          requirements and evaluation criteria vary depending on the purchasing category of the RFP.
           Bidders are responsible for understanding and complying with the appropriate program
          requirements.

3.6       PROPOSAL EVALUATION AND SELECTION PROCESS: The proposals submitted in
          response to this solicitation shall be evaluated for award based on the criteria described in
          the Proposal Evaluation Criteria section of this Request for Proposal.

          The District may request additional information from any or all Proposers after the initial
          evaluation of the proposals to clarify terms and conditions.

          Based on the District's review of the proposals received, a short listed group of Proposers
          may be selected. The short listed firms may be required to make verbal presentations of
          their qualification to the District. If a presentation is determined to be required, the
          presentation will be considered in the overall technical rating.

          The contract will be awarded to the best-qualified Proposer, after price and other factors
          have been considered, provided that the proposal is reasonable and is in the best interests of
          the District to accept it.

          The right is reserved, as the interest of the District may require, to reject any or all proposals
          and to waive any irregularity in the proposals received. In addition, any proposals which, in
          the opinion of the District, fail to meet the Supplier Diversity Program Requirements,
          will be rejected.

          The District will furnish all Proposers a written Notice of Proposed Contract Award after
          evaluating all proposals. After receipt of such Notice of Proposed Contract Award, any
          unsuccessful Proposers may request the reason(s) their proposal was not selected. In the
          event a Proposer elects to protest the District’s selection, the protest must be submitted in
          writing to the District’s Process Owner, Supply Chain Services Department, within five (5)
          business days of the Notice of Proposed Contract Award. The District’s Contract Award

          public record or document that is not exempted from disclosure by the express provisions
          of the Act. Each Proposer shall clearly identify any information within its submission
          which it intends to ask the District to withhold as exempt under the Act. Any information

          from public disclosure as "proprietary” or “confidential” must be identified as such at the
          time of first submission of the Proposer’s response to this RFP. A failure to identify
          information contained in a Proposer’s submission to this RFP as "proprietary” or
          “confidential” shall constitute a waiver of Proposer’s right to object to the release of such
          information upon request under the Act. The District favors full and open disclosure of
          all such records. The District will not expend public funds defending claims for access

          the District’s possession which were submitted to the District by any Proposer pursuant
          to this RFP. The indemnity agreement each Proposer will be required to sign and submit

3.18      SUPPLIER DIVERSITY PROGRAM:

          A. POLICY STATEMENT

                It is the policy of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District to achieve full and equal
                opportunity for all persons desiring to do business with the Sacramento Municipal
                Utility District. Beginning in 1992, the District initiated steps to encourage
                contracting and subcontracting with women and minority business enterprises. The
                District made significant and measured progress toward correcting past
                discrimination in the District’s contracting practices. However, the results of a 1998
                Disparity Study indicated that statistically significant disparity continued to exist in

                specific procurement categories in the District’s contracting with women and certain
                ethnic groups. Accordingly, the objective of the Supplier Diversity Program is to
                eliminate statistically significant disparity through the use of progressive contracting
                practices and procedures that address the remaining disparity within the procurement
                categories identified in the 1998 Disparity Study.

          B. REQUIREMENTS AND PROGRAM ELEMENTS

                A description of the District’s Supplier Diversity Program is included in Section 6 of
                this Request for Proposals. Proposers must comply with all the requirements specified
                in Section 6 and complete the forms titled, “Designation of Subcontractors and
                Suppliers” Form and “Supplier Diversity Program Compliance Documentation”,
                included in Section 5 of this document to be considered responsive. Evaluation of this
                proposal may include price advantages for designated prime contractor and
                subcontractor participation, as well as evaluation credits for achievement of designated
                participation goals, conducting a broad outreach effort or good faith effort, and self-
                performance options as described in Section 6. Some of these requirements have
                time-sensitive deadlines for compliance. Bidders who delay implementation may
                risk disqualification.

1. Evaluation Criteria 1 - Compliance with Supplier Diversity Program Requirements

    Compliance with the provisions of the Supplier Diversity Program will be the initial
    screening criteria, before evaluation of all other requirements. On contracts over $50,000

    Outreach Effort and M/WBE participation goals apply to all prime contractors (regardless of
    prime contractor’s status as a M/WBE). The Proposer may declare “self-performance status”
    only if there is no opportunity for subcontracting that is either functionally or economically
    feasible. This would also declare that the Proposer is capable of and intends to accomplish
    all elements of the proposed scope of work without the use of subcontracts as defined by the
    Public Contract Code. Otherwise, Proposers must comply with the provisions stated above if
    the dollar amounts are applicable.

2. Evaluation Criteria 2 - Fulfillment of SEED Program Requirements

     The Proposers will receive up to ten percent (10%) evaluation credit based on the extent to
     which the proposal meets the REBE contracting goals. These goals are spelled out in the
     Supplier Emerging Enterprise Development section of this document.

3. Evaluation Criteria 4- Proposer’s Response to Technical and Functional Requirements

    This section shall include the WCMS Requirements Evaluation Matrix Form (Section 5-12)
    and any additional explanation of how the proposers product meets the functional and
    technical requirements listed in Attachment A , sections 6 and 7.

5. Evaluation Criteria 5 - Proposer's Experience and Qualifications

    This section shall include, but is not be limited to, an evaluation of the responses to the
    following:

     A.   A statement describing the origin, background, and size of the Proposer's company.
     B.   A description of the Proposer's expertise in the area covered by this Request for Proposal.
     C.   A description of the Proposer's previous electric utility and public agency experience.

          shall include names of client representatives and their phone numbers.

6. Evaluation Criteria 6 - Proposer's Ability to Respond to District's Needs

     In this section, the Proposer shall provide evidence of its responsiveness to current and
     previous clients' requirements both with respect to timeliness and quality of performance as
     they relate to the scope of this Request for Proposal (Attachment A, Sections 9 through 14).

                 5.10 SUPPLIER DIVERSITY OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
                             COMPLIANCE DOCUMENTATION



The District is committed to procuring the most cost-effective professional services, which provide
the greatest value to the District’s customer-owners. To achieve this, the District will seek the
largest pool of qualified bidders who can actively compete for these contracting opportunities. This
includes actively seeking the participation of gender and ethnic groups who have historically been
underutilized. Furthermore, the District expects its prime contractors to support these efforts to
increase overall participation, by providing subcontracting opportunities, especially among
underutilized business enterprises.


Proposers must complete this document to demonstrate compliance with the following Supplier
Diversity Program requirements:

          On bids over $50,000, where the Proposer has subcontracting opportunities, the proposal
          must include documentation of a “Broad Outreach Effort.” In addition, Proposers are
          encouraged to evaluate the scope of work to determine areas suitable for M/WBE
          subcontracting participation. If the proposal has no subcontracting opportunities, the
          Proposer has the option to declare that the Proposer will Self-Perform all contracted
          content. Accordingly, Proposers must execute their subcontracting plans as submitted
          unless granted specific exemption by the District. Proposers also agree to promote the
          goals of the District’s Supplier Diversity Program in other subcontracting opportunities
          that may arise after award and agree to conduct Supplier Diversity subcontracting
          workshops for work not subcontracted by a specified date following contract award.

     PROPOSER TO COMPLETE (Check only one (1) Statement):
_____ Broad outreach performed
_____ I have read and understand the Supplier Diversity Program requirements described in this
 Initials Request for Proposal. I have submitted the required Broad Outreach Effort documentation. I
          have satisfied the Supplier Diversity subcontracting objectives for this Contract as
          evidenced by the certified subcontractors listed on the preceding Designation of
          Subcontractors and Suppliers Form. I understand that the District only recognizes M/WBE
          certifications issued by agencies that comply with 49CFR26. I have completed a
          Minority/Women Owned Business Enterprise Declaration form and included a copy of this
          certification for each subcontractor/supplier for whom credit is claimed.

_____ Self Performance declaration


_____ I have read and understand the Supplier Diversity Program requirements described in this
 Initials
          Request for Proposal. I hereby declare as the prime contractor that there is no opportunity
          for subcontracting that is either functionally or economically feasible therefore, I must
          perform 100% of the work for this contract and claim a self-performance status. I further
          understand that it is a breach of contract to declare self-performance and later subcontract
          out any portion of this work after award without first obtaining the District’s written
          approval followed by full compliance with the Supplier Diversity Program.
Note:     There are “other” procurement considerations that a prime contractor who self performs 100% of the SMUD
          contract work can utilize to assist SMUD in achieving increased Supplier Diversity participation in contracting
          opportunities. Examples include transportation, printing, travel, legal and other ancillary services. Please
          contact SMUD’s Supplier Diversity Program Coordinator for assistance in this area.

6. SUPPLIER DIVERSITY PROGRAM
  6.1 SUPPLIER DIVERSITY PROGRAM POLICY

     6.1.1     Introduction and Program Objectives: It is the policy of the Sacramento Municipal
               Utility District to achieve full and equal opportunity for all persons desiring to do
               business with the Sacramento Municipal Utility District. The District also strongly
               encourages subcontracting because it is a useful economic development tool and
               supports diverse utilization of the business resources available to the District.

     6.1.2     Program Basis: Beginning in 1992, the District conducted its first Disparity Study to
               determine if the District’s procurement practices resulted in statistical underutilization of
               available ethnic minority and woman-owned businesses. As a result of that study, the
               District initiated steps to encourage contracting and subcontracting with women and
               minority business enterprises. The District made significant and measured progress
               toward correcting past discrimination in the District’s contracting practices. However,
               the results of a 1998 Disparity Study indicated that statistically significant disparity
               continued to exist in specific procurement categories in the District’s contracting with
               women and certain ethnic groups.

     6.1.3     Current Program Practices: Accordingly, the objective of the Supplier Diversity
               Program is to eliminate statistically significant disparity through the use of
               progressive contracting practices and procedures that address the remaining disparity
               within the procurement categories identified in the 1998 Disparity Study. This policy
               applies to all prime contracts up to $1,000,000 on an annualized basis. It also applies
               to subcontracts up to $1,000,000 on an annualized basis. The primary mechanism for
               promoting this policy is the use of a price evaluation advantage in which qualified
               bids are discounted 5%, up to a maximum of $50,000, to determine the lowest
               qualified bid. This price advantage is applied to qualified prime and subcontract bids.


  6.2 SERVICE CONTRACT PARTICIPATION CRITERIA

     6.2.1     Prime Contractors: The District’s 1998 Disparity Study demonstrated statistically
               significant disparity in contract awards to African American, Hispanic American and
               Woman-Owned professional services contractors. Accordingly, Proposers who are
               certified African American, Hispanic American or Woman-owned businesses are
               eligible for the 5% price evaluation advantage.

     6.2.2     Subcontractors: The 1998 Disparity Study demonstrated underutilization of Minority-
               owned and Woman-owned businesses in subcontract awards. Accordingly, the
               District encourages Prime Proposers to provide subcontracting opportunities for all
               MBEs and WBEs.

  6.3 SUBCONTRACTING REQUIREMENTS

     6.3.1     Overview: All Prime Bidders are required to comply with these subcontracting
               provisions regardless of their own status as a Minority or Woman-owned Business
               Enterprises. Compliance with the Supplier Diversity subcontracting requirements is
               essential for achieving a passing score in the Supplier Diversity bid evaluation criteria
               described in Section 6.4. Proposers should be fully familiar with these requirements.


     6.3.2 Proposers must submit a “Designation of Prime Contractor, Subcontractors and
           Suppliers” Form. Proposers must list each proposed subcontractor and identify each
           as a Minority-Owned Business (MBEs), Women-Owned Business (WBEs), or Other
           Business (OBEs).

     6.3.3     Broad Outreach Effort: The District requires Proposers to conduct a “Broad Outreach
               Effort” as described in Section 6.6, to solicit subcontract participation. Proposers
               may use more than one subcontractor within each qualifying ethnic minority group to
               meet the participation goals.

     6.3.4     Self-Performance Declaration: If the Proposer determines that there are no functional
               or economically feasible subcontracting opportunities and the Proposer is capable of
               performing 100% of the work, then the Proposer may declare Self-Performance
               Status. The Proposer must complete and sign the Self-Performance statement on the
               Supplier Diversity Program Compliance Documentation Form.

          6.3.4.1 Post-Award Subcontracting: Successful bidders who claimed Self-Performance
                  Status in their proposals may not subcontract any work without the prior written
                  approval of the District. Any subsequent approved subcontracting will require the
                  Contractor to conduct a Broad Outreach Effort (as defined in Section 6.6.2) and
                  either meet the subcontracting participation goals or submit full documentary
                  evidence of its Good Faith Effort (as defined in Section 6.7.).

          6.3.4.2 Post-Award Hiring: A declared Self-Performing contractor shall also declare that
                  he or she has not nor will not hire employees subsequent to the date of issuance of
                  the Invitation for Bid, whose employment would have the effect of eliminating
                  sub-contracting opportunities that otherwise would have existed. This provision
                  does not preclude a Proposer from hiring additional staff in order to expand the
                  quantity but not the nature of work currently being done by the Proposer.



          Note: There are “other” subcontract considerations that a prime contractor who self performs 100% of the
          SMUD contract work can utilize to assist SMUD in achieving increased participation in contracting
          opportunities. Examples include transportation, printing, travel, legal and other ancillary services. Please
          contact SMUD’s Supplier Diversity Program Coordinator for assistance in this area.

  6.4 SUPPLIER DIVERSITY PASS/FAIL EVALUATION CRITERIA

               The first step in the bid evaluation process is to determine whether a bid is compliant
               with the Supplier Diversity Program requirements. These “Pass/Fail” criteria are:
               Each Proposer, with subcontracting opportunity, is required to perform an acceptable
               Broad Outreach Effort in accordance with paragraph 6.6.2. Proposers may claim Self-
               Performance.
               Each non-Self Performance Proposer is required to either achieve the subcontracting
               participation goals or perform an acceptable Good Faith Effort, in accordance with
               paragraph 6.7, in order to qualify for further proposal evaluation.

               Proposals that meet the Supplier Diversity criteria will then be considered for further
               evaluation in accordance with the published evaluation criteria.

  6.5 APPLICATION OF FIVE PERCENT PRICE EVALUATION ADVANTAGE &
      EVALUATON CREDITS

     6.5.1     Prime Contractor’s Price Evaluation Advantage: The District will extend a five (5)
               percent price advantage to the total bid amount submitted by certified African
               American Hispanic American, or Women Owned prime contract Proposers. The 5%
               price advantage applies to prime contracts with an annualized value of $1 Million or
               less. The maximum price advantage allowed on each contract is $50,000. The 5%
               price advantage allows SMUD to reduce a bidder’s total price by 5% for evaluation
               purposes only.

  6.6 BROAD OUTREACH EFFORT BID NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE

          In order to provide all members of our diverse business community with equal opportunities

                  listing of all subcontractors and suppliers who have responded to District outreach
                  efforts and have expressed an interest in participating in the contract. The District
                  will also make a preliminary attempt to identify potential subcontracting
                  opportunities, search the District's Vendor database for subcontractor's who are
                  classified as performing work in the identified categories, and provide this listing

               District does not accept self-certification.

  6.10 SUBSTITUTION OF SUBCONTRACTORS

  6.12 PROMPT PAYMENT

    6.12.1 The District shall provide prompt payment of verified invoices to any
           MBE/WBE/OBE firm, which meets the definition of an "economically disadvantaged

           Invoices must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in the
           Contract documents. District shall provide a payment penalty for any late payment at
           an annual rate of the Prime rate plus 2 points.

  6.13 CONTRACT COMPLIANCE

    6.13.1 The District shall maintain post award monitoring of any contract, which includes
           M/WBE participation. Contractors will be required to maintain certified payroll

           related documentation may be required and shall be provided when requested by the
           District to verify M/WBE participation equal to or greater than the participation levels
           stated at the time of award. No substitution of subcontractors will be allowed without

  6.14 FALSIFICATION OF INFORMATION

     6.14.1 Falsification of information on the forms required for certification may cause the District
            to cancel any existing contracts with the vendor and disqualify the vendor from
            contracting with the District in the future.

     6.14.2 Firms claiming M/WBE status under false pretense; i.e. listing M/WBEs for scopes of
            work that they will not fully perform or utilizing M/WBE as a pass-through to
            achieve the participation goals, will be disqualified from doing business with the
            District for a period of not less than one year and no more than five years unless
            determined by the General Manager that such firm should never be permitted to
            propose on a District contract, and the District may seek any legal remedies available
            under the law.

7. SUPPLIER EMERGING ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT (SEED) PROGRAM


     7.1       Introduction- The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (the District) is committed
               to achieving full and equal opportunity for ratepayers doing business with the
               District. The District recognizes the economic benefit provided by the District’s
               contracting activity and has adopted this policy to promote the economic
               development of its ratepayers. This program will provide direct economic benefit to
               the District’s Emerging Business Enterprise customer-owners, and will complement
               other District economic development programs.

     7.2       Overview- The District’s Supplier Emerging Enterprise Development (SEED)
               Program creates two targeted opportunities for Ratepaying Emerging Business
               Enterprises (REBEs) wishing to contract with the District. To qualify, these
               businesses must be certified as Emerging Business Enterprises and have been
               ratepayers for the past six months. The Sheltered Market program component offers
               REBEs exclusive bid opportunities for certain contracts up to $50,000. All other
               procurements provide REBEs with a 5% price advantage. Non-REBEs may receive
               this price advantage for the value of all proposed subcontracting that utilizes REBEs.

     7.3       Program Goals and Incentives- The District believes there are significant mutual
               advantages to the District, ratepayers and the community through the utilization of
               REBEs. Therefore, the District promotes a goal of maximum REBE participation in
               District contracts. To achieve this, the District has established the following program
               components and applicable incentives:

           7.3.1    Sheltered Market- provides certified REBEs with designated bid opportunities for
                    procurements up to $50,000 (on an annualized basis for multi-year procurements).
                    These solicitations are limited to those goods and services where the District has
                    determined that there are at least three qualified REBEs capable of providing the
                    deliverable goods or services. Sheltered Market procurements are solicited only to
                    REBEs and are awarded competitively to the highest rated Proposer. Sheltered
                    Market opportunities are offered at the discretion of the procuring department in
                    conjunction with Supply Chain Services.

           7.3.2    SEED Price Advantage- applies to all procurements not offered as Sheltered
                    Market procurements. This program component offers certified REBEs a 5% price
                    advantage for evaluation purposes. The maximum price advantage is $50,000,
                    which is 5% of a bid of $1 Million. Bids over $1 Million will receive the maximum
                    price advantage of $50,000.

           7.3.3    SEED Subcontracting- Non-REBE bidders may participate in the SEED program
                    by subcontracting with REBEs. The District currently promotes a minimum goal of
                    20% REBE subcontracting. Non-REBE bidders receive a 5% price advantage
                    applied to all REBE subcontracting bids, up to a maximum advantage of $50,000.
                    This provision applies to all procurements except the Sheltered Market.

2253-Internet Content Mgmt RFP-rev1.doc                                                   RFP Services.dot
SACRAMENTO MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT                                              RFP NO. 2253.CAB



           7.3.4    RFP Evaluation Points- Solicitations that utilize the Request for Proposal (RFP)
                    are evaluated using weighted criteria. Ten points will be awarded to REBE prime
                    proposers. Non-REBE prime proposers will earn up to 10 pro-rata points for
                    achieving 20% or more REBE subcontracting. Proposals with less than 20% REBE
                    subcontracting will be awarded pro-rata points for the amount of REBE
                    subcontracting. This provision applies to all RFP procurements except the Sheltered
                    Market.

     7.4       Certification and Qualification- To qualify as a REBE, the business must be certified
               as an Emerging Business Enterprise in accordance with the District standard (see
               Definitions section). Participating REBEs must be certified by the bid-opening date in
               order to qualify for the price evaluation advantage. The District will accept
               certifications by:

           •   State of California, Department of General Services, Office of Small Business
               Certification and Resources (OSBCR)
           •   City of Sacramento, Emerging and Small Business Development Program
           •   Sacramento Municipal Utility District, Supplier Diversity Program. The District
               provides REBE certification of firms wishing to contract with the District under the
               SEED Program. The Supplier Diversity Program unit manages this certification
               process.

               In addition, the business, the business owner, or one of its officers, if the business is a
               corporation, must have been a District ratepayer for the preceding six months prior to
               the bid opening date. REBE bidders must submit the District’s “Emerging Business
               Enterprise Form” and attach evidence of receiving District electric service (see forms in
               Section 5 )

     7.5       Subcontracting- The District currently promotes a minimum goal of 20% REBE
               subcontracting. To receive credit toward this goal, non-REBE bidders must submit the
               District’s “Designation of Prime, Subcontractors and Suppliers Form” (see forms in
               Section 5 ) and list the REBEs they propose to utilize. REBE subcontractors must fulfill
               a commercially useful function. Business arrangements where REBEs do not add
               substantial, identifiable value to the deliverable product or service are not acceptable.
               Certified REBEs must also complete and have the prime bidder submit the District's
               “Emerging Business Enterprise Form” (see forms in Section 5). Participating REBEs
               must be certified by the bid opening date.

     7.6       Definitions:

               Certified: indicates that a certifying authority, such as the District’s Supplier
               Diversity unit, the State of California, Department of General Services, Office of
               Small Business Certification and Resources (OSBCR) or other certifying authority,
               has approved the firm for a particular economic designation, such as Emerging
               Business Enterprise.

SACRAMENTO MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT                                              RFP NO. 2253.CAB



               Emerging Business Enterprise (EBE): a business that has been certified as meeting
               the District EBE standard. For SEED Program qualification, EBEs will be certified
               as having not more than $5 Million average annual revenue over the past three years,
               and no more than 50 employees.

               Price Advantage: for this policy refers to a five percent discount applied to the total
               bid amount submitted by a REBE, or a five percent discount applied to the value of
               the subcontracting bids from one or more REBEs. This discount is subtracted from
               the total proposed cost or price before the bid is competitively evaluated.

               Proposer: refers to the primary firm responding to the proposal, which will be
               responsible for signing the contract and which has primary responsibility for
               executing the work indicated in the contract.

               Ratepayer: for the purpose of the SEED Program indicates that the bidding REBE,
               its owner, or, if it is a corporation, one of the REBEs officers, has received electric
               utility service from the District for six months preceding the bid-opening date of a
               solicitation.

               Subcontractor: refers to REBE and non-REBE firms named in a proposal and listed
               on the “Designation of Prime, Subcontractors and Suppliers Form”, who will perform
               specific tasks of the contracted work. For District construction contracts the
               definition of Subcontractor as prescribed by the Public Contract Code shall apply.
               For all other District contracts, a Subcontractor is defined as an individual or firm
               providing supplies or services to the Proposer, which are specific to a District
               solicitation, and provided under a separate contract agreement with the Proposer and
               having no employment relationship with the Proposer. As such, payments made by
               the Proposer to individuals must not be subject to payroll withholding taxes.

     7.7       Substitution of Subcontractors- Upon contract award, the Proposer is legally obligated
               to subcontract with those firms listed on the “Designation of Prime, Subcontractors and
               Suppliers” form in the proposal. Substitution of any subcontractor requires prior written
               approval from the District. If the winning Proposer received SEED Program price
               advantage(s), the Proposer will be required to replace the rejected subcontractor with
               another qualified REBE subcontractor.

     7.8       Prompt Payment- The District will provide “prompt payment” to any REBE or non-
               REBE firm that also meets the definition of an “economically disadvantaged business”.
               Specific qualifications and conditions are contained in all standard District solicitations.

SACRAMENTO MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT                                              RFP NO. 2253.CAB



     7.9       Contract Compliance- The District may conduct post-award monitoring of any
               contract, which includes REBE participation. Contractors are required to maintain
               certified payroll reports by the contractor and all subcontractors, regardless of contract
               amount. The District may require the contractor to provide other related documentation
               to verify REBE participation equal to or greater than the participation levels stated at the
               time of award.

     7.10      Falsification of Information- Falsification of information on the forms required for
               certification may cause the District to cancel any existing contracts with the
               Proposer/vendor and may disqualify the vendor from contracting with the District in
               the future.

               A firm claiming REBE status under false pretenses will be disqualified from doing
               business with the District for a period of not less than one year and not more than five
               years unless the District's General Manager determines that the offending firm should
               be permanently barred from bidding on a District contract. False pretenses include
               designating REBEs for scopes of work that they will not fully perform, using an
               REBE as a “pass-through” to inflate actual participation, or any other action that
               subverts the District’s intended benefits to REBE participation. The District may
               seek all legal remedies available under the law against such proposers.

     7.11      Additional Information- The District’s Supplier Diversity Unit is responsible for the
               administration of the SEED Program. The Supplier Diversity Unit is available during
               regular District business hours, to provide all SEED Program participants with
               additional information resources to encourage participation in the SEED Program. The
               Supplier Diversity Unit can be contacted by telephone at (916) 732-5623. In addition,
               the District publishes current procurement opportunities and program information on its
               Internet website at www.SMUD.org.

POTENTIAL HEALTH RISKS OF ASBESTOS EXPOSURE:
Asbestos becomes a health hazard only when fibers are released into the air where they may be inhaled or ingested. Asbestos
does not present a hazard if it is not disturbed, if it is properly covered, or if the fibers are bound, as in floor tiles or “transite”
boards.

Certain risk factors are relevant to the development of asbestos-related diseases, such as: the number, concentration and size of
the asbestos fibers inhaled or ingested; the duration of the exposure and the length of time since exposure and susceptibility to
disease development. If not properly controlled, asbestos may cause scarring of lung tissue (called asbestosis), cancer of the
chest cavity lining (called mesothelioma), or lung cancer. Studies show the relationship between asbestos exposure and disease
development has involved groups of workers who were heavily exposed to asbestos in occupational activities; that an extremely
low incidence of disease is expected in populations with low levels of exposure; and that asbestos concentrations in buildings
with asbestos might not differ significantly from concentrations found in the outside air in many urban environments. Although
exact risk assessment is difficult, experts are in agreement that exposure to airborne asbestos fibers should be minimized to the
lowest feasible levels.

ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM:
An Asbestos Operations and Maintenance Plan is in effect to insure proper warning labels and to periodically inspect and
document the condition of the asbestos containing material and to make repairs, if necessary. Air samples taken in the
Headquarters Building in 2001 indicated no asbestos above EPA clearance levels.

DO NOT DISTURB THE ASBESTOS:
Moving, drilling, boring, sanding or otherwise disturbing any asbestos-containing materials may present a health risk and,
consequently, shall not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified, equipped to handle asbestos, or does not have a valid
Asbestos Work Permit from Safety, Health & Environmental Services. Should you become aware that asbestos materials have
been disturbed or if you have questions, please call Del Strain, Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds (916) 732-5315, or
Larry Brilliant, Manager, Safety, Health & Environmental Services Department at (916) 732-5269.

1 Scope of Services
      The Sacramento Municipal Utility District seeks proposals to address the requirements
      associated with the implementation of a Web Content Management System (WCMS) to
      support the District’s Internet and Intranets. The solution needs to handle a number of
      functions including content authoring, workflow approval, testing and deploying of content.
      The proposed solution can take one of two forms: an Application Service Provider (ASP)
      model where the application is hosted on the Proposer’s equipment or one where the District
      takes ownership of the associated hardware and software. Either alternative requires vendor
      analysis with justification explaining why the recommended model was chosen
      The scope of services associated with this effort include any/all of the following:
          •    The procurement, delivery, installation and testing of required hardware.
          •    The procurement, delivery, installation and testing of required software.
          •    The development and delivery of documentation required managing the WCMS.
          •    Professional Services associated with training District staff.
          •    Professional Services associated with development of data interfaces to/from existing
               District systems or other third party systems.
          •    Professional Services associated with conversion of all existing content assets stored
               on District’s Internet and selected Intranet sites.
          •    Professional Services associated with the development of custom code or processes
               that enable the WCMS to meet the District’s functional requirements.
      The proposed solution must be compatible with the existing District computing environment
      and business processes, meet all District requirements, and meet future growth projections.

2 Project Objectives
      The key objectives of this project are to provide:
          •    Improved management of content assets on the District’s Internet and Intranet sites.
          •    Improved Content Quality and Timeliness.
          •    Create a framework for the creation, management and deployment of web content for
               the District’s Internet and Intranet.
          •    Improve the accuracy and integrity of the District’s web content

3 Current Operating Environment

3.1     District Overview
      The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (District) is an independent, community owned
      utility created in 1923 under the California Municipal Utility District Act. Under the Act, the
      District has broad powers to acquire, construct, own, and operate facilities to supply light,
      water, heat, power, and other services. At this time, the District’s primary activity is the

2253-Internet Content Mgmt RFP-rev1.doc              A- 1 -                                 RFP Services.dot

                                   ATTACHMENT A – SCOPE OF SERVICES
      generation, transmission, distribution, and sale of electric power from hydroelectric,
      geothermal, combustion turbine, and solar photovoltaic resources with an aggregate
      generating capacity of about 1,000 megawatts. The remainder of the District’s resource needs
      is met through power purchases through long-term contracts and short-term purchases from
      the open market.
      The District’s resource plans include advanced and renewable technologies, such as fuel cell
      generation, residential and small area photovoltaic arrays, as well as being a leader in the use
      and development of electric vehicle technology and energy efficiency technologies.
      The District has a service area of about 900 square miles, which encompasses most of
      Sacramento County and a small portion of Placer County. In this service area, it provides
      electricity to about 475,000 customers.
      The District’s work staff includes about 2,300 full-time employees. In comparison to other
      utilities nationally, the District is considered a medium sized utility. It is, however, one of the
      largest publicly owned utilities in the country.
      The District is governed by a seven member Board of Directors who are elected for four-year
      terms on a staggered basis. The Board of Directors is responsible for making policy
      decisions, including setting rates for the District, and appointing a General Manager, who is
      responsible for the District’s day-to-day operations. The District is not subject to oversight or
      rate approval by the California Public Utility Commission.

3.2      Web Content Management System Overview
      The District has an Internet presence at www.SMUD.org as well as an Intranet comprised of
      multiple departmental and project based sites. Currently the content is posted as flat HTML
      files as well as some Active Server pages.
      The Internet site provides information to the public and news organizations about our
      services, products, and programs. The District has recently added a customer facing
      application to provide energy usage history. The District has plans to expand transactional
      services offered on the Internet to our customers.
      The Intranet provides news and information to the District’s employees. In addition, the
      District has many web-enabled applications deployed on the Intranet with many more in
      development.

3.3     System Architectural Overview
      The Internet site is hosted by an outside hosting service on a Unix platform running an
      Apache. The District currently hosts the customer facing web-enabled applications on a
      Windows, IIS platform.
      The Intranet sites are hosted inside the District on a Windows, IIS platform with some of the
      Employee Self-service web applications hosted on UNIX platform running HAHTsite. The
      District is currently piloting SAP Workplace for Intranet Employee Self-Service.
