Information
RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the execution of a Sub-Recipient Grant Adjustment Notice for the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) - FY13 State Homeland Security Program (SHSP).
BACKGROUND
The project’s title is the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Enhancement Project. The purpose is to connect the EOC with external antennas allowing for fixed base stations, to extend existing fiber connections with the City of Corpus Christi, integrate camera feeds and to provide electronic tools for information sharing for key EOC personnel. The project will also include the ability to exchange critical decision support with the local National Weather Service directly through peer to peer shareware and applications.
DISCUSSION
Nueces County requested an extension for the EOC Enhancement Project, funding under the FY 2013 of the Homeland Security Grant Program. Due to unforeseen complications with the location and type of fiber optic cable existing on the property, and the need for security clearance for installers, our contractors have not been able to adhere to the previously proposed schedule. Without an extension, the work would not be able to be completed in the time previously allotted. The extension is for another three months, taking the project ending date from January 30, 2015 to ending on April 30, 2015.

No cash match is required on this grant. The total grant award remains at $25,196.
