Agenda Item #56


Title
Technology Infrastructure Design Services for Southwest Middle School

Discussion

The funding was established during the 2006/2007 Revenue Anticipation Notes and earmarked for structured cabling upgrades to support the Sunrise Standard initiative (Strategic Plan 2.1.2).

The Educational Technology Division recommends utilizing Premier Engineering for design services at Southwest Middle School.  Premier Engineering Group, LLC is an approved contractor under RFQ #0807/LH expiring  12/31/2013.

The fixed fee was negotiated rather than contracting with estimated hourly rates.  The savings estimate is approximately $27,300.  Design conduit connection services to connect Southwest Middle and Turner Elementary Schools were also negotiated which will reduce leased fiber services by $5,400 annually.  The task assignment contract and proposal are included in this Board Agenda item.



Recommendation
Approve design task assignment agreement for $54,500.00 for technology infrastructure design services at Southwest middle School.
