Q:  RFP 2019-110 - Good Morning! I hope this email finds you well. In preparing for the site walk for tomorrow, we are wondering if you have a map handy that you can send prior to tomorrow's walk?

A:  I updated our erate website to include a location map for the network cabling. I'll also be including an IDF/MDF location map the morning of the walk through.

Q:  RFP 2019-110 - Unfortunately, we missed the job walk today.  In looking at the RFP I don’t see “mandatory” noted on the job walk information though.  So, with that I’m hoping we can still bid on the project?  Is there a drawing for the sites that can be provided showing the information needed to quote the project (copper and fiber locations, copper and fiber counts, pathways, etc.)? 

A:  You are welcome to still submit a bid on the project. I linked a campus map of the desired cabling locations below under "Additional Documents". This map shows the classrooms and the amount of copper network cabling drops for each room. For this project we are looking to just replace existing Cat5(e) cabling with new Cat6 cabling. Fiber is not included in the project. The IDF locations for the Media Center (Building B) and K7 are located within those rooms. The J Building IDF is located in J1 just two rooms down from the desired J3 room. One final note, K7 has existing in floor conduit for network and electrical cabling. We are requesting to add 8 in floor boxes (placed directly next to the existing in floor conduit) that can accommodate 4 single gang plates. As the network cabling contractor, you will only be responsible for terminating the network cabling and not the electrical wiring in the floor boxes. The subfloor material is concrete. 

Q:  RFP 2019-100 - STAR Academy & PACT both have the same address; 4004 Gloster Way, Sac.   Does each location have it’s own MPOE?  Or is there fiber between the two buildings?   We are assuming based on the way the RFP is written they  have their own MPOE & are requiring a separate Ethernet connect each

A:  Our plan is to relocate the PACT Academy to a new (to be constructed) building on the same campus location as Star Academy located at 4004 Gloster Way. The Star Academy school site features the MPOE. The new PACT building will be connected via campus fiber to Star's MPOE/MDF room.
