1.2           Current Environment

              1.2.1.        General

                            The GCN is currently in the process of creating a non-profit organization that will open the membership to organizations that are
                            aligned with the GCN‟s mission. The GCN has received a community-networking grant from the Texas Infrastructure Fund
                            Board. The GCN plans to use this grant to provide services throughout the Galveston community. These services require a high-
                            speed network infrastructure. The grant covers a twelve (12) month period and ends on April 30, 2003. Additional information
                            about the GCN‟s objectives can be found within the actual grant proposal, which is located at the following web address:


                                                                           http://www.galvestonnet.org


1.3           Scope of Proposal

              The scope of the proposal is to acquire a “strategic partner who will implement and manage a communication network infrastructure
              to support Galveston‟s community network. The GCN has been granted funds, which will allow us to purchase equipment and assist
              in the initial setup cost. Additionally, several of the member organizations would like to transfer telecommunication services to this
              network, and these services will help sustain the network. It is expected that the vendor to seek business outside the community
              network members to further increase the sustainability of the project. Additional partners/businesses must be aproved by the GCN.
              If for any reason the awarded proposer is unable to fulfill its commitments, the GCN network will retain ownership of the
              equipment. Respondents are allowed to offer multiple responses to represent different concepts and technology.

1.4           Statement of Work

              Texas A&M University is soliciting proposals to select a “communication network infrastructure provider” to provide services as specified
              and listed in this proposal for TAMUG and the GCN.

4.1           Evaluation Information

              TAMUG and the GCN will utilize an evaluation team for the evaluation of this RFP. TAMUG and the GCN must be confident that the
              respondent‟s proposal will meet the needs of TAMUG and the GCN. TAMUG and the GCN will evaluate and make the award on the
              proposal that is determined to be the best value to the State and the GCN based on the criteria listed below. TAMUG and the GCN must be
              confident that the respondent‟s communication network infrastructure system will perform and meet their needs.

              All proposals must be complete and convey all of the information requested to be considered responsive. If the proposal fails to conform to
              the essential requirements of the RFP, TAMUG and the GNC alone will determine whether the variance is significant enough to consider
              the proposal susceptible to being made acceptable and therefore a candidate for further consideration, or not susceptible to being made
              acceptable and therefore not considered for award. TAMUG and the GCN shall be the sole judge of the comparative evaluation of the
              proposals received. The award will be based on the basis of the proposal judged to be in the best interest of TAMUG and the GCN and
              TAMUG‟s and the GCN‟s judgment in this regard shall be considered final. Any agreement resulting from this request shall be awarded to
              the proposer providing the “best value” proposal to TAMUG and the GCN. Factors to be considered in determining the best value shall
              include price, goods and services, demonstration/presentation, company experience, past experience, history, and financial condition
              reliability. Responses from proposers that do not demonstrate adequate financial stability may be rejected at the evaluation stage.


              4.1.1         Demonstration/Presentation

                            TAMUG and the GCN may request a demonstration/presentation of proposer(s).              A script will be provided of necessary
                            information and capabilities that are to be demonstrated or presented.

                            The evaluation team may consider the demonstration/presentation in the evaluation criteria.

              Texas A&M University reserves the right to reject any and all proposals.
4.2           Evaluation Criteria and Weights

              Each proposal shall be evaluated on the ability to meet TAMUG‟s and the GCN‟s requirements and to provide the best value to TAMUG
              and the GCN. Proposal shall be evaluated by assigning points to each of the items below. The maximum number of points that can be
              assigned to each item being evaluated are as follows:

              TAMUG and the GCN will utilize an evaluation team for the evaluation of this RFP. The evaluation will include the overall response to the
              RFP and the general requirements defined in the RFP. TAMUG and the GCN may require a demonstration before the award is made.
              TAMUG and the GCN reserves the right to use the demonstration as an additional factor in the award. TAMUG and the GCN will evaluate
              and make the award on the proposal that is determined to be the best value to the State based on the criteria listed below. TAMUG and the
              GCN must be confident that the respondent‟s communication network infrastructure system will perform and meet their needs. Responses
              from proposers that do not demonstrate adequate financial stability may be rejected at the evaluation stage.

              The evaluation will be based on the following system:


                              Price: The full life cycle cost of the project (i.e. – Section 3).                         30%

7.7           Alternative Dispute Resolution

              The dispute resolution process provided for in Chapter 2260 of the Texas Government Code shall be used, as further described herein, by TAMUG,
              the GCN and the Vendor to attempt to resolve any claim for breach of contract made by Vendor:

                     (a) Vendor‟s claim for breach of this contract that the parties cannot resolve in the ordinary course of business shall be submitted to the
                         negotiation process provided in Chapter 2260, subchapter B, of the Texas Government Code. To initiate the process, Vendor shall
                         submit written notice, as required by subchapter B, to Dr. Richard L. Floyd. Said notice shall also be given to all other representatives of
                         TAMUG, the GCN and Vendor otherwise entitled to notice under the parties‟ contact. Compliance by Vendor with subchapter B is a
                         condition precedent to the filing of a contested case proceeding under Chapter 2260, subchapter C, of the Texas Government Code.

                     (b) The contested case process provided in Chapter 2260, subchapter C, of the Texas Government Code is Vendor‟s sole and exclusive
                         process for seeking a remedy for any and all alleged breaches of contract by TAMUG and/or the GCN if the parties are unable to resolve
                         their disputes under subparagraph (A) of this paragraph.

                     (c) Compliance with the contested case process provided in subchapter C is a condition precedent to seeking consent to sue from the
                         Legislature under Ch. 107 of the Civil Practices and Remedies Code. Neither the execution of this contract by TAMUG nor any conduct
                         of any representative of TAMUG and/or the GCN hereafter shall be considered a waiver of sovereign immunity to suit.

              1.     The submission, processing, and resolution of Vendor‟s claim is governed by the published rules as adopted by the Office of the Attorney
                     General of the State of Texas pursuant to Chapter 2260 as currently effective, hereafter enacted or subsequently amended.

              2.     Neither the occurrence of an event nor the pendency of a claim constitutes grounds for the suspension of the performance by Vendor, in whole
                     or in part.

              3.     The designated individual responsible on behalf of TAMUG and/or the GCN for examining any claim or counterclaim and conducting any
                     negotiations related thereto, as required under §2260.052 of the Texas Government Code shall be Dr. Richard Floyd.

In accordance with Senate Bill 178 of the 76th Legislature, and as a good faith effort, Texas A&M University (Texas A&M) and the Department of Purchasing Services
encourage the use of Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) in all purchasing transactions, prime contracts and subcontracts. The goal of the attached HUB
Subcontracting Plan (HSP) is to promote full and equal business opportunities for all businesses in accordance with State of Texas guidelines.
The attached HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) must be completed and returned with your Request for Proposal, Invitation for Bid or Catalogue Offer,
hereafter referred to as solicitation document. Failure to return the HSP with your solicitation document will disqualify your solicitation document response.


A HUB vendor is a corporation, sole proprietorship, partnership or joint venture in which 51 per cent of the shares of stock or other equitable securities are
owned by one or more persons who are members of the following groups: Black American; Native American; Hispanic American; American Women; Asian
Pacific American


A sub-contractor is defined as a party or vendor who provides services and/or materials to a prime contractor, including the distribution of materials required for the
project.


A good faith effort on the vendor’s part includes, but is not limited to, developing a HUB subcontracting plan including the following actions: dividing
contract work into reasonable lots or portions to the extent consistent with prudent industry practices; notifying HUBs in writing of a potential subcontracting
opportunity; contacting minority and women community organizations to inform them of HUB subcontracting opportunities; advertising HUB
subcontracting opportunities in general circulations such as newspapers, magazines, etc., trade association or minority/woman focused media such as
minority and women newspapers and magazines. Evidence of the Vendor’s good faith effort in soliciting HUB subcontracting possibilities must be
documented and included with vendor’s response. Acceptable documentation can be, but is not limited to, phone logs, fax transmissions and newspaper or
magazine ads.


The Texas Building Procurement Commission (TBPC) Commodity class and item codes listed in the solicitation document were used to locate certified HUBs on the
TBPC’s Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL). These vendors are certified by the State of Texas as certified HUB businesses. Vendors from the identified commodity
class and item codes are listed as an attachment to this Solicitation document.

                                               Historically Underutilized Business Subcontracting Plan (HSP)

The attached HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) must be completed and returned with the vendor’s solicitation document response. Failure to return
the HSP will result in the disqualification of vendor’s solicitation document response.

                                                                           Information for Vendors

In accordance with Texas Government Code, sections 2161.181-182 and section 111. 11 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) state agencies shall make a good
faith effort to utilize Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) in procurements for construction, services (including professional and consulting services), and
commodities. The Texas Building and Procurement Commission’s (TBPC) HUB Rules I TAC 111. 111- 111.28, encourage the use of HUBs by implementing
these policies through a Good Faith Effort Program (GFEP). Texas A&M University’s (Texas A&M’s) initiative through the Department of Purchasing Services
is to assist vendors to achieve goals through race, ethnic and gender-neutral means. The purpose of the GFEP is to promote full and equal business opportunities
for all businesses in State procurements. To achieve these goals, it is the policy of Texas A&M University to either contract directly with HUBs or indirectly with
HUBs through subcontracting opportunities in accordance with Texas Government Code, Chapter 2161, Subchapter F and 1 TAC 111. 14.

HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) Procedures

1)     Texas A&M University shall determine if there are probable subcontracting opportunities. Subcontracting opportunities are written contracts between a prime
       contractor/vendor and another contractor for the performance of all or part of the contract being received from the State. If subcontracting opportunities are
       probable, Texas A&M University will state such probability in its solicitation document and require the submission of an HSP. See item number 3 below for more
       details. The HSP, if accepted, will be a provision of the resulting agreement or contract. Texas A&M will identify the potential subcontracting opportunities and
       include a list of the Texas Building and Procurement Commission Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) commodity class codes and items from which the vendors
       can solicit vendors that may be capable of performing the contract opportunities. The list provided is for information only and Texas A&M University does not
       endorse, recommend or attest to the capabilities of any company or individual listed. A complete list of all Texas Building and Procurement Commission certified
       HUBs may be electronically accessed through the Internet at URL http://www.tbpc.state.tx.us/cmbl/cmblhub.html.

2)     To demonstrate a good faith effort, the participating prime contractor must notify HUBs of the work that the contractor intends to subcontract. The preferred
       method of notice shall be in writing and include a quantitative description of the subcontracting opportunity. The notice must be provided to potential subcontractors
       prior to submission of the contractor’s solicitation document. The prime contractor shall provide potential subcontractors a reasonable period of time to respond to
       the contractor's notice. "Reasonable time" is defined as no less than five working days from receipt of the notice, unless circumstances require a different time period.

3)     If Texas A&M determines that subcontracting opportunities are probable, a completed HSP will be required as part of the vendor’s solicitation document response.
       The solicitation document shall be rejected as a material failure to comply with the advertised specifications if the solicitation document does not contain the required
       information listed on the HSP form. If the vendor is not subcontracting any portion of the contract, the HSP form must still be completed and submitted with the
       solicitation document indicating the reason for not using HUB subcontractor(s) and showing documentation where HUB subcontractors were solicited.

4)     No changes shall be made to an accepted subcontracting plan prior to its incorporation into the resulting purchase order. Texas A&M University shall review the
       supporting documentation submitted by the potential contractor/vendor to determine if a good faith effort has been made. Lack of a good faith effort by the vendor,
       as determined by Texas A&M, may result in the disqualification of the vendor’s solicitation document response.

5)     If a potential contractor/vendor has determined that it can perform all the subcontracting opportunities that are probable, a statement of the potential
       contractor's/vendor's intent to complete the work with its own employees and resources without any subcontracting will be submitted with the potential contractor's/
       vendor's solicitation document response. If the potential contractor/vendor is selected and decides to subcontract any part of the contract after the award, the
       contractor/vendor must comply with provisions of items 2 & 3 above relating to developing and submitting a subcontracting plan prior to any modifications or
       performance in the awarded contract. Subcontracting in this case must be authorized by the agency, before proceeding. If the selected contractor/vendor subcontracts
       any of the work without prior authorization and approval of the contract administrator, the contractor/vendor is deemed to have breached the contract and is subject
       to any remedial actions provided by Texas Government Code, Chapter 2161, and 1 TAC 5111.14. Texas A&M University may report non-performance relative to its
       contracts to the commission in accordance with 1 TAC Chapter 113, Subchapter F as it relates to the Vendor Performance and Debarment Program.

6)     The contractor/vendor shall maintain business records documenting its compliance with the approved HSP and shall submit a compliance report to the ordering
       agency in accordance with and in the format required by the contract documents. The contractor/vendor shall report to the agency the identity and the amount paid to
       its subcontractors. Documentation of the contractor's/vendor's efforts for determining whether the value of the subcontract(s) to HUBs meets or exceeds the HUB
       subcontracting provisions specified in the contract shall be maintained by the vendor.

                            of coverage showing coverage for all persons providing services on the project; and

              (2)           No later than seven days after receipt by the contractor, a new certificate of coverage showing extension of coverage, if the

(H)           The contractor shall post on each project site a notice, in the text, form and manner prescribed by the Texas Workers' Compensation
              Commission, informing all persons providing services on the project that they are required to be covered, and stating how a person may
              verify coverage and report lack of coverage.

(I)           The contractor shall contractually require each person with whom it contracts to provide services on a project, to:

              (1)           Provide coverage, based on proper reporting of classification codes and payroll amounts and filing of any coverage agreements,
                            which meets the statutory requirements of Texas Labor Code, Title 5, for all of its employees providing services on the project, for
                            the duration of the project;

              (2)           Provide to the contractor, prior to that person beginning work on the project, a certificate of coverage showing that coverage is
                            being provided for all employees of the person providing services on the project, for the duration of the project;

              (3)           Provide the contractor, prior to the end of the coverage period, a new certificate of coverage showing extension of coverage, if the
                            coverage period shown on the current certificate of coverage ends during the duration of the project;

              (4)           Obtain from each other person with whom it contracts, and provide to the contractor:

                            (a)      A certificate of coverage, prior to the other person beginning work on the project; and

                            (b)      A new certificate of coverage showing extension of coverage, prior to the end of the coverage period, if the coverage
                                     period shown on the current certificate of coverage ends during the duration of the project;

              (5)           Retain all required certificates of coverage on file for the duration of the project and for one year thereafter;

              (6)           Notify the governmental entity in writing by certified mail or personal delivery, within 10 days after the person knew or should
                            have known, of any change that materially affects the provision of coverage of any person providing services on the project; and

              (7)           Contractually require each person with whom it contracts, to perform as required by Paragraphs (1)-(7), with the certificates of
                            coverage to be provided to the person for whom they are providing services.

(J)           By signing this contract or providing or causing to be provided a certificate of coverage, the contractor is representing to the governmental
              entity that all employees of the contractor who will provide services on the project will be covered by workers' compensation coverage for
              the duration of the project, that the coverage will be based on proper reporting of classification codes and payroll amounts, and that all
              coverage agreements will be filed with the appropriate insurance carrier or, in the case of a self-insured, with the Commission's Division of
              Self-Insurance Regulation. Providing false or misleading information may subject the contractor to administrative penalties, criminal
              penalties, civil penalties, or other civil actions.

(K)           The contractor's failure to comply with any of these provisions is a breach of contract by the contractor which entitles the governmental
              entity to declare the contract void if the contractor does not remedy the breach within ten days after receipt of notice of breach from the
              governmental entity.
