QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Amendment # 1
Q1:
“I have a question for you regarding bid 12-5616 horizontal aluminum blinds. Could you give me a
ballpark of number of units & number of orders in past 2-4 years? For example 2010 was 200 units
ordered in a total of 10 orders for a total of $ 15,000
Depending on the past will help determine how would answer some of the questions asked on bid
form. Bali blinds are priced based on quantities ordered (more or less than 15 units in a single
order) or total square footage (more or less than 300 sq ft. in a single order), I will put details in the
bid form. Also, on the bid form it asks about web pricing & ordering options the answers you
provide will help us determine if web options can be made available. I realize any information you
provide is past information and no guarantee on future orders but any information you would be
able to provide would be helpful in filling out the Bidder Response Sheet.”

As a reminder, there shall be no minimum order quantities, or your bid shall be rejected. (See
Section 4.6). Per Section 5.4, “The Contractor must forward all department orders to the
manufacturer within two business days of Department issuance of a purchase order, or a “release”
against a blanket purchase order. The contractor may be required to provide evidence to the
Department that this requirement for order placement has been met, by providing an order
acknowledgement from the manufacturer.”
Therefore, orders may not be held by Contractor until you have 15 units or 300 square feet.
