        and exercise control over the enterprise, commensurate with their degree of ownership.


     2. Where individuals are not actively in the management and daily business operations and do
        not exercise control over the enterprise commensurate with their degree of ownership, equity
        ownership may not be claimed.

                         CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY

1.    Requirements




1.1   Introduction

      A Request for Proposal (RFP VOIP 001) stipulates the requirements for a complete
      Voice and Data infrastructure, for the ‘South African Civil Aviation Authority’, situated in
      two buildings at, Treur Close, Waterfall Park, Bekker Street, Midrand.

      The ‘South African Civil Aviation Authority’, has identified the need to capacitate its voice
      and data platforms to provide high quality, one to one interactions with its most significant
      asset, its clients. The opportunity has arisen to enhance customer expectations through
      a “One-Stop Shop” and at the same time enhance productivity and effectively control and
      manage call and workflow at reasonable operational cost to the authority.

      We, visualize an integrated solution between the voice and data backbone, serving, both
      buildings, “Ikhaya Londiza” and “Kernwick”. Due to the physical locality of the two
      buildings, we envisage that the later be serviced through a ‘remote unit’, that will provide
      all facilities as if the end user was connected to the main system, that is to be situated at
      “Ikhaya Londiza”.

      To enable this, this tender has been formulated so that tenderers may propose and
      submit a comprehensive Structured Cabling Solution to enable the Data and
      Telecommunications infrastructure (cables, faceplates, patch panels, outlets and frames,
      etc) necessary to build a uniform premises distribution system, which will function for a
      multi-media telecommunications solution to meet and exceed 1,000 megabits.

      The solution should also define a method of flexible patching for the
      ICT services to enable simple Moves, Adds & Changes, without
      Rewiring of locations and re-training of staff and to provide easy to follow trouble
      Shooting steps and procedures.

      The “Ikhaya Lokundiza” premises has been cabled in accordance to and approved by
      “Krone” structured cabling methodology.

      This tender is an extension of the Tender VOIP 001 already issued. The two should be
      read together to get an understanding of the complete installation. This however does not
      mean that the two tenders are going to be issued to same vendor. The CAA reserves the
      right to issue this tender to one or more vendors as it deems fit, without jeopardising the
      solution.




                                                                                             19 of 56

2.   The Envisaged Solution
2.   The Envisaged Solution

     The ‘South African Civil Aviation Authority’, has identified the need to upgrade its voice
     and data platforms to provide high quality, one to one interactions with its most significant
     asset, its clients. The opportunity has arisen to enhance customer expectations through
     a “One-Stop Shop” and at the same time enhance productivity and effectively control and
     manage call and workflow at reasonable operational cost to the authority.

     The “CAA” has already issued a tender “VOIP 001”, and is presently evaluating the
     responses, for the delivery of voice and data solution to its needs, utilising Voice over IP
     technology.

     To facilitate this solution in the new building, Kernick House in the same business park, a
     cable infrastructure is required that will

          Provide for easy installation, minimizing the installation time-frame
          Be a robust system for various environments and applications
          Provide a user-friendly environment with less technical support and lower
          maintenance cost.
          Allow space for service providers and active equipment and future expansion
          Have an easy performance upgrade.

     We contemplate a cable network infrastructure that will be based on two distinct
     technologies, CAT 3 and CAT 6E, that will merge at various points and thus provide the
     requirements as identified above.

      The Cat 6E infrastructure is required for a ‘LAN’ and voice type operation to offices of
     the organisation that will be located at various levels.

     We propose a ‘Fibre Optic’ backbone, Vertical Plane and between the two buildings,
     “Truer Close” and “Kernick House”, of a minimum capacity, exceed 1,000 megabits
     speed that will feed various ‘switches’ and in return to various patch-panels, that will feed
     CAT 6E interconnecting cables to the ‘end-points connections’ on different floors.

     The Cat 3 infrastructure is required for specialised telephony operation, such as faxes
     and modems. We propose that in the vertical plane cables of sufficient capacity, and with
     a built in expansion capability of 25 percent, be provided to each floor for this use.

     An interconnecting patch panel is to be provided at the ‘IT’ room for the purposes of
     connecting the PABX up to the cable network.

     The merger of two technologies occurs on the floor level, at the patch panel, where one
     of the points provided for in the offices, that is CAT 6E and conforms to all CAT 6E
     specifications, is extended from the patch-panel with a special ‘Patch-Lead’, called Type
     2 in the specification, to the CAT 3 part of the patch panel. This allows the use of the 4
     pairs for normal analogue telephony usage without ‘down-grading’ the CAT 6E
     capabilities of the cables.

     This Type 2 Patch-Lead’, terminates on the one side with a RJ45 type connector, and
     from it the tow sets of two pairs must be terminated in a RJ 45 independently.


                                                                                           26 of 56

iv.     Test methods

In order to determine compliance of the access floor system with the Load Performance
Table the following test methods and procedures shall be followed:

v.      Concentrated load test:

The panel, without surface covering, is to be supported by the specified pedestal heads
(and stringers, if applicable). Pedestal heads are to be mounted on rigid blocks to
eliminate distortion of results, which may occur from the isolated use of pedestal base
assemblies in the test fixture. The blocks are to rest on a solid test bed.

Loads are to be applied to the top surface of the panel by a hydraulic cylinder and
measured by a calibrated Force Ring. The loads are to be transmitted to the panel
surface by a 25 mm x 25 mm steel contact area indenter. The panel is to be loaded at the
centre; then at the mid-span of the edge; then at the thinnest section of a quarter
quadrants.

The resultant permanent sets are to be measured from the top surface of the panel by a
dial indicator positioned on the top of the indenter, which is located directly below the
Force Ring.
The panel is to be first loaded to the design load to settle the system. After unloading, a
pre-load of 0, 25 KN is to be applied and both the Force Ring and the dial indicator are to
be set at zero. The panel is then to be loaded in 0, 50 KN increments to the design load
and the deflection readings are to be taken incrementally. The load is then to be removed
from the panel and the 0, 25 KN pre-load is to be reapplied to measure the set on the dial
indicator. Deflection shall be recorded at the start and during the last hour of load
application. Permanent set shall be measured as set out above.

vi.     Uniform load test:

The panel, without surface covering, is to be supported by the specified pedestal heads
(and stringers, if applicable). Pedestal heads are to be mounted on rigid blocks to
eliminate distortion of results, which may occur from the isolated use of pedestal base
assemblies in the test fixture. The blocks are to rest on a solid test bed.
The load is to be applied to the panel by a hydraulic cylinder and spread uniformly over
the top of the panel. The surface pressure is to be measured by a water manometer
                       2
calibrated in 2, 5 kN/m increments.

Dial indicators are to be positioned on the underside of the panel to measure deflections
under load at the center; at the mid-span of the edge; and at the weakest point of a
quarter quadrants.

The panel is to be first loaded to the design load to settle the system. After removing the
load, a pre-load of 0, 25 KN is to be applied and the dial indicators are then to be set at
zero. The panel is then to be loaded in 0, 25 KN increments to design load and the
deflection readings are to be taken incrementally. The load is then to be removed from

                                                                                    39 of 56

                                No: VOIP-001 – K.H.

the panel and the 0, 25 kN pre-load is then to be reapplied to measure the permanent set
on the dial indicator.

vii.    Rolling load tests:

Two abutted panels, without surface coverings, are to be supported by the specified
pedestal heads (and stringers, if applicable). The pedestal heads are to be mounted on a
rigid rolling load fixture to eliminate distortion of results, which may occur through the
isolated use of pedestal base assemblies in the test fixture.
The specified wheel or castor is to be mounted in the fixture and loaded to the specified
weight, which is to be verified by the use of a calibrated Force Ring.

The wheel is then to be rolled over the panel surfaces from one panel to the other along
the centre line of the panels; along a line, which is 150 mm from the panel edges; and
along a line, which is 50 mm from the panel edges. For each of these three test locations,
new sets of panels are to be used.

viii.   COMPONENT AND SYSTEM TOLERANCES AND LIMITS

  After completion of the rolling loads, the maximum permanent set in the surface is to
  be measured.
  The access floor components and installed access floor system shall conform to the
  requirements of the Tolerance and Limits Table below:

3. FIRE PROCTETION AND DETECTION

We envisage a Fire Extinguishing System(s) capable of operation from:

   1. An Automatic Fire Detection System.
   2. A Manual Operation Signal
   3. Remote Mechanical Operation.
   4. Local Mechanical Operation.

The extinguishing system must be installed in accordance with British Standard 5306 part 5,
Total Flooding Systems together wit the National Fire Protection association Standard 2001.

The system should be designed to provide an initial concentration of 7.8% by volume, which
is capable of extinguishing surface fire within the protected area.

Calculations to determine the quantity of extinguishing agent must be based upon the
dimensions of the rooms.

   i.     GAS Storage

   a. Gas must be stored at 25bar in rechargeable containers. The containers are to
      comply with, and certificated to BS 5045:2.

   b. Containers must be filled to a density no greater than 1.0kg/liter, and painted
      signal red in accordance with BS 381C, reference 537.

   c. List the container sizes. (Each container may contain less
      than its rated capacity in order to provide the most economical agent quantity for
      the risk)

   ii       Cylinder Valves and Actuators

   One valve assembly is to be provided as part of each containers assembly. In all cases
   the valve will pass the full agent capacity of its cylinder within the NATIONAL Fire
   Protection Association requirement of 10 seconds.

   The valve works on the pressure differential principal that lends itself to several different
   methods of actuation as detailed below. Constructed of brass, the unit is inherently
   corrosion resistant.

   iii.     Actuators

   Depending upon the characteristics of the hazard and the system design, different
   methods of valve actuation may be utilized.

   Electrical actuation of the container assembly may be used with the removable of the
   solenoid actuator. List and quote separately, weatherproof or explosion-proof actuators
   that are available to special order.

   Dire pneumatic actuation of the valve may be used for remote pilot supply, or by
   container pressure from an adjacent cylinder (as in a master/slave arrangement).
   Mechanical operation of the valve may be used by _Strike Knob _ actuation directly onto
   the valve.
                                                                                         42 of 56

Describe the method to be used in the proposed solution.


IV     Discharge Nozzles

Each discharge nozzle must consist of a pre-determined orifice diameter that directly
corresponds to the containers assembly selected. This pre-determined orifice ensures
that proper agent distribution is achieved which meets the satisfaction of the Loss
Prevention Council.

The nozzles are constructed of aluminum, with an option of brass or stainless steel with
B.S.P. female connections for use on standard pipe sizes. The nozzle orifice size must
be permanently marked on each nozzle.


v.     Safety Requirements

The discharge of an extinguishing system, however safe the agent used, presents a
hazard to personnel. Similarly any fire, however small, will produce noxious products of
combustion. Consequently the following safety features should be incorporated,
particularly where the risk may be classified as a normally occupied area.

       a.     Coincidence Actuation

       Where a sensitive fire detection system is proposed for the automatic release of
       extinguishing agent, the system shall only be capable of automatic release when
       two separate circuits/zones are in alarm. The number of detectors and their
       spacing is similarly taken into account to ensure a satisfactory response time.

       b.     Time Delay

       An adjustable time delay may be fitted such that sufficient time may elapse prior
       to system discharge to ensure personnel may evacuate the risk area. Ideally, the
       delay period shall not exceed 30 seconds.

       c.     Audible Warning

       Prior to system discharge and at the commencement of the time delay period, a
       clearly audible alarm different to any other used shall sound and continue until the
       complete system is reset.

       d.     System Indications

       A visual indication showing the status of the system shall be provided outside the
       entrance to the protected area.
       Red - Indication showing that the system has discharged.
       Amber - Indication showing that the system is on _ Automatic _ control.
       Green - Indication showing that the system will not operated automatically, but
       may be released by the manual control point.
