The quantities and delivery dates listed herein are the best estimate of the District based on prior and projected usage. The District will make every attempt to adhere as closely as possible to the estimated dates and quantities.  However, the District reserves the right to adjust shipment dates, reduce the number of shipments and/or purchase additional quantities at the agreement price at any time during the agreement period. By signing this agreement you are agreeing to honor your proposal’s price for the entire term of the agreement. The initial term shall begin upon School Board approval on October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016 with two (2) one-year renewal periods to begin on October 1. Either party can cancel the contract without reason at the end of each contract year. Cancellation must be in writing and received ninety (90) calendar days prior to the end of each contract year. Silence from both parties will be considered as acceptance for another contract year at the same terms and conditions. All pricing proposed herein shall be firm through the first year of the contract. For successive renewal year(s), Bidder may request an increase equal to the allowable increase in the School Food Lunch Reimbursement program, using the index in effect at the time of the request. The request must be submitted in writing to the Purchasing Department ninety (90) calendar days prior to October 1 of each renewal year. If Bidder can prove economic conditions warrant a greater increase with supporting supplier invoices and other documentation of Bidder cost increase, the request will be subject to review and negotiation. The approval of any price increase will be determined solely by the District. If the District agrees to the price increase, the contract will be renewed for an additional one (1) year period at the new pricing with all other terms and conditions remaining unchanged. If offering a brand and/or product OTHER THAN ONE OF THE PREAPPROVED BRANDS LISTED, make a notation in the comments section for that item.
