ImagineANON # 1:
Start reading on page 30 and go up for a more balanced view.
So you're saying that on page 30, that Kurt was under the assumption that he had authorized the use of "4.9" which I'm assuming is the frequency of wireless spectrum you would use to transmit the data from the cameras?
In his response below that, Perrin notes that he had not officially authorized it until the day that email was sent.
Basically what you're saying is that Active Solutions and Southern Electronics were incompetent and were not getting the job done, correct? Also there seems to be a large amount of unpaid invoices to Southern which was slowing the whole process down, am I correct about that?
Let's assume that's true for sake of argument...that the contractors were inept (I'm not saying they were, I'm just saying that I'll play along with that). That still doesn't answer the following questions:
Who authorized the city and/or Netmethods to install the cameras which Perrin mentioned? Where is the labor contract for that work and who did the actual labor? Is it a line item in the state contract with Dell or was a there a separate contract issued...which is what should have happened? How was that done without approval from City Council? Was it put out for RFP as it should have been if Kurt was in fact pulling the contract from Active Solutions/Southern Electronics?
And...as I understand it, the state contract was with Dell, correct? Was Dell contracting Veracent for any services and/or equipment? I believe they were....so Veracent was building the plastic camera boxes...selling them to Dell who then put them on the State contract and sold them back to the city at what markup? Who authorized that, Meffert or Kurt? And are you going to tell me that neither of them were aware of this inflationary loop set up by Veracent?
