Report on the Video Surveillance Service Project in Philadelphia
Alan Butkovitz (ed)
Report on an audit of Philadelphia's Video Surveillance program, which found that the city spent $13.9 million for surveillance cameras but only 102 of the 216 installed cameras were functioning properly. This has resulted in a cost to the city of $136,000 per operating camera. In Jan. 2012, the City awarded $3.2 million in contracts for maintenance/service, supplies and installation of the video surveillance cameras. By the time those contracts were conformed the cost increased to $3.6 million, in addition to the initial $13.9 million already spent. The project has been plagued with problems from the beginning, starting with the assessment and risk phase. The audit also found an unsatisfactory performance from the selected vendor, which resulted in the city terminating the contract and placing the burden on the city's limited resources to manage the surveillance cameras. In addition, there was an absence of warranty information and maintenance records for cameras and other video surveillance equipment that was supposed to be maintained by the Office of Innovative Technology. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
