Agenda Purpose & RFP Information Key Dates Differences From Previous Solicitation Evaluation Process Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises Delivery Location Tour
Purpose of the RFP The purpose of this RFP is to select a vendor that can satisfy the State and K12 entities need for office supply and toner purchases on a statewide basis. It is the intent of the State to contract with a vendor or vendors that provide the State and K12 entities, who elect to purchase through the resulting contract, products and services as specified within this RFP at a competitive price.
RFP Information While Other Governmental Bodies’ and K12 entity participation in State contracts and QPAs is not mandatory, the overarching goal of the K12Indiana, OneIndiana, and Library Indiana initiatives is to encourage Other Governmental Bodies and K12 entities to use the price agreement(s) resulting from this RFP. Increased utilization by these entities significantly enhances the business opportunity for the winning vendors without having to participate in additional RFP processes individually with these entities.
RFP Information The goal is to address State agency and K12 entity needs with four focused lists of Market Basket items, which represent the most cost-effective and highest use items. For needs beyond the Market Basket, the State expects a highly competitive net price utilizing a discount from Respondent’s list price on all the different product categories. 1. State Office Supplies 2. K12 Office Supplies 3. State Toner 4. K12 Toner

Differences From Previous Solicitation Cost Scoring Methodology Items/Unit of Measure Submission Requirements Updated Indiana Economic Impact Language/Form Technical Proposal – Additional questions and changes to questions Sample Contract (Attachment B)
Cost Proposal Scoring Methodology Cost scores will be normalized to one another, based on the lowest cost proposal evaluated. The lowest cost proposal receives all of the available points. The normalization formula is as follows: Respondent’s Cost Score = (Lowest Cost Proposal / Total Cost of Proposal) X 30
Indiana Economic Impact Indiana Economic Impact, Attachment C – Definition of FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) – Example: If your company is awarded a contract and all 5 contracts get an equal amount of commitment from the Contract Manager, then they only commit 20% of his or her time to the Indiana contract. Therefore the Contract Manger is only worth 0.2 FTE, not 1.0. – FTE must be performing a commercially useful function by adding value to the scope of work in the RFP – When calculating FTE, only consider state agency business (not K12 or other local government spend) – The state will monitor actual FTE utilization by the awarded vendor against the committed FTE throughout the life of the contract. The awarded vendor will be expected to maintain the committed FTE as a matter of contract compliance. Please review the language in Section L, Number 6 on page 13 of the Master Agreement, Attachment B. – When completing multiple IEI forms by product category, there should be no overlap of FTE across categories and forms. For example, if one FTE will be supporting two product categories, the reported FTE for each category and form should be 1/2 FTE.
