Agenda Item: VII.H.

Consider/Approve Central Cafeteria Milk Bid for the 2014 – 2015 School Year

Background Information:

In addition to advertising, the Reelfoot Area Consortium solicited bids from Turner's Holding, Borden, and Purity Dairies for the purchase of milk (specifications attached). All of these items are for the 2014 – 2015 school year and funds will be budgeted in the Central Cafeteria Fund for these purchases. The Consortium received bids for these purchases from Turner's Holding and Borden and determined that the lowest bid that met all specifications was submitted by Borden.

The consortium approved the lowest bid meeting all specifications (summary attached) 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 low bid meeting all specifications submitted by Borden. 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, 2014.
