One more question...can you tell
us what the volume is for color? We understand that the rental agreement
should include unlimited copies, but it is necessary to have some idea of
volume to provide a basis for pricing, as color costs significantly more for
service and supplies.
This question was submitted late
and we are under no obligation to respond. However, we will give the
current volume information of color MFP only, an estimated 2200
copies/month. The RFP request for one (1) 60PPM Color MFP will not be
effected by the removal of the colored lasers in the buildings as response from
question Q12 (shown below).
Q12. Does the District
plan to remove any printers? If so, can you provide an estimated number
of printers that will be removed and associated volume? This could potentially
have a significant impact on the volume being done on the MFPs as prints
migrate away from individual printers.
The District plans to
remove one color laser from each of the schools and administration totaling 20
units. We also plan to remove an additional black/white laser from
each school totaling 19 units. The equipment minimum specifications were
based on the volumes in the present locations with room for growth. The volumes
from the removal of these printers will be pushed to the Copiers/MFPs on
location and/or in proximity of other printers in the building, Copy Shop and
the use of electronic technology. Color copying needs would be directed to the Copy Shop.
