There are several opportunities for vendors to participate in the NWIESC Regional RFP’s, bids or formal quotes NWIESC works hand-in-hand with the NIESC to provide these services.
Local Requests for Proposals, bids or formal quotes: Using information from participating school corporations, NIESC develops specifications, advertises, publishes, reviews, and tallies all RFP’s. The results are then taken to the school member evaluation committees for scoring and evaluation. Some of the most recent local RFP’s, bids or formal quotes that NIESC has conducted are: Fire Safety Equipment, Waste Removal/Recycling, Cafeteria Food and Supplies, USDA Commodities, Bakery and Dairy Bids and cafeteria Milk Coolers. The NIESC Governing Board then awards the proposals bids or quotes to the most responsive and responsible vendor for each school corporation. Districts are then encouraged to take the bids to their local boards to approve.
