Vendor: Information System Group, Inc.
Change Order amount:
Item 1: The University did not initially request plenum cable for the radios connection. Plenum is used for all cabling in Chicago State University buildings.
Item 2: The edge switches that network the radios are not Power Over Ethernet (POE), thus mid-spans are needed to power the radios. At the time of the bid, it was expected that our edge switch upgrade project would be completed or near completion.
Item 3: Gbits and fiber patch cables are needed in the data center to connect the Meru controllers and our network switches
Item 4: Cages are being purchased to protect the wireless radios where ceiling is low in the Residence Hall (RH) building and in the Jacoby Dickens Center (JDC) where basketballs could potentially hit and damage the wireless radios.
Item 5: The cost reflects purchasing and labor for the installation of wire molds, plates, and cabling material in substitute of using conduits for cable runs in all 13 campus buildings.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
