Analysis:

The Information Technology Department  requested  purchase of new computer hardware and software required to implement enhancements to the Storage Area Network (SAN) file system.  The SAN file system is what allows the city to operate a city wide network and make files, services, and software applications available to city employees.

 

This purchase will allow the Information Technology Department to add additional computer file storage space and enhance the back-up process.

 

Florida Statutes allows municipalities to use competitively bid and negotiated State of Florida contracts and purchasing agreements.  The City is using the State of Florida Technology Contract #250-000-03-1 with Hewlett Packard for this purchase and the pricing provided is in accordance with that contract.  A detailed price quotation is attached for your review.

 

Options:

1.  Approve purchase requisition 39020 to Hewlett Packard Company; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
