PURPOSE: Purpose of this bid is to establish firm prices and a source of supply for furnishing and delivering Metal Office Furniture to be purchased by Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) for the period from date of award through October 31, 2022. 2. RENEWAL: Upon written mutual agreement between Contractor and Duval County Public Schools, contract may be renewed at anniversary date for two additional one-year periods, subject to the same provisions, terms, conditions, specifications, and prices as originally awarded. 3. AWARD: Will be by item or all-or-none group, as indicated on the Bid Proposal Form. All items within a group must be bid for an all-or-none award. Note that this is a source of supply bid; all items in a group will not necessarily be ordered at one time. For purposes of evaluation, this form will be interpreted as follows: Unit price: Unit price should be numeric. Unit prices left blank will be deemed no bid, and a unit price of $0 will be deemed included at no charge. Item Bid: Item bid should be the manufacturer & model # or name of product you will supply if awarded. If left blank or as specified is entered the item will be considered to have insufficient information to evaluate. Failure to respond as requested may result in rejection of item(s) as non-responsive. 4. BID EVALUATION PROCESS: Bids are initially reviewed for determination of compliance with submittal requirements as found in the bid instructions. Those bids that are non-compliant are removed from consideration and are not included on the bid tabulation. Examples of non-compliant bids are: bids that do not bear the signature of an individual authorized to obligate on behalf of the company; bids submitted with line items corrected by the use of correction fluid (only the corrected items are considered non-compliant); bids submitted with line items that are correct but not initialed by the originator (only the corrected items are considered non-compliant); any bid submitted that contains a material deviation from the bid submittal instructions. Tabulated bids are then evaluated on the basis of price. The lowest price bid will be evaluated to determine responsiveness. If the bid is responsive, it will be recommended for award. If the bid is not responsive, it will not be recommended for award and the next lowest price bid will be evaluated to determine responsiveness. This process will continue in succession until the lowest responsive bid is evaluated and is recommended for award. If the bid contains multiple items that are to be awarded independently, this process is completed for each item in the bid. Tie bids are decided by tie breaking procedures outlined in purchasing policy. 5. PURCHASES: Award does not constitute an order. Before any shipments can be made, the vendor must receive a School District Purchase Order, or a Procurement Card Authorization. 6. POSTING OF BID RECOMMENDATION: Recommendation for Award will be posted in Purchasing Services on or about August 23, 2021 and will remain posted for 72 consecutive hours.
