Locksmith Materials Documentation

Tuesday, September 27, 2016
The District of Columbia Department of General Services ("DGS" or " Department"), Contracts & Procurement Division, is issuing this sole source procurement for an immediate need for the following:
Locksmith Materials from Blaydes lndustries, lnc.
Blaydes lndustries, lnc. is the only locksmith vendor, within the District, who exclusively provides key blanks, for District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) sites. These specials key blanks are designated for DCPS buildings only. These special key blanks are embossed with "Do No Duplicate" on the key and by law; they are honored by all Locksmith companies, not to duplicate. This system was instated as a security precaution to keep the DCPS buildings secure. A purchase order, with Blaydes lndustries, is needed to acquire the necessary key blanks and associated locksmith materials.
Failure to provide these services will place District students and property at a security risk.
