BACKGROUND The City of Tacoma is comprised of multiple general government and utility departments. The Planning and Development Services Department (PDS) contracted with Accela in 2013 to move its land use, building, site, and right-of-way permitting to Accela’s SaaS environment. PDS has been using Accela Civic Platform in a production environment since January 2016. The City owns licenses and modules in the Building (formerly Land Management) solution and Accela Citizen Access. Approximately 150 staff users utilize the Accela Civic Platform. Accela has been refined over the past years to create a 100% digital process for our staff and customers. Further, Tacoma has heavily invested in Accela’s APIs, event and batch-scripting, automation, detailed workflows, GIS, and integrated 3rd party applications to create a modern and sophisticated user experience for both staff and customers. The City anticipates awarding one contract. Estimated budget amount anticipated: $185,000 Estimated project start: January 2023 Estimated project completion: June/July 2023 Submittals and/or the selected Consultant(s) may be used for projects of similar type and scope at the sole discretion of the City for up to one year. To learn more about the City of Tacoma, visit www.cityoftacoma.org. 2. STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS City of Tacoma Standard Terms and Conditions apply. (See Appendix C) 3. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS 3.1 A minimum of five years Accela permitting and inspection experience with agencies of similar size and complexity. 3.2 The vendor shall be an Accela Certified Services Partner. 3.3 A preference is for vendor with experience in permitting for a utility provider (ie water, power, etc). 3.4 A preference is a vendor with experience in creating a real time interface between SAP and Accela. 4. SCOPE OF SERVICES AND DELIVERABLES 4.1 Overview The City is expanding Accela to include Tacoma Power’s electrical permitting, inspections, and violations. Tacoma Power provides electricity to more than 181,000 customers in Tacoma, surrounding Cities, and unincorporated Pierce County. Service area details can be found here, https://www.mytpu.org/wp-content/uploads/service-area-map.pdf. http://www.cityoftacoma.org/ https://www.mytpu.org/about-tpu/services/power/about-tacoma-power/ https://www.mytpu.org/wp-content/uploads/service-area-map.pdf Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 Electrical permitting is currently managed through an online portal that collects the applicant’s information and sends the data to SAP for staff processing. Electrical permitting averages approximately 1,100 permits per month. Customer inspection requests are made through an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and through the online portal by customers. Staff use both SAP and a mobile workforce management system to manage inspections and post results. Electrical inspections averages approximately 1,600 inspections per month. Electrical permitting will be added as a new module within the City’s Accela Building solution. Development of the new module shall be consistent with the practices and architecture of the existing module in Accela, see Appendix D for examples. Current processes have been documented that will be reviewed during the project to ensure best practices and efficiencies are met. The scope of this project will include development of new records for electrical permitting, inspections, violation handling, deployment of Accela Citizen Access for customer online submittals and inspection management, real time SAP & ESRI interfaces, and integration with an existing online payment portal. In parallel there will be deployment of a new 3rd party IVR system, an inspection app, and phone payment tool integrated with Accela that will require vendor assistance. During the project, the City will request that you have staff available between the hours of 8– 4:30 Pacific Standard/Daylight time. It is anticipated this project will primarily be completed in a remote capacity for City staff and the selected vendor. Should there be a need for an in-person meeting(s), those will be arranged on a case by case basis. The City will provide the selected vendor with Accela admin credentials, and a remote connection to the City’s network. To utilize the resources provided by the City for remote work, the Consultant Orientation Checklist (Appendix C) will need to be reviewed and signed prior to the start of the project and a computer with Windows 10 will be required to make the connection. 4.2 Permit Types Below are the currently identified permit types Tacoma Power manages for electrical permitting. Please note, the amount and type of permits may change following the requirements gathering stage and determination of the optimal way for electrical permitting to be delivered to customers in Accela: Straightforward/Simpler Permit Types: • Add/Alter Circuits • Annual Inspections • Cell Site • Conversion (Overhead to underground) • Ditch (Physically in a ditch) • Generator/Equipment • Lighting Retrofit • Low Voltage Wiring • Panel Change • Reclaim (Removing electrical service) https://www.mytpu.org/building-remodeling/permits/electrical-permitting/electrical-inspection-permits/ Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 • Repair • Residential Feeder • Service Change (Upgrading, moving physical location, etc) • Service Off > 1 Year • Sign (wall sign, freestanding sign, etc.) • Street Light (state or municipality (except Tacoma) streetlights, not residential new street lights / internal only) • Task Force (internal permit only) • Trade Shows (running power to booths for large events) More Complex based on Amperage and Type of Service: • New Service (Residential and commercial) • Tenant Improvement • Temp Service New Permit Types: • Electrical Vehicle Stations • Solar Internal Processes originating from SAP: • Violation Record • Rate Change Reports: Creation of 10 – 15 reports 4.3 Implementation In additional to the Accela development work, Tacoma is seeking an implementor to assist with: Project Management: • management of the project plan, schedule and project documents • interviews and working sessions with designated City staff to identify and capture process and requirements • development of business process documents • development of a system configuration document • issue log and escalation • status reporting • change order management • quality assurance • by mutual agreement, some project management tasks may be shared between the Implementor’s Project Manager and Tacoma’s Project Manager Accela Civic Platform: • development of record types • record creation, intake and review Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 • record statuses • workflows and review tasks (including automated processes) • collecting of data in Custom Fields and Tables • customized portlets • electronic document review and document management • reports (specifications and development) • invoicing and receiving payments • issuance requirements • inspection types, scheduling, and checklists • conditions, locks, holds and notices • record closeout • accepts in person credit card payments through existing PCI compliant chip readers • accept credit card payments over the phone, and integrate through a Sycurio tone masking application Accela Citizen Access (ACA): • basic configuration of ACA • online application process • electronic documents • payments (including credit card payment portal through ACA) • inspection services • record status Integrations and migrations: • real-time bi-directional connection to SAP • ability to redirect online credit card payments to Sphere for processing • deployment of chip readers for in-office credit card payments • ESRI GIS and XAPO integration • Migrate active records/data from SAP to Accela • Assistance with the parallel task of standing up a 3rd party IVR system and mobile inspector application Technical / Use of: • configuration • scripting • batch scripts • event management scripts • fee calculations, fee schedules and account codes • API’s Change Management and Training: • administrative and technical training • train super users • train all staff • post-production support (1 – 3 months) Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 • design, develop, deliver and manage the communication plan • conduct impact analysis and change readiness • risk mitigation 5.

ADDENDUMS https://omwbe.diversitycompliance.com/ https://omwbe.diversitycompliance.com/ https://www.cityoftacoma.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=169&pageId=26616 https://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=42.56 Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 In the event it becomes necessary to revise any part of this RFP, an addendum will be posted along with this specification on http://www.tacomapurchasing.org. Failure to acknowledge addendum(s) on the required Signature Page may result in a submittal being deemed non- responsive by the City. http://www.tacomapurchasing.org/ Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 APPENDIX A Signature Page Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 APPENDIX B Sample Contract Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 APPENDIX C City of Tacoma Insurance Requirements City of Tacoma Standard Terms and Conditions Consultant Orientation Checklist Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 APPENDIX D Electrical Code Violation As-Is Process Electrical Permit As-Is Process Electrical Code Violation To-Be Process Electrical Permit To-Be Process Accela Example Configurations Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 Accela Example Configurations Below is a sample of standards that should be maintained with the introduction of a new module within Tacoma’s Building Solution in Accela. Additional specifications will be identified during the development process; however, these are high level standards for larger topics. Module Configurations The new module added to Accela will be named “Electrical”. This module will be accessible through Accela Citizen Access (ACA) and be configurable through the Accela administration panel like any other module. In ACA: Record Configurations When creating new Accela record types use a similar hierarchy that is currently utilized with the Permits module. Using the “Electrical” top level the permit types should be organized in a similar fashion as you see in the image below. Please note that final determination of how electrical records will be organized will be determined during the project. Example record structure: Electrical > Services > Residential > New Services Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 Request for Proposal Template Revised: 02/15/2022 All record configuration items should clearly indicate the module and record type. This is to simplify adjustments and reporting in the future. Example below shows a record type called a Work Order in the Permits module. The workflow, custom fields and inspection group all are very clear on what you’re looking at. Example for electrical workflow name: EL_RESNEWSERVICES Record Number abbreviations should be no more than 6 characters and use the format. - Example: WO22-0001 Inspection Configurations The inspection calendars should all be created so that each calendar represents a GIS identified area. How we have Building set up is each calendar represents a single area in Tacoma which is then tied to a specific user.
