The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) made more than 20 purchases of IT goods during April and spent nearly $2 million on its five most expensive buys.

CalOES made 24 IT goods buys in the year’s fourth month. Its five most expensive purchases cost $1,957,516, according to data in the State Contract and Procurement Registration System. Here, with rounding, is what the department spent:

  • $1.3 million with AT&T to upgrade from RapidDeploy Radius software to RadiusPlus. CalOES made the purchase April 28.
  • $300,000 with Dataminr for its First Alert product “for first response,” which enables quicker emergency alerts. CalOES made the purchase April 21.
  • $167,000 with Castro International Consulting for a one-year purchase or subscription for “SRX300-CS-BUN-1, 1 YR CONTENT SECURITY BUNDLE,” potentially a purchase involving Juniper Networks’ SRX300-series devices. The office made the purchase on April 26.
  • $98,000 with Granite Data Solutions for a one-year subscription to “WV-1 DRAGOS WORLDVIEW,” likely a reference to Dragos’ “actionable industrial threat intelligence” product. CalOES made the purchase April 6.
  • $97,000 with NWN Corp. for “7WL86UP#ABA HP PB650G5 I5-8365U 15 8GB/256 PC,” likely a reference to the purchase of a quantity of HP’s ProBook 650 G5 notebook computers. CalOES made the purchase April 14.
