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 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 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 vendors without having to participate in additional RFP processes individually with these entities.
RFP Information The goal is to address 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

Cost Proposal Scoring Methodology Price will be measured against the State’s baseline cost for this scope of work. The cost that the State is currently paying or its best estimate will constitute the baseline cost. Cost scoring points will be assigned as follows: Respondents who meet the State’s current baseline cost will receive zero (0) cost points. Respondents who propose a decrease to the State’s current costs will receive positive points at the same rate as bid increasing cost. Respondents who propose an increase to the State’s current cost will receive negative points at the same rate as bid lowering cost. Respondents who propose a 10% decrease to the State’s current baseline cost will receive all of the available cost points. If multiple Respondents decrease costs below 10% of the current baseline, an additional 5 points will be added to the Respondent proposing the lowest cost to the State.
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 the Contract Manager, then they only commit 20% of his or her time to the Indiana contract.
