July 23, 2015
Q. Can you supply award pricing and winning vendors from the last bid?
A. Refer to 2014 Paper Products RFP Results below. (Please note that items are occasionally purchased from a
non bid vendor if minimums can’t be met or for logistical reasons.)
Q. Based on past ordering history can you tell us about how often orders are placed by
the various schools (weekly, monthly, quarterly or other) and approximately how
many cases of plastic gloves, vinyl gloves, and trash liners are ordered at a time.
A. The ordering frequency varies by school. The Middle and High schools typically
order monthly. The commissary at the Beech St. Elementary School may order more
often as they supply some products to the other 13 Elementary Schools.
The Elementary Schools are satellite operations with limited space. This past school
year they ordered gloves, trays, cutlery kits, and 6 oz food boats as they came from
the same vendor. They usually order monthly or every 3 weeks depending on their
usage and storage capability
Glove orders per school per delivery vary from 2-6 cases depending on the school.
Trash liners were delivered to one location and distributed by the School District
School Food Service drivers.
The volume is greater per order at the Beech St. School commissary due to the
supplying of some items to the elementary schools.
