Answer Posted (June 24)
I'm glad you are reviewing our RFP.
You will notice that you may submit up to three options which means that a bidder may send in 3 separate bids for different models/brands of chromebooks within their bid packet. Please refer to the EQUIPMENT & LICENSING SPECIFICATIONS section of the bid packet (click here for bid packet information
Our scoring matrix for this RFP will take into account end of life (EOL) of chromebooks of which bids are submitted.
We are hoping that bidders do take advantage of submitting more than one option in their bid packet.
Please consider the Samsung XE303 as a base unit for the purposes of this RFP.
Many thanks for your consideration,
