Resolution authorizing a contract with Call One, Chicago, Illinois, for various traditional phone lines for Lake County in an estimated annual amount of $478,500.

 

Staff summary

                     Lake County requires traditional phone lines for various systems and equipment communication in its buildings.

                     Lake County currently has approximately 160 centrex lines, 205 plain old telephone service lines (POTS), 29 low bauds, and three additional circuits with Call One.

                     In accordance with Section 10-101 of the Lake County Purchasing Ordinance, the County Purchasing Division has identified a competitively solicited and awarded cooperative purchasing contract for traditional phone lines awarded to Call One, through the Suburban Purchasing Cooperative joint purchasing contract Number 188.
