Subject:
Purchase of Panasonic CF-33 Toughbook Tablets for Police Department
RECOMMENDATION
Approve the purchase of ten Panasonic CF-33 ToughBook tablets from CDCE, Inc. for $45,217.50.
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
The Police Department issues and uses Panasonic CF-33 (ToughBook) tablets for field operations. In preparation for the FY 2021-22 budget, the Police Department submitted a Decision Package to purchase ten new ToughBooks. The Decision Package was approved as part of budget adoption.

The Police Department purchased its current ToughBooks from CDCE in Yorba Linda. CDCE provided a quote for the purchase of the ten new tablets (attached). Including tax and freight, each tablet will cost $4,521.75; ten tablets will cost $45,217.50.

CDCE's quote conforms to a NAPSO Valuepoint California Contract Master Agreement, so this purchase is exempt from normal bidding process and policies. Purchasing Code 3.24 allows the City to make purchases based on other contracts. The NASPO cooperative agreement was competitively bid on a national level, which offers the City better pricing based on higher bid volumes than the City could realize on its own.
COMMISSION/COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION
This Staff Report was reviewed by the Finance Committee on 7/13/2021 and recommended for approval.
FISCAL IMPACT/SUMMARY
During budget preparations, the Revenue & Budget Division allocated $44,306 for this purchase in account 231-21-2141-4639.
