    establish a National Individual Standing offer to Honeywell
    Limited for the installation, service and integration of new
    components for on-site hardware, software maintenance and
    upgrades to all previously installed and existing security
    systems as required. The firmware and software associated to the
    EBI Security Management and Digital Video Manager systems used

    company capable of providing this requirement.
    
    Technical Requirements
    
    All new components must be fully integrated with the existing
    security system. The existing EBI and Matrix security systems

    both systems, and possessing the proprietary rights to the
    Security Management and Digital Video Manager systems and the
    firmware and software associated with the EBI security system,
    Honeywell is the only capable organization to integrate, expand
    and upgrade NCR's security System. The EBI Security Management
    and Digital Video Manager products are proprietary products of
    Honeywell and as such, they are marketed and sold solely by
    Honeywell
    
    All security cameras, access control equipment and
    alarm-monitoring equipment must be capable of integrating  and
    communicating via TCP/IP protocol across the NCR security
    network to the Honeywell EBI security system.
    
    All EBI security server engineering, programming and
    documentation required for interfacing the compatible field
    products into the NCR EBI security database, must be consistent
    with the existing security strategy, firmware, software and
    architecture.
    
    All engineers and technicians required to work on the existing
    field products must posses a minimum of five (5) years
    experience working with the EBI Security system. Engineers and
    technicians must be capable of supporting both existing security
    databases and existing security products (ie EBI Security
    Management and Digital Video Manager systems)
    
    Card technology must have the capacity to read information from
    the issued access card on both the existing Matrix reader and
    the new HID readers.
    
    Applicable Trade Agreements and Obligations

    (WTO), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) the
