December 7, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting
Motion to Award Sole Source Procurement of Six Channel Expansion and Management Software to Motorola Solutions, Inc. (Event No. 5674)

Recommend approval to procure six radio channels and management software from Motorola Solutions in the amount of $1,032,376.33. The channels will be added to the existing 18-channel public safety/public works radio network. The City and County jointly operate a Motorola Astro 25 18-Channel Digital Simulcast Radio Network to support all government operations in Savannah and Chatham County. As such, the costs for this expansion are split evenly between the City of Savannah and Chatham County. The cost to each entity is $516,188.17.

This is a sole source because Motorola Solutions is the sole manufacturer of the Astro 25 line of radio equipment and software, which is required to integrate with the existing Motorola Astro 25 radio network. The software is proprietary to Motorola Solutions, Inc. and is only supported by that vendor.
