Body

SUMMARY:

 

City operating departments facilitate mobile services and field data collection with the use of mobile computing devices (phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) and wireless data connections (air cards) and cellular phones.

 

All mobile/wireless services are aggregated and billed through the Information Technology Department. Verizon is being selected off of State contract for its quality of coverage and reliability within our service area.

 

This award in the amount of $225,000.00 will be broken down as follows:

$125,000.00:  Cellular / smart phones

$100,000.00:  data cards for departments including Police Department’s patrol vehicles.

 

The City currently has 698 cellular/smart phones in use and approximately 637 cellular data cards (280 for police patrol units).

 

This is a piggyback off the State of Florida Department of Management Services Contract DMS-10/11-008C which is set to expire on 1/19/2022.
