Contract Type IV (RCCI's and Jails)
AWARD BASIS - PER PERSON, PER DAY COST
The Type IV contract is awarded on the basis of a per person, per day cost to the FSMC for direct costs (food, labor and miscellaneous expenses) and a management fee. Because day students would not receive three meals per day, this contract should be used by residential child care institutions (RCCIs), Jails, Detention Facilities, etc. that have a majority of their students residing on the premises. The per person fee is composed of:
- The management fee, and
- The direct cost of operations (food, labor and miscellaneous expenses) per meal per day.

*The $10.75 figure (in this example) is the bid price the FSMC would write on the bid form
Menus used for breakfast and lunch must be for 21 days, meet the requirements of the programs and include student choices in the selections. Include all items that should be available to students at their meal service. Also, you should include a dinner and snack menu for 21 days and any special functions the SFA would like the FSMC to perform. For example, picnic lunches, award dinners, and holiday celebrations should be spelled out in the specifications. The menu must be used by the FSMC for the first 21 days of service. It sets the quality standards for future menus. Bidders use the information contained on the menu to calculate the food cost. It would be difficult for the FSMC to expand the food service program selections after the bid is awarded.
Any district approved non-contractual (not specified in the original bid) special function, or catered event that is outside the child nutrition program operation, and is provided by the food service contractor, must be billed outside the contract. The SFA has an obligation to reimburse the FSMC out of the General Fund account, not the school lunch account, for the cost of these services.
Upon contract renewal, the increase in the bid price (extension price) is limited to any increase in the NY, Northeastern New Jersey Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) for all urban consumers for the twelve month period immediately preceding the month in which the contract terminates.
