Changes have been made to the Specifications: Request for Clarification submitted by Luis Navarro representing TIP Systems; From: Lou Navarro [mailto:lnavarro@adelphia.net] Sent: Wednesday, April 09, 2008 5:30 PM To: Roberto Luna Subject: Inmate Telecommunications RFP    TIP Systems has a question regarding Indemnity: As most inmate phone providers, and prospective agencies, are very aware of liabilities relating to suicidal phonecord hangings, of which there have been several in Texas detention centers, why is Brownville specifying a "7 in Armored Handset Cord"? Steel cords, which can easily support an inmate during a suicidal hanging, are an enormous liability for the vendor and municipality. Both the Texas Commission on Jail Standards and the Journal of Forensic Sciences have made recommendations against the use of corded handsets in detention environments, even so-call "short" armored cords are a risk. Thank you for your response, Louis Navarro TIP Systems 518-745-7431 City Response: The City of Brownsville, Police Department will allow vendors to submit proposals for cordless inmate phones and/or “7 in Armored Handset cord inmate phones.

They generally deliver in 60 days, at a minimum, so we request that the installation deadline be moved to 90 days. In reference to Sect II, Part 4.3: We ask for clarification on what you wish to accomplish by giving the inmate access to a live operator? We provide 24/7 live operator access for the friends and family of inmates, but it would put the City of Brownsville at great risk to give the inmates access to a live operator. What prompted the City to request hands free phones in the RFP?
