Description:
The intent of these statewide contracts is for the purchase of Science Education Supplies and Equipment that are used in an instructional forum in school grade levels ranging from kindergarten through the community colleges, but may also be used by other authorized users. Laboratory Equipment and Supplies as may be required by an official operating laboratory, and/or for research and educational purposes in a university setting (undergraduate and graduate level schooling), would normally use the Laboratory Supplies, Equipment and Chemicals term contract. While some of the items included in the resulting contract may be a subset of the larger Laboratory Supplies and Equipment contract, the key discriminator on determining whether the use of this contract is appropriate is the type of institution that is ordering the supplies.

GENERAL: The percentage discounts are off each vendor’s currently published catalog/list price. The discount shall apply to the unit price and applicable to all designations such as each case, package, lot, etc. This discount shall also be applicable to quantity discounts when an item meets the quantity requirements on an individual order. There are four (4) awarded vendors, and just because one vendor offers a higher discount % from their list price, does not necessarily mean it is the lowest net price to the State. It is always best to check multiple vendors’ prices before issuing a purchase order. Any items excluded by the contractor from the discounts listed, other than those specifically addressed below, are not included in the contracts and will require proper competition.

DELIVERY: After award, all deliveries shall be made and all services provided to the location specified by the Using Governmental Unit in its purchase order. Routine catalog items shall be delivered within ten (10) days and special or non-catalog items shall be delivered in thirty (30) days. Using governmental units may request expedited delivery when needed. Any additional delivery, packaging fees or setup charges must be invoiced to the using governmental unit as a pass through cost. Contractor must communicate to the using governmental unit any additional shipping or setup charges PRIOR to order acceptance. Contractors must also follow-up/track backorders and keep ordering entities advised of the order status or and whether items have been dropped and must be reordered. For individual orders totaling less than $ 100.00, contractor shall ship these orders prepaid, add the shipping charges to the invoice as a separate charge and include in the invoice total for payment by Using Governmental Unit.

RETURN GOODS POLICY As a minimum requirement, the Contractors shall be responsible for filing, processing, and collecting all claims for damaged products, and for promptly replacing any defective item in a timely manner.
