Questions & Answers pertaining to Dedicated Internet Access Elementary Schools RFP dated 1/9/19

  1. QUESTION: Is there a bid meeting or walkthrough?  I want to make sure I do not miss any mandatory meetings.  



    2. QUESTION:  Is the district looking for installation services or just hardware licensing?


ANSWER:  See question #5 for clarification.


    3. QUESTION:  Is the district seeking ERate funding for the SLA based service  

          agreement? I ask because funding for management of internal connections has  

          become more compliant in recent years.


ANSWER:  The district is not seeking bids for management of Internal Connections.  On

           the Form 470 we did list BMIC and MIBS because at times USAC considers some of the

           software SKUs to include either or both of these services.

   4. QUESTION:  Will the district need any cabling?
