The USDA is inviting offers to sell dehydrated potatoes pursuant to the Agricultural Marketing Service for use in the National School Lunch Program and other federal food and nutrition assistance programs.

Acceptances will be announced by Nov. 9, and deliveries are to be made between Jan 1 and March 31, 2018.

Offerors who intend to use more than one processing plant and shipping point for contracts awarded under this solicitation, other than the one entered in their bids, may submit a list of their approved processing plants and shipping points. 
All prime vendors are reminded that they are prohibited from subcontracting with companies or individuals that have been suspended or debarred.

Offers must be submitted electronically via the USDA’s web-based supply chain management system. Offerors are cautioned to bid only quantities they can reasonably expect to produce and deliver.
