Enclosure: Waiver Resolution Transportation Services 18-19
File Attachment:
Waiver Resolution - Transportation Services 18-19.pdf
Summary: The District solicited bids for Supplemental Student Transportation Services on two (2) separate occasions, October 11, 2016 and January 10, 2017. The District received no responsive bids pursuant to the competitive bidding procedure set forth in Education and Public Contract Codes. District staff has determined that further attempts to secure responsive bids pursuant to Education and Public Contract Codes will result in the same, as the vendor pool for these types of services is limited in our area.

A resolution is presented waiving further formal bidding requirements for Supplemental Student Transportation Services. Staff is therefore seeking permission to waive further formal bidding procedures through the 2020-2021 fiscal year and be given the authority to negotiate short-term agreements for series by invoice and purchase orders on a case by case basis. Services beyond the 2020-2021 fiscal year will be secured through the formal bidding process. This waiver will allow for efficiency and will benefit our students and community by allowing District Staff to select the most qualified vendors that best fit the District needs.
