No numerical MWBE goals were established for this project, but proposers were encouraged to achieve the highest possible MWBE participation and were allotted a maximum of 10 points in the evaluation criteria if the firm submitted the participation of a combination of prime and sub-contractors. Proposers submitting less than the highest participation were then scored on a prorated scale based on the submitted percentage of participation compared to the highest percentage submitted. The recommended proposer provided MBE participation of 20.9% using Drops Mobile Electronics.

This contract was originally awarded by Council on September 29, 2016. This is the second year of a five-year contract. The contract term will be from March 15, 2018 through March 14, 2019.
