The approach we discussed is a proven project methodology that we have performed hundreds of times for clients throughout the country. The scope of our proposal is to assist the City by performing a telecommunications billing audit, inventory, and services review, with a focus on inventorying, verification of services, cost reduction, vendor consolidation, and organization of this complex technology. We believe that this approach not only requires a review of the actual billing and rates, but also a review of the vendor contracts, terms, and how the existing services are used by the City. Our distinguishing points include focus on the following: • City's needs and business benefits • City's options and alternatives • Industry best practices • Cost reduction and ease of management One area of caution regarding these types of projects is the use of a purely contingency -based fee arrangement. On the surface, it would seem that a contingency -based approach has little risk for the City and costs nothing unless savings are found. However, our 25+ years of experience indicates that a purely contingency -based approach is often more costly than a fee- for-service arrangement. We have found that the fee-for-service arrangement is a much better value for our clients than a contingency -based approach. This is due to the fact that the contingency -based pricing approach is based on the City paying a share of the refunds and savings (normally 40% to 50%) calculated against multiple years. Another area of concern is the low level of independence that exists with contingency -based firms and most other telecommunications consulting providers. This concern not only relates to potential dealer/commission relationships with vendors, but also to the integrity of the recommended changes. Because of the way they are compensated, contingency -based companies are highly motivated to recommend the reduction of lines and services in order to increase the amount of savings, regardless of the operational impact on the City. Contractually, the contingency -fee-based companies often require payment when they identify savings as well, regardless of whether or not the City decides to implement the recommended changes. We believe that contingency -based arrangements should be avoided due to the lack of independence, the high potential for dealer relationships and commissions from service vendors or brokers, and the significantly higher overall cost. CLiENTFiRST TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING ' ° * roe osa' orf a ecommunica ions' i ' u i an os eview` onsu in ` ervic�suPP1 "Ilr City of San Rafael, Or TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONSULTING PRACTICE Our telecommunications consulting practice originated as a national practice group within a large public accounting firm more than 25 years ago. After many years, our practice separated from the accounting firm in an effort to maintain our product independence and control hourly rates. This "audit trail" of where we came from is an important distinction because it demonstrates that we are a 25 -year-old consulting practice with a new name.

We provide a wide breadth of professional services that include: • Systems evaluation and assessments • Telecommunications system management projects • Voice and data cable infrastructure design and engineering • LAN/WAN assessments, design, procurement, and implementation • VoIP (Voice -over -Internet Protocol) readiness reviews and assessments • Telecom billing audits and cost reviews • Strategic IT and telecommunications planning • Systems design and alternative analysis • Business continuation planning and disaster recovery planning • Call center planning and operational design • Competitive system and vendor selection • Project management and implementation projects We emphasize that we are a firm because the telecommunications consulting industry, as a whole, is relatively small and contains many single practitioners. CLIENTFIRST is considered well above average among telecommunications and IT consulting firms in the total number of employees and the quantity and quality of services offered. The —y- diverse capabilities of our staff provide the resources necessary to aa' 'o address any of your telecommunications and information technology ® needs. t Many of the industry's leading vendors nationally recognize us for our work because they appreciate the fairness and objectivity we demonstrate when dealing with their organizations. This high level of visibility results in the best competitive proposals in response to CLiENTFIRST's RFP documents the information and provides our clients need to make informed decisions and realize the best value for their purchasing dollar.

The scope of this effort includes the identification of billing errors that may result in refunds and/or credits on various telecommunication billings. Our focus will include, but not be limited to, voice telecommunications services, wide area network (WAN) data connections, cellular telephone arrangements, contracts, and rate structures for the City. We have developed the following information that describes our project approach and work plan for the engagement. Phase 1— Telecommunications Billing and Services Audit 1. Gather billing and system information for the following: • Local telecommunications services • Long-distance billing • Telecommunications services contracts and terms • Telecommunications equipment maintenance contracts • Cellular telephone billing and contract details • General telecom system design and review of in-place equipment • Data network design topology For the purpose of this proposal, we have assumed that the City will allow copies of the billing to be reviewed off-site in either hardcopy or soft form. If it is determined that you would prefer to have the bills reviewed on-site, we will work with you to adjust the project scope. 2. Request services and equipment (S&E) records for your locations We will work with you to obtain the vendor S&E for various billing that requires further examination. These records contain the details needed to perform a complete audit of the telecommunications services and billing. They contain this information in a form that requires a complete understanding of AT&T's complex Universal Service Order Codes (USOC) and the make-up of telecommunications services and billing. TECHNOLOGYCuENTFIRST .N,-Page�S City of San Rafael, CA 3. Develop detailed telecommunications billing spreadsheet tool We will develop a detailed spreadsheet tool that will list the telecommunications equipment and services that are billed by the carrier(s), long distance providers, telecommunications equipment maintenance vendors, and cellular companies. This spreadsheet will be designed to provide you with a management tool to easily perform a spot review of the telecom costs on a monthly basis. 4. Perform a detailed review of the billing, physical inventory, and use of testing equipment to identify the installed telecommunications services and their use for the Voice and Data Network(s) We will review the records gathered thus far in an effort to identify any billing issues or discrepancies. This review will identify areas that are in need of adjustment, credit, or clarification. Any billing errors identified may be subject to refunds and/or credits. We will work with you to determine the best approach for each issue identified. Our process will include an on-site review of each location. Our review will investigate erroneous dates for service migrations, cancellations, and changes. Our complete -global approach to the billing audit and review provides the City with a number of benefits: • Physical verification of installed services • Coordinated vendor credit and refund claims • Comparison to contract rates • General market comparison • Corrected billing and account information • Telecom services strategies to provide high-quality services with the lowest cost carrier offerings • Strategies for optimum long-term operation and cost control • Carrier consolidation and coordination of buying power S. Review Telecommunications Service Order and Payment Process We will meet with City staff (AP/AR/IT) to review the processes that are in place to manage the telecommunications systems and services. Our effort will focus on providing our recommendations regarding best practices in coordinating efforts and maximizing results. Based on our findings and discussions with you, we will also make best practices recommendations regarding the potential use of billing and services software tools and services that may be able to provide the City with additional help in management of this complex area. 6. Review alternative telecommunications services and operational methods Based on the information gathered, we will review alternative telecommunications services and arrangements to reduce costs and improve operations. These alternatives may include the use of integrated PRI services, integration of voice/data in the wide area network (WAN), and integration of the telecommunications systems using the wireless connections, among others. These alternative design approaches can have an impact on the telecommunications cost, equipment maintenance costs, and operational efficiencies. Our analysis will include recommendations regarding the cost/benefit ratio for these alternatives. CuENTARST TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING City of San Rafael, CA 7. Review initial findings with you We will conduct a findings and alternatives workshop with you to review our initial billing review and inventory findings and to verify the services and confirm next steps. We find that this course -setting meeting provides our clients with an interim update as well as active participation in decision-making regarding options and the direction of the telecommunications service alternatives. S. Develop a detailed list of changes and modifications to the billing and services Based on our findings and input received from you during the workshop, we will develop a detailed list of actions that should be performed in order to address any billing errors discovered or recommended changes in services. 9. Present our findings, conclusions, and recommendations We will prepare a presentation -style report to communicate the changes that are needed and detail potential cost reductions. Our report will include a hard and soft copy of the telecommunications services spreadsheet tool to be used by you going forward. Option 1— Pursue Corrections, Credits, and Refund (Optional) Needs Discussion: C'lientFirst and ,Staff Involvement in this phase varies and depends on a number of factors, including experience, timing, and resources, We will discuss this phase with you and customize the approach to meet your needs. 10. Pursue any billing corrections, credits and overpayments We will pursue the credits and refunds due to the City as a result of our audit. We will work with you to place orders with the vendors to make the needed changes, terminate services, and obtain the refunds for billing errors. No services will be terminated without prior approval. We find that our project approach, as outlined above, provides the needed details, review, planning, and approval process needed for a coordinated effort. 11. Manage Vendor Compliance We will work with you to monitor and manage the vendor's compliance with the requested changes, updates, and adjustments. This process typically requires participation from both City staff and CLIENTFIRST consultants. Option 2 — Telecommunications Expense Management (TEM) (Optional) Optional - Not Included in the Project Scope We have the ability to work with you on a monthly basis to provide telecommunications expense management (TEM) services, if needed. TEM is the process by which our staff reviews, audits, documents, and approves telecommunications billing on a monthly basis. Many of our clients benefit from having a monthly service and cost review of each telecommunications vendors bill prior to paying the invoice. Typically, our clients retain our services for the first year after the completion of a telecommunications billing audit to make sure the vendor billing remains corrected and that no additional billing changes are made by the vendors that cause increased costs. Many of our clients have utilized this approach. TECHNOLOGYCLIENTFIRST I age10 25,;, City of San Rafael, CA At this point in the process, it is unknown if this service would be needed. If this type of approach is of interest to you, we would be pleased to provide a proposal for these additional services. We can begin the activities related to this project within ten days of finalizing an agreement for accepting this proposal. We anticipate the total elapsed project time for the various phases to be as follows: Phase 1 Telecommunications Billing Audit 6-10 weeks Option 1 Pursuit of Vendor Credits/ Refunds and Billing Corrections To be determined Option 2 Telecommunications Expense Management Monthly review CONSULTINGCuENTFiRST TECHNOLOGY ° City of San Rafael, CA FEES i 6o'liig Our fees for the proposed project will be based on actual time spent on the project at our discounted government rates. Our normal government billing rates for these types of services is $110 -$140 per hour, depending on the levels and skill -sets and of the consultant(s) assigned to the project. We have discounted our rates further for this engagement. It is our intention to contract for this engagement on a fixed -fee basis (i.e., not -to -exceed amount). Our fee estimate is based on the scope and approach outlined in this proposal. If, during the course of the project, the nature or scope of our work should be requested to change, we would discuss such matters and their effect on our fees with the City of San Rafael prior to proceeding. Our normal policy is to bill monthly as the project proceeds.

Their knowledge of new technology is limited, and they use generalized IT specialists who may be well rounded, but lack the over-all technical strength. That is why many local governments rely on ClientFirst, a consultant and IT services firm, headquartered in Co- rona, California, with oil -ices in Illinois and North Carolina, and specializes in a wide breadth of IT disci- plines. "When dealing with IT companies, it's easy to be- come lost in the jargon of the field, but ClientFirst takes a practical, business management perspective. The company not only helps their clients understand, but works with them extensively to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their infrastructure and applications and what they need for success," observes David Krout, Managing Partner of ClientFirst. The company itself is almost exclusively local government, offering consulting in all aspects of IT Infrastructure, IT Support, IT Mastcr Planning, ERP applications, and Telecommunications. In order to preserve an unbiased stance that measures the quality of various technolo- gies. ClientFirst refrains from reselling hardware and software. This independence allows them to give un- biased recommendations for different environments and situations. Many of ClientFirst's services aim for the better- ment of local communities. Their major software con- sulting service can bolster community development, utility billing, and work management, in particular. They also offer consulting on application management best practices and IT department turnarounds. For more hands-on assistance, clients have supplemental and outsourcing support from which to choose. Cli- entFirst's telecommunications consulting designs phone systems, communications infrastructure and provides carrier contract negotiations. The company provides much of its consulting through local govern- ment agencies and strives to educate its clients as well as aid them in the implementation of comprehensive IT Master Plans they help develop. CLIENTFIRST TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING Understanding the --• Mill scope of ClientFirst's services is best done through looking at their work. When Pl commissioned by the city of Redlands, Cal- ifornia to formulate an IT plan, Client - First did an assess- ment of each city de - David Krout partment's infor- mation technology needs, evaluating ap- plicationpoliciesVand procedures, staffing struc- ture, use of productivity tools, and more. Based on the needs of Redlands' infrastructure and applications, they formed a comprehensive 5 -year plan and educat- ed the city council, providing additional systems engi- neering capabilities and even redesigned their new da- ta center and network. "ClientFirst is not a company that does product sales, but rather offers independent consulting services, like those in Redlands, that stick closely to retaining the best components of an envi- ronment and improving the rest. Combined with the multitude of IT disciplines working under ClientFirst, each client gets advice from subject matter experts who are best trained in each specific field," explains Krout. ClientFirst serves a list of illustrious clients in Illi- nois' Elgin School District U46, Laguna Nigel, CA; Lincolnwood, IL; Castaic Lake Water Agency, CA, and City of Bloomington, IL. With a reputable system of client care that it prides itself on, ClientFirst is an up-and-coming company with a future of promise and prosperity ahead of it as they aim to increase their re- gional IT support services in California and Illinois, as well as national presence in IT planning, software se- lection and telecommunications consulting. The com- pany looks for people who have a passion, as its em- ployees share a common desire to make a positive dif- ference in various communities, rather than simply make a profit. While they currently have 35 profes- sionals, ClientFirst is expecting to boost their head count to 50 by next year.
