The Upper St. Clair School District is issuing the attached (see below) Request for Proposal for the installation of CAT6A cabling in order to install access points in its three elementary school buildings. All together there are 282 CAT6A cabling drops to be installed and 141 access points to be mounted and installed. This procurement does NOT include the purchase of the access points, which is being done as a separate procurement through the PEPPM master contract. This is an E-rate procurement and an accompany FCC Form 470 was posted today, a copy of which is below.
The District anticipates that Vendors will need to participate in a site walkthrough of the schools to measure the amount of cabling needed for the project and to assess the existing building infrastructure and to submit an accurate price proposal.

The walkthrough for the Eisenhower School will be held on February 6, 2017 at 3:15 PM. All interested Vendors who plan to attend the walkthroughs are required to notify Ray Berrott by 4 p.m.on February 1, 2017, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested bidders are required to attend in order to be qualified to submit a Proposal.
