US government seeking to buy large quantity of wild salmon
The United States Department of Agriculture is asking for bids on 324,000 pounds of frozen wild salmon fillets.
Bids on the salmon, which will be used for the National School Lunch Program and other Federal Food and Nutrition Assistance Programs, must be made by 29 March.
The USDA wants the frozen salmon fillets delivered in cases of 40, one-pound packages.
USDA is requesting that 216,000 pounds of the salmon be delivered to Kansas City, Missouri, and 108,000 be delivered to Nampa, Idaho. Deliveries must be made to the two locations between 16 March and 30 September.
"Offerors who intend to use more than one processing plant and shipping point for contracts awarded under this solicitation, other than the processing plant and shipping point entered in their bids, may submit a list of their approved processing plants and shipping points on a separate sheet of paper to be uploaded in WBSCM, and to be submitted with their bids," USDA said in the offer.
Details of the USDA bid can be viewed through the WBSCM portal.
