4. Discussion & Action: Project Request — SFBid (PUC)
Seeing that representatives from the Public Utilities Commision (PUC) arrived to the meeting prior to the Port, Mr. Wagner switched the order of agenda items #4 and #5.
Ms. Julie Ansell presented on the PUC’s SFBid project, which was previously spearheaded (but never completed) by the Department of Public Works (DPW). Ms. Ansell stated that the total project request of $600,000 would come from the PUC’s operating budget.
She stated that the project’s total cost is unknown, since shared use of the system will likely be extended to other departments in the future. For the PUC’s sole use however, Ms. Ansell stated that the department would expect to spend approximately $1.2 million to complete the project.
The Subcommittee agreed on the following changes to scoring in Ms. Ansell’s presentation:
- Innovation: 2
- Compliance: 2
- Transparency: 2

A motion to approve the project request was passed and approved.
5. Discussion & Action: Project Request — IT Strategic Plan (Port)
Ms. Susan Kearney presented on the Port’s IT Strategic Plan (formerly entitled “Retired Legacy Applications”).
Ms. Kearney stated that the project was previously approved for $75,000 but that the scope had since changed. Consequently, she now sought approval for $75,000 in addition to the previously approved amount, all of which would be sourced from the Port’s operating budget.
A motion to approve the request was passed and approved.
6. Discussion & Action: Proposal to Change Regular Meeting Schedule & Calendar Review
Mr. Wagner proposed that the standing day of Subcommittee meetings be moved to the first Friday of each month. This proposal was unanimously approved by the Subcommittee.
There was general discussion regarding agenda items in the months ahead. Mr. Wagner suggested that a list of approved projects in year one be brought back to the Subcommittee closer to the start of the budget cycle.
7. Public Comment
There was no public comment.
The meeting adjourned at 10:59 a.m.
