Background Narrative:


The California Multiple Award Schedules (CMAS) offers a wide variety of products and services at prices that have been assessed to be fair, reasonable and competitive.  CMAS contracts are established by the State of California, Department of General Services for use by all California state and local government agencies that are empowered to expend public funds for the acquisition of products and services.  Public Contract Code 10298 authorizes state and local agencies to contract with suppliers awarded CMAS contracts without further competitive bidding. 

Riverside Community College District utilizes multiple vendors to purchase office furniture products and accessories.  Staff recommends use of the CMAS awarded contract number 4-13-71-0110B, as one source for the purchase and warranty of furniture products and accessories, from Computer Comforts, Inc.  The term for CMAS contract number 4-13-71-0110B is May 26, 2017 through February 28, 2022.  District staff has reviewed available cooperative purchasing agreements and other formal purchasing options and found that these contracts best meet the needs of the District.
