The State of Minnesota, Department of Administration, Office of State Procurement is requesting proposals on behalf of the State of Minnesota and NASPO ValuePoint. The purpose of this Request for Proposal (“RFP”), which can be accessed here, is to establish Minnesota-led NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement(s) with qualified manufacturers for Computer Equipment (Desktops, Laptops, Tablets, Servers, Storage and Ruggedized Devices including related Peripherals & Services).

This RFP and any resulting contract are for qualified manufacturers only – responders that cannot provide verification that they are a manufacturer will not be considered. Manufacturers that do not sell products directly may receive a Contract Award, but they must clearly specify their relationship with sales partners as directed in the RFP.

Sealed responses must be received in the office of the Director of the Office of State Procurement and time-stamped no later than the date and time specified, at which time the names of the contractors responding to this RFP will be read. Late responses cannot be considered. The laws of Minn. Stat. Ch. 16C apply to this RFP.

For the purpose of this RFP, there are three product Bands identified below which may be awarded. Responders must only respond to Bands in which they manufacture the defined product. “Re-branding” a product that is manufactured by another company does not meet this requirement. The State of Minnesota (“Lead State”) intends to establish multiple awards per Band. The Lead State reserves the right to eliminate any Bands from the final award.

Band 1: Personal Computing Devices – Windows Operating Systems: Desktops, Laptops, and Tablets

Band 2: Personal Computing Devices – Non-Windows Operating System: Desktops, Laptops, and Tablets

Band 3: Servers and Storage
