Per 4.1 of the RFP, all prices must be typed in ink or typewritten. Does a PDF of a Google Doc suffice?
Imse24800 on 28-Aug-2023 12:05:16 PM CDT
Can a partial bid be submitted, (i.e., for the training but not the software) or is it preferred that a subcontractor for that portion be included?
Imse24800 on 28-Aug-2023 12:06:24 PM CDT
The RFP calls for K-3 training and 4-12 intervention. Our multisensory reading training has two levels (K-2 for phonics-based Orton-Gillingham and 3+ for vocabulary/fluency/comprehension/morphology). We also have a foundational (optional) course in Phonological Awareness. Should all be included in the bid, or only K-2?

Pricing requests daily rate: is this per participant or for a group? What is the expected number of educators to be trained?

According to the RFP, in section 19.0, a "Proposal/Bid Form is necessary to complete" to offer pricing for the project. Is this a form that is provided or we create?
Imse24800 on 31-Aug-2023 2:13:50 PM CDT
When submitting the proposal, the website mandates "information required on the outside of the sealed envelope." Can you please identify what this information is?
Imse24800 on 31-Aug-2023 2:16:01 PM CDT
Our company does not provide interactive reading software for students; our software is designed to help teachers build lessons, differentiate instruction using assessment data, and monitor reading progress. Should we still submit a bid without this element?
SCSDRM on 01-Sep-2023 8:32:51 AM CDT
Please create your own bid form. Please disregard "information required on the outside of the sealed envelope." This was left in by error. The Software is a requirement for your bid to be considered.
