PTTRPOSK: To  supply  and  repair  traffic  signal  controllers  to  operate  536  traffic   signals  within Orange County. DTSflTSSTON- Of the 542 traffic  signal controllers the county operates and maintains, 536 are Siemens controllers.   The other six controllers  are equipped with Naztec controllers that can be synchronized with other signals in the City of Orlando that are equipped by comparable brand.   Therefore, based on this  fact  and the following documentation, the  Purchasing and   Contracts   Division   approved   the   standardization   of   Siemens    traffic    signal controllers for the Traffic  Engineering Division: (1)  Operational  Advantages    -  Standardization  will  enable  communication from one traffic  signal to another that allows synchronization  and reduction of stops and delays  for motorists.    This  is  applicable  for all signals  in  unincorporated Orange  County, all  of  its  municipalities  and  the  Reedy  Creek  Improvement District  that also  use Siemens  controllers.   The only exception  is the  City of Orlando, which uses Naztec controllers.   The county has agreed  to use those controllers at signals that should be synchronized with city signals.   The City of Orlando  has  also  agreed  to  use  Siemens  controllers  maintained  by  the  city requiring   synchronization   with   the   county's   signals. Other   operational advantages include enabling communication between traffic  signals in the field and the traffic  management center, which allows staff to remotely monitor and respond to citizen complaints and facilitate traffic control in a timely manner. 50
