Title
Air Card Services With Verizon Wireless For GPD Laptops (B)
 
This item requests City Commission approval of an expenditure for air card services.
 
Explanation
Verizon Wireless provides Gainesville Police Department (GPD) with wireless connection (air cards) for laptops.  GPD has approximately 300 air cards.  The price is $39.99 plus surcharge of $.02 for a total of $40.01 per card per month.  Verizon is the only provider that can give GPD the coverage it needs to function.  The Computer Aided Dispatch/Records Management System program can be displayed on the laptop and the coverage, speed, and connectivity is vital with these programs.  We are requesting using them as a sole source provider for FY 2013 for a total not to exceed $146,000.
 
Fiscal Note
Funding in the amount of $146,000 is available for this service in the Department's Information Technology budget.
 
Recommendation
The City Commission approve the expenditure of $146,000 for air card services for FY2013.
