Prudent move on Fulton counties' part

It's about time some competence is shown on behalf of the commission. The vendor in question has a habit of writing RFP's that call for proprietary systems with unlimited cost ceilings. Requiring a multi-vendor contract and allowing other vendors who have P25 phase II compliant systems like Harris and Cassidian means taxpayers get the best for their investment, and the best product for our public safety professionals without being locked into another proprietary system, like the one we already have. Hats off to Mr. Pitts and Mr. Lowe for calling the baby ugly. It's about time the way public safety radio system procurement is done is changed. And Fulton county is leading the way with this move.
