Envision in Wichita, KS is being awarded a fixed-price requirements type contract to provide plastic T-Shirt Bags at all U.S. commissary store locations. After the $49.8 million one-year base period runs from Sept 1/07 – Aug 31/08, another 4 one-year option periods are available. If all option periods are exercised, the contract will be completed Aug 31/12. Commissary stores are on-base shopping centers operated around the world for the benefit of US military personnel. To get an idea of the scale involved, annual sales at those commissaries exceeds $5 billion. Even their paper bag contracts aren’t small, though they are cheaper. Envision, a National Industry for the Blind Agency, was solicited and submitted an offer for this solicitation as mandated by the procurement list. The contracting activity is the Defense Commissary Agency, Revenue, Supplies & Headquarters Support Branch (AMDR) at Fort Lee, VA 23801-1800 (HDEC05-07-D-0003).
