DACC to award phone contract


DANVILLE — Danville Area Community College board of trustees will review bids and award a contract Tuesday night for the installation of phones in all of the college’s classrooms.

“It’s an upgrade of the existing phone system, with an addition of 80 phones for the classrooms,” said Mike Cunningham, director of administrative services at DACC.

Cunningham said the new phone system will require those on campus to dial the last four digits of a DACC phone number rather than three digits as is currently done.

DACC employees also will be able to “set their work phone to ring to their cell phone” so they don’t miss any incoming calls, he said.

Midwest Communications Group of Danville was the low bidder for the installation of the new phone system and 80 additional classroom phones at a cost of $83,305.

The trustees also will:

The low bidder was Alliance Technology Group of Chicago with a bid of $25,496 to purchase the computer memory storage.

Coming Up

The Danville Area Community College board of trustees will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the DACC board room, Vermilion Hall Room 302.
