Background Discussion

Change Order 9 adjusts the Contractor’s scope of work defined in Exhibit B Statement of Work v1.9 contained in Agreement 13-2690JL. The added scope of work identified  is critical for go-live Phase 1 in Fiscal Year 2018.

The required activities include technical development and Quality Assurance testing by Accela and correction for items not accepted due to non-compliance of the requirements defined in Section 1: Drive to Live Scope.

The Accela Product, once implemented will be used to replace Building and Development Services aging permitting system.  Efficiencies with the new system will include permitting online, a robust inspection module, and a consolidation of citizen complaints work process and public works planning related activities into one product.
