University of Texas-Dallas Books Schlage Access Control

CARMEL, Ind. – Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies announced Aug. 1 that it has been awarded a contract by the University of Texas-Dallas for its new student housing building and to ultimately replace the access control system presently used and to install a new system that includes the Software House access management system. The Dallas system will include hardwired proximity card readers at all the exterior and hallway doors in the student housing building.

The Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies Integration Office in Plano, Texas, used the Texas Multiple Award Schedule (TXMAS) contract vehicle to identify the opportunity. After submitting their proposal and making a presentation, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies was awarded the contract.

“We did a request for information from vendors authorized to sell the Software House brand under the State of Texas TXMAS program,” reports Paul Watson, C.P.M., purchasing and hub program manager for the University of Texas-Dallas. “We did site visits and analyses of the top local companies. We decided to make an award to Ingersoll Rand as the ‘best value’ vendor for this project because they had the best level of training, support and the best proposal of all the companies. All vendors were offering the same contract pricing.”

The state of Texas procurement rules allow Texas agencies to purchase goods and services from suppliers who have converted their existing Federal Government GSA contract into a Texas contract.
