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 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!

Question: RFP 3-177-17 Website Services, Programs, and Products - What are the specifics of the website software & services?
