The California Highway Patrol spent just less than $5 million on its five largest purchases of IT services in the first quarter of 2024. Those buys were for subscriptions, training, server preparation and investigative services.

According to the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System, the CHP spent $4,843,923 on its five largest buys during the period. They were:
  • $4,567,350 for annual subscriptions to the Flock Safety platform, in a one-year March 29 contract with Flock Group Inc. that was non-competitively bid.
  • $126,720 for annual services related to communications, in a Jan. 26 statewide contract with Motorola Solutions Inc.
  • $70,380 for security awareness training in a Feb. 8 small-business contract that was competitively bid. It began March 31 and runs through March 30, 2025.
  • $45,073 for server preparation services with Allied Network Solutions Inc. in a Feb. 8 contract awarded under the software licensing program.
  • $34,400 for online investigative services in a non-competitively bid contract that was awarded Jan. 12 to TransUnion Risk and Alternative Data Solutions. It was non-competitively bid because it is proprietary.
In the first quarter of the year, CHP spent $18.7 million on its five largest buys of IT goods.
