Enter into a multi-year Enterprise Agreement with Microsoft resulting in reduced financial impact in 2013. The Enterprise Agreement will provide us with the ability to stay current with our software offerings across the city for the next nine years. Additionally, it will provide the core pieces of a new telephony system that will broaden our communication platform. IT management software packages are then available as are antivirus technologies.
