This equipment is ideal for the needs of the Department of Licensing mailroom processing center. This agreement will include one (1) year of maintenance

The contract will be issued on or about the effective date and shall continue for one (1) year and shall continue at the option of the Department of Licensing. The dollar value is estimated at $99,829.44 including tax, shipping and one year of maintenance.
