The state entity charged with safeguarding public health made nearly four dozen purchases of IT goods in March and spent in the middle of six figures on the five costliest.

The California Department of Public Health made 42 purchases of IT goods last month and spent exactly $7,717,382.10 on its five most expensive such buys. Here, with rounding, is what that money paid for, based on data in the State Contract and Procurement Registration System:

  • $2.7 million to NWN Solutions for Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s XP8 hybrid storage array. CDPH made the purchase March 1.
  • $2 million to Enterprise Networking Solutions (ENS) for Rubrik’s r6416s four-node 192 terabyte network storage appliance. CDPH made the purchase March 11. (ENS and Taborda Solutions were purchased in August by Fulcrum Technology Group.)
  • $1.9 million to Zones for “performance support.” CDPH made the purchase March 25.
  • $762,000 to ENS for IT service delivery of cloud-based software as a service, and software maintenance and support. The department made the purchase March 14.
  • $479,000 to Systems Solutions DVBE for business function-specific software, for 50-250 users. This is a slightly more than three-year contract, from March 11-March 31, 2025.
