4.) QUESTION: Please provide a spec/part number required for the compatible electronics as well as a quantity required.

RESPONSE: Model Number Meraki MS225-48P (3 Each)

5.) QUESTION:  Could we request the RFPs in word format please?

RESPONSE:  It is not our process to send out RFPs in a word version format. In doing so it would make it difficult to do the assessments should those with the word version alter the specs and spreadsheets as we prepare them.

6.)  QUESTION:  Would it be possible to extend the period for this RFP from Monday 11/25 to 12/9?  We would like to give us a chance to review/determine the entire pathway needed for these fiber links and any potential questions that will arise from that process.

RESPONSE:  That will not be possible.  We have a very short window to keep in compliance with USAC’s rules and requirements.  If we push beyond the 25th we will not have enough time to have the bids come back to us and evaluated and to our boards for approval before the filing window closes.
