In the second phase of an overall technology infrastructure overhaul following last year’s hardware upgrades, new software is recommended to replace the current system, now at the 2008 level, with the 2016  level for Barry County servers and e-mail.

IT Director David Shinavier requested the purchase of the upgrade from low bidder Dell, Inc. for $40,693.84.


Precision Data Products, Inc. bid $45,852.25; CDW-G quoted $42,599.12. The cost will come from the Data Fund. The upgrade is in the IT Department’s capital budget.

“It’s expected to be a five-year solution,” Shinavier said.

The Barry County Commission’s committee of the whole recommended the purchase. Commissioners will act on the recommendation at the next regular meeting.
