meet the City’s needs in terms of demonstrated competence and qualification of professional services in response to the RFP requirements.
