Electric Utility-Field Services Meter Routing System Project

Request for Proposals: Electric Utility-Field Services Meter Routing System Project


The City of Redding (City) is requesting proposals from qualified firms or individuals interested in providing an end-to-end GIS-based meter reading and service order routing software application and a GPS navigation solution with Automated Vehicle Location (AVL) for the Field Services Division of Redding Electric Utility (REU) to re- route existing meter reading routes in REU’s service territory, provide on-going daily work reassignment capabilities, optimize route performance and enhance employee safety.

The City intends to procure a contract for a service that is multi-functional, compatible with the City’s geocoded street centerline data, and compatible with both REU’s current field data collection management software and hosted enterprise level customer information management system (CIS).

This project is intended to equalize all meter reading routes initially, as feasible, and allow for daily adjustments with routes based on staff availability and overall daily workload. This project will also automate the scheduling of daily, non-meter reading service work and add an additional tool through the GPS/AVL function for optimizing employee safety and efficiency.

Sealed proposals must be submitted to:

City of Redding: City Clerk; 777 Cypress Ave; Redding, CA 96001
