Pottstown, PA - CODY Systems (http://codysystems.com/)], the industry leader in the real-time collection, analysis and sharing of critical data for public safety, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with the State of Indiana to be listed on the state's Quantity Purchase Agreement Listing (QPA). The deal, which went into effect on Aug. 21, 2008, means that any state, county, or municipal entity purchasing from the state's QPA list can purchase CODY Systems products and services at a pre-negotiated, discounted rate, without the need to release an RFP or otherwise engage in the traditional procurement process.
Currently, the Indiana State Excise Police Department, Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration are under contract with CODY Systems. A number of other state agencies, including the state's Gaming Division are also expected to be implementing CODY Systems' products in their departments soon.
Included among CODY's products and services listed on the QPA are CODY's Records Management System, Mobile Data & Field-reporting System, and the C.O.B.R.A. data sharing system which allows law enforcement and public safety agencies on disparate RMS systems (beyond CODY RMS systems) to share data within seconds of it being entered at the local level.
The initial contract between CODY Systems and the State of Indiana runs through 2012.
This agreement allows any local, county or city entity to be able to use the same products and services that the state may be using. As well, it simplifies the procurement process for those entities as it means that CODY products and services are available for an already agreed-upon state-negotiated significantly discounted price. Perhaps even more importantly, this agreement means that any local, county, or city can purchase any of CODY's listed products and services without the need to go out to RFP or otherwise engage in traditional procurement processes.
"This really simplifies the purchasing process for any and all county, municipal and state entities within Indiana," said Denny Fischer, National Sales Director for CODY Systems. "And it allows the small towns and municipalities the opportunity to take advantage of the pre-negotiated pricing between the State of Indiana and CODY Systems. This means there is no bidding, no RFP process, just one price that is listed on the QPA. This offers the chance for all towns, counties and the state to be linked through technology and services, making critical communications easier as well, and creating the foundation for a real-time state-wide data sharing network."
