IFCB Requirements :

·         All Questions and Bids must be submitted using the on-line IFCB system. If for some reason the system is down before the respective deadline, please email your bid to info@crwconsulting.com or fax it to 918.445.0049. Bids or questions submitted in this fashion will be disqualified if the on-line system is active at the time of submission.

 

·         Bidder must agree to participate in USF Program (AKA “E-rate”) for the corresponding funding year.

 

·         Please include the correct Service Provider Identification Number (SPIN) on your bid.

 

·         By submitting a bid, bidder certifies that the bidder does have a valid (non-red light status) SPIN for the E-rate program at the time of submission. Should the Applicant discover that the bidder is on red light status, or if the FCC classifies the bidder as on red-light status before work is performed and invoices are paid, the contract will be null and void and the applicant will have no payment obligations to the bidder.

 

·         Bidder is expected to provide the lowest corresponding price per E-rate rules.  See https://www.usac.org/e-rate/service-providers/step-2-responding-to-bids/lowest-corresponding-price/ for details.

·         All applicable fees, surcharges, and taxes must be identified on the bid. E-rate rules require the applicants to evaluate the price of eligible goods and services that will be listed on the 471 application during the competitive bidding process. Fees and surcharges that apply but are not listed on the bid will be the responsibility of the bidding company, should their bid be awarded.

Questions Received with Applicant Answers   ( Ask Questions? )




Q1 Will the UPS need to be rack-mount or tower configuration? Q2 Is pure sine waveform output required for any servers or devices requiring pure sine waveform output on battery mode (Y/N)?

Answer:

Q1: yes the ups are rack mounted. Q2: no pure sine waveform is not required.

--What size, 24/48-port & PoE, and how many switches will be plugged into the UPS? --Are the UPS units going into floor mount enclosed cabinets? -- Are the UPS units going into floor mount 2-post or 4-post open frame racks? -- Are the UPS units going into wall mount enclosed cabinets? If so, what size of cabinet? -- Are the UPS units going into wall mount open frame racks? If so, what size of rack? --Do you need a network card in each UPS?

Answer:

On the racks they are all wall mount open frame 2 points switch mounts. The UNIFI 48 POE switches we use are the one in the link below. All size and dimensions for the switch are on the item descriptions. The racks are already mounted and have open slots available.  The UPS are for the same size dimensions as the UNIF POE 48 switches.
