ANALYSIS/DISCUSSION: (including why Council is considering the item and justification for recommendation)
Since April 2008, the City has been a Granicus customer using their broadcasting capabilities for City
Council and Planning Commission meetings. Granicus has proven itself to be a reliable partner.
Since its founding in1999, Granicus has been a leader in promoting government transparency through
provision of tools to facilitate broadcasting and tracking the decisions made by local governing bodies.
Over 1000 clients in all 50 states, at every level of government
Over 31 million government webcasts viewed
More than 265,350 government meetings online
First fully integrated legislative workflow management system for local government

Although, there have been a number of other companies recently entering the market providing similar
services, Granicus maintains a 97% customer satisfaction rating and a 99% client retention rating.
Even so, the City researched and reviewed a number of competing products. A number of factors led
to the selection of Granicus for this next phase of IT Plan implementation.
Granicus has been a reliable partner to the City for over six years.
They provide a full webcasting service offering including encoding, minutes annotation,
transcription, and closed captioning services.
Their Speak Up citizen participation suite provides an online forum to help cities prioritize
projects and make the best decisions for their community. Citizens can vote on, comment on
and share other citizens ideas, as well as their own such as collecting
ideas for community improvement, obtaining feedback on projects underway and prioritizing
key public initiatives. Speak Up can be up and running just a few short weeks after contract
The Legislative Management system provides for full tracking of the legislative process from
start to finish including full text search to aid in finding specific items, and provides an archive
of the actions taken.
The new Granicus App Store provides an easy way to acquire and launch a growing number of
inexpensive applications developed by Granicus partners. The current list includes tools for
communicating solid waste and recycling schedules, easily publishing financial data, a texting
Agenda Item: 7.E
tool for citizen outreach and others. These new applications are designed to be easily plugged
into the Citys security structure making implementation and maintenance easy.
Granicus provides on-site training and support as opposed to remote only as is common with
other vendors.
A fully-integrated suite of legislative management products from one vendor eliminates the
need for coordination among multiple vendors, especially if problems occur. With Carmels
limited number of technical staff, this is a significant consideration.

Public Consulting Group understands the expectations of the Citys Administrative Services
Department and has a good working relationship with the project team. The PCG Team is
immediately prepared to provide effective Project Management, Oversight and Support Services. Both
managerial and technical staff will be assigned to the project. They will work alongside City staff
providing guidance, oversight and technical support as the Granicus team works with City staff to
define requirements, document workflow and implement the new hardware and software.
The implementation of an Agenda Management and Legislative Management system is an
approved FY 2014-15 Capital Project. The project is funded through a combination of General
Fund and Public Educational and Governmental funding (PEG).
