05-22-2012 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #14

Purchasing Bids, RFPs, RFQs, and Sales & Services Agreements


The Office of Purchasing Services prepares and distributes invitations to bid, requests for proposals or qualifications, at the requests of schools and departments.  Purchasing staff then tabulates, facilitates the review and selection, and prepares one of the following three recommendations:

  1. award to the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder(s),
  2. approval of selection committee ranking of firms and to contract(s) with the top-ranked firm(s) or next ranked firm(s) if parties cannot reach agreement, or
  3. reject all submittals due to cost, non-compliance with specifications, or other factors. 

If the lowest bid is not recommended, justification must be provided by  staff as to why the bidder(s) did not meet the definition of responsive and responsible within the solicitation.   

Requests for proposals or qualifications recommendations will be developed by a cross functional selection committee that evaluates proposals based on the criteria outlined in the solicitation document.

Attached are the summaries and/or recommendations for the approval of Invitation to Bids, Request for Proposals, Request for Qualifications, and Sales & Services Agreements. Detailed information, including bid tabulations or ranking of firms may be obtained by contacting The Office of Purchasing Services.
