Please honor the integrity of this bidding process by purchasing from the awarded IASL vendor. If schools place orders with another vendor, future bids will be less aggressive and vendors may drop out of the process. Remember that the other vendors are offering you aggressive pricing to compete with the awarded vendor. If the consortium pricing goes away, prices will go up in the future and posters will no longer be furnished.
