DCPS will select contractors qualified and experienced to provide various EMCS services. Contractors must be qualified to support all current and legacy systems for the manufacturer for which they are bidding. If at any time during the contract term or any renewal period a contractor is deemed not qualified to support an EMCS system for which they are selected, DCPS reserves the right to terminate the contractors agreement. Under this agreement, work described in this RFP may be performed at any school districtwide. 1.2 Objectives o Maintain a healthy, comfortable, productive, effective, efficient building environment for students and staff. o Minimize utility expenditures. o Minimize equipment and system run time. o Extend equipment life. 1.3 General Information about the District: The District and its governing board were created pursuant to Section 4, Article IX of the Constitution of the State of Florida. The District is an independent taxing and reporting entity managed, controlled, operated, administered, and supervised by the Districts school officials. The Board consists of seven elected officials responsible for the adoption of policies, which govern the operation of the District. The Superintendent of Schools is responsible for the administration and management of the schools within the applicable parameters of state and federal laws and regulations, State Board of Education Rules, and School Board policies. The Superintendent is also specifically delegated the responsibility of maintaining a uniform system of records and accounts in the District. The District is coterminous with Duval County, which covers 850 square miles. The FY13-14 budget for the District totaled roughly $1.711 billion, including an operating budget of roughly $1.055 billion and a Page 5 of 43 capital budget of roughly $191 million. The District operates 179 facilities, including administrative areas, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and specialized schools. As approximately the 22nd largest school district in the nation, the District serves 120,000 to 130,000 students (The student population changes annually).

If the contract is not to be renewed, DCPS will issue a written notice to the Contractor not less than 90 days prior to the contract anniversary date. DCPS reserves the right to renew the resulting contracts beyond the final renewal period if deemed in the best interest of DCPS. These additional renewals will be in one year increments, under the same terms and conditions, upon the written consent and agreement of both parties. 1.5 Escalation Provisions: At each contract renewal (not annually), DCPS will consider a price increase of up to 3% provided the proposed increase does not exceed the rate of inflation.
