Bill Print Services Contract Award

On March 31st, 2018, the City elected to use Infosend as the City’s Bill Print Services provider.  RFP 2017/2018/05/P was submitted with four responsive proposals.  DataPrint is the City’s current provider and we are not under a contract to remain with them.  They were also given an opportunity to participate in the RFP process and elected not to provide a response.

The committee selected InfoSend due to their experience with Superion (Naviline) to produce utility bills without modification of the native bill files.  They were also selected for their cost to provide the printed and mailed bills.  We currently spend $110,000 and have budgeted $110,000 for FY19 to pay for bill print services. 

Current bill print services are only in black and white.  Infosend’s front and back in full color will cost $68,376.00 per year to process 11,000 bills per month with 12 months of PDF utility bill archiving.  Any additional funds can be used to provide inserts as needed for City use such as the City of Gallup’s 8th Annual Community Cleanup.

Fiscal Impact:
None. It will be covered by existing approved budget (507-6061-442-47.08).
Recommendation:
Approve contract for Infosend’s Utility Bill Print Services up to current budgeted amount of $110,00
