Sorcity Welcome Bid Overview (listening optional)


Sorcity at 469-877-0510



The Range Austin is accepting bids for Furniture for their new location opening in Austin, TX.  Please read this complete ebid, all email notices, and the Sorcity Member Agreement, in full, so you understand the bid guidelines and are properly prepared for this bid if your company qualifies and would like to participate.

The Buyer would like to award to one Supplier who is able to provide the products, quality and service-levels outlined in this bid document. After the bidding ends, the Buyer may contact several low bidders to further understand their capabilities and evaluate equivalents and additional benefits before an award is made (see Key Dates below).  



To ensure the bid process remains fair, any direct contact with the Buyer regarding this opportunity, during or after this bid process, until the Buyer contacts you, will cause you to be in violation of the bid process and be eligible for penalties (see Sorcity Member Agreement).



If you are able to provide and bid on all items listed and meet all terms and conditions stated, then you are invited to bid in this ebid. You may not bid otherwise.  


Please perform honorably.  Bids will only be accepted through this ebid.  Bidding in any other manner, or attempting to sell directly to one of the Buyer's locations will disqualify you for this business for the term of the award and will remove you from good standing with the Buyer and Sorcity for future business.  We look forward to your participation and help in maintaining the integrity of this fair and objective bid process.


Please comply with the instructions in the Bid Notice email you were sent informing you of this opportunity including any reminders and updates provided.


Line Item Worksheet:  (LIW)

  1. Sorcity is providing you this Line Item Worksheet as one of the bid documents, to list your per unit pricing, which will automatically calculate the “Total” bid price. Only the “Total” from the Worksheet may be entered as your bid in the online Event. Do not attempt to enter line item prices online or your bid will be inaccurate. 

  2. Please be sure to save the Line Item Worksheet to your desktop first, and then use it to work up your Bid.  This will allow you to promptly return this worksheet once the bidding ends.

  3. Please follow the instructions including filling in all items highlighted in green such as your Dun & Bradstreet number and Unit Prices where noted, as it is part of this bid package.

  4. The furniture items in the Line Item Worksheet are listed with respect to the room in which they will be placed, therefore you will see duplicate items, since for example, the same model chair may be placed in multiple rooms.

  5. In order to mitigate mistakes and ensure that the ebid Opening Bid value accommodates your pricing, you must email your initial pricing in the Line Item Worksheet to Sorcity at least 2-days in advance of placing your opening bids online per the Key Dates below.

  6. YOUR COMPLETED FINAL LINE ITEM WORKSHEET IS A REQUIREMENT AND MUST BE RETURNED TO SORCITY WITHIN (1) HOUR AFTER THE BID ENDS, regardless of your bid position. Failure to do so may render your bid unacceptable and invoke penalties.

  7. Substitutes, of equivalent or better quality and performance, will be allowed for those items highlighted in yellow. If you bid a substitute, then you must enter the description in the "Substitute Make and OEM Number" columns, highlighted in yellow. If you can provide the original item listed, but choose to bid a Substitute, you must also provide your per unit price for the original item where noted, in case the substitute does not pass the Buyer's review.



These are requirements specific to this purchase:

  1. Shipping, unpacking, assembly, and positioning costs for all furniture is to be quoted as a separate line item and not included in the per- unit pricing for each piece of furniture.

  2. All items are to be delivered, unpackaged, assembled, and moved to their proper room and positioned by the currently estimated date of 10/1/16 but NOT before 9/17/16, and likely not after 10/15/16.  Any change in construction may impact this date and will be communicated to the awarded Supplier.

Online Bid Procedures:

Other criteria:

  • Update 7/5 - You must bid on all items listed in this Event.  Suppliers may bid by Line Item, and the Buyer may award by Line Item.  Bid as if you are being awarded all of the Line Items you price but you may add a market up if you are not awarded all of the  Line Items priced.  Please bid as many Line Items as you can supply as the Buyer would like to award to as few Suppliers as possible

  • Payment terms are Net 30 Days.

  • Regarding substitutes: The Buyer has already completed an initial evaluation process to determine the furniture package they would like on site, so there should not be a significant number of substitutes bid.  If requested after the bid, for those items you chose to bid as substitutes, pictures must me be made available for the Buyer's review.  The Buyer may also request to physically evaluate some items, should the pictures not be sufficient, so please plan accordingly for this.

  • Durability of material is important since this is a gun range and equipment may come in contact with furniture which must hold up to such equipment and resist scratching and easy damage.

  • Similar items that may be purchased later, that are not included on this list, must be offered at similar discounts.
