Licensing Issues


Each computer shall come with one Microsoft Windows license.

(10 Home or equivalent) (Lawton Public Schools is enrolled in the Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions agreement that allows us upgrade rights to windows 10 Enterprise or Education)




Lawton Public Schools reserves the right to reject any and all quotes, waive any and all technicalities, and award all or any part of a contract in a manner that is in the best interest of Lawton Public Schools.

Vendor Qualifications


To ensure the integrity of the purchased products, only the manufacturer of the specified computers or an authorized reseller of this manufacturer will be acceptable. If you are a reseller you must submit a letter from the manufacturer specifying your status as an authorized reseller. Additionally, the reseller must be a certified warranty service center for this type of computers. Copies of the Reseller Certification and Service Repair Certification must be included when submitted.




The vendor will be responsible for all shipping costs. This includes the shipping of the new orders, and the shipment of defective parts that are under warranty back to the vendor and the return of replacements for these warranty parts to the Instructional Media Center Technology Department, Lawton Public Schools.


Demo Units


 Lawton Public Schools invites vendors to submit demonstration units of their proposed laptops, provided these demonstration units are provided at no cost to Lawton Public Schools, including shipping and return shipping.


Vendor Warranty


All computers shall have at least a four-year warranty on parts. Lawton Public Schools shall be allowed to be a self-maintainer. Any registration cost associated with being a self-maintainer will be borne by the reseller or the manufacturer. After being certified by the computer manufacturer as a self-maintainer, Lawton Public Schools may choose to complete any warranty repairs itself. The vendor must pay for all shipping to and from Lawton Public Schools.


Of all components that are replaced under the warranty program, the replacement components must be of the same capabilities or greater and, if it is a processor or motherboard, must be the same manufacturer. All components, whether original to the computer or warranty replacements, must be "new" or "authentic", or refurbished by the manufacturer. All refurbished equipment must have the same or better functionality and same or better quality as the original equipment that came with the computer.




All quotes submitted will be evaluated according to the criteria listed below. If any of the required elements, such as manufacturer's reseller certificate, are missing, inaccurate, or altered, the entire submittal will be rejected as incomplete. The required elements are:

• Vendor Certifications

• References

• Detailed description with product specifications

• Warranty

• Price


Evaluation is a three-step process. The first step involves ascertaining if the submittal is complete, accurate, and meets the requirements. The second step is comparing the value of the proposed solutions which have successfully passed the first step process. Although price is the most important factor in comparing value, it is not the only factor: comparison of the vendors' service proposals, quality of proposed solution, reference checks, vendor reputation, and other intangible factors are used. The last step is testing the proposed equipment within the Lawton Public Schools' network environment. All decisions made by Lawton Public Schools Instructional Media Center Technology Department in the evaluative process are final.




Lease to purchase options would be preferred. (If available terms should be submitted with quote)

{Vendor will not be disqualified if lease to purchase option is not offered.}


All requests for payment must be made to the Lawton Public Schools for review, for approval, and for payment. All invoices must include "Net 30" terms.
