This is an ARRA purchase and must abide by the ARRA guidelines outlined here.

    This RFP (Request for Proposals) includes seven line items for computer hardware and software.
      Installation shall not be a requirement of the RFP but may be submitted as an option.

    Because this is an equipment only bid, South Pike School District also reserves the right to make partial
      purchases from different vendors that reply to this RFP on price. For example, if one vendor replies
      with the lowest price for one line item and not for another, the district may choose to purchase only
      that item from that vendor and other portions from another vendor with a lower price. Please do not
      bid if this is unacceptable to you.

    South Pike School District reserves the right to adjust the quantity of each line item to accommodate the
       funds available.

    We also reserve to disregard all bids and refuse to make a purchase at our discretion.

Bids must be submitted to the address below via a traceable delivery service, securely sealed, signed, and

         users to digitally sign or encrypt documents.
     Local peripheral support that allows users can insert a USB device locally into the thin client and use it with their virtual desktops and
         applications as they would on a local machine.
     Ability for users to pause desktop sessions and resume working from different locations at exactly the point where they left off.
     Multimedia support that provides users of virtual desktops with a high definition audio-visual experience, comparable to a local PC.
         Support for Media Foundation used by Windows Media Player required.
     Ability for Adobe Flash content to play locally on thin client hardware, providing users with a high definition playback.
     Desktop virtual machines are kept running in idle pools so that new virtual desktops are ready for users when they log on, eliminating the
         lengthy startup times of physical computers and increasing productivity.
     Ability for users to plug in USB-compatible printers to their thin clients.

         physical Windows environments.
     Ability to store virtual desktops and user profiles on the SAN unit specified in this RFP.
     Desktop performance monitoring capability to monitor and track the performance of virtual desktops, allowing administrators to
         proactively manage the virtual desktop experience by measuring key performance elements. This data can then be used to enhance the
         infrastructure before users are adversely affected dynamically.
     Password management to provide single sign-on access regardless of how or where users connect, and it enable users to reset their own
         Windows password or unlock their account.
     Flexible Operating System Delivery - Solution must provide the ability to access virtual machines, as well stream the Operating System to
         physical devices.
     Delivery of host based applications, leveraging the processing power of the server infrastructure. The solution must provide application
         delivery independent of the Operating System to allow use of legacy applications without multiple Operating Systems per user.
     The solution must be scalable to thousands of users, with single Operating Systems deployed in a one-to-many method.
     Users must have a PC like experience over any connection, LAN or WAN.
