Food Service Contract Renewal for 2019-20 Lunch and Breakfast Programs – 6.04
School year 2019-20 represents the third renewal for the district’s current food service management company, Organic Life. State law allows the district to renew a contract four times before a district is required to bid the service.

The per meal rates for the breakfast program will increase from $1.2509 to $1.2746. The reimbursable lunch and the a la carte equivalent rates will increase from $2.8668 to $2.9212 per meal. This increase is based on the allowable CPI of 1.9%.

The board approved the contract with Organic Life for the following rates:    

                                                   2018-19 Cost                       2019-20 Cost

Breakfast

Approval of District-Wide Copier Lease Solution – 6.05
The district currently leases a total of 55 multi-function copiers and is in the final year of a three-year contract with Konica Minolta. Konica Minolta extended the opportunity to participate in a proprietary One Rate Program that eliminates per copy costs and charges a fixed monthly rate which includes unlimited printing. Rates for both 36-month and 48-month contracts were proposed.

It was determined that a 36-month contract would improve overall productivity and satisfaction and permit the district to be more flexible as print needs continue to change. By implementing the Konica Minolta’s One Rate Program recommended solution for 36 months, the district will receive new and improved equipment while cutting operating costs by over 13%. The new proposal includes 54 multi-function copiers for a monthly rate of $23,905 for all devices.  

The board approved the contract with Konica Minolta for their One Rate Program for 36 months.

Approval of 3-year Contract for Natural Gas  – 6.06
The current contract at CCSD59 for natural gas expires on June 30, 2019. A Request For Proposal (RFP) was sent to eight providers and the district received three responses. To help prevent large cost variances created by the fluctuating market, the district asked vendors to provide fixed pricing for part or all of the natural gas costs.

Centerpoint Energy provided a quote at a fixed rate of -$0.006 per therm basis and $0.269 per therm for 50% of the District’s anticipated usage for 36 months. This combination of fixed and floating rates protects the district from extreme price variances while also taking advantage of price drops. Since Centerpoint is CCSD59’s current provider, the district would not need to incur any additional expenses for changing providers.

The board approved the quote provided by Centerpoint Energy at a fixed rate of -$0.006 per therm basis and $0.269 per therm for 50% of the District’s anticipated usage for 36 months.
