Expected to attend: Sonny Segal, Chief Information Officer, DTS Dieter Klinger, Chief Operating Officer, DTS Representative from Office of Management and Budget Staff recommendation: 1. The Committee should affirm their support for 4, rather than 6 year replacement cycles for desk top computers and encourage the restoration, of full funding that. would reyerse this woirj oin~ " n"d'. ~."..c"." '",,,".,tre -.' ',' ~- ~-,";,~;, 2. Staff recommends the adoption of the Executive's recommended FY16 budg~"f~f :q.~yi~e Client Management for $5,800,200. '.. '. Discussion The Device Client Management program (DCM) is part of the Non-Departmental Accounts budget; the FY16 recommendations for DCM are on l. The budget request is a 2.5% increase from the FY15 level of $5,661,200 to $5,800,200. The major change is a reduction in desktop computer replacements by $800,000 to fund an increase in a new Help Desk contract. The impact is an undesirable increase in average life of desktop computers from 4 to 6 years. To gauge progress made and ensure that the FY16 DCM program can address current challenges, a series of questions was posed. These questions, DTS answers and, where appropriate, Council staff comments, are provided below.
2 POLICY 1. On 67-9, the Executive claims that DCM "reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of PCs and Laptops". Please provide historical data that substantiates this claim. DCMhelps reduce the Total Cost ofownership (FCO) ofpersonal computers in several ways: Q. Hardware prices are competed yearly among major manufacturers to obtain the best pricing and quality available b. Hardware pricing has historically been 10%-20% lower than listed Small Business and State ofmaryland prices c. According to Gartner research, Tier 1 and Tier 2 support in an environment similar 'to the County would cost $1M more than the County's current contract pricing. Further, the County's contract includes additional services beyond traditional Tier 1 and Tier 2 support, including: Product Acquisition services Asset Management services Installation/Moves/ Adds/Changes/Disposals Image Development, Testing, and Deployment Services Desk side support, Warranty, and Break-fix Support Website Development, Provisioning User Training and Mobile IT Help Desk Services Program Dashboards MANAGEMENT 1. There is an $800,000 increase for "help desk contract" being added to the base. How was it funded in prior years? Is there expectation that it will be reversed next year? The $800,000 increase for the "help desk contract" was already included in the DCMprogram base budget. Within the overall DCM program budget, DTS re-apportioned funds from the PC/Laptop acquisition budget to the help desk services budget. The net effect is an $800,000 reduction in the PC/Laptop acquisition budget, which alters the DCM PC replacement cycle from an estimated 4-year cycle to an estimated 6-year cycle and results in an estimated 800 fewer replacements per year. Goingforward, DTS will work with OMB to identify opportunities to restore funding for PC acquisitions. Note that the new DCM contract includes support for multiple devices per user (which replaces the pre-existing "primary seat" help desk support model) as well as new and enhanced services and contract service level agreements. The current contract cost is lower than it was prior to the "great recession" during which time DTS reduced contract services and service level agreements to meet prescribed budget reduction targets. Council Staff Comment: The increase in replacement cycles from 4 to 6 years should be reversed as OMB and DTS find ways to reverse the funding shift. The shift from primary seat help desk support to multiple devices per user is a progressive step forward that reflects the increasing use of technology by County employees and their increased availability throughout the day. 2
3 3 2. Who is the current contract holder for the outsourced DCM program? What are their high level Service Level Agreements? When will this contract be re-bid to ensure strong competitive pricing? The current contract holder is L3 National Security Solutions Inc. ("L3 "). Section ofthe Contract identifies the Service Level Agreements, which include, but are not limited to, the following: Mean Time to Answer (Help Desk Calls); First Call Resolution (on Help Desk Calls); Rate ofpc Installations; Customer Satisfaction; Warranty Repair Timeliness; and others. The County issued a Request for Proposal in October L3 (and other vendors) submitted a proposal and was ultimately awarded the contract in August, 2014 in accordance with the RFP. The contract term is three years with three one year renewal options. TECHNOLOGY 1. Please provide a Countywide snapshot of laptops and other portable devices across the County and indicate the replacement cycle and average age for each class of devices; especially document the impact of the $800,000 proposed reduction in Desktop and PC replacements on replacement cycles and age ofequipment by major department. a) The three tables below provide a snapshot ofprojected inventory for desktops and laptops eligible for replacement under the DCMprogram, and average age for each for fiscal years 2016 through Department inventory generally mirrors the aging reflected in the tables below. In years where the number of systems eligible for replacement exceeds available funding, DCMapplies three primary criteria to determine which systems get replaced first: Age ofthe unit (i.e. FIFO) Criticality to ongoing business operations Special requirements (ex: operating system obsolescence etc.) b) DTS does not maintain a County wide inventory ofportable devices such as smart phones and therefore is unable to provide agingfor these devices.
4 4 c) The impact ofthe $800,000 proposed reduction in Desktop and PC replacements is a move from an estimated 4-year replacement cycle to an estimated 6-year replacement cycle. The result is a decrease in an estimated 800 PC/laptop replacements per year.
