AWARD
Harris County reserves the right to award this contract on the basis of LOWEST AND BEST OFFER in accordance with the
laws of the State of Texas, to waive any formality or irregularity, to make awards to more than one offeror, to reject any or all
proposals. In the event the lowest dollar offeror meeting specifications is not awarded a contract, the offeror may appear before
the Commissioners Court, Hospital District Board of Managers, the Juvenile Board or other applicable governing body and
present evidence concerning his responsibility after officially notifying the Office of the Purchasing Agent of his intent to
appear.
BONDS
If this proposal requires submission of proposal guarantee and performance bond, there will be a separate page explaining those
requirements. Offers submitted without the required proposal bond or cashier's checks are not acceptable.
CERTIFICATION REGARDING DEBARMENT, SUSPENSION INELIGIBILITY, AND VOLUNTARY EXCLUSION
The Contractor certifies by execution of this Contract that it is not ineligible for participation in federal or state assistance
programs under Executive Order 12549, "Debarment and Suspension." The Contractor further agrees to include this
certification in all contracts between itself and any subcontractors in connection with the services performed under this Contract.
Contractor also certifies that contractor will notify Harris County in writing immediately if contractor is not in compliance with
Executive Order 12549 during the term of this contract. Contractor agrees to refund Harris County for any payments made to
the contractor while ineligible.

heads are NOT authorized to sign agreements for Harris County. Binding agreements shall remain in effect until all products
and/or services covered by this purchase have been satisfactorily delivered and accepted.

Page 3 of 61
DIGITAL FORMAT
If offeror obtained the proposal specifications in digital format in order to prepare a response, the proposal must be submitted in
hard copy according to the instructions contained in this proposal package. If, in its proposal response, offeror makes any
changes whatsoever to the County's published proposal specifications, the County's proposal specifications as published shall
control. Furthermore, if an alteration of any kind to the County's published proposal specifications is only discovered after the

DISQUALIFICATION OF OFFEROR
Upon signing this proposal document, an offeror offering to sell supplies, materials, services, or equipment to Harris County

et seq., as amended, or the federal antitrust laws, and has not communicated directly or indirectly the proposal made to any
competitor or any other person engaged in such line of business. Any or all proposals may be rejected if the County believes
that collusion exists among the offerors. Proposals in which the prices are obviously unbalanced may be rejected. If multiple
proposals are submitted by an offeror and after the proposals are opened, one of the proposals is withdrawn, the result will be
that all of the proposals submitted by that offeror will be withdrawn; however, nothing herein prohibits a vendor from submitting
multiple proposals for different products or services.
E-MAIL ADDRESSES CONSENT
Vendor affirmatively consents to the disclosure of its e-mail addresses that are provided to Harris County, the Harris County
Flood Control District, the Harris County Hospital District including its HMO, the Harris County Appraisal District, or any

Gov’t Code Ann. §552.137, as amended, and shall survive termination of this agreement. This consent shall apply to e-mail
addresses provided by Vendor, its employees, officers, and agents acting on Vendor’s behalf and shall apply to any e-mail
address provided in any form for any reason whether related to this bid/proposal or otherwise.
EVALUATION
Evaluation shall be used as a determinant as to which proposed items or services are the most efficient and/or most economical for
the County. It shall be based on all factors which have a bearing on price and performance of the items in the user environment.
All proposals are subject to negotiations by the Purchasing Department and other appropriate departments, with recommendation to
the appropriate governing body. Compliance with all requirements, delivery and needs of the using department are considerations
in evaluating proposals. Pricing is NOT the only criteria for making a recommendation. A preliminary evaluation by Harris
County will be held and appropriate proposals will be subjected to the negotiating process. Upon completion of the negotiations,
Harris County will make an award. All proposals that have been submitted shall be available and open for public inspection after
the contract is awarded except for trade secrets or confidential information contained in the proposals and identified as such.
FISCAL FUNDING
A multi-year lease or lease/purchase arrangement (if requested by the Special Requirements/Instructions), or any contract
continuing as a result of an extension option, must include fiscal funding out. If, for any reason, funds are not appropriated to
continue the lease or contract, said lease or contract shall become null and void on the last day of the current appropriation of
funds. After expiration of the lease, leased equipment shall be removed by the offeror from the using department without
penalty of any kind or form to Harris County. All charges and physical activity related to delivery, installation, removal and
redelivery shall be the responsibility of the offeror.
GOVERNING FORMS
In the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions of these requirements and the specifications, the specifications
shall govern. In the event of any conflict of interpretation of any part of this overall document, Harris County's interpretation
shall govern.

This request for proposal is governed by the competitive bidding requirements of the County Purchasing Act, Texas Local
Government Code, §262.021 et seq., as amended. Offerors shall comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and
regulations. Offeror is further advised that these requirements shall be fully governed by the laws of the State of Texas and that
Harris County may request and rely on advice, decisions and opinions of the Attorney General of Texas and the County Attorney
concerning any portion of these requirements.

GRANT FUNDING
Any contract entered into by the County that is to be paid from grant funds shall be limited to payment from the grant funding
and the vendor/provider understands that the County has not set aside any County funds for the payment of obligations under a
grant contract. If grant funding should become unavailable at any time for the continuation of services paid for by the grant, and
further funding cannot be obtained for the contract, then the sole recourse of the provider shall be to terminate any further
services under the contract and the contract shall be null and void.
HIPAA COMPLIANCE
Offeror agrees to comply with the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Pub. L. No.

under terms of this proposal. Certification of such coverage must be provided to the County upon request.

then in the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions of the County's published proposal package, or any portion
thereof, and the terms and provisions of the response made by offeror, the County's proposal package as published shall control.
Furthermore, if an alteration of any kind to the County's published proposal package is only discovered after the contract is
executed and is or is not being performed, the contract is subject to immediate cancellation.

invalid, such holding shall not affect the remaining portions of these requirements and the specifications and it is hereby
declared that such remaining portions would have been included in these requirements and the specifications as though the
invalid portion had been omitted.
SILENCE OF SPECIFICATIONS
The apparent silence of specifications as to any detail, or the apparent omission from it of a detailed description concerning any

and all services required to Harris County's satisfaction and/or to meet all other obligations and requirements. Harris County
may terminate the contract without cause upon thirty (30) days written notice.
TERMINATION FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY VIOLATIONS.
Harris County has the option to terminate this contract immediately without prior notice if offeror fails to perform any of its
obligations in this contract if the failure (a) created a potential threat to health or safety or (b) violated a law, ordinance, or
regulation designed to protect health or safety.

offeror's expense. If offeror fails to make the appropriate correction within a reasonable time, Harris County may correct at the
offeror's expense.
VENDORS OWING TAXES OR OTHER DEBTS
Pursuant to TX Local Government Code 262.0276, Harris County Commissioners Court has adopted a policy which requires
that vendors’ taxes and other Harris County debts be current as of the date bids/proposals are due. Proposers with delinquent
county taxes or other county debts on the due date will not be eligible for award. Whether or not a vendor’s taxes are delinquent
will be determined by an independent review of the Tax Office records. Prior to submitting an offer, vendors are encouraged to
visit the Tax Office website at www.hctax.net, set up a portfolio of their accounts and make their own initial determination of
the status of their tax accounts. Vendors who believe a delinquency is reflected in error must contact the Tax Office to correct
any errors or discrepancies prior to submitting their offer in order to ensure that their offer will be considered. Furthermore, if,
during the performance of this contract, a vendor’s taxes become delinquent or a vendor becomes otherwise indebted to Harris
County, Harris County reserves the right to provide notice to the Auditor or Treasurer pursuant to Texas Local Government
Code §154.045. This policy is effective for all bids/proposals due on or after November 1, 2009.

eliminated from consideration. However, Harris County, reserves the right to accept such a proposal if it is
determined to be in the best interest of Harris County.

proposal response may be incorporated into any contract which results from this RFP, and vendors are

claims.
Harris County Purchasing may initiate discussions with selected vendors; however, discussions may not be
initiated by vendors. Harris County Purchasing expects to conduct discussions with vendor’s representatives
authorized to contractually obligate vendor with an offer. Vendors shall not contact any Harris County
personnel during the RFP process without the express permission from the Office of the Harris County
Purchasing Agent. Harris County Purchasing may disqualify any vendor who has made site visits, contacted
Harris County personnel or distributed any literature without authorization from Harris County Purchasing.

Purchasing. All presentations and/or meetings between Harris County and vendor relating to this RFP shall

committee. Proposals, vendor presentations and product/service evaluations may develop into negotiating
sessions with vendor(s) as selected by the Evaluation Committee. Harris County expects to conduct
negotiations with vendor’s representatives authorized to contractually obligate vendor with an offer. If
vendor is unable to agree to contract terms and conditions, Harris County reserves the right to terminate
contract negotiations with that vendor and initiate negotiations with another vendor. In addition to a
presentation, visits by the Evaluation Committee to representative vendor client sites may be conducted where

computer requirements are minimums.
c. The Touchscreen Networking
The touchscreen stations shall be connected through a network that complies with
requirements for IEEE 802.3ab for 100/1000BaseT Ethernet. 100/1000BaseT is required so
that other members of the network are not subject to problems associated with wiring or
Ethernet ports of other network members including access to on screen video display from the
Vicon-Net system.
The programmable logic controller (PLC) shall also be a member of the network and shall
communicate directly to all control stations at a minimum standard of 10/100BaseT. All
touchscreens shall communicate directly to the each PLC independently of one another, and
the failure of no combination of touchscreen(s) shall cause any other to not function. Server
configurations where one computer serves as the communications server to the PLC or where
a local touch screen can only communicate to the local PLC in the event of a rollover are not
acceptable.
3.
Touchscreen Configuration Software
a. Touchscreen Configuration Software: The touchscreen configuration software shall be nonproprietary. It also shall be developed using a standard Windows based industrial software
package that is regularly used in industrial applications and 100% compatible with the industrial
PLC specified. Wonderware InTouch 10.1 or latest version available or equal.
b. The configuration or development software must be compatible with the PLC programming
software. The configuration software manufacturer must have the facilities and a regular
schedule for training so those individuals who receive the training will have the ability to develop
or modify the touchscreen configuration. The touchscreen station is for operator interface only.
All control functions are to be controlled by PLC software.

SPECIFICATIONS (CONTINUED)
c. Passwords and User Levels - The touchscreen shall have 9999 passwords and 99 different Users’
Levels. Harris County shall have an administration password that enables Harris County the
ability to alter passwords and password levels. The administration password shall be able to be
changed by Harris County. The user levels allow or not allow operators certain abilities on the
control station. Some of these abilities are describe in this specification others will be determined
during the initial software meetings with Harris County/Harris County. The touchscreen software
shall allow for changes to the user password and then automatically sync to the rest of the system
including the system logger. Systems that require a Windows domain server to manage users will
not be accepted.
d. Touchscreen Integration: The touchscreen is only an operator interface to the system. No control
logic is allowed on/in the touchscreen computer. All control logic is to reside and be performed
in the PLC. Touchscreen stations and graphic control panels must be able to control the same
points and be able to be integrated into the same control system.
e. All system functions currently incorporated into the system must be retained in the system after
upgrades in addition to those listed in this specification. See section Advanced Software Features
for additional functions required for this system.
f. Touchscreen Control Station Security:
All touchscreen control stations are to be enclosed to prevent tampering using a computer
security enclosure that is lockable. This prevents non-key holders from tampering and port
access on all touchscreen control stations.
Basic Software Feature Set
1.
Door Control - Door control logic shall live in and be authorized by the PLC not the human-machine
interface (HMI). The icons shall be on the HMI but the HMI programming has to refer to the PLC
for decision and actions. The HMI only acts as a “window” into the PLC for door control. This is for
security and reliability purposes. Door control shall also be integrated with the touchscreen stations
to operate in the following manner.
a. Unlock - During an Unlock function, all doors shall be configured to automatically relock after a
programmable amount of time. All swinging doors will automatically perform in this manner
during an Unlock function. All overhead doors (basement entrance and exit ramp) shall also be
configured to automatically close after a programmable amount of time if so desired by Harris
County. These programmable times are dynamically adjustable on the fly by Harris County.
b. Hold Open - During a Hold Open door function, all swinging doors, regardless of the type of
locking hardware, will remain unlocked until commanded to lock. Provide a flashing orange
outline around candidate doors. Once selected to the Hold Open mode, the flashing orange
outline will show steady indicating that door is in Hold Open mode. Only solenoid type locks are
allowed to be continually powered for the Hold Open function. All full cycle locks with
mechanical latchback features will first be provided with a momentary pulse long enough to
unlock the door and latch it into the mechanical latchback position; then when the door is opened
and then closed, the PLC will sense when the door re-secures and then will unlock it again. The
PLC shall be programmed to interface to any lock in order to satisfy the Hold Open function as
described.
c. Overhead Door Open - When opening an overhead door, the PLC, through interposing
mechanical relays, will energize the relay to power the door open until it senses the open limit
Page 39 of 61
SPECIFICATIONS (CONTINUED)
d.
e.
f.
g.
h.
i.
j.
k.
switch or until a programmable amount of time that is longer than the time it takes for the door to
typically open. When the door open limit switch is sensed or the programmable time has elapsed,
then the PLC will de-energize the interposing relay.
Overhead Door Close - When closing an overhead door, the PLC, through interposing mechanical
relays, will energize the relay to power the door closed until it senses the close limit switch or
until a programmable amount of time that is longer than the time it takes for the door to typically
close. When the door close limit switch is sensed or the programmable time has elapsed, then the
PLC will de-energize the interposing relay.
Overhead Door Stop - When opening or closing a overhead door, a stop command sent to the
PLC will stop the door(s) in mid travel. Doors that are designed for a stop circuit shall have an
interposing stop relay wired. When the stop command is issued, this relay will energize and stop
the door. For doors that do not have a stop circuit, the stop command will de-energize the open
and close relays. For doors that do not have a hardwired electrical interface external to the PLC
(local pushbutton station); then if this door is not commanded open or closed, then the stop
command shall be continuously issued by the PLC.
Overhead Door Dwell - A overhead door shall be able to be reversed by the control officer or IR
sensor without forcing the officer to first stop the door. The PLC logic shall determine that the
door is being requested to be reversed and shall stop the door at that moment for a programmable
amount of time. After a sufficient dwell period, the door will reverse direction and continue until
it completely reaches the open or close limit switch. This dwell time shall be programmable.
Sequencing Groups of Doors - When more than one door at a time is being unlocked, then the
doors shall be sequenced such that no two doors simultaneously load the power supply. For
solenoid type doors, this period of time is during the inrush of the solenoid, for motorized locks
this period of time is until the lock has completed its cycle, and for sliding doors this period of
time is one fourth of its cycle time. For locks that require power to lock, the PLC shall also
sequence the locking action. In any case, the system must be programmed to handle all
emergency and group unlocking without failure of the available power supply.
Door Breaches, Openings and Closings - Each controlled and monitored door shall be configured
to have the ability to alarm or have a “Breach Alarm”. A violation occurs when a door is opened
and/or unlocked by some means other than the PLC. If Harris County determines that a specific
door not Breach, then that door shall be configured to either display status only or to display
status and to sound a short warning. All Breaches, Breach silencing, Breach resetting, changes of
state of door switches, doors securing, and doors becoming unsecure shall be recorded separately
to the Reporter/Logger system.
Door Switch Debounce - Logic must be programmed into the PLC so that the door must be secure
for a sufficient amount of time to avoid a switch-bouncing problem. This time must be able to be
configured.
Emergency Evacuation - Any door shall be configured to be part of any emergency evacuation
group. When Emergency Evacuation is activated for the group then each door in the group will
unlock as explained in Sequencing Groups of doors.
Group Unlocking - Any door shall be configured to be part of any group for group unlocking and
locking. Doors selected to the group mode shall be show with a blue outline around the door
icon. Selecting the Group Unlock icon and then the ON icon will open only the doors
Page 40 of 61
SPECIFICATIONS (CONTINUED)

3.
selected to that group. Doors can be removed from the assigned group by re-selecting them,
while in the group define mode, which will toggle the blue outline around the door icon to the off
state.
l. Isolate - Any door shall be configured to be isolated. Isolating a door keeps that door from being
unlocked. Isolate doors, have a Yellow “X” on the icon. Any isolation or removal of isolation
for a door shall be recorded to the Reporter/Logger.
m. Shunt – Any door shall have the ability to be shunted. Shunting a door prevents the door from
causing a breach alarm when opened in a means other than through the PLC. Selecting the Shunt
function button will cause a flashing green outline to appear around door candidates. Selecting a
door to shunt will cause the flashing green outline to become steady around the door icon.
n. Interlocks - Where two or more doors with electric hardware form a sallyport or where interlocks
between hardware sets are indicated on the plans or specs, or will be specified by Harris County
or engineer at the time of graphic panel submissions, the operation of the individual hardware sets
shall be as follows: The controls will allow only one of the hardware sets to be in the nonsecured condition at any given time unless the interlock override function is activated. These
doors shall be indicated on the screen with a yellow outline around the door icon. The officer
must press the interlock override pushbutton prior to unlocking a door to defeat the interlock.
Logic shall also be incorporated such that the interlocks cannot be defeated by pressing two door
pushbuttons simultaneously on the graphic panel or touchscreen.
Communications Control - Communications control shall be integrated with the touchscreen controls
to operate in the following manner. Each touchscreen shall have its own dedicated intercom
amplifier. Systems that share a common intercom amplifier and/or intercom buss and show BUSY,
when in use, will not be accepted.
a. Intercom Communications - Communicating to an intercom staff station location from a control
location shall cause a PLC output to energize a sound card relay and connects the talk-back
amplifier to the sound card's audio bus while also placing the control station's audio speaker onto
the talk-back amplifier's speaker output. The control location then automatically monitors the
intercom location. When the control officer presses push to talk, then the intercom staff station
speaker shall be able to hear the control officer. Control stations shall be able to call other control
stations utilizing the existing talk back amplifier configuration.
b.. Paging - Page zone selection shall be configurable. Each intercom staff station shall be
configurable to be included in any paging zone. The system shall have the ability to monitor
paging speakers as well as staff stations.
c. Isolate - Any intercom staff station can be configured to be isolated in software. When the
pushbutton on an isolated staff station is pressed, then the audible annunciation at the officer's
control station shall automatically be suppressed for that station. Visual annunciation, though,
shall occur at the officer's control station. Isolate intercom stations shall have a yellow “X” on
the intercom icon.
d. Spot/Assessment Monitor - When communications are established with a staff station, the camera
in the area around the staff station shall be displayed on the Spot/Assessment Monitor. When
communications are terminated, the Spot/Assessment Monitor will display the last camera
viewed. The cameras that are displayed shall be configurable for each alarm.
Video Control - Video control shall be integrated with the touchscreen controls to operate as an
integrated HMI system.

Software Operation
1.
Functions - The touchscreen consists of a combination of icon icons and function icons. The icons
are; the door icon, the intercom icon, the camera icon, the page icon, utilities icon and group icons.
The function icons include unlock, stop, Hold open, isolate, utilities, interlock override, emergency
evacuation, disable panel, silence, and reset. Pressing any of these icons will result in the DVS
announcing the action performed.
2.
Door Control - Pressing the Door Icon without a menu active will result in the act of locking the
door. Unlock, Hold Open, Stop, Local Access, and isolate are menu functions that act with two
keystrokes to make the door operate. Two keystroke operations for unlocking a door are critical so
that doors cannot accidentally be unlocked. The keystrokes required to open an overhead door are
the same. The officer will first press the Unlock icon in the Door Control menu area which will
cause the DVS to announce "unlock"; then within 3 seconds, press the door icon on the graphic at the
location of the door and the DVS will announce the actual name of the door as defined by Harris
County. The door will become unlocked. Other doors may be unlocked by pressing other door icons
within 3 seconds of the first. After 3 seconds of no icon depressions, or when another menu function
is selected, or the Reset icon is pressed, the Unlock (or other command) cancels. After the door has
unlocked for a specified amount of time, it will then relock automatically. To stop the motion of an
overhead, door, the officer will press the STOP icon and the door icon.
Using the Hold Open feature will unlock the door and keep it electrically unlocked until the officer
presses the door icon only. The respective menu icon is illuminated during the 3-second selection
process.
a. Door Control Indicators: The door icon and a Door Status Icon are located on the graphic at each
controlled door. The Door Status Icon is a graphical representation of the door. A swinging door
depicts the door swing displays as secure, in mid travel, or fully open.
The door icon is gray and the Door Status Icon is gray outlined and is shown closed when the
door is locked and secured.
The door icon is red and the Door Status Icon is gray outlined and is shown closed when the
door is powered but the lock status switch, the bolt position switch, and the door position
switch are still indicating that the door is secure.
The door icon is red and the Door Status Icon is red and is shown open when then door is
powered and open.
The door icon is gray and the Door Status Icon is red and is shown open when then door is not
powered but is open.
The Door Status Icon flashes red and shows the current status of the door if the door is
violated or opened manually.
b. Interlocked Doors are bordered around their icons in yellow when a door in a designated interlock
group is unsecured. If an interlocked door is attempted to be unlocked, an Information Dialog
box will appear indicating the door cannot be opened because of the interlock condition.
c. The Reporter/Logger records to disk all openings, unlocking, re-locking, secure actions, door
position, lock status, violations, violation silencing, violation resetting, interlock violations, and
resetting of interlock violations.

Isolate Door - Electrically controlled doors, or doors that are also controlled by field-mounted
keypads or proximity card readers, can be isolated such that they cannot be opened. The officer first
selects door isolate and then presses the door icon. The door icon will be displayed with a yellow
“X” on the icon. Other doors may be commanded to become isolated by pressing other door icons
within 3 seconds of the first. After 3 seconds, the door isolate command cancels. Repeating the
process on an Isolated Door reverses the condition and returns the door to normal control.
a. Door Isolate Indicators: The door icon will have a yellow "X" marked through it indicating that
the door cannot be unlocked. Violations and the Door Status Icon will still be shown.
b. Attempting to unlock an isolated door will cancel the command and the door will remain locked.
c. Isolated Doors are reported by the Reporter/Logger during daily reports. Changing the state of
Isolated Doors is recorded to disk.
Communicate - Establishing audio communications from the control panel is accomplished by simply
pressing the Intercom icon at the location of the intercom station. There shall be an Intercom icon for
each intercom or staff station. The audio is now connected to the remote station and the Intercom
icon is yellow. The video of cameras viewing that area are now shown on the Spot/Assessment
Monitor(s), and audio is established; while the camera symbols that cover that intercom station are
now cyan. If no camera is viewing that location, audio will be connected without video. Repeating
the operation will cancel the call. Connecting to another station will automatically cancel the
previous connection. Pressing the Press-to-Talk allows the officer to talk to the station.
a. The Intercom icon is used to show the state of the intercom call.
If the call button, located on the staff or inmate intercom station, is pressed, and the call has
not been acknowledged, the Intercom icon flashes yellow and the DVS will sound a digitized
tone until the call is connected.
If the call has been answered, the Intercom icon will be solid yellow, and all cameras called
up to follow the intercom will be solid cyan. If another call is incoming while the first is
being serviced, that Intercom icon flashes and the DVS will softly annunciate the ringing
tone.
b. The Reporter/Logger records any intercom call activity, including when the call was placed and
answered.
Video - Establishing video (CCTV) communications from the control screen is accomplished by
pressing the Video icon. Pressing the Video icon on the control screen at the location of the camera
will cause the icon to be solid cyan and the CCTV image to be displayed on the Spot/Assessment
Monitor(s). Pressing a different Video icon will cause that camera to be active and will cancel any
others.
a. The cyan Video icon on the Reporter/Logger shows the location of the camera.
b. The Reporter/Logger shall record to disk all video activities.
Paging - This feature allows the officer to select which paging zones are connected for a subsequent
paging operation. The officer will first press the Page icon on the screen which will open the paging
channel for one-way communication.
Isolate Intercom - This feature allows the officer to shut off an intercom station so no audible
incoming calls are received. An active intercom station is shown as a solid on yellow icon. An

Isolated intercom station is still accessible by the officer via the Intercom and Audio features. An
Isolated intercom still visually annunciates. Only the ringing chime is suppressed.
a. Intercom isolate Indicators: The Intercom icon shall have a yellow "X" marked through it
indicating that the intercom station has been isolated.
b. The Reporter/Logger shall record to disk all communications Isolate activities.
Call Window – The lower portion of the touchscreen shall be allocated and used as the Intercom
Queue, Active window and Alarm Queue window. Each window shall be allocated and used for the
purpose of making the communications task easy for the operator. The Intercom Queue window
shall contain the text names of at least 5 incoming pending calls, the Active window contains the text
name of the active intercom call, Zoom icon and Unlock and Cancel icon for the active call. This
window pertains to every call assigned to the touchscreen station and is not exclusive to the intercom
stations shown on the current active screen. This window will allow the operator to answer calls
without having to go to a particular screen unless it is desired to do so.
a. Intercom Queue - The list of 5 incoming pending calls designated for the particular touchscreen
station shall show Harris County-assigned text names for the oldest five pending calls that have
not been answered and in the order that they were initiated. As a call is answered, it shall be
removed from the list and the list shall be automatically updated with any new incoming calls. If
there are no pending calls, this list shall be blank. All incoming calls shall be logged into the
Intercom Queue. None shall be lost. The Total Call window will show the number of current calls
waiting for response.
b. Call Answer icon - Each time this icon is touched, the active station will automatically cancel and
the first station on the pending list will automatically connect.
c. Zoom Active icon - When this icon is touched, the touchscreen will automatically go to the screen
where the answered intercom station is located.
d. Unlock icon – When communication is established with a calling intercom station, touching the
Unlock icon will unlock the respective door as long as all logic rules are met.
e. Call Cancel icon - When this icon is touched, the active intercom call is disconnected.
Key Map Screen – The Site screen on each touchscreen shall be allocated and used for the purpose of
making screen movement tasks easy for the operator. This window shall contain the whole site plan.
All screens shall be accessible with one touch of the site plan such that any screen can be accessed
from any other screen with just one touch of a screen's outlined area on the site plan of the Screen
Zoom icons in the navigation panel. Each control screen shall be graphically outlined on the Zoom
Window.
a. Area Window - Pressing an outlined area of the site plan shall cause the touchscreen to go
directly to the screen that controls the touched area. A distinctive audible sound shall annunciate
when this action is performed.
b. Location Indicator - The area containing the Screen Zoom icons shall highlight the current map
view so that the operator knows exactly what screen is active in relation to the whole facility.
The other areas shall be gray unless pending calls or alarms are active as explained by the
Pending Call Indicator and the Alarm Indicator.
c. Pending Call Indicator - When calls are pending from areas other than the current screen, and
these calls are defined to be answered at a particular touchscreen station, the area of the call shall
flash yellow on the Screen Zoom icons. If both an alarm and a pending call are active at the same
time in an area, then the respective area shall flash red.

person knew or should have known, of any change that materially affects the provision of coverage of any
person providing services on the project; and
(7)
Contractually require each person with whom it contracts, to perform as required by paragraphs (1) - (7), with
the certificates of coverage to be provided to the person for whom they are providing services.
J.
By signing this contract or providing or causing to be provided a certificate of coverage, the Contractor is representing to
the governmental entity that all employees of the contractor who will provide services on the project will be covered by
workers' compensation coverage for the duration of the project, that the coverage will be based on proper reporting of
classification codes and payroll amounts, and that all coverage agreements will be filed with the appropriate insurance
carrier or, in the case of a self-insured, with the commission's Division of Self-Insurance Regulation. Providing false or
misleading information may subject the contractor to administrative penalties, criminal penalties, civil penalties, or other
civil actions.
K.
The Contractor's failure to comply with any of these provisions is a breach of contract by the contractor which
entitles the governmental entity to declare the contract void if the Contractor does not remedy the breach within ten (10)
days after receipt of notice of breach from the governmental entity.
