a.        CDW - $2399.97 from Gloucester Catholic Non-Public Technology LCD Projector. Item 4        

5.        E-rate 18-19 Projects

a.         Upgrade wireless network at GMS including all switches, controllers and access points. Upgrade switches at Cold Springs School. Dyntek Solutions was the vendor with the highest ranking and came in at $131,567.44. The district would pay 20% (29,167.44) of the cost and e-rate would pay 80% (102,400.00).

b.        Increase bandwidth from 1G to 2G. The monthly recurring cost would go from $8,049 ($1,609 post discount) to $10,349 ($2,069.80 post discount). This cost covers all internet access and the point to point connection between GMS and GHS. This item is also e-ratable at 80% making the cost to the district.  Block Line Systems is the vendor.

These two projects will allow us to move the district owned equipment at GMS to GHS to replace the end of life equipment at GHS. It will also improve the coverage at GMS to cover multiple locations in the building that have limited access. The equipment at GHS is in a position where we can no longer purchase service - when it fails it must be replaced.
