Agenda Item: VII.I.

Consider/Approve Central Cafeteria Produce Bid for the 2017 – 2018 School Year

Background Information:

In addition to advertising, the Reelfoot Area Consortium solicited bids for the purchase of produce (specifications attached). All of these items are for the 2017 – 2018 school year, and funds will be budgeted in the FY18 Central Cafeteria Fund for these purchases. The Consortium received (1) one bid for these purchases from US Foods.

The consortium approved bid as noted above; however, each individual school board must accept the bid.

Staff Recommendation:

I concur with the recommendation set forth by the Reelfoot Area Consortium and Ms. Judy Denman, and recommend approval of the bid submitted by US Foods. 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, 2017.
