Description

Amendment #1 Amendment 01 The purpose of this Amendment is to answer questions from the Original RFQ Questions and Answers Questions listed were taken directly from the potential vendors and given to the end user. Please see the responses that I received from the end user below. Thank you! 1) I am confused of that blank personnel in Wednesday,11 Oct 2017( Breakfast) and Monday for 16 Oct 2017( Dinner), is it included for packages or they dont take meal at that time? No breakfast meal provided on Wed, 10/11 at 0530-0730; No dinner meal provided on Monday, 10/16 at 1715-1830. 2) will we provide an additional 4 meals every day for government assistants? The approximate 300-personnel headcount estimated for each breakfast and dinner meal includes ALL categories of personnel; no additional meal prep is expected nor desired, as we intend to adhere strictly to the breakfast/dinner schedules as published. 3) Additional question,regarding of the meals (breakfast and dinner) of every day would be the same? Customer prefers a variety of main entrées (preferably no repeating entrée for the entire cycle) for dinner meals, with base guidelines for food groups adhered to both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast meals can be repetitive; main entrée for dinner meals should vary. 4) I Would like to know if the caterers can go there to see the venue beforehand. Venue is a standard, military style dining facility with cold storage, cooking and prep area (gas and electric), serving ‘carts and cold food/salad (open) coolers, and general dining area. Contract awardee can make arrangements with contract POC to see the facility/venue prior to the event start date, at the convenience of both parties.
