Camelot Illinois Seeks Proposals For Provision Of Logistics, Warehousing And Installation Of Permanent Point-Of-Sale Items

CHICAGO (Nov. 28, 2018) – Camelot Illinois today issued a request for proposal (RFP) for vendors to deliver logistics, warehousing and installation solutions for permanent point-of-sale items.

A key component of Camelot Illinois’ retail plans for fiscal year 2019 and beyond is to transform the retail experience by investing in new permanent point-of-sale (PPOS) equipment. The goal of this project is to modernize all PPOS fixtures and displays to optimize the promotion of Illinois Lottery products sold in retail stores.

The RFP invites organizations to submit proposals for the supply of services for the warehousing, logistics and installation of all PPOS items being manufactured.

This new PPOS equipment rollout across Illinois is estimated to commence in March 2019 and will involve the installation of all new PPOS in-store and disposing of old PPOS assets across approximately 5,000-7,500 lottery retail locations over an estimated 16-week rollout period.

While this RFP has assumed a 16-week program (approximately 400-500 stores per week), Camelot would like all companies that submit proposals to provide recommendations highlighting the most cost-efficient, realistic and low-risk timelines that Camelot should use to complete this program. Camelot is interested in shortening the 16-week period, without compromising on quality or cost efficiencies, if possible.

Camelot Illinois intends to secure a supplier or suppliers that can begin working on this project starting in January 2019. Camelot anticipates that installations will commence in March or April 2019, beginning with a pilot and slow ramp up, to be completed by July 2019. Camelot anticipates on-going support from August through October 2019 for this project.

Responses should be submitted by Monday, Dec. 24, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. CST to the attention of procurement-services@camelotillinois.com.

Camelot Illinois is encouraging proposals for businesses owned by minorities, women and persons with disabilities to generate Business Enterprise Program (BEP) participation.
