Calgary Catholic School District Signs New Contracts with Four Transportation Providers after Request for Proposal (RFP) Process.
When the value of a possible contract for services or materials exceeds a certain threshold dollar amount, the Calgary Catholic School District is required to conduct a formal RFP process that is open to all bidders who wish to submit a proposal for the possible contract.
On January 31, 2019, Calgary Catholic posted two publically-accessible RFPs—one for regular transportation services and one for diverse learner transportation services. A Calgary Catholic RFP evaluation committee evaluated, scored, and ranked all the submitted proposals based on the specific criteria that were outlined in the RFP instructions to all bidders. In April 2019, Calgary Catholic invited the four top-ranked bidders to enter into direct contract negotiations.
Recently, the contract negotiations concluded, and the parties finalized the contracts. Calgary Catholic can now announce that beginning September 2019, the following service providers will provide transportation services:
