E-Rate State Master Contracts - PIA Questions
Many of you are getting the same questions from PIA concerning the State Replacement Contract AT&T Wireless ALJP2010-001, Verizon ALJP2010-004 and SouthernLINC ALJP2010-002. We have offered an award on these contracts but are awaiting proper signatures to the final contracts agreement. So at this point we(the Alabama Department of Education - Contract Administrator) have not yet procured a contract but we do intend to have a contract in place to the expiration to either of these contracts. A Form 470 was filed for these 944450001034984. Once these contracts have been finalized I will send detailed instruction in how to procede with the application process.
To date, I have no new information concerning the Master Statewide Contract administered by the Alabama Department of Finance called TA498. I have been consistantly informed that this contract will be rebid and once the bid is ready to be released I'm to assist them in completing the Form 470 and the E-Rate rules will be followed with respect to awarding a replacement contract.
ALJP CONTRACT BUYERS (AND SALES CONTACTS) NOTE:
This program is a LEA Group Member self-monitored program as far as meeting local, State, Federal and/or E-Rate audit requirements. When LEA Group Members make any purchases from the ALJP Contract they should request (or require) that the Sales Contact kindly help in meeting this important need by providing the buyer with:
documentation of the price of the product prior to or before the awarded discount was applied
(THIS MUST NOT BE FROM A LIST CREATED FOR THE ALJP PROGRAM or a list known as the ALJP Pricelist)*,
the discount percentage(s) applied to the product(s)per contract,
and the final ALJP Price.
* Some ALJP2012e Series contracts are based solely on the ALJP Price List at a one year contract term with no options to add or remove products on this list or to renew/extend contract.
This information should match the terms of the original contract.
The sales contact may then offer additional discounts above the required ALJP discounts. Buyers should be sure to keep documentation of these items and all other purchasing documentation in accessible files in the event of an audit. Buyers should proactively collect and file these supporting documents at the time of the purchase. If this can't be done by the buyer's initial sales contact listed under the ALJP contract of choice then the buyer should simply seek other sales contacts listed for that specific ALJP Contract or an equivalent product line contract under the other ALJP Contracts WHO CAN ASSIST YOU BY PROVIDING YOU WITH THIS DOCUMENTATION. Buyers must document and show purchases are valid per contract terms for audit purposes. The buyer's chosen sales contact should be knowledgable in the specific ALJP Contract terms and willing to assist with this step. Failure to obtain this supporting documentation may cause issues with State, Local, Federal and/or E-Rate audit event(s). The ALJP Administrator cannot provide this documentation for new or previous purchases made by any LEA Group Member.
