Total Amount of Award:$6,800,000.00 (Total Dollar Value Only/Includes Any Renewal Options)
Estimated/Actual Value Description:Estimated total is based on estimated maximum of 57,000 Service Hours allotted for the combined multi-tiered contract award across all 3 contracts. These are projections of IDES' maximum need for services for the positions identified within the IFB. The Agency makes NO guarantee as to the total number of Specialist service hours it may procure from Vendor(s) during the contract term, regardless of Vendor's tier ranking, and does not guarantee any work under the secondary and tertiary contracts. IDES may procure all, some or none of the Specialist hours for any or all Specialist positions from Vendor. IDES shall allocate, in its discretion, any Specialist hours it may procure from Vendor among the Specialists furnished by Vendor for the pertiaining Specialist positions.

IDES may re-allocate service hours in a contract among Specialists furnished for differing Specialist positions when individual projects are completed or extended and Specialists are rolled off the contract. If service hours at a given hourly rate are re-allocated to Specialists furnished at a different hourly rate (due to different Specialist position categories), IDES will prorate the original and re-allocated hourly rates based on the original and re-allocated service hours provided by the Specialist.
