AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 22, 2007

 

From:                          Stan Carter, Information Technology Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing  the PBX phone systems annual maintenance agreement

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

Staff recommends approval of the new annual PBX phone systems maintenance agreement with Black Box Network Services.

 

Analysis:        

Current annual State of Florida contract pricing for PBX phone systems maintenance  with vendor Southeastern Telecom is $28,307.00 per year. When maintenance has been required, response times have been slow.  As a result, staff began to consider alternatives. Black Box Network Services can consistently provide a much higher level of service at a cheaper price. After considerable negotiations, Black Box Network Services has agreed to provide annual PBX phone systems maintenance for $18,816.00, resulting in an annual savings of $9,491.00.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the maintenance agreement with Black Box.

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

This item was funded for $28,000.00 in the fiscal 2008 budget. Fiscal impact will be a savings of $18,816.00.
