    I. GENERAL INFORMATION

           a. Background

The Georgia Student Finance Commission (“GSFC”) was statutorily created to help improve
the higher educational opportunities of citizens and persons in the State of Georgia by serving as
an agency and budget unit within the executive branch of state government. GSFC administers a
variety of scholarship and grant programs, including the Helping Outstanding Pupils
Educationally (HOPE) Scholarship Program and other educational scholarships and grants. The
programs are supported by state lottery proceeds and state general fund appropriations.

The Georgia Higher Education Assistance Corporation (“GHEAC”) is a nonprofit public
corporation of the state and is responsible for guarantying educational loans to eligible students
and parents in accordance with state law and the requirements of the Federal Higher Education
Act of 1965, as amended.

The Georgia Student Finance Authority (“GSFA” or “The Authority”) is a nonprofit public
corporation of the state and is responsible for providing student financial aid to eligible
Georgians through loan, service cancelable loan, scholarship and grant assistance programs as
determined by the General Assembly. GSFA is also authorized to be a lender by Georgia statute.
GSFA performs all managerial, supervisory, clerical and administrative functions required by
GHEAC and GSFC.

GSFA makes low-interest federal Stafford and PLUS loans to students and parents, and is the
only lender in Georgia providing service-cancelable loans to encourage students to train for
careers in critical need areas such as teaching and health care. Alternative loans and consolidated
loans also are available to qualified borrowers.

GHEAC and GSFA are administratively attached to GSFC, but all three are separate legal
entities.

           b. Purpose of the Procurement

The Purpose of this Request for Qualified Contractors (RFQC) solicitation is to establish a list of
qualified contractors to perform printing services for the GSFA. Following the establishment of
the Qualified Contractors List, these firms will have the opportunity to provide printing in
support of a variety of marketing and internal print projects. Contractors shall provide printing
services upon request of the Client Services & Marketing Units in accordance with the
turnaround times outlined in Exhibit A. Exhibit A contains specifications for all possible printing
projects to be awarded during the year and these are the only projects to be awarded under this
contract.
RFQC# 476-063-062308-32
         c. Duration of Contract

GSFA expects to award multiple contracts for the services herein and reserves the right to utilize
the services of all, some, or none of the successful Contractors. In addition, award of a contract
does NOT guarantee any minimum or maximum amount of actual business volume. The term of
the contract shall be from July 1, 2008 or the date of award through June 30, 2009 or one year
after actual date of award, with the option to renew the contract for three (3) additional one-year
periods at GSFA’s option and sole discretion. No later than sixty (60) days prior to the expiration
date of this Contract or any renewals or extension thereof, the Contractor may submit to GSFA
clear and plain information demonstrating that changed circumstances in the marketplace affect
the Contractor’s ability to renew the Contract under the then current prices. Changed
circumstances in the marketplace may include without limitation such items as price increases in
postage, shipping, or printing supplies that are beyond the Contractor’s control. GSFA shall have
the option either to modify the prices under the Contract up to a maximum of five percent (5%)
of the amounts currently in effect or to terminate the contract by non-renewal.

           d. Basic Guidelines for Request for Qualified Contractors

Pursuant to the provisions of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated Section 50-5-67(a), GSFA
has determined that the use of competitive sealed bidding will not be practical or advantageous
to the State in completing the acquisition of the services described herein. A competitive sealed
Request for Qualified Contractors response shall be submitted in the same manner as competitive
sealed bids and shall be opened in the same manner as competitive sealed bids. All responses
submitted pursuant to this request shall be made in accordance with the provisions of the Georgia
Vendor Manual and these instructions.

announced, Contractors are not permitted to communicate, for any reason, with any GSFC,
GSFA or GHEAC staff members except through the Procurement Officer named herein or as
provided by existing work agreement(s). For violation of this provision, the GSFA shall reserve
the right to reject the bid of the offending Contractor. All questions concerning this RFQC must
be submitted in writing, via e-mail to Everett Petway, at everettp@gsfc.org. No questions other
than written will be accepted. No responses other than formal amendments will be binding upon
the GSFA.




                                                                                                 5
RFQC# 476-063-062308-32
        f. Rejection of RFQC

GSFA reserves the right to reject any or all bids, waive any minor irregularities or informalities
in a bid, and to accept or reject any item or combination of items, when to do so would be
advantageous to the GSFA. A bid that does not contain all the elements listed within this RFQC
will not automatically be disqualified. GSFA reserves the right to cancel this RFQC at any time.
GSFA will not be liable for any cost/losses incurred by the Bidder throughout this process.

           g. Vendor Registration System

Bidder must be registered in the State of Georgia’s web-based Vendor Registration System in
order to do business with the GSFA. This system also allows bidders to receive automatic
electronic notification of bid opportunities from the State of Georgia and other governmental
entities within Georgia through the Georgia Procurement Registry. Bidders may register at:
https://ssl.doas.state.ga.us/VendorDB/mainframe.jsp.

At the time of registration, bidders must select the products and services they provide using the
appropriate NIGP Codes. Bidders are responsible for updating and maintaining key company,
contact, and product information in the system. All inquiries about the Vendor Registration
System should be addressed to: vendoradm@doas.ga.gov.

           h. Standard Agency Contract

GSFA employs the use of a standard agency contract, which is a part of this solicitation package
and all contract exceptions taken must be outlined on a separate sheet and included with your bid
response. Prior to award, all apparent successful Contractors, who took exception(s) to the
standard contract, shall be required to enter into discussions with the GSFA to resolve the
contractual exceptions or differences before an award can be made.

These discussions shall be finalized and all exceptions resolved within one (1) week of
notification. Failure to resolve contractual differences may lead to rejection of the Contractor’s
bid. If a Contractor’s bid is rejected, GSFA reserves the right to enter into discussions with the
next lowest responsive and responsible Contractor and to continue such process until a contract
is awarded.

The GSFA reserves the right to modify the Contract to be consistent with the apparent successful
Contractor’s exceptions and to negotiate any other modifications, provided however that no such
modifications affect the evaluation criteria set forth herein, or give any of the successful
Contractors a competitive advantage.

           p. Contractor Standard Terms and Conditions

Neither GSFA nor the State of Georgia shall be bound by any Contractor standard terms and
conditions included in any packaging, invoice, catalog, brochure, technical data sheet, or other
documents which attempt to impose any condition or variance with or in addition to the terms
and conditions contained in this RFQC.

   II. SCOPE OF SERVICES

When it is determined by the Authority that printing services are necessary, the Contractor’s
point of contact will be notified as specified by the Contractor in its bid response. The
Contractor should fill the request within a reasonable timeframe (as specified in Exhibit A)
depending on the urgency of the services needed.

   1. The Contractor shall meet with the designated project manager or Authority employee
      upon commencement of each assignment to receive the job materials.

   2. Contractors who do not perform to the expected standards or adhere to the Authority’s
      policies and procedures will be dropped from active contract status. A letter will be sent
      to the Contractor advising of imminent dismissal and requesting resolution within a
      specified time frame. When the dispute has been resolved to the satisfaction of both
      parties, the contract may, at the Authority’s sole discretion, be reinstated to active
      contract status.

   3. Printing supplied under the contract shall be of a quality that is commercially acceptable.
      Any printing that is rejected by GSFA shall be reprinted at the Contractor’s expense. The
      Contractor shall also incur whatever cost is necessary, to include, but not be limited to
      overtime, premium expedited delivery services, etc, to reprint the job and deliver the
      printed material within the time frame specified. The Contractor shall guarantee all
      products to be free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of one-hundred
      and twenty (120) days from the date of delivery. If, during the warranty period, a defect
      develops, the Contractor shall replace all affected material at no cost to GSFA.

   4. Any special functions not specified in the Contract, but required to produce one of the
      specified print related items, shall be permitted and billed as a separate line item against
      the Contract, providing that the special function is approved by GSFA, in writing, and
      does not exceed the total value of the given item by ten percent (10%).

   5. Bid responses containing provisions for over or under delivery and/or containing a
      minimum order/ship quantity or dollar value, unless otherwise called for in the RFQC,
      may be treated as non-responsive and may not be considered for award. In addition, over

                                                                                                8
RFQC# 476-063-062308-32
     and under runs shall not be accepted during contract performance unless prior written
     approval has been granted.

  III. MINIMUM CONTRACTOR QUALIFICATIONS

Information provided in response to the items outlined below will be used to evaluate the
Contractor against minimum qualification requirements designed to ensure the Contractor’s
complete understanding of the requirements of this RFQC and their capability to respond to
requests for services. Failure to provide a satisfactory response to the items below may result in
the Contractor being considered non-responsive and their bid not worthy of further
consideration.
