The University awarded a contract for T2 Flex Contract to T2 Systems, Inc., Indianapolis, IN, for an estimated $126,577.71.
This purchase is a continuation of our current T2 Flex Software system. This software includes subscriptions to five different services. Flex Professional Edition is the main subscription and the internal side of the parking database. Flex Mobile Enforcement allows the management of devices and the application for issuing citations. FlexPort Accounts, FlexPort Enforcement, and FlexPort Permits manages permits, citations, vehicles, customers, and payments. All of the records and historical data are stored on a T2 hosted platform.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the procurement is software license, upgrade or maintenance. The hosted platform software provided by T2 is proprietary and cannot be purchased elsewhere. Only T2 can provide maintenance and upgrades to their software. The only costs the university will incur are annual subscription fees. The fees will be for the right to use the software, support, and maintenance.
