UNCommon common sense
Each year, the State of California purchases close to $1B in IT products from various vendors for its many departments and agencies. As you might imagine, it’s a pretty important task for the State to do as efficient a job as possible for the taxpayers of CA.
Last summer, the State of California went out to bid for new contracts to purchase information technology hardware. The intent was to simplify purchasing for departments and agencies in the State of CA and provide the most cost effective way to do so. The State identified various technology platforms they use and the different vendors they planned to purchase for the next 3-5 years. Once these vendors were identified, the State solicited pricing for these products from Value Added Resellers (VARs) for each vendors’ products.
Roundstone Solutions is a focus VAR for Nutanix in Northern CA. Nutanix asked Roundstone to participate in this RFP, and we did. In March 2019, the State’s Department of General Services awarded Roundstone the contract to supply Nutanix products to State departments and agencies for the next 3-5 years. This contract can also be utilized by any Public Sector entity within the State of CA, namely local governments and Education entities.
The contract was effective April 1, 2019 and is in place now.
The contract is pre-negotiated, meaning all Public Sector entities may use the contract without having to go to bid, as negotiations have already been completed, saving the hassle of individual RFPs.
