Change in Apparent Successful Vendor

As we have indicated, the Apparent Successful Vendor (ASV) was not final until contract negotiations were complete and a contract was signed. Earlier today, the initial ASV, Franwell, withdrew its proposal for Washington State.  An ASV is the procurement term used for the highest scoring, responsive vendor. 

We are pleased to notify you that the second place bidder also submitted a strong bid and has accepted our choice to be the new ASV.  MJ Freeway is the new ASV.  We will soon schedule a product demonstration with our Traceability Advisory Group and begin contract negotiations quickly to get this project implemented. 

We’ll find out more and update.
