Copier & Printer RFP

Copier & Printer RFP

RFP Questions & Answers

  1. The rfp states “all fee, property taxes, delivery charges, setup fees, training fees, connectivity and networking charges are to be included”.  Does that include all ongoing connectivity and networking charges for the duration of the contract? Or just the initial setup? Ongoing connectivity and networking changes for duration of contract.
  2. Under the current equipment total I noticed the plotter in the register of deeds office was not on this list.  What is the status of this device?  Not included in this rfp.
  3. Looking at your current fleet of equipment under category 2 is 11x17 paper capacity necessary for all of those departments? Yes, and for all category one devices as well.

Also these machines come standard with 2 (500 or 550) paper trays and the rfp ask for a minimum of 4 trays of 500 sheets.  A few of the machines listed on the necessary replacements ask for contradicting paper amounts.  All Segment one machines should have the standard two trays, where extra trays are specified on the chart, they should have a capacity of at least 500 sheets per extra tray.  All segment two machines should have 4 paper trays standard with a total capacity of 2,000 sheets  the tax department is a typo, my apologies.  It should have 2 extra trays.  Segment 3 machines should have a standard capacity of 500, and should include extra trays with a capacity of at least 500 sheets per tray where specified in the chart.

It also states that each machine must have a 50 sheet staple floor standing with a hole punch but on the list of necessary replacements it has contradicting information on that as well.  Also as long as the machine can staple 30 pages at a time is that suitable?  30 is fine, but must be a floor finisher where listed.

Is hole punch necessary on each machine as well?  Yes, for segment 2 machines, excluding the one in the senior center.

It ask for a dual scan document feeder, are we talking about a document feeder that scans both sides of the document in one pass through the feeder?   If so can this be clarified to a single pass document feeder?  Yes, single-pass is the same as dual-scan, and is needed for segment 2 machines only.

The 60 gb hdd and 1gb ram minimum seems a little much can this be waived seeing that all of these are new digital equipment and across all manufacturers will have the necessary standard space to be able to print, copy and scan in your environment?  Yes

  1. The category 3 section ask for a standard minimum 2gb ram 80 gb hdd is this also necessary as well?  The first segment of equipment is only asking for 512 mb minimum memory capacity, are you utilizing the category 2 and 3 equipment drastically different that we should know about to request this difference? Standard Hard drives will be acceptable.
  2. Seeing that most business environments use a mixture of windows based and mac products shouldn’t the rfp require that all devices coming in have post script included with the machine giving the ability for both windows and mac/apple products can be utilized?  No, we have an entirely PC fleet.

As far as category 1 requirements, it is asking for a 50 sheet floor standing finisher, to save space and money could this also be a 50 sheet finisher (whether internal or external)?  An internal finisher is fine, but for segment one machines only.



  1. Category 3 ask that the machine “must be fax capable”.  Does this mean that a fax board comes standard or that you can add a fax board at a later time but having it come already on the machine quoted is not necessary?  Fax standard.
  2. Have an HDD on the Category 3 type machine isn’t something that most manufacturers offers and might be manufacturer specific.  If the machine has the minimum 512mb RAM is that sufficient? Yes 
  3. The RFP request that there is a cost per copy dollar amount for b/w and color, with all of the requirements of the bid being very specific such as equipment, specs of equipment, very specific accessories to be included, monthly allotments etc wouldn’t it make sense to have each vendor give the monthly price for everything included that is notated on the bid including the allotment for b/w and color prints and then have a cost per copy for any overages like most RFP’s request?  Example: the county will pay $X,XXX.XX per month which will include everything except paper and if county goes over then they will pay $X.XX per b/w and $X.XX per color?  Yes

Fact Sheet

 FEMA May Reimburse Short-Term Lodging Expenses

FEMA provides financial assistance to make sure those displaced by Hurricane Florence are in safe and secure housing.  This is especially true as colder temperatures move into North Carolina this weekend.  If a person has received FEMA funds, they can use that money to pay for a hotel or motel room.

Many people are staying in a home without heat or outside in a tent or other temporary shelter. If you know someone doing so, encourage them to use their FEMA funds for a hotel room.

If residents do get a hotel room during this cold snap, they should keep their receipts.  This will serve as proof that the FEMA assistance was used as intended. It will also help to show a continued need for housing help.  This may allow the person to receive additional FEMA funds if they are eligible.

Receipts should show survivors’ names, the name of the lodging facility, dates of occupancy and the amount paid.

Daniel Keylin (Tillis)| (202) 224-6342
Caitlin Carroll (Burr) |(202) 228-1616
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, North Carolina Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr issued the following statement regarding North Carolinians who are applying for federal disaster assistance:
“We’ve recently heard stories of North Carolinians who were denied federal assistance for losses associated with Hurricane Florence. Our offices are now requesting additional information from FEMA and local officials to get a better sense of specifics surrounding these reported cases. While not every North Carolinian who suffered property damage will be eligible for federal assistance, we want to make sure everyone who is eligible for assistance receives it. We encourage any North Carolinian having issues with their application for federal assistance to contact our offices by calling 704-509-9087 (Tillis) or 336-631-5125 (Burr).”
Residents from North Carolina who are initially denied disaster assistance can appeal the decision to FEMA. The offices of Senators Tillis and Burr have been assisting North Carolinians with the FEMA application process, and residents are encouraged to contact their offices if they have any questions or are not receiving timely or satisfactory responses.
Senators Tillis and Burr led the North Carolina Congressional delegation’s successful efforts to secure a significant down payment for the state’s long-term recovery in legislation passed last week. Senators Tillis and Burr will continue to work with Congressional leaders to ensure North Carolina has the long-term resources necessary to rebuild from Hurricane Florence.
For three days only, FEMA will have a Mobile Registration Intake Center will be in Snow Hill, Greene County.
The center will be open Monday through Wednesday October 15 – 17, 2018.
The center offers in-person assistance to homeowners and renters who sustained damage in counties included in the North Carolina federal disaster declaration for Hurricane Florence.

Greene Becomes 28th County Eligible for Florence Disaster Assistance


RALEIGH: Governor Roy Cooper’s request for major federal disaster assistance for Greene County has been approved by FEMA to help individuals and communities recover from Hurricane Florence.

With the addition of Greene County, 28 counties have now been approved for federal assistance in recovering from Hurricane Florence: Beaufort, Bladen, Brunswick, Carteret, Columbus, Craven, Cumberland, Duplin, Greene, Harnett, Hoke, Hyde, Johnston, Jones, Lee, Lenoir, Moore, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, Pitt, Richmond, Robeson, Sampson, Scotland, Wayne and Wilson. Additional counties are currently undergoing damage assessments and may be added.

FEMA has approved all 28 counties for Individual Assistance, which makes possible rental assistance and Transitional Sheltering Assistance in hotels. It also provides Public Assistance, which allows local governments to be reimbursed for emergency protective measures, debris removal and other costs local governments incurred in responding to the storm. Houses of worship that suffered damage are also eligible to apply for aid under the Public Assistance program.

FEMA’s disaster assistance programs are designed to help with grants for basic repairs to make survivors’ homes safe, sanitary and secure and to provide a temporary place to live while survivors develop their recovery plans.

Anyone with a home damaged by Florence in any county is encouraged to begin the FEMA registration process by calling 1-800-621-FEMA to register via telephone or by visiting to register online. People can also apply at disaster recovery centers opening around the state in hard-hit communities.

As of today, more than 98,000 people have registered for disaster assistance and more than $50 million in federal disaster assistance has been approved for individuals and families. This already exceeds the totals for Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Storm survivors can also apply for temporary help buying food through the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP). For all counties except Greene, people who want to apply must do so in person from Friday, Sept. 28, through Saturday, Oct. 6, with the exception of Sunday, Sept. 30, when all application sites will be closed. Locations and hours of application sites in each county are available on the DHHS website. People can also dial 2-1-1 for information on application sites in their county.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is working to expand the program to Greene County residents and is awaiting federal approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Low interest disaster loans from the US Small Business administration are also available to residents in the disaster-declared counties. People who are interested should apply with FEMA. The SBA has opened Business Recovery Centers in Craven, New Hanover, Pitt and Robeson counties.

North Carolinians in these counties can also get temporary jobs working on recovery efforts. To apply for the Hurricane Florence temporary employment program, residents should visit their local NCWorks Career Center, which can be found by visiting

Disaster unemployment assistance is also available for North Carolinians unable to work due to Florence through the NC Department of Commerce’s Division of Employment Security. For more information, people can call 1-866-795-8877 or visit

Additional Information Resources

The statewide NC 211 information line can provide callers with housing, recovery and other storm-related details. Dial 2-1-1 or 888-892-1162, or text FLORENCE to 898211. The information line is staffed around the clock to connect North Carolinians to storm resources.
