SOLE SOURCE NUMBER: B2767

VENDOR: Apple Inc.

ESTIMATED ANNUAL/TOTAL CONTRACT: $35,000,000 / $105,000,000

TERM: 3 Years

OPTIONS: One 2-Year Option

Products and services covered under this agreement will include Apple hardware and software products, Apple accessories, Apple training, and the AppleCare protection plan.  DOE-required customization of Apple products will also be included.  The customization includes etching of computer casings, asset tags, and installation of CompuTrace tracking software.

Apple Authorized Resellers are prohibited from selling Apple products to private or public educational institutions in the United States.  In addition, customization by any party other than Apple voids product warranties.  For these reasons, the DOE must enter into a sole source agreement with Apple in order to purchase these products.  In so doing, the DOE will obtain the best possible pricing from Apple.

The estimated contract amount is based on historical data.  Apple is offering the DOE discounts equal to or greater than those offered to any other educational entity; pricing has therefore been determined to be fair and reasonable.

This Request for Bids (RFB) is to provide School Bus Transportation for school age students with disabilities and other riders citywide. The Office of Pupil Transportation is seeking bids for approximately 4,000 vehicles to provide safe, reliable and efficient transportation services to students. It is anticipated that service will begin for the 2015-2016 school year on or about September 1, 2015. This RFB will result in multiple 5-year requirements contracts.

This RFB is for the transportation between the homes and/or stops and schools of city residents with disabilities and other riders between five and twenty-one years of age attending Educational Programs located within the greater metropolitan area (i.e., the five boroughs of New York City; Westchester, Rockland, Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York; sites in New Jersey; and, sites in Connecticut so long as they are within a 50 mile radius of the City’s boundaries). In addition, this RFB is intended to cover the Board of Education’s requirements for transportation between residential treatment facilities and schools, between schools (within and outside of the City) and field trip destinations (within the City only), from after school programs to home or alternative afternoon drop-off locations, and for such other uses as provided herein. With the 2015-2016 School Year, the DOE intends to construct routes to be performed under this (and other) contract(s) based on a wide variety of students being transported on each vehicle. Accordingly, it is anticipated that any vehicle under this contract might transport any combination of students (students with disabilities whose Educational Programs may or may not designate specific transportation requirements as well as non-disabled students).
