Staff recommends approval of purchase requisition #37866 to the Hewlett Packard Company for the amount of $79,665.90.
The Information Technology Department has requested purchase of new hardware and software to upgrade the existing data backup system used by the City. The current system is no longer efficient and takes too long to complete the necessary system backups. The computer system backup process currently takes 27 hours to complete. The purchase of the requested software and hardware will reduce this time to 3 hours.
This purchase will be made using the State of Florida contract number 250-000-03-1 for Information Technology Hardware awarded to Hewlett Packard and available for use by municipalities. The price quotation and list of items being purchased is attached for your review.
1. Approve purchase requisition #37866 to the Hewlett Packard Company for $79,665.90, or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The funds are available
in the Information Technology accounts listed below. The urgency of this
matter has required staff to realign priorities and utilize funds from other
budgeted projects within the IT Department budget. Staff has also identified
and used cost savings from other existing projects.
