CLOSED - Request for Proposals: IBM Power7 Hardware and Software Maintenance (2021-01)

Date: 
July 15, 2020 - 8:00am to July 30, 2020 - 5:00pm

CLOSED

The City of Urbana relies on an IBM Power7 720 server for critical systems. The City is actively replacing those systems running on the Power7, but will not complete that process before the expected end-of-life for our model (server 8202, model E4B). The City’s current IBM ServiceElite Entitlement Verification expires September 30, 2020.

The City would like to purchase extended software and hardware maintenance entitlement on our existing Power 7 machines for at least one year (to September 30, 2021), and desires an agreement for two years (to September 30, 2022). By September 2022, the City hopes to have transitioned away from all systems running on the Power7.

The City is asking Respondents to provide pricing for hardware maintenance, software maintenance, or both. The City may award the Contract to a single Successful Respondent, or may award Contracts for hardware and software maintenance separately with two Respondents.

Gather Moving Forward

Gather

Mayor Diane Wolfe Marlin was very happy to share the news in a statement to Urbana City staff.

"The sale of the property at University and Lincoln (SE corner) was completed this afternoon, so the “Gather” project is moving ahead. This is a $30 million mixed use project, with extended stay hotel rooms plus multifamily housing and small retail. This project, combined with the extensive work on University Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, and Green St. next year, will transform the campus gateway to our community. Special thanks to the Business and Development leadership team," Marlin said.

A Texas-based developer completed its purchase of the property needed to build what Urbana officials are calling the gateway to the University of Illinois. With construction slated to begin this winter at the southeast corner of Lincoln and University avenues, the Gather project is expected to include 202 apartments, 30 extended-stay rooms and 17,500 square feet of lobby, retail and outdoor public areas.
