AAPS Briefed on Projectors, Amplifiers

The AAPS trustees have been presented with a recommendation for a district-wide replacement of classroom projectors, approximately 200 sound amplification systems, and supporting electrical equipment. The briefing took place at the board’s Feb. 27, 2013 meeting.

A request for bids on the project went out on Jan. 10, 2013. Bids were received and publicly opened on Feb. 5, 2013. After various companies were interviewed by the district’s technology bond professional team, the team recommended the following contract awards:  Great Lakes Power and Lighting  ($393,000 for electrical work); The Professional Group ($1,879,619 for audiovisual equipment); and to AVI-SPL ($183,168 for the sound amplification systems).

As this was a first briefing, the board will vote on the purchase at its next regular meeting.

This brief was filed from the board room of the Ann Arbor District Library in downtown Ann Arbor at Fifth and William. A more detailed report of the meeting will follow: [link]
