(A) WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM PILOT PROJECT
Description. The County of Kauai is seeking a Professional Service Provider with expertise in computer sciences, software integration and database management to provide planning, implementation, training, and related services to implement a computerized Maintenance Management Information System (MMIS) as a pilot project at one or more of the Countys Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTP). The County operates four WWTPs that range in capacity from 0.3 to 2.4 million gallons per day, and include a diverse variety of electrical and mechanical equipment that are considered to be end items of maintenance. In addition, there are sewage pump stations and sewage collection systems that include equipment and fixed assets (pipelines, manholes and service laterals) that periodically require maintenance, along with the Countys mobile equipment needed for operation of the sewage systems. The County has identified a need to develop a MMIS that keeps track of the maintenance needs and history for the equipment and assets; generates scheduled preventative maintenance (PM) work orders; tracks completion of the work orders and other unscheduled corrective actions and repairs; and provides a management tool for inventory management, work scheduling, budgeting and related activities.
Work will include all services necessary to inventory the WWTP and related facility equipment, maintenance schedules, etc; recommend a computer software and hardware system for the MMIS; install and integrate the selected computer system into the Countys computer network; develop and code the maintenance information into the MMIS system; implement the PM and work order system and train County staff on the use of the system to ensure its implementation and operation.
Interested parties or firms are invited to demonstrate recent experience with development and implementation of a MMIS within a municipally owned utility or public works environment. Demonstrated experience of successful design and implementation of such a system with at least two public agencies or utilities within the past five years is desired.
ESTIMATED FUNDING: $80,000.00
ESTIMATED PROJECT TIME: 18 to 24 months.
