SUBJECT:

Interlocal Data Sharing Agreement


SUMMARY:

The proposed Interlocal Data Sharing Agreement facilitates the data sharing process and allows for the sharing of confidential and public information among SmartSA entities. The Agreement will also ensure that the proper transmission, handling, storage, and protection of data is in place when information is exchanged.

* San Antonio Water System
* VIA Metropolitan Transit
