Request for Quote: Security System Consultant

The Northbrook Public Library is seeking quotes from qualified security system consultants to develop a plan that will help the library modernize and integrate its security systems (alarm, video surveillance, internal emergency communication tools such as the public address (PA) system, and facility access control system). Given the current environment and goals for modern integration, we are seeking guidance from the consultant on best hardware, software, and infrastructure upgrades as well as implementation suggestions and guidance on project scope and management. We acknowledge that this may result in a stepped approach in order to bring our multiple systems up to speed. Ultimately, the consultant would develop a security upgrade plan, request(s) for proposal(s) (RFP), and manage the external bid process.

Library staff will evaluate the RFQ responses we receive and conduct interviews with qualified firms before selecting the winning firm.

Deadline for the RFQ is November 30, 2022.
