36 Miss. Code. R. § 101-1.2 - Statewide Wireless Contracts

Current through April 7, 2022

In June 2007, the Commission executed a turnkey agreement with Motorola for the implementation of a statewide digital trunked land mobile radio system to be known as the Mississippi Wireless Information Network (MSWIN). The Commission also sponsored and facilitated the establishment of a Master Cellular Agreement with Cellular South, executed in June 2007, for the procurement of cellular products and services.

These statewide contracts may be used by any state or local governmental entity, agency or department within the State of Mississippi for the purchase of wireless products and services as outlined below:

1. Use of the MSWIN Agreement

The MSWIN Agreement may be used as a purchase instrument by governmental entities as follows:

a. Any public entity may purchase subscriber and console equipment from the Mobile, Portable, and Dispatch Console Units list under the same rules and regulations as those outlined for the ITS 2-Way Radio EPL.
b. Public entities desiring to join MSWIN: To join MSWIN, the public entity must, in conjunction with the Wireless Communication Commission Governance Committee, develop and submit a Wireless Communication Plan (See Attachment A) to the Commission and receive the Commission's approval for that plan. The WCC will negotiate any necessary change orders required to the MSWIN contract to bring additional entities onto the system.
2. Use of the Master Cellular Agreement

Both ITS and the WCC have approved state agencies, institutions, and governing authorities to purchase products and services from the Master Cellular Agreement with Cellular South without additional oversight by either body and without any dollar limit.

State law requires state agencies and MLs to procure cellular products and services from the Master Cellular Agreement. The Commission strongly encourages other public entities to utilize this contract.
