  The Department of Public Safety (DPS) respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to waive competitive selection in the amount of $749,997.52, in FY21 from Fund 5TM0, ALI 762321 (Operating Expenses-BMV), Fund 5TM0, ALI 764321 (Highway Patrol Operating), Fund 8490, ALI 762627 (Automated Title Processing), Fund GRF, ALI 767420 (Liquor Control Operations), Fund GRF, ALI 763403 (EMA Operating), as broken down above, to contract with Excel Management Systems, Inc, Columbus, OH, to provide technical support for approximately 450 remote offices throughout the state.  
  Services provided by Excel Management include personal computer and printer installs, replacement of network equipment, electrical work, running cable, and cable connections. Work involves equipment additions, equipment moves, and the elimination of broken or unneeded/obsolete equipment. The FY21 amount includes a budget for the continuation of our required equipment replacements for Automated Title Processing Systems at County Clerk of Court locations, Driver Exam offices, and Deputy Registrar offices. These services are also being used to support the Get-In-Line-Online Project to reduce wait times and the number of people in deputy registrar office locations.

Locations covered by the contract include 186 Deputy Registrars, 135 Clerk of Court Title Offices, approximately 50 Driver Examination Stations, and 58 Highway Patrol posts as well as other miscellaneous satellite DPS locations. Having a single vendor provide these services state-wide helps assure continuity of service levels, reduces time coordinating and instructing various vendors as to technical specifications of state-owned equipment and helps to minimize equipment-related interruptions to the many services that DPS provides to Ohio's residents.
