1. Regarding the requirement for a performance bond: Generally, these types of requests are reserved for construction-type opportunities. Can the department please clarify the intent behind the performance bond? Will the department consider removing this all together? 2. Regarding the Performance Standards and Performance Measurement/Evaluation section under Part V: These items are not necessarily listed in the specifications for evaluation, and some cannot be “known” until post-award. Is the performance bond requirement relative to these requirements? 3. Regarding Part IV, Evaluation Criteria: Will the department please provide a copy of the current vendors evaluation? Will the department provide a timeline for how long the scoring will take? 4. Will the department clarify or provide more detail on what is meant by “cellular bundle”? 5. Will the department provide the average daily utilization for each piece of monitoring equipment currently? 6. Can the department share how many of each type of monitoring equipment was considered “lost/damaged” in 2022 and 2023? 7. Will the department provide the current replacement costs per monitoring equipment type? 8. Will the department provide the daily monitoring cost for each type of monitoring equipment currently utilized? 9. Since this is a rental model contract, will the department provide the shelf allowance and lost damaged allowance with the current vendor? 10. Will the department accept a tiered price structure? 11. Like any contract in this industry, there are additional costs associated with electronic monitoring solutions, outside of what is listed in Attachment B. Will the department allow additional tables or a customized pricing sheet to share those costs for consideration with the scoring committee? 12. Does the department expect the vendor to do any additional work outside of providing equipment, customer support, and training?
