PALOMAR COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT
NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS CALLING FOR BIDS
---
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Palomar Community College District of San Diego County, California, acting by and through its Governing Board, hereinafter referred to as the DISTRICT will receive up to, but not later than 2:30 PM, on the 9th day of December, 2008, sealed bids for the award of a contract for:

BID NO. B-9002: WAN Upgrade to Optical Ethernet Carrier-Managed Service at 8 Educational Centers

In order to provide quality network services throughout the Palomar Community College District's educational sites/centers, the Wide Area Network (WAN) must be upgraded. The eight sites/centers involved in this project are located at: (1) San Marcos Main Campus; (2) Escondido Center; (3) Public Safety Training Center in San Marcos; (4) Camp Pendleton; (5) Pauma Center at Pauma Indian Reservation; (6) Fallbrook High School; (7) Mt. Carmel High School; and (8) Ramona High School. The first two sites “1” and “2” are properties owned by the District, while the remaining six sites “3” through “8” are properties utilized by the District under existing use-of-facilities type agreements between the District and the applicable owner (“Host Entity”). The District also has agreements in place with each of the applicable entities (“Host Entities”) to cooperatively accomplish this WAN upgrade project.
Exclusive of the Escondido Center, the District's WAN consists of a DS3 with multiple point-to-point digital signal level 1 (T-1) service from the Main Campus in San Marcos to each of the educational centers. The T-1 bandwidth of 1.54 megabits per second (Mbps) is insufficient to sustain the requirements of the Internet applications being added to support curriculum and student services. The Escondido Center currently has a 20 Mbps link to the Main Campus provided by Cox Business Services under a 5-year agreement which will expire March 31, 2010. Since the District's network uses the Ethernet networking protocol, Optical Ethernet technology will extend the San Marcos campus network to the other centers, providing them with similar telecommunications service. Additionally, under an Optical Ethernet carrier-managed service, the District will be able to customize the WAN bandwidth between 5 Mbps and 1 Gbps to meet the transmission requirements of each center and to provide for future growth with minimum investment.
As a result, the District is requesting bids from local telephone carriers to upgrade its WAN to an Optical Ethernet carrier-managed service at the eight sites and subsequently to provide the on-going Optical Ethernet carrier-managed service to those sites for a period of five (5) years maximum, not to extend beyond June 30, 2014. The District intends to have awarded the bid, entered into a contract with and issued a purchase order / notice to proceed to the awarded telecommunications carrier by December 22, 2008. The District's goal is to have the awarded carrier complete the upgrade project at all eight sites by June 30, 2009, so that the District could start utilizing the upgraded system and new carrier-managed service effective July 1, 2009.
In regard to the Escondido Center, bidders will be asked to submit two alternate bids: (Alternate A) for the new service to begin by/on July 1, 2009; and (Alternate B) for new service to begin April 1, 2010, after the existing Cox agreement expires on March 31, 2010. The District will evaluate bid submittals based on the “Grand Total Bid Evaluation Cost” (a pre-determined formula set forth in the bid documents), which will calculate the estimated total costs for all 8 sites for the one-time construction and installation costs (the upgrade) as well as the estimated ongoing monthly carrier-managed service costs for the approximate 5 year maximum period through June 30, 2014. The District reserves the sole right to select between the Bid Alternates A and B for the Escondido Center, since the District will take into account any costs which would result in an early termination of the existing 5-year agreement with Cox for the Escondido Center.
Bidders shall also submit firm one-time installation (but not construction) rates and monthly on-going carrier managed service rates for any possible other educational sites/centers within the Palomar Community College District boundaries which the District may request to be added under the awarded contract. Any such additions shall be covered only through the remainder of said maximum 5-year agreement term.
Bidders are required to be telecommunications carriers who are certified by the California Public Utilities Commission; any construction-related work not performed by the telecommunications carrier itself must be performed by said carrier's sub-contractor, who shall be either: (a) another telecommunications carrier certified by the California Public Utilities Commission; or (b) a contractor appropriately licensed by the California Contractors State License Board for the work to be performed.
MANDATORY PRE-BID MULTI-SITE JOB WALKS will be held at a total of seven (7) of the sites / centers over the three-day period of November 11, 12, and 13, 2008, as follows:
€ Tuesday, November 11, 2008, 9:00 AM - Palomar College Main Campus, 1140 W. Mission Rd., San Marcos, CA 92069. Meet in Bldg./Room A-10 (Business Services / Purchasing Services Office).

Further details regarding these mandatory job walks are available in the bid documents. There will be no job walk for the Camp Pendleton Center.
The upgrade portion of this project is a “public work” as defined within California Labor Code Section 1720. The District has initiated and enforces a Labor Compliance Program (LCP) that received “Initial Approval” from the Director of California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) in accordance with California Labor Code (Labor Code) 1770, et seq. on March 24, 2003 (currently on extended approval), which requires the payment of the general rate of per diem for holiday and overtime work and the employment of apprentices for any Prop M Funded School Facilities project of $1,000 or more. Any questions concerning labor compliance requirements or procedures may be directed to: Vinton Singer, Labor Compliance Manager, Keenan & Associates at (310) 212-0363, extension 2004.
For the upgrade portion of this project, prevailing wage rates shall apply. The Director of Industrial Relations has determined the general prevailing rate of per diem wages in the locality in which this work is to be performed for each craft or type of worker needed to execute the Contract which will be awarded to the successful bidder, copies of which are available online at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlsr. A copy of these rates shall be posted by the successful bidder at the job site. The successful bidder, and all subcontractor(s) under him, shall comply with all applicable Labor Code provisions, which include, but are not limited to the payment of not less than the required prevailing rates to all workers employed by them in the execution of the Contract, the employment of apprentices, the hours of labor and the debarment of contractors and subcontractors.

Such bids shall be received in the office of the Supervisor, Purchasing Services, Palomar Community College District, 1140 West Mission Road, Room A-10, San Marcos, California 92069-1487, and shall be opened and publicly read aloud at the above stated time and place.
The District reserves the right to reject any or all bids, to accept or to reject any one or more items on a bid, or to waive any irregularities or informalities in the bids or in the bidding process. The District may award a contract according to the State of California Education Code Section # 81645: The governing board of any community college district may contract with a party who has submitted one of the three lowest responsible competitive proposals or competitive bids, for the acquisition, procurement, or maintenance of electronic data-processing systems and equipment, electronic telecommunications equipment, supporting software, and related materials, goods, and services, in accordance with procedures and criteria established by the governing board.
Although representatives from the “Host Entities” may assist the District throughout this bidding process and through the upgrade/construction portion of the project, all expenses related to this project shall be the responsibility of the District, and all related agreements and required documents shall be entered into between the District and the awarded carrier. The awarded carrier shall not require the “Host Entities” to enter into any agreements or complete documents in relation to this project.
