As a part of the project to
improve public safety radio communications in the Vint Hill
area, proposals were requested to provide the microwave
connection of the new Vint Hill site to equipment and
facilities located at the central View Tree site. In
addition, alternatives were requested to allow the microwave
connection to serve as a data link for the County’s
information technology needs, thereby providing a
cost-effective option of serving remote County facilities.
Option A, $64,595, provides the backbone of this
connectivity that would potentially serve other County
facilities in the Vint Hill area.
Three proposals were
received and evaluated by a committee comprised of the
County’s consulting engineer for the public safety radio
system, the County’s radio manager, the IT department and
County Administration. It is recommended that the bid be
awarded to Alcatel in the amount of $240,414 for the Base
bid and Option A.
