Agenda Item: VI.G.

Consider/Approve Bread Bid for the 2015 – 2016 School Year

Background Information:

In addition to advertising, we solicited bids from Bimbo Bakeries USA, Flowers Baking Company, and Lewis Brothers Bakeris for the purchase of bread (specifications attached). All of these items are for the 2015 – 2016 school year and funds will be budgeted in the FY16 Central Cafeteria Fund for these purchases. We received bids for these purchases from Bimbo Bakeries USA and Flowers Baking Company and determined that the lowest bid meeting all specifications was submitted by Flowers Baking Company.

Staff Recommendation:

I concur with the recommendation set forth by Ms. Judy Denman and recommend approval of the low bid meeting all specifications submitted by Flowers Baking Company. 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, 2015.
