I have had a few questions come in through email so I wanted to post here also. Q1. Please provide bid documents for the solicitation number mentioned in subject line. A1. You have to come to the pre bite site visit to get the documents. Please read RFP. Q2. I have visited to the pre bide site but not seen any document and details on it . please provide us a submission and full specification details. A2. The pre-bid site is a physical place you will drive to....a building here on my campus. At that point I will give quantities of the items listed in the RFP for each school. To qualify to bid you must visit our facility. Are you able to do that? Q3. Wanted to reach out & see if there were any addendums for this project. I also wanted to see if a plan holders list is available. A3. No addendums. And at the pre-bid site visit I will give a list of equipment needed for each school.

Hello, After reviewing the RFP and the handout you gave yesterday, the PR2200 UPS you requested requires a 30 amp plug . Will your MDF locations have the electrical capability to have a 30 amp plug? If not, then the PR2000RTXL2U will be the one you may need. Can we quote you on the PR2000RTXL2U instead of the PR2200RTXL2U ? Also- the part numbers you listed on the handout for the PR1500 and PR2200 do not exist . Is the PR1500RTXL2U and PR2000RTXL2U okay ? I feel the T needs to be a 2 . Thanks, Katie Smith

Our MDF locations do NOT have 30 amp plugs. Please quote using the part number PR2000RTXL2U. instead of PR2200RTXL2U. And yes, there is a typo on the parts list for the Cyberpower UPS's. The T needs to be a 2. So here are the part numbers for those....PR1500RTX2U and PR2000RTXL2U. Thanks Katie for catching that.

The response deadline is NOT March 23rd at 12 pm as stated in the addendum on this site. The deadline is March 20th at 12 pm. The new RFP has the correct dates.
