RFP BEP # 2006-100                                                                         5

sustained by any person or property arising directly or indirectly from the Contractor's
performance of this contract which are caused by the joint negligence of the BEP and
the Contractor will be apportioned on a comparative fault basis. Any such joint
negligence on the part of the BEP must be a direct result of their active involvement.

Without limiting Contractor's indemnification, it is agreed that the Contractor will
purchase, at its own expense, and maintain in force at all times during the performance
of services under this agreement, the following insurance policies.

Proof of insurance is required for the following:
A. 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 23.30.045. The Contractor will be

B. Comprehensive (Commercial) General Liability Insurance; with coverage limits
not less than $300,000 combined single limit per occurrence and annual aggregates

Where specific limits are shown, it is understood that they will be the minimum
acceptable limits. If the Contractor's policy contains higher limits, the state will be
entitled to coverage to the extent of such higher limits. Certificates of Insurance must be
furnished to the BEP. These certificates must provide 30-day prior notice to the BEP in
the event of cancellation, non-renewal or a material change in the policy.

Proof of all types of insurance must be received by the BEP prior to finalization of
a vending services contract.

A successful contractor must post an individual surety to ensure performance over the
entire term of the contract. In the event it becomes necessary for the BEP to cancel the
contract issued as a result of this Request for Proposal due to noncompliance during
RFP BEP # 2006-100                                                                          6

the term of the contract, regardless of the circumstances or time remaining on the
contract, the individual surety will be declared liquidated damages and become due and
payable to the BEP. By signature on this Request for Proposal, the bidder
acknowledges this condition and voluntarily relinquishes any and all claims to the entire
individual surety. The individual surety may be in any of the following forms:

       a)     Certified or cashier's check: A certified or cashier's check, made
              payable to the State of Alaska, Business Enterprise Program in the
              amount of $5,000.
       b)     Special notice account or certificate of deposit: A special notice
              account book or certificate of deposit, made payable to the State of
              Alaska, Business Enterprise Program in the amount of $5,000; or,
       c)     Irrevocable Letter of Credit: An Irrevocable Letter of Credit, made
              payable to the State of Alaska, Business Enterprise Program in the
              amount of $5,000. The BEP must have full authority to call upon these
              funds without Contractor's approval.

Guidelines for how BEP determines the amount of the individual surety are outlined in
Appendix V. Failure to supply this document within the time required will cause the
BEP to declare the bidder non-responsive and to reject the Contractor’s proposal.

                         SPECIFIC RFP REQUIREMENTS

Contract period is from May 1, 2006 through April 30, 2007. The contract will be
renewed annually for four additional years, with the State having sole right to exercise
each renewal option. An annual Notice of Renewal is to be exercised solely by the
BEP. If all four options are exercised, this contract will terminate on April 30, 2011.

The Contractor is responsible for compliance with the terms and conditions of the
Vending contract. The Contractor agrees that, after reasonable written notice, the State
may default the contract; i.e., for a defined cause of non-compliance with the contract,
and/or 24 hours after notice of the third infraction for not providing vending machine
services as submitted in this proposal. The BEP will give the contractor sixty days
written notice in the event of default.

In the event of early termination of the contract, the contractor must continue operations
until a replacement contractor is found, or for approximately thirty days after the
effective dates of terminating the contract, whichever is shorter.

The BEP reserves the right to exclude specific buildings and/or locations from this
contract at any time during the term of this contract. Such exclusion shall be executed
by the BEP in writing at least thirty days in advance of the exclusion.

The State will have the right to inspect all activities of the contractor associated with
RFP BEP # 2006-100                                                                      7

performing this contract.

Award will be made for each proposal received based on the total number of points
received for that proposal.

The BEP desires that prices to customers be reasonable, however the BEP will not
accept decreases in the prices currently being charged to customers. On the
Evaluation Criteria, determining whether the prices to customers are reasonable will
be done as follows: Prices to customer, as offered in each proposal, will be inserted into
a 3-month spreadsheet, which contains the most current data available. An overall rate
of increase in price to customer will be determined. The lowest price increase
percentage will be divided by each higher increase and then multiplied by 15 (maximum
number of points) to calculate the number of points to be awarded.

                                     For example:

Proposal #1 does not plan to increase any prices, so this results in prices being the
same (or 100%) of the current prices to customer.
Proposal #2 will increase prices to 125% of the current prices offered.

Since Proposal #1 has offered the lowest increase, it receives 15 points.

To determine Proposal #2 points, Proposal # 1 (100%) is divided by Proposal #2
increase (125%) and then multiplied by 15 (maximum points possible).
                       100/125*15=12 points for Proposal #2.

The commission data information on the Evaluation Criteria will be evaluated base
upon the commission percentage figure(s) submitted by the Vendor. The Vendor that
submits the highest total commission proposal will receive 40 points. Lower
commission percentages will be adjusted accordingly.

                 Qualifications and Experience of Contractor

The contractor must possess and demonstrate the following qualifications and

      1. A valid Alaska Business License;

      2. At least one year of providing full service vending machine service is

     machines, and location of such machines shall be solely determined by the BEP

           price changes will occur, etc.

     3.    Contractor shall respond to calls from the building owner or manager
           and/or BEP regarding vending machine breakdown within four hours after

           regarding contract performance.

E.   Contractor agrees to pay the BEP a commission based on the proposal
     contained in Appendix II. This commission is based on a percent of its gross
     sales from its machines. It is agreed that the following procedures will apply to
     collecting commissions, sales, revenues and payment:

     1.    Money from each machine will be collected and counted regularly and not
           less than once per month. The proposed schedule should keep all
           machines operational with products available for sale, i.e., no outages or
           red lights.

           All bidders will submit their proposed schedule for collection and product
           stocking in the proposal response Appendix III.

     2.    All money collected shall be promptly deposited into the Contractor's bank
           account. All records of this deposit transaction shall be made available
           within two days after a request during an audit by the BEP.

     3.    Once per month the Contractor shall furnish the BEP with a report of total
           gross receipts, as shown in Appendix IV, from each machine along with a
           commission check. This report shall minimally specify the type of
           machine, its location and indicates the beginning and ending reading of
           the cash meter/counter for each machine for the same period of time.
           Meter readings will be checked against the reported gross sales for
           verification of accuracy in reporting. The commission will be based on the
           total gross sales reported and not on the meter readings; however, if
           consistent variance is identified between the meter reading and the gross
           sales, measures may be undertaken to obtain a more accurate report
           from the Contractor. The BEP shall be paid no later than fifteen calendar
           days after the end of the month. The contractor agrees that, if commission
           payments are not postmarked by the 15th calendar day after the end of
           the month, a penalty of 1.5% per month will be added to the commission
           due for that reporting period.

     4.    All transactions and financial records shall be subject to audit and/or
           inspection by BEP personnel or their designated representatives, at any
           time during the contract period, without prior notice, and/or up to three
           years after contract termination. Audit and inspection will occur only during
           normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
RFP BEP # 2006-100                                                                    10

F.   Contractor agrees that the specified commission rate and selling prices are
     established based on Contractor's cost of items sold as indicated in Appendix II.

G.   The Contractor shall be solely responsible for maintaining good sanitation and
     cleanliness conditions in connection with its vending machine operations and
     shall perform, at its sole expense, all maintenance, repair and cleaning service
     necessary to maintain machines in a sanitary state and good working condition.
     Such service shall include keeping the machines filled with vending products in
     marketable condition, including but not limited to conditions such as freshness
     and appearance. Such service shall include cleaning, maintaining, lubricating,
     repairing or replacing machines as required to maintain an efficient level of
     service. Replacing machines that cannot be repaired will be done in accordance
     with Paragraph B in this section.

H.   The Contractor shall remove any refuse caused by stocking and maintaining
     machines, and if the Contractor fails to do so, Contractor agrees to pay the BEP
     and/or building owner or manager all costs, charges, and expenses for such

I.   The agents, employees and representatives of the Contractor shall have access
     to the vending machines during reasonable business hours for the purpose of
     inspecting, maintaining and servicing the machines. In the event of an
     emergency situation involving the machines, the Contractor, with the permission
     of the BEP and/or building owner or manager, may be granted access to the
     designated location on the premises during non-working hours.

J.   If subcontractors are used for installation or any other aspect of service provision
     for this contract, it must be indicated in the proposal. The Contractor will be
     responsible for the subcontractors’ quality of work and loss or damage caused by
     subcontractor during installation. Subcontractors will be required to obtain the
     same insurance as the Contractor, including worker's compensation.
     Subcontractors do not include food or food/vending product suppliers.

K.   All local, state, and general taxes are the Contractor’s sole responsibility.
     Contractors may not deduct sales tax prior to determining commissions.

L.   The Contractor shall refund money to customers who have lost money in the
     vending machines or have purchased defective merchandise. The Contractor
     will establish a proposal for reimbursing money lost in their machines. The
     method to be employed for this purpose must accompany the Contractor’s
     proposal. A refund form shall be furnished by the Contractor to be filled out by
     the person requesting a refund. The BEP or building owner or manager will not
     be responsible for disputes over refunds.

M.   All machines must be installed with a non-resettable cash meter/counter or
     functional equivalent. Such meters will enable the BEP to monitor the actual
     amount of cash put into the machine by the customers. At the onset of the
     contract, the Contractor either must reset all cash meters/counters or functional
     equivalent to zero, or must submit the current reading of the cash
RFP BEP # 2006-100                                                                          11

         meters/counters or functional equivalent to the BEP on the first day of the
         contract. At the end of each monthly reporting period, Contractors must submit
         the cash meters/counters or functional equivalent reading to the BEP with the
         commission payment. Failure to submit the cash meters/counters or functional
         equivalent reading may constitute a written notification from the BEP concerning
         performance, or a penalty charge of 5% per month on that month’s commissions.
          The BEP will inform Contractor within 30 days following the preceding month
         concerning what penalty will be imposed.

N.       Within 60 days of onset of contract and annually thereafter, Contractor will
         submit a survey of property or space, which is owned or leased by applicable
         state or federal agencies in the contract area. Included in the survey, Contractor
         will provide an inventory of all vending machines, owned by the Contractor or any
         other party, in property or space, which is owned or leased by applicable state or
         federal agencies.
In addition to the Scope of Services listed above, the Contractor will be granted limited
authority by the State of Alaska, BEP to engage in the following activities in order to
further develop vending machine opportunities and income under the Randolph-
Sheppard and Chance Act Program in Alaska:
        Make contact, negotiate and develop additional unassigned vending locations
         throughout contract area. An official letter of introduction will be provided to the
         Contractor in order to facilitate this process.
        Submit recommendations to BEP for:
         1)    Expanding or enhancing vending machine services in existing locations
               covered under the Randolph-Sheppard and/or Chance Act Program, and
         2)    Exercising authority to provide vending machine services in locations not
               currently recognized under the Randolph-Sheppard and/or Chance Act
               Program. The Alaska BEP will review and comment on recommendations.
