Administration recommends that Bid No. 22-057 be awarded to All Makes Office Equipment for all principal office furniture and Sheppard’s Business Interiors for office system furniture (excluding the principal offices), all metal filing, and storage units. Bids were solicited to purchase office system furniture, principal office furniture, metal filing, and storage units at Forest Station Elementary School, Pine Elementary School, Bluestem Middle School, Buena Vista High School, and Westview High School as part of the 2018 Bond Project. The District received three (3) bid responses. AOI was non-compliant with the contract price requirements within the bid regarding the office system furniture, metal filing and storage units. Although AOI was compliant with the contract price requirements within the bid regarding the Principal Offices, the bid request states the lowest total overall cost for Principal Offices will be awarded the contract and All Makes Office Equipment submitted the lowest overall total price for Principal Offices. All Makes Office Equipment is non-compliant for office system furniture (excluding the principal offices), metal filing, and storage units for not meeting physical specifications required in the bid. The low compliant bidder was awarded all items within this bid. The total amount awarded to All Makes Office Equipment is $41,678.70 and Sheppard’s Business Interiors is $970,465.79.
