Agenda Item: VII.I.

Consider/Approve Central Cafeteria Milk Bid for the 2010 – 2011 School Year

Background Information:

In addition to advertising, we solicited bids for the purchase of milk (specifications attached) for the 2010 – 2011 school year. Two bids were received for the purchase of milk – Goldenrod Dairy – $189,347 and Turner Dairies – $182,013.50. Funds for these purchases will be budgeted in the FY11 Central Cafeteria Fund budget. After the bids were opened, Ms. Judy Denman recommends Turner Dairies for milk purchases for the 2010 – 2011 school year.

Staff Recommendation:

I concur with the recommendation set forth by Ms. Judy Denman and recommend approval of the bid as indicated on the Bid Request Information Form. With this approval, it is the intent of the Board and management that no liability will be incurred, nor a purchase order issued, until the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2010.
