The Suburban Purchasing Cooperative (SPC) Governing Board has awarded the 2014 Telecommunication Services Vendor Contract to Call One of Chicago. The contract will run from April 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015. Call One has been the SPC telecommunications supplier for many years and is a vendor in good standing. The SPC reserves the right to extend the contract for up to four (4) additional one-year terms upon mutual agreement of both the vendor and the SPC on a negotiated basis.
The SPC received proposals in response to the request for proposals (RFP) for the selection of a 2014 telecommunication services vendor from Call One and Windstream Communications, Inc. of Little Rock, Arkansas. Upon reviewing the proposal documents, staff determined that the Windstream Communications, Inc. proposal was not compliant; therefore, Call One submitted the only responsive, responsible bid. With acceptance of this contract, Call One agrees to all terms and conditions set forth in the specifications contained within the request for proposals to which they responded.
