If a vendor employs a cloud storage solution, it must meet the NYPD’s security requirements, as outlined in the Solicitation. The contract established as a result of this solicitation will serve as a Requirements Contract for the purchase of hardware, storage, licenses, and maintenance services on an as-needed basis. The anticipated term of the contract would be for five years from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2020. There would also be three 3-year renewal options.

A contract award will be made by the Negotiated Acquisition source selection method, pursuant to City of New York Procurement Policy Board Rules (PPB Rules) § 3-04(b)(2) because the NYPD has determined that it is neither practical nor advantageous to award the proposed contract by competitive sealed bids or competitive sealed proposals, and that this source selection method is in the City’s best interest. First, there exists is a compelling need for the goods and services that cannot be timely met through competitive sealed bidding or competitive sealed proposals. Second, there are a limited number of vendors able to provide the required body cameras and the related equipment and services of the nature and specificity required by the NYPD. Thus, pursuant to Sections 3-04(b)(2)(i)(D) and 3 04(b)(2)(ii) of the PPB Rules, a special case determination has been made that this solicitation should be done using the Negotiated Acquisition method of Source Selection. Any Vendors that wish to express an interest to be considered for this solicitation may download or request the complete solicitation document and submit completed application(s) if they feel that they can supply the required body cameras and related goods and services.
