Q: We are a manufacturer of classroom furniture, we do not sell directly to the end user, but we have dealers/resellers that we partner with to sell our product. Therefore, my question is how do we include our resellers in this proposal? Can we add/remove dealers within the duration of this tender, and what is the process?
A: (See Section 1 (D) that refers to the eligibility of “a manufacturer, on a national distributor, or a company with distribution channels broadly scattered….”  If awarded, the dealer can only offer the products or services produced by the manufacturer at the discounts established in the pricing section of the RFP.  Adding or deleting affiliates is up to the awardee.  Also, see section 4 (D) Vendor Profile and Experience Requirements.

Q: Also, other than questions, are there any other details/documents that you require before Sept. 9, 2021, or is the totality of the information required for the RFP needed by the due date of Sept. 23, 2021.
A: No

Q: I am preparing a response to RFP #21-28 and have a question regarding Attachment 5 and how to submit our pricing proposal.
We will be proposing an “across the board” discount from our published catalog and website pricing. Is it acceptable for us to simply state the discount and include a copy of our catalog and website URL?
The alternative would be to provide a spreadsheet listing each line item. The spreadsheet includes 24,000 + line items and is nearly 360 pages. I suspect would be difficult to use.
Please let me know which method you prefer.
A: A statement of catalog discount will be fine. Also, please include a sample of products with pricing for comparison. The complete excel catalog of pricing can be submitted on the digital format sent in with the RFP.
