VENDOR QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

VENDOR QUESTIONS

Student Kindergarten kit identifies Crayola fine tip markers which may not be age appropriate.  Does FMS want to adjust this product to Crayola broad tip markers?

Student 3 – 5 kit identifies Fiskar 5” blunt scissors which is not age appropriate for these grades.  Does FMS want to adjust scissor size to Fiskar’s Big Kid scissor 6” for ages 8+?

Due to closures that may be resulting from New Mexico’s COVID-19 restrictions, please confirm District Office will be able to receive and accept FedEx delivery of sample kit and hard copies of EduKit’s proposal.

DISTRICT ANSWERS

The adjustments proposed in Question 1 and 2 are approved. The delivery issues have been addressed and should be no problem.

VENDOR QUESTIONS

We are working on prices to submit for this bid proposal and have encountered a problem with Crayola Manufacturing. They are currently not producing crayons or any of their normal products.  Because of the “Acts of War” instituted by our President, they are currently manufacturing face masks and other products deemed essential by the federal government. 

DISTRICT ANSWERS

Substitutions will be allowed with District approval.

VENDOR QUESTIONS

Due to current market conditions caused by COVID-19 (in some cases) and SSI not carrying some other items, we may experience difficulty offering some items that are described in the RFP as requiring exact matches. Is there any leeway for offering substitutes in the event the unavailability is not caused by manufacturer shortage? Is there a preferred package for the individual kits (i.e. bag, box, etc)?

DISTRICT ANSWERS

Substitutions will be allowed with District approval. Preference is the supplies be boxed individually.
