4. May 24th, 2013. Your RFP has been forwarded to me.  I just want to be sure this is current as there are two different years given, the front states June 17, 2012 and also on page 3 as a date due and elsewhere it is 2013.  Is it 2013?

The correct proposal due date is June 17th. 2013, not 2012.

5. May 28th, 2013.  Are you requesting just one set of proposal responses for the RFP or would you like more?

The RFP did not specify so one copy is sufficient.

6. May 30th, 2013.  On page 6 second specification it states; RFI tags and strips will be placed next to existing tags. The system must be able to read and write to the new tags without interference.

Question:-          Do you mean RFID or RFI?

This should read RFID

-          Is the “strip” EM? Are you currently using EM?

We are currently using Checkpoint RF tags, not EM strips

-          What type of “existing security tag” is on the material now?

They are 2 inch quare RF tags from an approximately 10 year old Checkpoint system. They are not RFID tags.

-          What are the gates you have now, and are they operational?

The gates we have now are operational do not function well because they are placed too far apart. They will be replaced and relocated in Phase 2 of this project.
