Tracking the Spend: Entity Made Purchases for IT Support in June

The state department’s five top purchases of IT goods last month totaled in the low seven figures.

One of California’s most vital entities to residents made a handful of significant purchases of IT goods last month.

The department is one that provides crucial services to Californians in need and has increasingly been in the news during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In total, the California Employment Development Department (EDD) made nine purchases of IT goods in June and spent more than $2.5 million on its five costliest such buys.

The EDD spent exactly $2,544,185.52 on those IT goods purchases in June. Here, with rounding, is what that money paid for, based on data in the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System:

  • $963,000 to DVBE Technology Group for “pipeline manager and solicitation builder” software. Typically, pipeline management software enables the tracking of opportunities. This is a one-year contract from June 10-June 9, 2023.
  • $858,000 to NWN Solutions Corp. for HPE server software support. EDD made the purchase June 8.
  • $717,000 to Enterprise Networking Solutions for software maintenance and support around an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. (ENS and Taborda Solutions were acquired in August 2021 by Fulcrum Technology Group, a global tech investor in IT infrastructure and cloud solutions.) EDD made the purchase June 3.
  • $5,465 to Merritt Business Supplies for Pioneer InnoTalk wireless headsets with remotes and remote hook on-and-off handset lifters. The department made the purchase June 1.
  • $358 to A2Z Comptech for 3-in-1 TableMike desktop microphones possibly by SpeechWare. EDD made the purchase June 8.
EDD made one purchase of IT services in June. It spent nearly $3 million, with rounding, with M Corp. for IT consulting services. This is a one-year contract from June 30-June 30, 2023.
