Published Wednesday June 5, 2013
Renewal entered into with:
Vendor: Infobahn Outfitters, Inc./McDonough Telephone Coop., Inc.
Amount: An estimated $360,000
Renewal: 1st, 2nd & 3rd of 5, 7/1/2013 through 6/30/2016
Pricing Changes: 
decrease - $184,000 savings over the three year period
Service/Product Changes: 
increased bandwidth
Potential Future Renewals: $240,000
Comments: The University is exercising a 3 year renewal at this time for the period FY’14 – FY’16. Current market conditions have dictated the ability to obtain increased bandwidth capacity at a significantly reduced cost resulting in an approximate savings to the University of $184,000 over the three year period. There are no other providers of bandwidth in the University’s service area at this time that would compete for a contract to provide bandwidth to the Macomb campus. It would be economically unfeasible for a different provider from a different service area to come in and install all new ingress/egress fiber, easements and other infrastructure to provide bandwidth to the Macomb campus.
The buyer for this procurement is now Bonnie Helms, (309) 298-1819.
The State Purchasing Officer for this procurement is now Tom Sestak.
