Kipp Delta Public Schools is accepting proposals for the General Liability, Umbrella, Directors and Officers, and Worker’s Comp policies for the 2018 school year. All policies will need to go into effect on July 1, 2017.

  • The awarded insurance agent MUST have and maintain an e-mail account with a valid email address for communication between KIPP and the awarded vendor.
  • The awarded insurance agent must be licensed to write business in the state of Arkansas.

The Project will be awarded to the lowest and best overall proposal for each location that most meets proposal specifications. The proposal(s) will be weighted and evaluated by KIPP Staff Members who will perform their due diligence in completing the evaluation.

The proposal will be awarded based on pricing which is the major determinant factor; however, the experience and overall service are also important and shall play a large role in the award. Our intent is to award this comprehensive RFP to the best overall, most responsive, competitive proposer(s). Our desire is for the awarded vendors to provide comprehensive service for all insurance needs.

*Accept or Reject Proposals: KIPP Delta Public Schools reserves the right to waive any formalities and accept or reject proposals, upon the evidence (or determined by KIPP) before or after the proposed opening, that a proposer is not necessarily qualified by experience, is not in a position to perform the work specified in the time allotted, or upon evidence of collusion with intent to defraud or other illegal practice. All proposals are to be complete in every detail as required. Those that are incomplete, contain irregularities or are not in accordance with the specifications may be rejected.

*Funding : This RFP project is ultimately subject to funding as with all KIPP RFP projects. KIPP is a tax exempt organization: Proposal cost must include any and all related sales and use tax. Although KIPP is tax exempt- the Proposer(s) are responsible for any and all sales and use tax for the materials and or equipment.

*Vendors Performance: If at any time the primary awarded insurance agent fails to perform over the term of the agreement then: KIPP shall have the right to cancel insurance policies and then reserves the right to negotiate with the next best bidder.
