IT HARDWARE RFP (EMTEC INC.) Recommendation That the Duval County School Board approve the amendment and renewal of RFP NO. 03-19/LM IT Hardware with Emtec Inc. for the period of March 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023 in an amount not to exceed $45,000,000. There are three (3) additional one (1) year renewals remaining. That the Duval County School Board authorize the Board Chairman or Vice Chairman, and the Superintendent, to execute the agreement contingent upon form approval by the Office of General Counsel.

Description The District received a funding commitment decision letter for $16,982.262 to purchase 42,669 student laptops issued to District families who lack a reliable internet connectable device at home to bridge the homework gap. Funds that the Emergency Connectivity Fund provides are intended for at-home devices; the funds can not be used to offset a District's normal computer refresh cycle. The funds are designed to fulfill the unmet needs of students highlighted by the pandemic. The Districts can not require students to bring laptops to class. The commitment letter requires the District to order and have the vendor ship the devices before June 30th, 2022, or return the funds. This additional order would exceed the School Board's previously approved $20,000,000 per year. This amendment increases that approved amount to $45,000,000. Emtec was awarded the RFP through a competitive solicitation for IT Hardware Integration for schools and administration sites to provide the following: Windows Servers - Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Workstations/Laptops/Tablets Lenovo Microsoft Tablets - Microsoft Printers Lexmark Laptop Carts and Lockers EMTEC, Inc. is in a unique position as the District's hardware integrator to provide these services and to ensure all components are in place and configured before delivery. These services will improve the District's asset management by increasing the ability to track and manage an expanding IT inventory, as the district manages mobile devices for students, teachers, and administrators. Supplemental Services: Absolute Manage License (Employee/Staff laptops) Etching "Property of Duval County Public Schools" (mobile devices) Custom polypropylene labeling including bar-coding (all devices) Repair and modification of mobile carts (carts) Receiving, imaging, reimaging, delivery, installation, personalization and trash removal (all devices) End of school year cleaning of Laptops (Student interns) Gap Analysis This RFP allows the District to purchase, store, and rapidly deploy computer hardware with minimal disruption to the school. As the District expands wireless access, connectivity, and bandwidth to schools, there is a need to purchase additional devices and refresh older devices while ensuring asset management of those devices. Previous Outcomes Over 65,000 student computers were deployed during the 2021-2022 Fiscal Year. Expected Outcomes Due to the Districts five-year refresh cycle and the Districts desired student to computer ratio, IT anticipates large purchases of devices and related services covered under this contract.
