I. INTRODUCTION
A. PURPOSE
The purpose of this Request for Proposal is to obtain sealed proposals for Janitorial Services.
It is the goal of this Request for Proposal to identify a vendor(s) and execute a contract to provide Janitorial
Services for the State of Delaware.
1. COMPETITIVE SEALED PROPOSAL
It has been determined by Director, Government Support Services, pursuant to Delaware Code Title
29, Chapter 6924 (a) that this solicitation be offered as a request for competitive sealed proposals
because the use of competitive sealed bidding is not practical and/or not in the best interest of the
State. The use of competitive sealed proposals is necessary to:
Use a contract other than a fixed-price type; or
Conduct oral or written discussions with vendors concerning technical and price aspects of their
proposals; or
Afford vendors an opportunity to revise their proposals through best and final offers; or
Compare the different price, quality and contractual factors of the proposals submitted; or
Award a contract in which price is not the determining factor.
2. CONTRACT REQUIREMENTS
This contract will be issued to cover the requirements for all State Agencies and shall be accessible
to any School District, Political Subdivision, Municipality, Volunteer Fire Company or higher education
entity receiving state funds. Furthermore, this contract shall be accessible to all other entities as
identified by Del. Code, Chapter 69, Title 29 § 6910.
3. MANDATORY USE CONTRACT
REF: Title 29, Chapter 6911(d) Delaware Code. All Covered Agencies as defined in 29 Del. C.
§6902(6) shall procure all material, equipment and nonprofessional services through the statewide
contracts administered by Government Support Services, Office of Management and Budget. Delaware
State University, Delaware Technical and Community College, school districts, and the Legislative
Branch are specifically exempted from the requirements of this subchapter. In addition, the Delaware
Transit Corporation is exempt from the entire procurement chapter. Pursuant to 29 Del. C. §6904(l) and
(n) respectively, the Department of Elections and the Board of Pension Trustees have certain
exemptions from the procurement chapter which may or may not apply to this Request for Proposals.
4. COOPERATIVE USE OF AWARD
As a publicly competed contract awarded in compliance with 29 DE Code Chapter 69, this contract
is available for use by other states and/or governmental entities through a participating addendum.
Interested parties should contact the State Contract Procurement Officer identified in the contract for
instruction. Final approval for permitting participation in this contract resides with the Director of
Government Support Services and in no way places any obligation upon the awarded vendor(s).

be most advantageous to the State of Delaware.
6. POTENTIAL CONTRACT OVERLAP
Vendors shall be advised that the State, at its sole discretion, shall retain the right to solicit for goods
and/or services as required by its agencies and as it serves the best interest of the State. As needs
are identified, there may exist instances where contract deliverables, and/or goods or services to be
solicited and subsequently awarded, overlap previous awards. The State reserves the right to reject
any or all bids in whole or in part, to make partial awards, to award to multiple vendors during the
same period, to award by types, on a zone-by-zone basis or on an item-by-item or lump sum basis
item by item, or lump sum total, whichever may be most advantageous to the State of Delaware.

if deemed in the best interest of the State.

the Vendor and Government Support Services. Negotiation may be initiated no later than ninety (90)
