"George Mason University (247)              Improvements to the Information Technology Network Infrastructure System"


(This request seeks authorization for construction of improvements to the information technology network infrastructure system at the Fairfax, Arlington and Science and Technology campuses of George Mason University. The project will accomplish two things: First, it corrects critical existing network infrastructure problems: drainage/sump pumps, ventilation and heating, and cooling the Main Distribution Facility (MDF) locations. It provides redundant network connections to minimize widespread planned outages for campus development at Fairfax. The result of not doing this work will be a reduction in reliability of institutional network infrastructure for both wired and wireless connections. Secondly, the project provides a connection pathway to the Fairfax West Campus. The amendment is silent on the amount of the project as it will be done in a pool.)
