Ben B. Dresden Director
Marin County Board of Supervisors
3501 Civic Center Drive
San Rafael, CA 94901
Contract with WinResources in the amount of $53,000 to provide installation, configuration, and
support of general service request and tracking software.
Dear Board Members:
RECOMMENDATION: Approve contract.
SUMMARY: In an effort to improve communication with the citizens of Marin, the Web Steering
Committee has defined several strategic goals for improving government services using Internet
technology. The WinResponse software allows citizens and employees of Marin County to make
requests, file complaints, and obtain information from any location that has Internet/Intranet
access. Costs will be reduced as phone calls are diverted to the web site, and workflow automation
increases. Requests for service can be tracked by management, monitored for performance, and
categorized by department, request type or even supervisor district. Predefined milestones can
trigger automatic email notification to the citizen letting them know the status of their request.
Management and elected officials can view detailed or aggregate reports of citizen requests and
the County’s response.
FISCAL/STAFFING IMPACT: The necessary funding is available in:
Purchase software license $38,000 Account 234-4881
Purchase annual maintenance $5,000 Account 234-2163
Purchase installation services $10,000 Account 234-2533
