  1. Hello Thomas,

    I would like to know if you can share which Antivirus Products your School Districts are asking for the most and which ones you already have under contract? Please.

    Thank you very much.


    1. We currently have McAfee, Sophos and Microsoft’s solution under contract. Other than those, the most requested are Panda, Lightspeed, Kaspersky, and Symantec.

  2. 1. Page 5, Section C. Offer Submission and Format does not correlate to page 11, V. RFP Evaluation. Which tab should we include Level of Experience and Membership Experience in?

    2. On page 10, section E. Estimated Fulfillment Volume, it states that “based on purchasing history the estimated volume is $500,000.00.” What is this number based on? Which manufacturers are included in this number?
