RFP Title: Commodity Processing of USDA Foods

Question:
As of today, 12-21-17, should vendors still "wait to submit" as per the previous Q&A response?
Answer:
All bid information in the system is current and correct. Completed RFPs may be submitted in eBid per the Addendum to this RFP.
Question:
Page 21 sec 5.3 states twice "Vendors will be pay an Admin Fee on "Sales made to CP". Please confirm Vendors are only paying Admin Fee on pounds of diverted Donated Foods
Answer:
Correct - we email awarded vendors in June/July of each year requesting a usage report of all donated commodity pounds for all of the CP members for that school year in question. In return, we send the vendor an invoice based on those total pounds diverted. The rate is $0.02 per raw commodity pound.
Question:
Upon submission, I received an attribute error (line #17) STATING COMPLETE RESPONSE. However, there's already a saved YES response indicated.
Answer:
I need to contact Ionwave (the company that owns eBids) and have them fix this error. I am still waiting on an Addendum to come through for this RFP so please wait to submit.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
