RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of five (5) agreements pertaining to Westlaw Next and West Complete Library with Thomson Reuters, related to online legal research access and paper book purchases in accordance with the following:
1.  Nueces County Judges Westlaw Next Agreement.
2.  District Attorney Westlaw Next Agreement.
3.  County Attorney Westlaw Next Agreement.
4.  District Attorney West Complete Library.
5.  County Attorney West Complete Library.
BACKGROUND
The County's current Westlaw subscription is expiring from a five year term.  The Office of Commissioners Court Administration has negotiated a renewal that places current subscription accounts into the highest level research tool provided by West (a Thomson Reuter's company), known as Westlaw Next.  Along with getting the highest level of onliine research capability, Thomson Reuters is offering large discounts on recurring paper book purchases.  These are primarily paper book purchases from the District and County Attorney that occur each time there are legislative changes to civil and criminal laws.  A three (3) year term is proposed that will save Nueces County approximately $20,000 over the course of the three year term compared to current rates.
