4 Bidders Beat ENI 'Winning' Wi-Fi Bid

The state Education Department received 10 bids for its controversial high school WiFi contract — and four bids were less expensive than the winning bid. Education Networks of America‘s price tag — $2,111,655 for the first year, $10,558,275 over five years — was by no means the most expensive bid for the project. But a Twin Falls company, Tek-Hut Inc., submitted two bids that beat the Nashville, Tenn.-based company on price. Tek-Hut was the low bidder on the project, according to documents obtained by Idaho Education News on Wednesday under the state’s Public Records Act. The Education Department released the “scoring documents” used by the nine-person review committee, which voted unanimously to award the WiFi contract to ENA/Kevin Richert, The EDge, IdahoEd News.
