Agenda Purpose & RFP Information Key Dates Proposal Preparation & Evaluation Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises Question and Answer Session
Purpose of the RFP The purpose of this RFP is to select a vendor that can satisfy the State, K12, and local entities need for MRO product purchases on a statewide basis. It is the intent of the State to contract with a vendor(s) that provide the State, K12, and local entities who elect to purchase through the resulting contract, products and services as specified within this RFP, at a competitive price.
RFP Information While K12 and local entity participation in State contracts and QPAs is not mandatory, the overarching goal of the K12Indiana and OneIndiana 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 vendor(s) without having to participate in additional RFP processes individually with these entities.
RFP Information The goal is to address State, K12 and local entity needs with 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 discount from Respondent’s list price on all the different product categories. General Industrial Products Commercial, Custodial, and Floor Cleaning Products Lamps and Ballasts Paper Products & Dispensers Plumbing Products Total $5,528,945$513,624$694,913$317,521$650,797$7,705,800

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
Proposal Preparation Buy Indiana, Business Proposal 2.3.14 – Status shall be finalized by proposal due date – 5 definitions, details provided in Business Proposal 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 an employee, then they only commit 20% of his or her time to the Indiana contract. Therefore this employee is only worth 0.2 FTE, not 1.0. – When completing multiple IEI forms, there should be no overlap of an FTE across categories and forms. For example, if one FTE will be supporting three product categories, the reported FTE for each category and form should be 1/3 FTE.
