concerning defects and objectionable material must be made in writing and received by the contracting officer at

registered with the Procurement Officer as having downloaded the RFP from the State of Alaska Online Public

Right of Rejection
Offerors must comply with all of the terms of the RFP, the State Procurement Code (AS 36.30), and all applicable

officer may determine the proposal to be a non-responsive counter-offer and the proposal may be rejected.

          are trivial, negligible, or immaterial in nature
          do not reflect a material change in the work or,
          do not constitute a substantial reservation against a requirement or provision,

may be waived by the procurement officer.

The State reserves the right to refrain from making an award if it determines that to be in its best interest.
A proposal from a debarred or suspended offeror shall be rejected.

2.06
Discussions with Offerors
The State may conduct discussions with offerors in order to determine if a proposal is reasonably susceptible for
award in accordance with 2 AAC 12.285. Such discussions between the offeror and the procurement officer or the
Procurement Evaluation Committee (PEC) are permitted to clarify uncertainties or eliminate confusion concerning
the contents of a proposal and which do not result in a material or substantive change to the proposal.

The State may also conduct discussions with offerors for the purpose of clarification in accordance with AS
36.30.240, and 2 AAC 12.290. The purpose of these discussions will be to ensure full understanding of the
requirements of the RFP and proposal. Discussions will be limited to specific sections of the RFP or proposal
identified by the procurement officer. Discussions will only be held with offerors who have submitted a proposal
deemed reasonably susceptible for award by the procurement officer. Discussions, if held, will be after initial
evaluation of proposals by the PEC. If modifications are made as a result of these discussions they will be put in
writing. Following discussions, the procurement officer may set a time for best and final proposal submissions
from those offerors with whom discussions were held. Proposals may be reevaluated after receipt of best and final
proposal submissions.

If an offeror does not submit a best and final proposal or a notice of withdrawal, the offeror’s immediate previous
proposal is considered the offeror’s best and final proposal.

Offerors with a disability needing accommodation should contact the procurement officer prior to the date set for
discussions so that reasonable accommodation can be made. Any oral modification of a proposal should be
reduced to writing by the offeror.

2.07
Prior Experience

           Five (5) year’s experience in full foodservice. Provide at least 3 references.

           Must demonstrate commitment to the contract and honoring the terms of the Randolph-Sheppard Act.

An offeror's failure to meet these minimum prior experience requirements will cause their proposal to be
considered non-responsive and their proposal will be rejected.



2.08
Evaluation of Proposals
The procurement officer, or an evaluation committee made up of the procurement officer and at least three State
employees, will evaluate proposals. The evaluation will be based solely on the evaluation factors set out in Section
SEVEN of this RFP.

After receipt of proposals, if there is a need for any substantial clarification or material change in the RFP, an
amendment will be issued. The amendment will incorporate the clarification or change, and a new date and time
established for new or amended proposals. Evaluations may be adjusted as a result of receiving new or amended
proposals.

                           BACKGROUND INFORMATION

4.01
Background Information
In an effort to expand employment opportunities to people who are legally blind under the terms of the
Randolph-Sheppard and Chance Act, the BEP has been working to obtain Federal and State food service
contracts. Having a teaming partner has helped BEP to bid for contracts since 1996. In October 2000,
and 2001 the Alaska BEP entered into a contract for full food service at the Coast Guard Base in
Ketchikan, and at the Federal Building in Juneau, Alaska. In February and March 2005, the Alaska BEP
entered into a contract for full food service at the Anchorage Federal Building and at Ft. Wainwright
Military Base. Assistance from BEP’s teaming partner provided resources, both in terms of knowledge
and finance, to assist in the acquisition of these contracts.

                                     INDEMNITY AND INSURANCE

Article 1. Indemnification

The Contractor shall indemnify, hold harmless, and defend the contracting agency from and against any
claim of, or liability for error, omission or negligent act of the Contractor under this agreement. The
Contractor shall not be required to indemnify the contracting agency for a claim of, or liability for, the
independent negligence of the contracting agency. If there is a claim of, or liability for, the joint
negligent error or omission of the Contractor and the independent negligence of the Contracting agency,
the indemnification and hold harmless obligation shall be apportioned on a comparative fault basis.
“Contractor” and “Contracting Agency”, as used within this and the following article, include the
employees, agents and other contractor who are directly responsible, respectively, to each. The term
“independent negligence” is negligence other than in the Contracting Agency’s selection, administration,
monitoring, or controlling of the Contractor and in approving or accepting the Contractor’s work.

Article 2. Insurance

Without limiting Contractor’s indemnification, it is agreed that Contractor shall purchase at its own
expense and maintain in force at all times during the performance of services under this agreement the
following policies of insurance. Where specific limits are shown, it is understood that they shall be the
minimum acceptable limits. If the Contractor’s policy contains higher limits, the state shall be entitled
to coverage to the extent of such higher limits. Certificates of Insurance must be furnished to the
Contracting Officer prior to beginning work and must provide for a 30-day prior notice of cancellation,
nonrenewal or material change of conditions. Failure to furnish satisfactory evidence of insurance or
lapse of the policy is a material breach of this contract and shall be grounds for termination of the
Contractor’s services. All insurance policies shall comply with, and be issued by insurers licensed to
transact the business of insurance under AS 21.

Proof of insurance is required for the following:
2.1 Worker's Compensation Insurance; the Contractor will provide and maintain, for all employees of
the Contractor engaged in work under this contract, Worker's Compensation Insurance as required by AS
