CapMetro intends to solicit and award a sole source contract to CONDUENT TRANSPORT SOLUTIONS, INC. to provide maintenance and support for a Certified Integrated Vehicle Units (IVUs). CapMetro is seeking to resupply our inventory of Integrated Vehicle Units (IVU) which are part of the Conduent CAD/AVL system.

Conduent is the sole provider of certain custom designed, manufactured and programmed components of the Conduent CAD/AVL system. One of these components is the Integrated Vehicle Unit, IVU. While the IVUs may be refurbished and reused, they also wear out and need to be replaced. This order is to restock the IVU spares inventory.
