911 center to get new computers

January 27, 2009

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday authorized the purchase of 20 Dell computer workstations for the new 911 emergency center.

The high-performance computers will be purchased from GHA Technologies Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz., for $80,980, according to a report by Information Technologies Director Ron Whitt.

The contract for the purchase was negotiated by the Western States Contracting Alliance, a 15-state cooperative purchasing group, Whitt said. Agreements made by the alliance are open to approved governmental bodies, including those in states not in the alliance, Whitt said.

Funding for the workstations is already in this year's budget, he said.
