Below are the comments on the 6 purchases.

1. 12 Linux workstations for annual refresh (AFS funding)

Purchased and onsite

2. 15 Windows workstations for annual refresh (AFS funding)

Was part of purchase number 1 but will most likely not be done.  We are
working with AGO to see what the mistake was as we called out 27
workstations.

3. Supplemental drives (CP funding)

On site.

4. 1 high end Linux workstation for development (STI funding)

NOAALink rejected the procurement as we did not use the BPA.  We would need
to submit now if money is available.

5. Supplemental SSD drives to hold research databases ($14K STI funding)

We are tracking this down to determine if the award was done.  Hoping to
have more details tomorrow.

6. Blade servers (CP funding)

On site.
