CCSD Form #470 - FY 2016

Application Number #160016070

Funding Year - 2016

Vendor questions and responses:

 

Vendor question #1:

Dell is interested in bidding on the 470 request for category 2. Is the school willing to accept a hardware only bid without cabling?

 

Response to Vendor question #1:

Assuming that we can accept a bid from another vendor for the cabling this could be possible; but preference would be given to complete network solutions as cost considerations would have to be given to additional work necessary to make the solution work.
