Vendor & RFP Information

The Center Line Public Schools participate in competitive bidding for technology projects (and curriculum products that employ technology).  IF we have any available projects open they will be listed in the folders below.  If you do not see an RFP or any folders, then we have no open projects.

All contact and project details are listed within each RFP folder.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Sincerely,
-The Center Line Public Schools Technology and Curriculum Departments

INFORMATION FOR (NEW) VENDORS

Note: Please see our online Vendor Database Application.

We receive approximately 50 sales and cold calls a day for curriculum and technology products and services. While we appreciate that vendors have instructional and educational technology products and services to sell to Center Line Public Schools (and that you think we have such deep pockets), it is not realistic for us to answer every incoming sales call or email. Typically when we are ready to make a curriculum or technology purchase, we will do the research, contact vendors, and open the process to competition.

We are a public institution, and ALL purchases and projects either receive multiple quotes or participate in a competitive process for all curriculum and technology products and services. If we have an open project, you will see it listed on the available RFP section (under the respective department's web page on www.clps.org)

We maintain this Vendor Database for both curriculum and technology products targeted at public schools. Filling out this form will add you to our Vendor Database for curriculum and technology products and services only.  If you have an inquiry about other product categories besides curriculum and technology, please reach out to the most appropriate department.

Before filling out the form, please keep in mind the following:
  1. Addition to our vendor list does not guarantee that we will use your products/services. It just puts you in our database. Typically, when we are ready to purchase, we will use this database to reach out to vendors (either via direct contact, or by notification of an available RFP).
  2. Based on the amount of calls and emails we receive, there is likely A LOT of competition in your category, and we do try to keep things local (within the State of Michigan) as much as price allows.
  3. Direct individual district purchasing (primarily for technology items) has been heavily rolled back in favor of shared district purchasing, for example, purchases through a regional ISD or participation in the State of Michigan Technology Readiness Category Consortia (TRIG/22i/SPOT). Center Line Public Schools does participate in these consortia and it can limit us to partnering with other ISDs, school districts, and/or purchasing from "State Master Catalogs" (such as REMCBids.org) when we make purchases in order to get our full per-student funding from the State of Michigan.  A lot of our current educational hardware and software came via partnered purchases with the State of Michigan or the Macomb Intermediate School District (MISD).
Thank you for following this informal vendor policy.
