Background Narrative:


The Foundation for California Community Colleges (Foundation), a nonprofit organization, serves as the official foundation supporting the Board of Governors, Chancellor’s Office, and the entire California Community College system. The Foundation operates CollegeBuys, a cooperative purchasing program designed to leverage the buying power of the 72 community college districts. CollegeBuys secures the most advantageous pricing from enterprise level vendors using system-wide agreements. Public Contract Code Section 20661 authorizes California Community Colleges to piggyback on contracts awarded by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges.

Riverside Community College District utilizes multiple vendors to purchase furniture and fixtures. Staff recommends use of the Foundation awarded agreement number CB 13-013, as one source to purchase furniture and fixtures from Krueger International (KI). The term of agreement number CB 13-013 is through October 2017, with an option to renew for one (1) additional term.

District staff has reviewed available cooperative purchasing agreements and other formal purchasing options and found that this contract best meet the needs of the District.
