The Judicial Council of California (“Judicial Council”), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the primary policy making body of the California judicial system.  The Security Operations unit, within the office of Facilities Services, provides certain security services to the Superior Courts of California, including services related to electronic security systems. 

California courts occupy all 58 counties in the state.  Most courthouses have some level of electronic security in place, including security video, access control, duress and intercom systems.  The systems vary greatly in age and condition.  In order to plan and budget for necessary system replacements or refreshment, the Judicial Council is seeking a qualified consultant to assist with the evaluation of the electronic security systems currently being used in the California courthouses.  The primary focus of this project will be to evaluate approximately 200 security video systems throughout California, with the possibility of adding the other systems mentioned above to the process if time and budget allow.  The goal of the project is to perform and complete the systems evaluations over a three-year period.

The Judicial Council, through this Request for Proposal (“RFP”) is soliciting Proposals from Firm(s) with expertise in complex electronic security systems consultation to provide consultation services necessary to evaluate the condition of and provide recommendations and options for refreshment or replacement of electronic security systems in court facilities throughout California. The responsible party shall be licensed to do business in California.  All work shall be performed under and approved by an established, qualified and experienced representative firm.  Firm team shall be comprised of staff familiar with electronic security systems including but not limited to: security video, electronic access control, intercom, and wireless duress systems.  Firm shall be familiar with the integration of the security systems described above. The purpose of this RFP is to gather information, and will not result in any award(s) for design, installation or refreshing of the systems being evaluated.
