Summary : In order to provide an online menu system for students and parents to utilize in looking up daily menu offerings, RFP No. 17-02-032 was advertised on February 16, 2017. This RFP was created by Nutrition Services in collaboration with the Strategic Sourcing Department. DCSD received one (1) response from one vendor. They are offering the on-line menu system with mobile apps at a cost of $27,000. In addition, they have offered a mobile pre-ordering system that Nutrition Services may pilot at several of their sites at a cost of $960/site annual subscription as well as a one time $350/site set up fee. Based on this RFP result, it is our strong recommendation to award the contract to Nutrislice.

This award, however, cannot be approved without the additional approval to waive the District’s Conflict of Interest Policy, DJ-R. The Director of Nutrition Services, Brent Craig, is the father of one of the owners of Nutrislice. Superintendent File DJ-R, Purchasing Policies, Conflict of Interest states, “No employee or close friend or family member of a District employee shall be allowed to sell to the District or to a minor or the parent or guardian of any such minor enrolled in the District where the employee is performing services, goods, materials or services of any kind other than that for which (s)he is employed by the District except by specific prior Board approval.” In order to approve Nutrislice as the vendor, we are requesting approval to waive Superintendent File DJ-R, which addresses the conflict of interest.
Funding: Funding is provided by Nutrition Services as a part of their approved budget for the 2017-2018 SY.
Recommendation: Approval of RFP Award to Nutrislice, an online menu provider for Nutrition Services, and approval to waive the Conflict of Interest policy, DJ-R, required for this procurement for up to five (5) years with one year annual renewals.
