A key state department focused primarily on law enforcement spent significantly less on its five largest purchases of IT goods in the third quarter of 2022 than in the previous quarter, a state database shows.

The California Department of Justice (DOJ), which has more than 4,500 employees, has its main offices in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Oakland and Fresno.

From July 1 through Sept. 30, the department spent $1,922,161 on its five largest buys of IT goods — less than half what it spent on IT goods during the second quarter of 2022, when the five largest purchases totaled $4,663,453. The Q2 purchases included power supplies, keyboards and other items.

DOJ’s five largest buys of IT goods in Q3, with rounding, were:
  • $619,884 for “HPE Synergy 12000 Configure-to-order Frame with 10x Fans Product,” a July 13 statewide contract that runs through July 12, 2027. It was awarded to NWN Solutions Corp.
  • $481,343 for “HPE Synergy 12000 Configure-to-order Frame with 10x Fans Product,” also a July 13 statewide contract with NWN Solutions Corp. that runs through July 12, 2027.
  • $330,494 for Commvault maintenance renewal, an Aug. 31 contract awarded to CDW Government LLC under the state’s Software Licensing Program (SLP). The contract runs through Aug. 31, 2023.
  • $259,878 for NetApp hardware, software and installation services, a July 22 statewide contract running through July 21, 2027. It was awarded to Enterprise Network Solutions (now OPTM).
  • $230,561 for Kofax KTA SW Assurance Renewal, a one-year SLP contract running through June 30. It was awarded to Intelligent Content Solutions LLC.
