Tracking the Spend: $22.8M for Water Board’s Top 5 Buys of IT Services

System analysis, software maintenance and a management system were among last year’s largest contracts for IT services at the State Water Resources Control Board.

The State Water Resources Control Board spent just under $23 million in 2023 on its five largest purchases of IT services.

The board’s mission is “to ensure abundant clean water for human uses and environmental protection to sustain California’s future.” It is one of six entities under the umbrella of the California Environmental Protection Agency.

From Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, the board spent $22,820,933 (with rounding) on its five largest buys, according to the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System. They were:
  • $17,804,095 for development of a new water rights management system, in a Feb. 23 competitively bid contract with Deloitte Consulting LLP that runs through March 31, 2025.
  • $3,326,445 for IT services with AGP Video. The competitively bid contract runs from June 29, 2023, through June 30, 2027.
  • $600,000 for software maintenance support services from Technology Crest Corp. in a contract running from April 6, 2023, through June 30, 2024. It was awarded under an IT Master Service Agreement (IT MSA).
  • $590,393 for “OnBase Maintenance Licensing per Hyland Community FY 23/24 — $339,306.46,” in an Oct. 1 contract with Naviant Inc. that runs through Sept. 30, 2024. It was non-competitively bid as a proprietary offering.
  • $500,000 for system analysis, development, implementation and support from Sumedha Global Computing Inc. in a March 10 contract that runs through June 30, 2025. It was awarded under California Multiple Award Schedules (CMAS).
