                   QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

                   1. Total number of host servers that will be on the Fibre channel fabric (SAN Fabric)? Please
                   include make, model, and number of processors, Operating System and applications running on
                   each host server.

                           Answer: The planned beginning host will be an HP DL380/G4 Hi-
                           Performance server. This will be a consolidation of Police_101\D$,
                           POLICESRV11\E$, POLICESRV17\E$,POLICESRV25\E$, and POLICESRV19.
                           These are all File servers, 11 and 25 are Users files, 17 and 19 serve pdf
                           images connected through an Oracle database. Other servers may be
                           added at a later date as new applications are adopted. The Police Dept.
                           wireless application server uses MS-SQL and is a candidate for SAN
                           storage in the future. Some or all of our Oracle/UNIX applications may be
                           migrated to SAN storage as well. We suggest you provide separate pricing
                           for HBA's, software licensing and any other costs associated with adding
                           servers. This will be needed to utilize any resulting contract for expansion.
                           See the attached listing of TPD’s server inventory for further information.
                   2. Amount of storage required for each server including anticipated # of LUNs for each server?

                           Answer: See the attached listing of TPD’s server inventory for further
                           information. We currently back up approximately 800 GB for
                           POLICESRV11\E$ and POLICESRV25. POLIESRV17\E$ is full. Assume the
                           others are full as well.
                   3. Backup-Does the current Dell PV132T have a Fibre Channel to SCSI bridge included?

                           Answer: Doubtful,    FNFQK31
                   If unsure, please send us the service tag number and we will determine. If not, do you plan to
                   backup over fibre channel or over Ethernet? On page 25 of the IFB, it is not clear to me under
                   "Backup Requirements" if you require backup over Fibre Channel or over Ethernet.

                           Answer: We did not specify. FC is preferred. We are looking for proposals. If in
                           doubt provide pricing for both options, if we can convert to FC, we will.

                   Do your current Veritas 9 licenses include SAN Option?

                           Answer: No

                   If possible, please list the Veritas licenses you currently possess including SSO, LEO, etc.

                           Answer:
                           1         WIN SVRS, # S110048-OLEV14
                           10        Remote Agent CAL, # S111148-OLEV18

      Invitation For Bid (IFB) #TAC736A
                                                                                     City of Tulsa,
                     Description: SAN                                                 Oklahoma
Issued: August 29, 2005; Addendum #3 dated 9-26-2005                                      2 of 40

           1        Library Expansion Option, # S110238-OLEV18
           1        SQL Server, # S110288-OLEV18

   4. In your section Requirements: Products: Backup Requirements you require "..a complete
   backup and restore solution, including all hardware, software, cabling and necessary licensing...."
   and "...the proposed backup solution shall include all components necessary for interfacing
   backup storage to the SAN or backup servers...."

           Answer: See the attached listing of TPD’s server inventory for further
           information. Three approaches come to mind:
           - Bid a separate back-up solution for the SAN, leaving DAS for the existing
             back-up server
           - Bid a replacement solution that will back-up SAN and DAS
           - Utilize the existing Dell solution for the SAN and DAS with required
             upgrades to hardware and/or software, if any.

           We have intentionally left this for the vendor to propose. Multiple proposals
           will be evaluated separately and the optimal solution selected.

   Can you outline the number and type of processors and servers to be
   backed up?

           Answer: See Appendix B

   5. How many of those processors support database servers?

           Answer: None currently. The wireless application server with MS-SQL
           referred to earlier

   6. Regarding the Backup solution, what is the total number of servers to be backed up?

           Answer: See Appendix B

   7. Regarding Backup solution, what is the total storage space that will be backed up?

           Answer: TPD currently backs up in excess of 800GB of DAS. Most of this
           will go into the SAN. Please refer to our responses to other vendor's similar
           questions for further information.

   8. Regarding Backup solution, how many Oracle and/or SQL applications are there to
   be backed up?

           Answer: None currently, MS-SQL and Oracle are candidates for future
           expansion. See our Objectives for more information on this subject.

   9. Regarding Backup solution, if the current Dell PV 132T is attached via SCSI is the
   City of Tulsa Police Dept. planning or willing to convert to Fiber?

           Answer: The City is willing to do this conversion if cost is reasonable.
           Please refer to question #5 on this subject.


   The City of Tulsa Police Dept. requires availability of spare parts for a period of five (5) years from
                      Invitation For Bid (IFB) #TAC736A
                                                                                                   City of Tulsa,
                                    Description: SAN                                                Oklahoma
                Issued: August 29, 2005; Addendum #3 dated 9-26-2005                                   3 of 40

                   date of purchase. Further, shipment of parts must be made within five (5) business hours of
                   receipt of order when overnight air shipment is specified by the City. If new replacement parts are
                   not available from vendor stock, an acceptable refurbished or other temporary solution must be
                   proposed, or a third party vendor be located and referred. Our objective is to make sure system
                   down time for any hardware failure does not exceed twenty-four hours. If an extended warranty is
                   required to meet this goal then vendors must specify this in their bid response. Vendors should
                   state their standard policies with regard to the supply of spares and replacement parts, and
                   include an explanation of how they will meet this requirement.

      1.         Purchase and Sale. Seller agrees to sell City the Goods and/or Services set forth in Seller’s Delivery and Pricing Form submitted with
                 Seller’s response to City’s Invitation For Bid and incorporated herein (“Seller’s Offer”). City agrees to pay Seller the price and amount in

      2.         Irrevocable Offer. Seller understands and acknowledges that its signature on this Agreement constitutes an irrevocable offer to provide the

                 documents comprising the Invitation for Bid, and third according to additional attachments submitted by Seller.

      4.         Term. The term of this Agreement shall be effective commencing on the date of execution by the Mayor of the City of Tulsa, and continuing to

                 promptly correct, repair or replace the same at Seller’s sole expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such Goods and/or Services shall be
                 determined by City to be defective or non-conforming within the first thirty (30) days after the date of acceptance by City, then City at its option
                 shall be entitled to a complete refund of the purchase price and, in the case of Goods, shall promptly return such Goods to Seller. Seller shall

8.    Intentionally left blank

9.    Indemnification by Seller. Seller agrees to indemnify, defend, and save harmless City and its officers, employees and agents from all suits
      and actions of every nature brought against them due to the use of patented appliances, products or processes provided by Seller hereunder.
      Seller shall pay all royalties and charges incident to such patents.

10.   No Insurance by City. If City is leasing Goods herein, City shall not be required to obtain insurance for Seller’s property. Seller shall be
      solely responsible for any insurance it deems necessary. City is self-insured for its own negligence, subject to the limits of the Governmental
      Tort Claims Act (51 O.S. § 151 et seq.).

11.   No Confidentiality. Seller understands and acknowledges that City is subject to the Oklahoma Open Records Act (51 O.S. §24.1 et seq.) and
      therefore cannot assure the confidentiality of contract terms or other information provided by Seller pursuant to this Agreement that would be
      inconsistent with City’s compliance with its statutory requirements thereunder.

12.   Non-Responsive Bids. Seller understands and acknowledges that if it adds terms and conditions to its Offer that are contrary to the terms set
      forth herein that the bid may be rejected as non-responsive. Furthermore, if City accepts Seller’s Offer and awards a contract herein, City shall
      not be bound to any exceptions, changes or additions made by Seller, and any conflicting terms and conditions added by Seller will be void
      and of no force and effect because the parties will be governed according to the document precedence set forth above.


13.   Compliance With Laws. Seller shall take the necessary actions to ensure its facilities and employment practices are in compliance with the
      requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Seller is responsible for any costs of such compliance. Seller shall be responsible for
      complying with all applicable federal, state and local laws.

14.   Termination. City, by written notice, may terminate this Agreement, in whole or in part, when such action is in the best interest of City. If this
      Agreement is so terminated, City shall be liable only for payment for Goods accepted and Services rendered prior to the effective date of
      termination.

15.   Price Changes. The parties understand and agree that the variables in Seller’s cost of performance may fluctuate, but any change in Seller’s
      cost of performance will not alter its obligations under this Agreement, nor excuse performance or delay on Seller’s part. If City offers a price
      escalation/de-escalation clause in its Invitation for Sealed Bid, Seller may be able to revise the prices for its Goods and/or Services pursuant
      to the terms of that provision, but City will consider those terms when determining the bid award.

16.   Right to Audit. The parties agree that books, records, documents, accounting procedures, practices, price lists or any other items related to
      the Goods and/or Services provided hereunder are subject to inspection, examination, and copying by City or its designees. Seller is required
      to retain all records related to this Agreement for the duration of the contract term and a period of three years following completion and/or
      termination of the contract. If an audit, litigation or other action involving such records begins before the end of the three year period, the
      records shall be maintained for three years from the date that all issues arising out of the action are resolved or until the end of the three year
      retention period, whichever is later.

17.   Severability Provision. If any term or provision herein is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement will not
      be affected thereby. It is the intention of the parties that if any provision is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, there will be added in
      lieu thereof a provision as similar in terms to such provision as is possible to be legal, valid and enforceable.

18.   Governing Law And Venue. This Agreement is executed in and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State
      of Oklahoma without regard to its choice of law principles, which shall be the forum for any lawsuits arising under this Agreement or incident
      thereto. The parties stipulate that venue is proper in a court of competent jurisdiction in Tulsa County, Oklahoma and each party waives any
      objection to such venue. City will not agree to binding arbitration of any disputes.

19.   No Waiver. A waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute or operate as a waiver of any other provision, nor
      shall any failure to enforce any provision hereof operate as a waiver of the enforcement of such provision or any other provision.

20.   Entire Agreement/No Assignment. This Agreement and any documents incorporated herein constitute the entire agreement of the parties
      and supersede any and all prior agreements, oral or otherwise. This Agreement may only be modified or amended in writing and signed by
      both parties. Seller may not assign this Agreement without City’s prior written consent. Seller shall not be entitled to any claim for extras of
      any kind or nature.

21.   The undersigned individual states that s/he has authority to bind Seller to this Agreement, that s/he has read and understands the
      terms of this Agreement, and that Seller agrees to be bound by this Agreement and its incorporated documents and Seller’s Offer.

                                            TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS


Objectives
The City of Tulsa Police Department is accepting bids to implement a storage area network (SAN) and backup solution for their
Windows based servers. This project has three goals, one immediate, and two planned as possible expansion. Any proposed
solution that is offered in response to this bid request must be capable of meeting each of these goals. These three objectives
are as follows:

Replacement of existing Direct Attached Storage on Windows Servers (Immediate)
The Tulsa Police Department currently operates 23 Windows-based servers. Initially four of these servers are targeted for
migration to SAN storage and consolidation into one remaining server. and scheduled replacement date. TPD currently plans
to consolidate all of the devices targeted for replacement into one server. By consolidating storage into a single location and
consolidating these four servers into one we expect to increase the availability and reliability of our storage systems while
lowering our personnel needs for administration. We also expect to improve our ability to accommodate future growth by
adding storage instead of complete server systems.

More detailed information on our current environment, including server inventory and file system statistics are available at
vendor request.

Storage of Oracle databases in the SAN (2-5 years)
TPD operates a Records Management System (RMS) developed by TPD over the last 30 years. This application utilizes an
Oracle database (ver 9.2.0.4) that is accessed through applications developed with Oracle development tools and uses a
browser-based client. Storage for this application system is a mixture of database tables and flat files. The hardware operating
this application is IBM running AIX 5L (ver 5.2.0.0). This application consists of a production version and a shadow or mirror
data set used for development. The total storage used by both systems is approximately 70GB. The database tables use
approximately 37GB of that total storage. TPD would like to provide the capacity for this application in this purchase.
Specifically controllers and switches should be able to accommodate this application. The department may choose to defer
purchase of the disks and the cabinets to house them until implementation.

Remote Long Distance Storage of the local SAN data for Disaster Recovery Purposes (2-5 years)

The Tulsa Police Department is interested in implementing a remote disaster recovery site to make all department storage
quickly recoverable in the event of a catastrophic natural disaster. We have engaged in preliminary discussions with a nearby
city concerning a reciprocity agreement to house each city’s remote storage site. The SAN submitted with this bid should be
capable of being extended to perform long distance replication (over TCP/IP) up to 150 miles.

                         Issued: August 29, 2005; Addendum #3 dated 9-26-2005                                                        29 of 40

Current Environment
The City of Tulsa Police Department employs approximately 750 commissioned police officers and 150 civilian, or non-commissioned personnel
operating in approximately 14 locations scattered throughout the City of Tulsa. The Department operates approximately 450 desktop computers,
50-60 non-ruggedized laptops, 650 ruggedized laptops in patrol cars, and 23 Windows based servers. The desktop computers are all operating
with Windows 2000 Professional. The ruggedized laptops use the Windows 98 OS and the remaining laptops use a variety of Windows from 98
through XP Professional. The servers use Windows NT 4.0 for Domain controllers and Windows 2000 and 2003 for member servers. The Police
Department is participating in a citywide initiative to implement an Active Directory infrastructure. Under the current plan the Police Department will
be an Organizational Unit in the forest. All desktop and server systems are networked with TCP/IP networking through Foundry switches,
generally at 100 Mb/s to the desktops and 1Gb/s between the core switches. Most of these systems are less than five years old, the Department
replaces 20-25% of its inventory each year.

Backups are currently performed to a Dell Power Vault 132T LTO2 tape library with two tape drives and capacity for
24 cartridges (currently 20 data and 4 cleaning). Backup software is Veritas Backup Exec. Version 9.0.

Evaluation of Responses
The Tulsa Police Department is interested in the most cost-effective solution that meets all requirements outlined in the specifications. Bids
must be compatible with the Tulsa Police Department technical environment, and meet the performance needs of all Tulsa Police Department
services and applications. To evaluate the various vendors’ responses this bid will utilize a scoring system. Scores will be assigned in seven
areas:

Suitability of product to the applications                                       (3,500 points)
Suitability of the management and support software                               (3,500 points)
Quality and usability of the product documentation                               (2,000 points)
Training                                                                         (1,000 points)
Professional services                                                            (2,000 points)
Maintenance and support                                                          (2,000 points)
References                                                                       (1,000 points)

A review team from the Police Department will review each bid for conformance to required components of the specification. Any bids not
meeting any of the requirements will be disqualified from further evaluation. The review team will then examine each remaining bid and select
the components and services to be purchased based on the available budget for this project. In the third step each of the areas specified will
be evaluated and points awarded based on the merit of the bid and its fit with the department’s objectives and environment. The evaluation
team will provide documentation for reasons points were added or subtracted to each bid. The team anticipates it will need to contact sales or
engineering staff of the bidder’s organization for clarification or explanation of features and documentation. The evaluation team will use as
source information documentation on products and services provided with the bid, references provided with the bid, information from the
bidder’s web site, and interviews with the bidder’s staff. Award of this project will be made to the bidder meeting all requirements and having
the lowest dollar cost per point at the end of the evaluation. While this process is subjective, it provides for giving credit for greater
functionality to bidders that may offer a higher cost solution with more features and benefits. Similarly, vendors with a lower cost for equivalent
features and functions will have an advantage.

Should the Police Department elect to decline award of a particular category, such as training or professional services, the points for that
category will be removed form the pool and no vendor will be evaluated on that component or category.
