Several contracts covering a range of purchases and work, from laptops to lighting to emergency demolition at an elementary school, are on the agenda when Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders meet in special session Monday in Fairfield.
The school district, the Solano County’s largest, solicited bids for audio-visual systems, and the business services department recommends awarding a $118,000 contract, one of several competing bids, to the Eidim Group, an audio-visual consulting firm in Buena Park.
In accord with standard public agency policies, winning bids typically are awarded to the lowest bidder, but Eidim’s is not, according to agenda documents. The lowest bid, at $115,000, was submitted by TIG, or Technology Integration Group, a company with offices in Sacramento and nationwide.
Information on agenda documents did not clearly state why Eidim is the recommended contract.
