America Saves Program

Oakland County recognizes the benefits and savings that extended purchasing programs can offer to counties, cities, villages and townships. An RFP was issued on April 4, 2018 electronically via the Michigan Inter-governmental Trade Network (MITN) site. The RFP was evaluated by the County, and Office Depot/OfficeMax was chosen for the award. A three-year contract with an optional 2 year extension. Therefore, the County is extending its Office Supply Contract with OfficeDepot/OfficeMax to all governmental agencies that wish to participate.

Participants may purchase products on the same terms, covenants, conditions, and pricing as Oakland County, subject to any applicable laws, regulations and ordinances of the State or local governmental entity of Purchase.

The County agrees that any other governmental entity that elects to purchase under the Agreement between the County and the Contractor may do so without objection by the County.

In an effort to clarify the original America Saves agreement, the County and the Contractor understand and support that any Participating agency that piggybacks onto this contract may need customer specific products and customer specific core pricing. For example, if a client has a specific need for "green or recycled" products. This agreement will allow for that participating agency to work with the Contractor to load those items or any others onto a customer specific core list.

Further it is understood that any Participating agency may request to modify specific terms to meet their requirements. For example, if the Contractor and the Participating agency agree that the Contractor will pay the agency rebates even though some invoices have been paid beyond terms, Oakland County understands and agrees to allow specific agencies to modify specific terms with the Contractor.
