BID SPECIFICATIONS

I.    INSTRUCTIONS

These bid specifications accompany all contracts for supplies, services and construction for the Board of Education for ACES.  (The District and its Board of Education are collectively referred to herein as the "Owner".)

Certain of these specifications will apply only to certain types of contracts, as will be apparent from the content.

The Owner has provided information about the contract on the Cover sheet.  This bid Specifications may also be accompanied by other contract documents depending on the type of contract.  Bidders should review those carefully and include with their bid any additional sheets that are to be filled out, including alternates and unit prices.

The Owner is exempt from the payment of Federal Excise Taxes and Connecticut Sales and Use Tax.  These taxes must not be included in bid prices nor added to any items specified.

II.  BIDDING PROCEDURE

Bids will be accepted until the date and time indicated on the Cover Sheet.

In the interest of the environment, bids must be sent electronically.

Any bid may be withdrawn prior to the scheduled bid opening as indicated on the specification Cover Sheet, or prior to an authorized postponement date thereof.

Any bid received after the date and time specified on the specification Cover Sheet for receipt of the bid or an authorized extension thereof, will not be considered.

If the Cover Sheet indicates that bid security is required, each bid must be accompanied by a certified check or cashier's check drawn upon a bank to the order of Area Cooperative Educational Services, or the bid must be accompanied by a bid bond, having as surety one or more surety company or companies authorized to do business in the State of Connecticut.  No certified check or cashier’s check on hand will be returned until the bid is awarded.  If you are awarded the bid, your check will be held until it is replaced with performance and payments bonds.

No bidder may withdraw its bid for a period of 60 days following the actual time of bid opening.

Any questions by bidders must be submitted in writing, not orally.  If appropriate the Owner will respond by Addenda via our web site.

III. REVIEW AND AWARD OF BID

The Owner will make a determination of whether a bidder is responsible based on the following criteria:

  • The bidder has been in the business of providing the equipment, technical support and service specified on the “Minimum Specifications for RFP” for a minimum of five (5) years.
  • The bidder is able to provide technical support by telephone twenty–four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days a week for support of the equipment specified.
  • The bidder shall have a minimum of three (3) service technicians, located in the state of Connecticut, available during regular business hours to service the equipment specified. If the service technicians are not employees of the successful bidder than the successful bidder shall identify the service technicians by company that employs them and shall give references of services performed in public schools by the third party service technicians.
  • The bidder shall provide four (4) references of both public and private sector clients for whom they have provided equipment and/or service similar to that which is specified in this bid document in the last three years. The bidder shall have sold and supported at least 20,000 computers per year for the last five years.

The Owner reserves the right to reject any and all bids.

The Owner reserves the right to negotiate with any bidder prior to award.

The Owner reserves the right to waive any informalities in bids.

The Owner reserves the right to negotiate and award the bid to different vendors for each of the categories of computers:

  • Laptop
  • Non-Touch Desktop
  • Touch Desktop
  • Chromebook
  • Laptop Executive Touch

The Owner may reject any bid deemed non-responsive or conditional.

The Owner may make such investigations as it deems necessary to determine the ability, qualifications and experience of the bidder to perform the work.  The bidder shall furnish to the Owner all such information and data for this purpose as the Owner may request.

If no responsive bids are received, the Owner reserves the right to negotiate with all responsible bidders for the award of the contract.

In the event that only one bid is received, a price and/or cost analysis may be made before the award of the contract.  A price analysis is the process of comparing the bid to other similar procurements.  Where it is impossible to conduct a valid price analysis, it may be necessary to conduct a cost analysis of the bid price.  The single bidder will then be required to provide sufficient information and data so that this analysis can be made.

IV. CONTRACT GENERAL CONDITIONS

Bonds

If this is a construction project the successful bidder will post performance and payment bonds for 100% of the contract price.

Insurance

Prior to the start of work the bidder shall submit to the Owner certificates of insurance in the amounts indicated by the Insurance Requirements Chart attached hereto.  The certificates shall indicate that both "ACES" and "ACES Board of Education" are additional insured under the applicable policies.

Prevailing Wage

If this is a construction project, this contract may be subject to Connecticut General Statutes Sect. 31-53, as amended.  Generally, that statute applies to new construction projects totaling $400,000.00 and over, and repair or rehabilitation projects totaling $100,000.00 and over.  The statute imposes certain wage requirements and reporting requirements on contractors and subcontractors, and carries serious penalties for violation of the law.  If it appears to the Owner that the statute applies to this project, a current listing of prevailing wages is included in the contract documents.  As stated in the statute the contractor will provide the Owner with time records of their employees and their subcontractors' employees who work on the project.

Subcontracting

Unless specifically indicated in the contract documents, no part of the contract may be subcontracted or sub-let without written permission of the Owner.

Cancellation

The Owner reserves the right to cancel the contract for its convenience at any time.  In such event, the contractor's recourse shall be limited to its actual costs and shall in no instance include lost profits or consequential damages or charges related to reputation.

Warranties

All products and work shall be warranted for a period of three years unless a longer period is stated in the contract documents.

If this bid is not for construction, any applicable product or service warranty must be submitted with the bid.  All such warranties shall inure to the benefit of the Owner.

Products, Substitutions and Samples

Unless otherwise indicated, specification references to commercial types, styles, trade names and catalogues are intended to be descriptive only, not restrictive, and indicate to the bidders the type and quality of articles considered satisfactory.  Each bid shall be accompanied by the manufacturer's date covering the item on which the bid is submitted the required information shall be quoted on the specification sheet.  If more space is required, please submit an attachment and reference the item number of the item and a description of the proposed alternate.  If the item differs from the minimum specifications set forth, a letter shall accompany the proposal outlining the variance; otherwise it will be assumed that the proposal conforms strictly to these specifications.  The name and address of the proposed manufacturer must accompany the proposal.  Rights of substitution shall cease upon acceptance of the proposal by the Owner.  In the event there is ambiguity or question as to what type of equipment or material the bidder has proposed, the higher quality item shall be required.

If you propose a substitution you must indicate in your bid substitutions identified by name or catalogue number and the net difference in cost to the Owner.  Listed substitutions will be considered for approval only after the award of the contract; the Owner reserves the right to require the originally specified material or equipment at the price submitted by the bidder in his bid, notwithstanding the fact that the bidder may have based a price for a specific item on a proposed substitution.  In this regard, the Owner shall make its determination made in good faith, on the basis of the quality and type of the article listed. Any benefit in price reduction due to a substitution shall accrue to the Owner.

Wherever an item number is indicated with an asterisk, a sample properly tagged shall be submitted by each bidder before the time of the bid opening.  The tag on the sample shall indicate the item number, and the name of the company submitting the sample.  A double asterisk when shown with an item number requires that a descriptive catalogue cut or other identifying material be submitted for that item.  All samples may be retained by the Owner until bidders are notified to remove them.  The Owner will not be responsible for any equipment samples not picked up within 30 days of the notification to bidders to do so.  Samples of supplies (consumable items) will not be returned to bidders.  Bidders agree that the Owner will incur no liability for samples which are damaged, destroyed or consumed in testing processes.  Samples requested are to be delivered to the Location Address indicated on the Cover Sheet.

Orders will be placed by June 23, 2017 and are expected on site on or before July 21, 2017.

Funding Requirements

Some or all of the contract may be funded by state, federal or other grant programs.  The bidder is advised that such funding programs may include contractual provisions binding on contractors and which may, for example, require audits or certifications under oath that the contractor has not been debarred, suspended or excluded from any publicly funded project or programs.

Time of Performance; Delays

Bidders are advised to examine the contract documents regarding the time of performance.

If this is a construction project the contract documents may indicate an estimated start date and time of completion, and may include liquidated damages for late completion.

If this is a services contract the contract documents may indicate the period of services sought, and may include provisions for renewal.

If this is a contract for the sale of goods, the bid may include the bidder's proposal for how soon products may be delivered and for how long the bid price will remain available.

The commencement or performance of this contract may be delayed due to events which are not the contractor's responsibility.  In such event the contractor shall be entitled to an extension of time but no monetary compensation. However, the successful bidder shall abide by the timelines and delivery dates because it is assumed that the successful bidder has contacted the manufacturer and the manufacturer has agreed to the date and date constraints. Penalties may be assessed if deliveries are not made as agreed to by the owner at the owner’s full and total discretion.

Nondiscrimination Clause

The bidder is required to comply with all provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, Executive Orders 11246, 11375, 11478 and if applicable, the Connecticut Fair Employment Practice Law.

If this is a construction contract, the contractor agrees and warrants that he will make good faith efforts to employ minority business enterprises as subcontractors and suppliers of materials.
