Planned Information Technology Projects

It is our goal that vendors can reference this list of projects to determine if their products and/or services may be applicable to the District’s technology needs. If your company can provide the products or services we have listed, then please activate a DemandStar account at www.demandstar.com. The District currently lists all competitive solicitations on DemandStar.

Other areas of technology services and support, such as telecommunication services, may be not listed below because existing multi-year contracts are in place.

The information shown below does not represent a comprehensive list of ALL technology-related needs, but highlights common products/services. We will update our projects list regularly as changes occur.
