Questions and Answers

OETC-20R-01 Q&A 
QuestionAnswer
Does the Form 470 request NEW equipment, or an expansion of existing WAP environment?It is anticipated that both scenarios will be encountered as part of our member's needs.
Does the form 470 request a fully managed, cloud-based solution? Cloud-based solutions are eligible and can be provided. However, on-premise solutions are also eligible and can be provided.
In Group 3: Content Distribution in the RFP, the Caching Server is identified as being mandatory for the vendor response. Can the responding vendor reply to the firewall portions of the Group 3 category and not respond to the Caching Server portion of the category? Example, the responding vendor may offer many options for firewalls but not currently offering caching servers which stores local copies of web pages and objects serving them to Internet users such as Cachebox or Spiceworks.Yes, a vendor may respond only to the firewall portion and elect not to respond to the Caching Server portion.
If responding to the caching Server requirement is mandatory, can the responding vendor reply with a hardware-only response (computers and servers meeting specifications), leaving the educational institution to install the caching software solution of their choice?
