TRANSMITTAL LETTER FOR BOARD MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 20, 2018

 

COMMITTEE ON PROCUREMENT

 

Mr. John P. Murray, Acting Executive Director

 

Title

Issue purchase order to CDW Government LLC, to Furnish and Deliver Symantec Antivirus Licenses and Maintenance, in an amount not to exceed $15,557.00, Account 101-27000-612820, Requisition 1498574

Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

Authorization is requested to issue a purchase order to CDW Government LLC to furnish and deliver Symantec Antivirus licenses and maintenance for a one-year period.  The term of coverage for the Symantec license renewal is from October 25, 2018 through October 24, 2019.

 

Symantec software is used by the District as the anti-virus solution for PCs and servers.

 

On February 22, 2012, The County of Cook advertised a Request for Proposal (RFP) for “13-28-026 -Computer Hardware, Software and Services” in collaboration with the City of Chicago.  Multiple responses were received by the proposal due date of April 6, 2012.  CDW Government LLC was awarded the three-year contract effective May 15, 2013, with an option to extend the contract for two additional one-year terms.  On May 10, 2017 the Cook County Board met and the contract was extended a second time to May 14, 2018. On June 5, 2018 the Cook County Chief Procurement Officer extended the contract to May 14, 2019.  Article 10) General Conditions, Section j) “Governmental Joint Purchasing Agreement,” allows other government agencies to purchase goods or services under this contract.

 

CDW Government LLC has submitted prices for the Symantec Antivirus licenses and maintenance for a one-year period per the established contract discount percentages.  Inasmuch as CDW Government LLC is the only source of supply for the Symantec Antivirus licenses and maintenance, said purchase order may be issued without competitive bidding pursuant to Section 11.4 of the Purchasing Act.

 

CDW Government LLC is registered and in good standing with the State of Illinois.

 

The Multi-Project Labor Agreement is not applicable to this contract because it is primarily a furnish and deliver contract.

 

In view of the foregoing, it is requested that the Director of Procurement and Materials Management be authorized to issue said purchase order to CDW Government LLC in an amount not to exceed $15,557.00.

 

Funds are available in Account 101-27000-612820.

 

Requested, John Sudduth, Director of Information Technology, JS:SK:vn

Recommended, Darlene A. LoCascio, Director of Procurement and Materials Management

Respectfully Submitted, Barbara J. McGowan, Chairman Committee on Procurement
