A Tale of Two Counties.......

As the deadline for narrow banding 2-way radios grows nearer, the potential for fear based tactics, sole source procurement, and lack of understanding create perfect storm conditions for misuse of public funds.  I'll give you an example. Within the last several weeks, two Alabama counties contracted to have their radios narrow banded.  The actual number of radios involved was about equal for both counties.  One paid over seventy thousand dollars.  The other paid eighteen HUNDRED dollars!

How does such a thing happen?  You already know the answer.  The good news is that it does NOT have to happen in your county or municipality or even to private business.  For the solution, just click here.  You'll be glad you did!
