First published Friday, October 28, 2022
The University awarded a contract for switched Ethernet services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which items available on the spot market or at discounted prices were available for a limited time such that sound business judgment mandated a purchase immediately to take advantage of the availability and price.
The switched Ethernet services will cover statewide offices at DSCC with various Internet speeds based on the requirements of each office. These services are critical for the daily business functions at DSCC and the university. The services will give DSCC the ability to send vital electronic communications, access software and meet university IT security requirements.
