SECTION 1 – DEFINITIONS

The following terms used in this Invitation to Bid (“ITB”), unless the context otherwise clearly requires a different
construction and interpretation, have the following meanings:

1.1       Breach of Contract: The condition of the relationship between the Department and the Contractor which exists
          when the Contractor fails to perform under the terms and conditions of the Contract which may result from this ITB.

1.2       Contractor: The organization or individual providing services to the Department in accordance with the terms of
          the Contract which results from this ITB.

1.3       Department or Owner: The Florida Department of Corrections referred to in this ITB document.

1.4       Desirable Conditions: The use of the words “should” or “may” in this ITB indicate desirable attributes or
          conditions, but are permissive in nature. Deviation from, or omission of, such a desirable feature, will not in itself
          cause rejection of a proposal.

1.5       Material Deviations: The Department has established certain requirements with respect to bids to be submitted by
          bidders. The use of shall, must or will (except to indicate simple futurity) in this ITB indicates a requirement or
          condition from which a material deviation may not be waived by the Department except where the deviation
          therefrom is not material. A deviation is material if, in the Department’s sole discretion, the deficient response is
          not in substantial accord with this ITB’s requirements, provides an advantage to one bidder over other bidders, has a
          potentially significant effect on the quantity or quality of items bid, or on the cost to the Department. Material
          deviations cannot be waived and shall be the basis for rejection of a bid.

1.6       Minor Irregularity: A variation from the ITB terms and conditions which does not affect the price of the bid or
          give the bidder an advantage or benefit not enjoyed by the other bidders or does not adversely impact the interests of
          the Department.

1.7       P-Card: Refers to the State of Florida’s purchasing card program, using the Visa platform.

1.8       Purchase Order: The contract document issued by the Department to the Vendor to procure goods and services.

1.9       Responsible Vendor: A vendor who has the capability in all respects to fully perform the contract requirements and
          the integrity and reliability that will assure good faith performance.

1.10      Responsive Bid: A bid, submitted by a responsive and responsible vendor that conforms in all material respects to
          the solicitation.

1.11      Vendor, Offeror and Bidder: A legally qualified corporation, partnership or other entity submitting a bid to the
          Department pursuant to this ITB.

1.12      Winning or Successful Bidder: The business or entity submitting the lowest responsive bid, meeting all
          requirements of the Department’s ITB.

1.13      Balance Of Line: Balance of line refers to additional items that may be needed by the department. Awards are not
          based on pricing submitted for balance of line items, but bidders must submit pricing for all balance of line items in
          order for their bid to be considered responsive. When balance of line items are listed in a solicitation, the
          department will clearly indicate what items will be considered in the basis for award.

          bid for an alternate item, technical documentation/brochures must be provided to the Department for evaluation
          purposes. An alternate product sample may be required by the Department for review prior to acceptance.

                    bidder’s capabilities to satisfy the requirements of this ITB. Fancy bindings, colored displays, and
                    promotional material are not desired. Emphasis in each bid must be on completeness and clarity of content.
                    In order to expedite the review of bids, it is essential that bidders follow the format and instructions
                    contained in the Bid Submission Requirements (Section 5), with particular emphasis on the Mandatory
                    Responsiveness Requirements.

                    The Department will not consider any additional terms or conditions submitted by a bidder, including any
                    appearing in documents attached as part of a bid response. In submitting its bid, a bidder agrees that any
                    additional terms or conditions, whether submitted intentionally or inadvertently, shall have no force or
                    effect.

                    Bids are due at the time and date specified in the Calendar of Events (Subsection 4.2) at the Department of
                    Corrections, Bureau of Procurement and Supply, 2601 Blair Stone Road, 4th floor, Tallahassee, Florida

                    Subsection 4.1. Bids received late will not be considered. No Department staff will incur responsibility for
                    the inadvertent opening of a bid not properly sealed, addressed or identified.

                    Before award, the Department reserves the right to seek clarifications or request any information deemed
                    necessary for proper review of submissions from any bidder deemed eligible for Contract award. Failure to
                    provide requested information may result in rejection of the response.

          4.3.3     Bid Opening

                    Bids will be publicly opened at the time and date specified in the “Calendar of Events” (Subsection 4.2).

                    the contact person listed in Section 4.1.


          4.3.4     Costs of Preparing Bid

                    The Department is not liable for any costs incurred by a bidder in responding to this ITB, including those
                    for oral presentations, if applicable.

          4.3.5     Disposal of Bids

                    All bids become the property of the State of Florida and will be a matter of public record subject to the
                    provisions of Chapter 119, Florida Statutes.

          4.3.6     Bid Rules for Withdrawal

                    A submitted bid may be withdrawn by submitting a written request for its withdrawal to the Department,
                    signed by an authorized representative of the bidder within seventy-two (72) hours after the bid due date
                    indicated in the Calendar of Events.

                    Any submitted bid that has not been properly withdrawn, shall remain a valid bid for twelve (12) months
                    after the bid opening date.

          4.3.7     Rejection of Bids

                    The Department shall reject any and all bids containing material deviations. The following definitions are
                    to be utilized in making these determinations.

                  4.3.7.1     Material Deviations

                              The Department has established certain requirements with respect to bids to be submitted by
                              bidders. The use of shall, must or will (except to indicate simple futurity) in this ITB indicates a
                              requirement or condition which may not be waived by the Department except where the deviation
                              therefrom is not material. A deviation is material if, in the Department’s sole discretion, the
                              deficient response is not in substantial accord with this ITB’s requirements, provides an advantage
                              to one bidder over other bidders, has a potentially significant effect on the quantity or quality of
                              items bid, or on the cost to the Department. Material deviations cannot be waived and shall be the
                              basis for rejection of a bid.

                  4.3.7.2     Minor Irregularities

                              A variation from the ITB terms and conditions which does not affect the price of the bid or give
                              the bidder an advantage or benefit not enjoyed by the other bidders or does not adversely impact
                              the interests of the Department.

          4.3.8     Bid Inquiries

                    4.3.8.1     The bidder shall examine this ITB to determine if the Department’s requirements are clearly
                                stated. If there are any requirements which restrict competition, the bidder may request, in
                                writing, to the Department, that the specifications be changed. The bidder who requests changes
                                to the Department’s specifications must identify and describe the bidder’s difficulty in meeting
                                the Department’s specifications, must provide detailed justification for a change, and must
                                recommend changes to the specifications. Requests for changes to this ITB must be received by
                                the Department no later than the date shown for written inquiries in the “Calendar of Events.”
Model ITB - Basic Com (01/19/2011)                           Page 9 of 52                           ITB# 10-Lowell-8267
                                A bidder’s failure to request changes by the date described above shall be considered to
                                constitute bidder’s acceptance of Department’s specifications. The Department shall determine
                                what changes to this ITB shall be acceptable to the Department. If required, the Department
                                shall issue an addendum reflecting the acceptable changes to this ITB, and post as stated in
                                Section 5.3.1, in order that all bidders shall be given the opportunity of proposing to the same
                                specifications.

                    4.3.8.2     Any inquiries from bidders concerning this ITB shall be submitted in writing, identifying the
                                submitter, to the individual identified in Section 4.1 of this ITB and must be received no later
                                than the date and time specified in Section 4.2 of the Calendar of Events. (E-mail inquiries are
                                preferred with the bidder following up by mailing or faxing a hard copy.) It is the responsibility
                                of the bidder to confirm receipt of e-mailed and faxed inquiries.

          4.3.9     Cost Discussions

                    Any discussion by the bidder with any employee or authorized representative of the Department involving
                    cost information, occurring prior to bid opening or notice of recommended award, or notice of rejection of
                    all bids, will result in rejection of said bidder’s bid.

          4.3.10    Verbal Instructions

                    No negotiations, decisions, or actions shall be initiated or executed by the Contractor as a result of any
                    discussions with any Department employee. Only those communications that are in writing from the
                    Department’s staff identified in Section 4.1 of this ITB shall be considered a duly authorized expression on
                    behalf of the Department. Only communications from the Contractor’s representative, which are in writing
                    and signed, will be recognized by the Department as duly authorized expressions on behalf of the
                    Contractor.

          4.3.11    No Prior Involvement and Conflicts of Interest

                    The Contractor shall not compensate in any manner, directly or indirectly, any officer, agent or employee
                    of the Department for any act or service that he/she may do, or perform for, or on behalf of, any officer,
                    agent, or employee of the Contractor. No officer, agent, or employee of the Department shall have any
                    interest, directly or indirectly, in any contract or purchase made, or authorized to be made, by anyone for,
                    or on behalf of, the Department or the State of Florida.

                    The Contractor shall have no interest and shall not acquire any interest that shall conflict in any manner or
                    degree with the performance of the services required under this Contract.

          4.3.12    Department of State Licensing Requirements

                    All entities defined under Chapters 607, 617 or 620, Florida Statutes, seeking to do business with the

instructions that describe the required format for bid responses.

5.1       Responsiveness Requirements

          The following terms, conditions, or requirements must be met by the bidder to be responsive to this ITB. Failure to

                    intentionally or inadvertently, shall have no force or effect. Any qualifications, counter-offers, deviations,

                    the bond or other security required by law within the time allowed for filing a bond shall constitute a
                    waiver of proceedings under Chapter 120, Florida Statutes.

          6.1.3     Pursuant to Section 287.042(2)(c), Florida Statutes, a formal written protest must be accompanied by a

          The Department will award the Contract to the lowest responsive bidder in accordance with the General Conditions
          of the ITB Bidder Acknowledgement Form (page 2), paragraph 15, entitled “Awards”. In the event the low cost

          Firm prices shall be bid and shall include all packaging, handling, shipping and delivery charges.

          from multiple vendors, the department shall determine the order of award using the criteria set forth in Rule 60A-

          7.2.2     Termination Because of Lack of Funds

                    In the event funds to finance this purchase become unavailable, the Department may cancel the Purchase Order
                    upon no less than twenty-four (24) hours’ notice in writing to the Vendor. Notice shall be delivered by certified

                    of funds.

          7.2.3     Termination for Cause

                    If any breach of the terms and conditions of the Department’s Purchase Order or any of its incorporated

                    Order upon twenty-four (24) hours’ notice. Notice shall be delivered by certified mail (return receipt
                    requested), by other method of delivery whereby an original signature is obtained, or in-person with proof of
                    delivery. If applicable, the Department may employ the default provisions in Chapter 60A-1, Florida
                    Administrative Code. The provisions herein do not limit the Department’s right to remedies at law or to
                    damages.

          7.2.4     Termination for Unauthorized Employment

                    Violation of the provisions of Section 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act, shall be grounds for
                    unilateral cancellation of the Purchase Order.

7.3       Payments and Invoices

          7.3.1     Transaction Fee

                    The Department of Management Services has instituted a statewide eProcurement System (“System”), with
                    the assistance of a third-party agent, Accenture LLP (“Accenture”). All transactions from this Contract
                    shall be processed through this system. Pursuant to Section 287.057(23), Florida Statutes (2002), a
                    Transaction Fee of one percent (1%) of the total dollar amount of each purchase order shall apply to all
                    purchases from this Contract unless otherwise exempt as indicated in 60A-1.032, F.A.C.. This fee, paid by
                    the Contractor, is not submitted to the department and shall not be added to purchase orders as a separate
                    item.

                    It is the intent of the system to automatically deduct the Transaction Fee from payments to the Contractor.
                    However, this feature is not currently available and Contractors are expected to self-report until a method
                    of automatic deduction is implemented. By submission of these self-reports and corresponding Contractor
                    deposits, the Contractor is certifying their correctness. All such reports and fee deposits shall be subject to
                    audit by the State.

                    The Contractor shall receive a credit for any Transaction Fee paid by the Contractor for the purchase of any
                    item(s) returned to the Contractor through no fault, act, or omission of the Contractor. Notwithstanding the
                    foregoing, a Transaction Fee is non-refundable when an item is rejected or returned, or declined, due to the
                    Contractor’s failure to perform or comply with specifications or requirements of the applicable purchase
                    order or Contract.

                    Failure to comply with these requirements shall constitute grounds for declaring the Contractor in default
                    and recovering reprocurement costs from the Contractor in addition to all outstanding fees.
                    CONTRACTORS DELINQUENT IN PAYING TRANSACTION FEES MAY BE EXCLUDED
                    FROM BIDDING ON DEPARTMENT CONTRACTS.

          7.3.2     The Contractor agrees to submit invoices for compensation for delivery of products in detail sufficient for a
                    proper pre-audit and post-audit thereof. Invoices will be paid upon receipt, inspection and acceptance of
                    product(s).

          7.3.3     Purchasing Card Program

                    The State of Florida has implemented a purchasing card program, using the Visa platform. Upon mutual
                    agreement of both parties, vendors may receive payments via purchasing card in the same manner as other
                    Visa purchases.

                    7.8.2.1          Confidential, Proprietary, or Trade Secret Material

                                     Florida Statutes and Article I, Section 24 of the Florida Constitution, very seriously. If

                                     this solicitation to be confidential, trade secret or otherwise not subject to disclosure

                                     solicitation and must only exclude or redact those exact portions which are claimed confidential,
                                     proprietary, or trade secret. Respondent shall be responsible for defending its
                                     determination that the redacted portions of its response are confidential, trade secret or
                                     otherwise not subject to disclosure. Further, Respondent shall protect, defend, and

                                     secret or otherwise not subject to disclosure. If Respondent fails to submit a Redacted Copy
                                     with its response, the Department is authorized to produce the entire documents, data or
                                     records submitted by Respondent in answer to a public records request for these records.

                                                     TYPE D BUSES


The following specifications are applicable to all Florida Department of Corrections inmate transport buses equipped with air
conditioning. Please note that in all cases, the passenger (inmate) area of the bus is not air-conditioned. Only the driver and
guard’s positions in the front of the bus is air-conditioned.

This section is divided into three parts. Part 1 covers Performance Specifications; Part 2 covers Specific Equipment Requirements;
Part 3 Security screening, shall cover other requirements applicable to all buses.

1.     Performance Specifications

       The installed air conditioning system shall cool the interior of the bus to 80 degrees Fahrenheit measured at one point, located
       four feet above the floor at the longitudinal centerline of the bus, near the driver's location.

       The test conditions, under which the above performance must be achieved, shall consist of 1) placing the bus in a room (such as
       a paint booth) where ambient temperature can be maintained at 100 degrees Fahrenheit, 2) heat soaking the bus at 100 degrees
       Fahrenheit with windows open for at least one hour, and 3) closing windows, turning on the air conditioner with engine at
       chassis manufacturer’s recommended low idle speed, and cooling the interior of the bus to 80 degrees Fahrenheit or lower
       within a maximum of 30 minutes while maintaining 100 degrees Fahrenheit outside temperature.

       Alternately, and at the Department's discretion, this test may be performed under actual summer conditions in Florida, which
       consist of temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit, humidity above 50 percent with normal sun loading of the bus and engine
       at manufacturers recommended low idle speed. After a minimum of 1 hour of heat soaking, the system shall be turned on and
       must provide a minimum 20-degree temperature drop in the 30-minute time limit.

       The manufacturer shall provide facilities for a Department of Corrections representative to confirm that a pilot model of each
