Management Information Systems - Water and Power Department FY 2012 - 2016 [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) DESCRIPTION: This project provides for the development, upgrade, and maintenance of local area networks (LAN) at each of four departmental worksites; acquisition of equipment to interconnect substations, water facilities, and existing networks; and integration of all information critical to Water and Power (PWP) operations into the same, nonredundant database. It will further: Install routers and firewalls in the Department~s network structure; Convert Water and Power documents and drawings to electronic format and collect/validate field data; Procure an Automated Data Collection/Bar Coding system for the Warehouse; Convert the existing meter and transformer inventory system currently stored on the HP into a client-server application; and Clean existing data prior to beginning the conversion process. JUSTIFICATION: The Department~s October 1991 MIS study found that considerable time savings, administrative and operational benefits would accrue if manual procedures were automated and if existing "islands of automation" were integrated. This would eliminate large amounts of data entry and re-entry performed by several groups, resulting in increased productivity and reduced errors. The barcode project will save time and money by automating inventory utilizing hand-held barcode readers and barcodes. These automated systems reduce time and labor required to perform inventory counts and virtually eliminate data entry errors, thus enabling the department to collect inventory accurately and efficiently at a lower cost and with greater integrity. The existing meter and transformer inventory systems are outdated and not serving the department~s current needs and they need to be converted to a client-server type application. SCHEDULE: The workplan for FY 2015 includes: Vmware Infrastructure Replacement (Blade enclosures and servers); hardware and software for new backup solution; design and construct Disaster Recovery site; IT servers, RAM & processors; SAN enhancement/modules; and IT miscellaneous hardware and software.
