ADMINISTRATIVE SUMMARY:

Scope:  Autodesk Constructware, the application currently used as the project management information system by the District’s Bond Program since 2005, is reaching end-of-support. Autodesk is no longer developing the product and will not extend multi-year license extensions beyond our current license expiration in December, 2020.

Bond Project Office staff conducted a needs analysis and product search and evaluation to find the best system to replace Constructware. The Kahua platform is recommended as the best option for the District (see attached memo to the Eric Dill).

The proposed Agreement with Kahua, Inc. includes licensing and professional services to assess our program, configure the implementation and deploy to users.

The agreement is for one year with 30 users. After integration, testing and deployment an agreement for more users in following years will be considered.

The current and proposed systems do not require any support by the District’s ITG Department.

Cost:

Annual Subscription (one year)   $35,625.00

Professional Services (one time) $60,000.00

The Kahua platform will eliminate the need for another program budgeting and cost management application saving approximately $50,000.00 per year.
