RFP Questions and Answers for Paducah Network Switches and Routers

Q: The RFB states a 3-year term for DNA Essentials, but does not specifically call out a time period for 8x5xNBD support. Should it follow the same time period as DNA Essentials?
A: Yes. 8x5xNBD should also be for a 3-year term.

Q: Can we submit an RFB digitally instead of mailing it?
A: No. At this time we do not allow bids to be emailed as we cannot certify they are not opened before the date/time prescribed in the bid packet.
