The District issued IFB: 18-32-23 for Off-Site Refueling on May 24th, 2018. It was advertised on May 24th and 31st in the Official Newspaper of the County. The District received 1 bid, 3 no bids, and 19 bid downloads. School Procurement Rule R7-2-1032 states “If only one responsive bid is received in response to an invitation for bids, an award may be made to the single bidder if the school district determines in writing that the bidder is responsible, that the price submitted is fair and reasonable, and that either other prospective bidders had reasonable opportunity to respond, or there is not adequate time for resolicitation”. Price offered is determined to be fair and reasonable. We have been using this vendor in the past and the district has determined it is the best vendor for pricing, quality and availability. When our district sent out a bid for Off-Site Refueling Stations, this was the only company that responded. Our recommendation is to award Bennett Oil for the 2018/19 school year and up to four renewals.

7. Consider approving a REVISED renewal agreement to provide a Child Nutrition Program for Sacred Heart through Prescott Unified School District’s Food Service Program from July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019, as presented.

On June 19, 2018, the Governing Board voted to accept the food contract between PUSD and Sacred Heart. Once approved, it is submitted to ADE for final approval. Although the same contract verbiage was used from last year’s contract, ADE rejected the contract and asked for it to be revised with additional language and clauses. The language and clauses do not change what is going to be provided to Sacred Heart, but makes procedures and practices formal by having them in the contract. Due to ADE rejecting the contract, we need to have the Governing Board vote on the item again.
See attached, the list of revisions and the revised agreement.
