  • $2.1 million to Galaxy Solutions for independent project oversight consulting. This is a two-year contract, from July 19-July 18, 2024.
  • $500,000 to Valley Communications for telecom cabling services. This is also a two-year contract from July 1-June 30, 2024.
  • $500,000 to Valley Communications in a separate transaction for telecom cabling services. This is also a two-year contract from July 1-June 30, 2024.
  • $394,000 to Gartner for “Gartner for IT Executives.” This is a one-year contract from July 1-June 30, 2023.
