Paul F. Alexander III, Manatee County Director of Information Technology Services Department/CIO
Adoption of Budget Amendment Resolution B-17-043 transferring funding for purchase of P-25 Radios as planned and adopted within the FY17-21 CIP.
In accordance with the P25 Sarasota/Manatee Contract No. 2015-233 with Airbus DS Communications, Exhibit N offered both Counties an Option providing cost savings incentives for the bulk purchase of subscriber unit radio options for mobile, portable, control stations, and other accessories at a 47% discount rate. In partnership with our Purchasing Department, the terms of this Option were renegotiated resulting in Amendment 1 to the Contract having more favorable terms as follows:
The Project (#GG01437) was adopted within the FY17-21 CIP and was to be funded from two sources.
Funding for the BCC radios comes from an Internal Service Fund for the Technology Refresh of units at end-of-life.
Funding for the Sheriff's radios comes from reserves located within the 2016 General Government Revenue bonds. Availability of bond funding is due to existing projects closing at a savings.
