The University awarded a contract for the Evolv weapons detection system.
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 vendor will provide services and the installation of Dual Lane Evolv Express systems and Single Lane Evolv Express systems, programming and configuration of Evolv Express systems with appropriate software and services, wireless tablets with floor stands for use with Dual Lane and Single Lane Evolv systems, performance measuring and test analytics with Operational Test Kit (OTK), and training for client on how to use the system and assist with process/procedure adjustments.
