The Kern Community College District's Purchasing Department, under the Business Services division, handles the procurement of supplies, material, equipment and non-construction services from responsible vendors at the lowest cost or best value. Consistent with the California Public Contract Code, the District solicits Invitations to Bid, Requests for Proposals (RFP), Requests for Qualifications (RFQ), or other formal methods of procurement for contracts exceeding bid limits.
There are currently no active RFPs available at this time.
**After much consideration and due to unforeseen circumstances at Cerro Coso Community College this RFP has been withdrawn and there will not be an award made at this point in time. All vendor proposals that have already been submitted as of the date of the posting of this Notice (September 28, 2018) are hereby rejected. We will restructure the specifications to include a broader range of detail and incorporate student, faculty and staff questions and concerns prior to reissuing the RFP. All potential bidders will be notified upon re-release of the Request for Proposal. The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals to provide campus security services, for the Kern Community College District, on behalf of Cerro Coso Community College. Any resulting agreement will be between the supplier whose proposal is selected and the Kern Community College District ("District" or "KCCD"). The Kern Community College District on behalf of Cerro Coso Community College is seeking a successful vendor(s) to work collaboratively with the District in offering unarmed campus security services at multiple campus locations including Ridgecrest, Tehachapi, and Lake Isabella.
