File Attachment:
Summary: Crowley ISD has partnered with Texas Star Security to provide district-wide armored courier services as far back as 2016. This vendor was awarded to CISD current Armored Courier Services RFP back in 2019.

On Wednesday May 13, 2020, the district received an email advising with their deepest regret, the president of the company has decided due to Covid-19, they are going to shut down their Dallas office.

Therefore, they must terminate their contract with Crowley ISD as of May 13, 2020 and an official letter will be sent in the mail.

The original period of performance of this RFP is from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, but the actual courier services will start in August of each year and finish at the end of May each year. This RFP had 4 optional years available at the agreement of both organizations. FY 2020-2021 will be optional year 1. We start services a day before school begins in August and those services are not completed until a day after the last day of school in May so that we can be in alignment with the needs of the district.
Budgetary Impact: The district has requested the next lowest bidder from this evaluated RFP to verify pricing for armored courier services with Crowley ISD including the new location and as soon as the district receives pricing, we will be able to provide that information for the Board's review and possible approval.
Recommendation: None at this time. This is a future action item.
