Summary :
Board approval to spend $5,102,000.00 with Advanced Network Management.

Wireless is a critical part of DCSD’s daily operations. This infrastructure provides students, teachers and staff with the ability to connect a wide range of learning tools within our classrooms and buildings. This allows for flexible and mobile learning environments on all of our campuses.

DCSD IT team in collaboration with procurement released a competitive bid in December 2022, attracting interest from multiple value add resellers. After reviewing all bids we would like to recommend moving forward with Advanced Network Management’s proposal.

The proposal includes the refresh of 93% of our aging access points, the necessary hardware to operate these access points, tools for network access control, and wireless monitoring. It also includes professional services to aid in the configuration and installation of the proposed equipment.

The funding for this spend is included in the 22-23 revised budget.
That the Board of Education approve the supplier spend whose spend is expected to surpass the purchasing threshold specified in Policy DJ under adoption of Consent Agenda.
