Notice to Awarded Vendors
|Awarded contracts have been published on the Current Contracts Tab & Vendors should be getting their award letters & orientation folders in the USPS mail soon. (They have been sent to the person who signed the contracts.)|
* Local and Single State Vendors [with no regional or national capacity] may respond also.
Question: Does a company have to supply or do everything the RFP requests or can they provide only certain services &/or items in the RFP?
Answer: You do not have to provide everything in the RFP. You may respond to the RFP if you only supply some of the items &/or services.
Question: If we were to be awarded a contract, would our authorized dealers be allowed to sell off of our same contract?
Answer: Yes, all of your authorized dealers would be allowed to sell off of your schedule nationally to public agencies & non-taxed, non-profits. The agency/non-taxed, non-profits would basically prepare the Purchase Order referencing the PCA contracted award to the 'Awarded Contractor's Name', along with the PCA contract # & name, and their P.O. number. The authorized dealers normally would have to register at PCA which is free, fast and done at www.pcamerica.org/vendor. A list of these authorized dealers should be sent with your submittal. Other dealers may be added to this list with the 'Awarded Contractor's Name' notifying PCA in writing of any changes.
Question: Can a company offer more than the listed products?
Answer: Yes & please specify pricing for these as well. Also, adjunct products should be listed as 'Value Add' items for additional value to PCA Members.
Question: What are the specifics? (This answer applies to all the RFPs.)
Answer: The best way to describe it is to tell us everything you can do. This is an IDIQ solicitation, which means Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity. Members and Awarded Contractors work together directly; the individual PCA Members will have a specific scope of work and specifications of the services and products they require.
Questions regarding Foreign/ Non-U.S. Companies:
Question: Whether companies from Outside USA can apply for this (like,from India or Canada)?
Answer: PCA Contracts include NAFTA countries (Canada and Mexico) and are reviewed and awarded for PCA Members (non-profit, not-taxed entities such as governmental agencies/entities and educational institutions).
Question: Can we perform the tasks (related to RFP) outside USA (like, from India or Canada)?
Answer: PCA Contracts include NAFTA countries (Canada and Mexico).
