Assessment of Campus data network infrastructure and identify necessary upgrades and changes that will enable supporting future campus needs; specifically addressing wired, wireless, voice, and video networks. Design of a new network will account for the District’s needs specific to logical infrastructure for the next 10 years. Physical infrastructure will also account for the District’s needs for the next 20 years.

DIstrict IS and Purchasing Departments posted the request for Proposals (RFP) to the public on August 6th, 2018. Seventeen firms attended a mandatory site visit on August 13th, 2018. The deadline for submitting questions regarding the RFP was August 31st, 2018. Answers were issued in mid-September. Responses to the RFP are due on November 6th, 2018, and will be followed by vendor presentations on November 15th, 2018. Once the RFP process is completed a recommendation to award contract will be presented to the Board of Trustees. The goal is to have the selected vendor start implementation of design during the first quarter of 2019. The design process is not funded by Bond Measures X or J. However, the construction and implementation phase will be bond-funded by Measure J. Equipment will be owner furnished, owner installed.
