Midwest Computech was the last of the three finalist left standing.  Kizzire said the contract with the Sedalia-based company appeared to be a cost-saving alternative.  “It would still be cheaper than what we were paying for our total technology budget, at this point in time.  There are still some unknowns that we don’t have a good handle on to be able to give an accurate estimate.”

Some upfront expenses could include new equipment, Kizzire added.  Midwest Computech’s annual contract would cost the district between $110,000 and $111,000.

Board member Dale Vandiver was the lone vote against the technology firm.
