Summary: The District has been working with Sentinel for the past four years supporting the Cisco environment and equipment. Sentinel's High Availability Network Support with CISCO Smartnet coverage adds one and two hour response guarantees on major systems that keep the district connected and working. The total cost of this agreement is $142,602. This is a decrease of $3,091 from the 2018-2019 year based solely on the fact that older equipment was replaced with the E-Rate cycle and the cost to cover newer items is cheaper.
Funding: The total cost of $142,602 is allocated in the 2019-2020 technology budget.
Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve the Smartnet/HANS renewal as presented.
