I reviewing the RFP, you indicate bringing connectivity from all sites to four established DMARC’s. Is there a reason for all sites not terminating at the technology center? If we propose point to point circuits from schools back to Tech Center, would this be allowed? All sites must terminate back to the school board office. The 4 DMARCs are located at the school board office. On the price sheet for WAN, you have the school board office listed 4 times. If you allow PTP circuits, Detel would price 22 sites. Twenty one schools and the school board office. Would this be correct? The school board office is listed 4 times to split the traffic coming from/going to the schools. Instead of the circuits from the other sites all coming in to one circuit, they should be quoted to come in separately as noted on the Wide Area Network Cost Sheet under each circuit. If you need any further clarification, please call 985-785-3126.
