Time is short to get new elevator maintenance agreements in place

Customers are running out of time to get new elevator work agreements in place under the new Conveyance Maintenance and Repair contract (#00713). The expiring Conveyance Maintenance and Repair contract (#01507) has been running concurrently with its successor. All work agreements under the old contract will terminate March 31 when it officially expires.

To avoid a break in elevator maintenance service, agencies should have a new agreement in place with a vendor before the end of the month.

Many agencies have already awarded a vendor in second-tier solicitations under the new contract, and several others are working on solicitations. A sample second-tier bid document, available from Enterprise Services, offers step-by-step guidelines.

Agencies also have the option to explore their eligibility for a "direct buy" selection of a vendor. Eligibility for direct-buy vendor selection is based on documentation by the customer agency of conveyance-maintenance expenditures of less than $10,000 in the most recent full fiscal year. The expenditure figure used for direct-buy eligibility does not include major repairs or major projects that fall outside the scope of covered maintenance in contract #00713 or any work agreement between a customer agency and vendor.

Customers statewide have two vendors – Kone Inc. and Otis Elevator – to choose from in a direct-buy selection or compete in second-tier bidding. Eltec Systems offers a third potential contractor for customers in King and Snohomish counties.

Questions about the new contract, direct-buy procedures or the WebEx training can be directed to Bart Potter, (360) 407-9431.

Enterprise Services reaches agreements with light bar vendors; contract should be activated soon

The contract is expected to be open for use by customers by the end of March, after which more information will be published. For immediate questions contact Enterprise Services Contract Administrator Steve Hatfield, (360) 407-9276.

Price adjustment for ammunition

Dooley Enterprises, Inc. has been allowed a pass-through price adjustment on the Ammunition contract (#03210), effective March 13, 2015. Increases will apply only to handgun ammunition Item 13, Winchester USA 180-grain FMJ, and Item 17, Winchester 100-grain non-toxic frangible.

Updated pricing is available on the pricing and ordering page on the contract website. For questions, contact Contracts Specialist Melanie Williams, (360) 407-9399.

State changes procurement policies based on stakeholder feedback

As part of efforts to continually refine and improve procurement policies, Enterprise Services sent out a communication inviting feedback to the proposed changes to the sole source contracting policy and the agency contract reporting policy.

Based on stakeholder feedback, changes to the changes to DES-140-00 – Sole Source Contracts and the DES-210-01 – Agency Contract Reporting have now been implemented.

Managed Print Services rebid update and reminder of availability for other print management contracts

The following is a status update on the current rebid of the Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) Managed Print Services contract (#02012), along with information on the other two master contracts that Washington State agencies presently have available to meet their printing needs: the WSCA Multi-Function Copiers & Related Software contract (#07912) and Digital Print and Copy Services (contract (#03013):

Rebid Update - Managed Print Services (MPS) contract (#02012):

  • This is a current WSCA-NASPO master contract, effective through Aug. 31, 2015.
  • The state of New Mexico, along with Washington State and WSCA-NASPO, is currently rebidding the contract with the goal of having it in place by Sept. 1, 2015; however, there is an optional 12 months extension remaining, if needed, to accommodate each state’s Participating Addendum (PA) negotiation and a more fluid transition from one contract to another.
  • Any Statement of Work (SOW) for Managed Print Services (MPS) that is complete or in progress under Contract 02012 is effective based on the term established in the SOW. At the completion of the term, agencies will use the current contract in place at that time for their new SOW.

Contract 07912 for Multi-Function Devices Equipment:

  • This is a current WSCA-NASPO master contract, effective through March 31, 2015. It is anticipated this contract will be extended to accommodate each state’s Participating Addendum (PA) negotiation.

A new WSCA-NASPO contract to replace this one was competitively bid and awarded by the state of Nevada. Nevada has completed the negotiation with all awarded vendors. Seven manufacturers: (1) Canon U.S.A., Inc, (2) Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., (3) Hewlett Packard, (4) Sharp Electronics Corporation, (5) Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc., (6) Ricoh Americas Corporation, and (7) Xerox Corporation were awarded Master Agreements by Nevada. DES is currently negotiating PAs with all awarded vendors. The new Washington contract number is 05214.

  • This contract is for the purchase, lease, or rental of equipment only. Managed Print Services are not available on this contract.

Contract 03013 for Digital Print & Copy Services

  • This is a current WSCA-NASPO contract led by the state of Utah, effective through March 31, 2016.
  • Utah will begin the rebid process in early summer of 2015.
  • Agencies may use this contract for small printing and binding jobs following the guidelines in the contract.

Each state agency will need to determine which contract best meets their agency’s printing needs. Enterprise Services staff are available to assist with any questions agencies may have in regard to the creation of their SOW for MPS. DES will communicate any further updates via the Bi-Weekly Broadcast.

Questions may be directed to Contracts Specialist Neva Peckham, (360) 407-9411.

Back to the top.

 

Food Umbrella contract (#06006) A1 & A3 Frozen, Chilled, Canned & Bulk may be extended

Enterprise Services is considering extending the current Food Umbrella contract (#06006), segment A1&A3, frozen, chilled, canned & bulk for 12-month term from March 21, 2015 to March 20, 2015, or until a replacement contract is solicited and awarded, whichever occurs first. All other terms, conditions, technical specifications, and pricing remain unchanged. Enterprise Services is aware that surpassing the maximum term is not a common practice. However, due to the complexity of the rebid and the requirement for no lapse of food service, it is in the state's best interest to extend the current contract. If you have questions contact Contracts Specialist Mark Roush, (360) 407-9311.

Minor Procurement Policy Revisions being recommended

In response to agency feedback, Department of Enterprise Services (DES) is recommending the following revisions to existing procurement policies and guidelines. Unlike laws and rules, a key advantage of procurement reform is the ability to continually refine and improve upon policies and guidelines.

All DES Procurement Policies:

  • All sections have been numbered for easier reference.
  • All policies include revision dates.
  • All policy Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) have been combined and linked to a single FAQ webpage making it easier for DES to continually update.

DES-140-00 - Sole Source Contracting (Proposed changes highlighted in yellow)

  • Add two more exemptions:
    • 19) Mass media services (e.g. newspapers, journals, television, radio, or billboards) only when no comparable competition exists for reaching the target audience with the intended media type.
    • 20) Used goods to include equipment, vehicles and furniture only when no comparable competition exists.

DES-210-01 – Agency Contract Reporting (Proposed changes highlighted in yellow)

  • Refined language and reporting requirements to prevent inadvertent release of personal information.
  • Revised to provide improved clarity.

Please visit the Draft Policies/Guidelines under review webpage to view the proposed revisions to DES-140-00 - Sole Source Contracting and DES-210-01 – Agency Contract Reporting. If you have any comments on the proposed changes, please email them to DESProcurementReform@des.wa.gov by Jan. 30, 2015.
