This paper introduces a use case for using the IES-City Framework artifacts and methodology in the acquisition of a new smart city feature. Involving city management and potential service providers, it shows how this new feature can be acquired with integration with a pre-existing related feature. The challenges of composing one smart city feature with another can be a substantial technical and economic obstacle. Sometimes this obstacle precludes the acquisition altogether. The methods described in this paper can reduce the size of these obstacles so that they can be mastered. This result can benefit the acquirers and offers alike.
