Tracking the Spend: $3.6M for CHP’s Five Largest Buys of IT Services

In the last quarter of 2023, the California Highway Patrol purchased IT services related to consulting, telematics and data management.

The California Highway Patrol spent $3.6 million on its five largest buys of IT services in the last quarter of 2023.

According to the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System, CHP’s five largest buys were primarily related to consulting services, telematics and data collection.

The department’s five buys between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 totaled $3,690,815 (with rounding). They were:
  • $1,500,000 for IT consulting services in a Dec. 29 contract with SDI Presence LLC. This was awarded under a master agreement.
  • $788,322 for GEOTAB Telematics with support, universal harness and training, in a Nov. 9 statewide contract with Geotab USA Inc.
  • $600,000 for consulting services on CHP’s Wireless Mobile Video/Audio Recording System (WMVARS), in an Oct. 1 contract with Gartner Inc. that was awarded under the IT master service agreement.
  • $577,493 for UFED 4PC Ultimate, which allows users to perform data extraction, decoding, analysis and reporting on a single platform. The Nov. 28 contract with Cellebrite Inc. was non-competitively bid because it’s proprietary software.
  • $225,000 for subscriptions to an investigative data platform with data access and FaceSearch with Vigilant Image Gallery Access. This was a Dec. 28 contract with Vigilant Solutions LLC that was non-competitively bid because it’s proprietary software.
