To Whom It May Concern:

The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) invites you to submit a quotation for a multi-function printer to be used at our Portland, Oregon office.
CRITFC is a subdivision of the tribal governments of the Warm Springs, Yakama, Umatilla, and Nez Perce tribes. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, CRITFC has been active in managing fisheries and putting fish back in the rivers since 1977. For more information on CRITFC and its Enforcement department, please visit our website at
Although the below listed requirements and details are subject to change or modification, please match them as closely as possible with your quotation. All final specifications shall be negotiated and finalized by purchase order or contract.
CRITFC is entitled to purchase from the GSA schedule, but is not required to do so. You may submit either GSA or open market pricing.
We anticipate that the contractor whose proposal is the best solution for our project will be selected in March 2017. Quotes must be valid through June 30, 2017. We will notify all contractors, whether they are disqualified, rejected, or unsuccessful although responsive. Please also submit DUNS numbers for your company to facilitate our credential evaluation.
Selection will be based on the ability of the proposed solution to meet the specifications below, and the anticipated price of the solution. I will be the single point of contact for all inquiries and correspondences. Please send your quotations and three references for your company, via email, by the deadline of February 27, 2017
We thank you for your time, effort, and interest in meeting our office equipment needs.

Thank you,
